File Folder Album

I saw Kristina's (kwerner design blog) directions for a small file folder album, and thought I'd give it a try. I actually had to go to Staples and buy a whole box (1oo) of files because I didn't have ANY in my house. Even though this is only half a file folder, it was still a lot of work, time, paper, and I don't know if I would do it again! I'm the kind of scrapper that likes to get a project done in an hour or less, and this was NOT that project.. ah well.

I had a bunch of old photos of me given to me and they have sat in my photo box for a LONG time. I find it SO hard to find papers to match that orangey-70's colour, but these papers by Cosmo Cricket worked pretty well.

Here's the cover. The monogram is a metal letter by American Crafts, and the stamps are Technique Tuesday.

Supplies: Paper: (Kraft, Cosmo Cricket, MME); Stamps: Technique Tuesday, Autumn Leaves; Ink: Jumbo Java (Versamagic); Accessories: Copic markers, EK punch, MME star die cut, WeR brads and ribbon, metal letter (American Crafts).
