Craft Club Folio inspiration: by Louise Crosbie

Hello again.

Im back with another Paco Nuñez inspired folio to show you. It’s just one more example of what you could do with the folios we’re going to be making at craft club in June. The folio will change look depending on the colour of card you use and the style of papers. You can go clean and neat, pretty and romantic, fun and bright etc. my natural leaning is towards a vintage or steampunk vibe. 

This time, I’ve used the “Sir Vagabond: Fantasy World” paper set by Stamperia. I mostly used the Background set for it but there are a couple of bits here and there from the main set, like the cut out cards etc too. 
I’ve even started decorating this one with chipboards and ephemera. And I’ve addd some gesso, paints and inks to get my vintage look.

As my husband and I are avid steampunk enthusiasts and attend events etc, we have lots of photos that would suit this folio really well. I just struggle to add them and cover the pretty papers 😂

I’ll probably add flaps to add the photos to so I can still see the pretty papers when I lift the flap.
Meanwhile I’ve simply laid them on to get an idea of what photos I’ll use. But they’re not attached in any way for now.

if you decide to join us at craft club, the cost of the class will simply be for shop expenses and that includes the five sheets of 12x12 card you need to build the folio, tea/coffee and chocolate/biscuits. 

You can bring your chosen paper collection with you (or buy a collection in the shop) to cover your folio. But be aware you will need a minimum of 8 sheets of 12x12 not including any cut out pages. Once you’ve built the folio and covered it with your chosen papers, it’s up to you how you want to decorate it.
