Design Team Creation using Carta Bella Summer Splash
Design Team Project for Country Craft Creations.
What a fun fun collection this was to work with. Summery for sure! I've created a Folio/Waterfall Album, making sure there are plenty of spaces for all those summery fun pictures. Whether it's beach pics or backyard pool photos, this collection works beautifully to cover all those scenes.
I also wanted there to be a place to 'store' this folio...so I created a wave box to keep it in. This way it can be displayed nicely in open view....or it can be put away...either way it keeps your folio together in one place.
Out of the box holder the folio is a nice large size: 9 1/2 X 6 3/4
The box size is: 7 1/2 X 4
On the front of the cover I have fussy cut 2 bands of beachy sayings from the pattern paper and matted them making for a slanted double belly band. I also matted one of the awesome chipboard pieces and used it as a bottom stop. A large cut a part was matted and slid comfortably under the bands and into the stop. Perfect place for more photos!
The backside of the folio is also used to hold another matted cut a part, perfect for an additional photo or journaling. Another beachy saying was fussy cut and matted to create the belly band and another cool chipboard piece was matted to act as the bottom stop.
Nice large matted cut a parts from those belly bands.
Opening the folio...wow! Lots of spaces for lots of photos! The pattern papers and embellishments from that collection are just so cool and easy to use. More photo mats could be placed in the slots if desired as there is ample space. The stickers from the collection really add to the overall appearance as well.
Oh yes, there is yet another section to this folio! Turn that last page to find even MORE spaces for photos! This holds tons!!
Let's start with page one and remove the matted tags to show the layout of the page
See the slits in the first page...those are the mat holders. The matted tags stay securely in place in those slits due to the assembly of the page adding 'holders' to the backside. Lots of space for lots of matted photos.
A nice close up of the first page
Middle section of the folio. The first page (inside front cover) and this section are both the large sections holding photo mats: 6 1/4 X 4 1/4
Photo mats removed to show the holders
The inside back section
The large flapped mat slides on top of the smaller ones and slips nicely into the bottom slot. This holds all the flapped smaller mats in place securely. Photo mats are smaller for this section of the folio: 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 with a 4 1/4 X 2 flap
Closing that back flap exposes the additional storage space on the backside!
Removing the long tall photo mat that slips into the bottom front slot and the very top slot (which holds everything in together nicely), you can see the additional smaller photo mats with their flaps.
Such a super fun project with an easy to use collection from Carta Bella.
Here is a picture of the slotted pages before they were attached to the covers:
This is the 'backside' of the pages. The photo pocket stops are in place and the pages are scored, folded, cut and taped ready to install to the covers.
