Crafting Retreat Day 3 ...

Good morning. We are on Day 3 of the St. Louis Missouri Retreat from earlier this month. Our final project is a Folio, and I'm sharing a LOT of pictures.

The base of the Folio was made using Medium Weight Chipboard that was pre-cut to the size needed, Black Artisan Linen CardstockBasic Grey Large Magnets. Once the Folio was complete, we decorated it using the Authentique Vintage Christmas Collection Pack.


Open #1

The next batch of photo's show what is on the left side of the panel when opened.

Clear Photo Sleeves

Pocket for putting mementos.

 Here is a picture of the front and back cover of the Folio.

The Folio provides you with a LOT of space for journal-ling and adding photo's of your holiday celebrations. You can buy the complete Vintage Christmas Tutorial Kit to make one these for yourself. The Kit comes with everything you need, and includes a link to the Tutorial on how to make it.

We also received the Authentique Pastime Collection Pack at the retreat. This set would be perfect for a Vacation Book.

The Retreat was hosted by Tamra Merrill, Owner of Country Craft Creations. Tamra has a couple of FB Groups ... Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations is were they have the Design Team and share how they make all of these beautiful projects. Country Craft Creations Creative Cafe Swaps is exactly what it sounds like ... a Swap Group. Tutorials are provided by the DT for the projects that are swapped. A LOT of FUN happens in both of these groups.

I'll be back tomorrow with some pictures I took the day I arrived from our walk to and from the St. Louis Arch to our hotel, and the two (2) prizes I won. 

Until next time, Enjoy!
