Storage folio


I was recently clearing out a load of old magazines and I came across a guide for how to create a card storage folio.

The original guide can be found in Papercraft Essentials issue 181.

I have tweaked it slightly but all the measurements are below.

A video of how to create this can be found on my YouTube channel by following this link.


Card stock needed:

Two pieces 19.5 × 22.5cm

Two pieces 25 × 20cm

One piece 25 × 10cm

One piece 25 × 12cm

One piece 2 × 25cm

Two pieces of 12 x 12" DSP

5 pieces of DSP 19.5 × 25cm

1 DSP 5.5 × 25cm

1 DSP 4 × 25cm

1 DSP 2.5 × 25cm

I hope you find this useful, if you create this or any of my other tutorials please tag me on social media so I can see what you have created.

Dome display card

The great thing about being on a design team, is that it give you a brilliant excuse to try out card styles you have been meaning to do for a while and not got round to!

This month for the Paper Fundays Challenge (link below) we were kindly provided with images by Artsy Stamper (also linked below)

I decided to make a dome display card to showcase the image and followed a tutorial by Sam Calcott of mixed up crafts to do so.

The supplies I used were:

Tonic studios cardstock.

Daisy Mae designs torn edge nesting ovals

Wonderful Sweetness from The Works

Glossy Accents 

Acetate and plain cardstock from Hobbycraft 

An embossing folder from Papercraft Society box no 18 by Card Making Magic

Image and sentiment from Artsy Stamper

I am really pleased with how this card came out, I hope you will check out the Artsy Stamper who has many beautiful designs and why not come and join in at Paper Fundays Challenge.
