Botanical Tea_ File Folder Tag Album

I used papers in the  Graphic 45 Botanical Tea collection, with accent papers coordinating by SU.  Edge die stack is   Spellbinder's S5-180, accented with pearls, Wink of Stella and burnished with blue and pink inks.  Butterflies are Les Papillons 2 by  Spellbinders (S4-390).  All edges burnished with Distress inks, and matted designer paper on all the folds. The chipboard tag is from the Botanical Tea Collection by Graphic 45.

There are four inside pages:  Below are the back two.   The "thinking of you edge" is from  is an Impresson Obsession die (DIE 235-M)available at  Simon Says Stamps. The gilded rose is a watercolor project and is a Gina K. Designs stamp.  The Butterfly on the left is part of the Les Papillion set, used on the front, and cut of the same color paper as the top matte but brushed heavily with white Wink of Stella.  Both mattes are embossed with Intricate Swirls by Paper Studio. Tags are from the Graphic 45 collection. The corner design is a Fiskars corner punch.

These are the front two pages.  These are not quite complete.  Watercolor and distress ink roses are embossed with gold SU EP, line detail is a sticker, the  Mava stamp embossed in Glacier Ice  EP reads:  "Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as Art." (Maya Angelou.)   This cutout is accented with Wink of Stella and 3d Crystal Glaze edged butterflies from the SU embosslits Butterfly set.  Again the tags and backing are from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper stamp and die collection.

My friend and I will be teaching this technique, suggested by AJ Otto at Splitcoast Stampers in her Accordion File Folder tutorial in our next meeting of the Sun City Papers 'N Pixels Club.   This is the front of her Accordion  File Folder Tag Album. She used fussycut graphics and papers from various Digital Scrapbooking Kits.  See her amazing paper projects In Reene's Room

Here are some of our Papers 'N Pixels members starting their tag albums at the 1/21 meeting.
They had a blast with this project, and looked forward to putting the finishing touches on them at home.

Here's our Member, Betsy, with the stunning Anniversary gift she made for friends.
