Born to be an Adventurer

I had a lot of fun making the second folio project that was offered free by Younique Scrapbooking Store in May. I decided to focus this project on some of the beautiful camping adventures Sean and Tanis have had over the past few years.

Front of Folio

This entire project was completed using black cardstock, 3 sets of magnets, the paper pack collection of Echo Park’s “Little Lumber JACK” patterned paper, stickers and chipboard accents, ribbon, and a tree from a chipboard collection by Scrapaholics, called “Snowy Trees”. The title “Born to be an Adventurer” was completed using American Crafts “Comfort” thickers. Two sets of magnets hold the right flap firming in place to close the folio.

Opened Folio

When the folio opens, it reveals lots of hidden treasures. On the left is an accordion style picture gallery that can hold up to 9 photos. It is held closed with ribbon of your choice. The main body of the folio is also held closed by a flap with a magnet (bottom centre).

Accordion Fold Out – Side B – Holds Up to 4 Photos

When the main flap of the inside folio is opened, it reveals a waterfall of pictures, with plenty more opportunity to add more photos, notes or memorabilia. This little folio just keeps giving and giving!

There are so many ways to use this special portfolio, and I’m sure there will be another one in my future. I’m very excited to send this special project out west to my son and his fiance! I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it for them.

You can find the videos to make this project on the Younique Scrapbook Store Facebook page. There are two video’s to watch to complete the project. Wishing you fun in the creative journey!
