Ancestry Accordian File Folder Album

Hello to my fellow followers! HAPPY THURSDAY!!! I just want to point out that I HAVE HIT OVER 10,000 hits on my blog!!! I want to do some blog candy, but just can't afford to at the moment due to a Branson trip coming up in 2 WEEKS! Can you tell I'm excited??? Hee hee! And my hubby will be home for 4 days with the kids BY HIMSELF!!! Now he gets to see how it is when he's gone on the road. I am hoping he'll appreciate me EVEN MORE! Hee hee!

Well onto this cute little album I made! I got the instructions from the splitcoast stampers site. HERE is the link to the instructions.

tags and silhouettes:

All cuts were from the Heritage cartridge, except the tags. The tags were cut with Plantin Schoolbook. I used Bazzill cardstock on the front of the pockets. I used Recollections cardstock for the background and the dark brown cuts. I used DCWV doubled up with my ATG tape for the tags. I used a prima flower on the front cover and distressed it with distress ink. I chalked the edges on just about everything, using Dew Drop Chalk ink in Purple Hydrangia, and I also used Timber Brown StazOn ink to give a distressed edge look on the paper adhesive ribbon. I used regular cinnamon stickles to decorate the brown cardstock, and straw distress stickles for the clock, lamp, and feather pen. I used a left over paper that I had from the tree cut out, and made it into a stencil, and got the tree images on the tags. I spritzed with Tim Holtz's version of glimmer mist. I hope the person I made it for really likes it!

Please leave a comment and let me know you stopped by. Let me know what you think of my creations! GOOD OR BAD! I would love to hear from YOU! Have a great day!
