To The Beach! Folio

Hello! Jenn here today, sharing with you this fun folio I created using the newly released dies from Tutti Designs along with the Seafarer paper collection from Authentique!

For my fun beach folio, I have used three of the 11 newly released beach themed dies from Tutti

I used dies from the Tutti 414 - Dotted Nesting Rectangles set as well
I also used
Distress Ink Fired Brick and Stormy Sky
Distress Pain Picket Fence
Adhesive tape runner
Glue stick
Foam adhesive
Navy cardstock
Medium weight chipboard
All of the designer papers, cutouts, and sticker elements are from Authentique's Seafarer Collection

This folio card started as a base in which I used a tutorial by Kathy Wright Clement. Kathy has some great tutorials for fun folds and folios on her YouTube channel HERE.
Once my base was built, I added lots of fun embellishments, cut-outs, sentiments, and journaling cards. I added many elements on the pages to allow for pictures to easily be added as well. Please enjoy the following picture by picture walkthrough of this fun folio!
I absolutely love the new mermaid die! She easily can be added anywhere like a paperclip!

For the new ship in a bottle die, I adhered it to a patterned paper for a standout effect and then fussy cut, punched a hole, added jute and an anchor charm to create this super fun tag insert!
I used the dotted nesting rectangle dies to create the matting for some of the pages. I love how they add a touch of texture with the dots!
I used chipboard to create tabs in the folds of these pages. They also spell out Under the Sea when the folio is closed. I just love all the fun elements you can add to a folio!
For another tag element here I used the seashell corner die and adhered only the outer edge to the paper to allow for a picture to be slipped in. There's that adorable mermaid peeking out again! As you can see by using the inner part of her face she can be clipped on anywhere!
The mattes in the background were cut with the Dotted nesting rectangles dies. This was also done to create the journaling card.

Once you build a base for a fun fold card or folio such as this, there are endless possibilities to what you can create!
