So, I wanted to share with you the latest project I have created using Eileen Hull’s new folio die. I wanted to create something different so I went with this Baby Boy folio. I kind of wanted it to be like a mini scrapbook, showing some cute baby pics etc. 

Here is how I created it....

Step 1: The covers & doily were cut out

Step 2: I chose a lovely blue background with hearts on. I cut it slightly shorted than the covers, so it had a white edge around to break up the pattern

Step 3: I then used hot glue to attach the covers to make my folio

Step 4: I wanted to keep the colour theme going but I wanted a different pattern, so I went for this to cover the inside of the folio...

Step 5: Now the fun begins! Time to start designing and decorating! So I started by adding the gorgeous doily to the front cover

Step 6: I took the MDF words and painted them a light, pastel blue. I gave them a couple of coats of the acrylic paint to make sure they had a good coverage! Once dry, I then added white pen detail just to add a bit of detail

Step 7: I added the words to the front of the folio. I added a few buttons to the bottom left hand corner

Step 8: Whilst thinking about what else I wanted to add to the front cover, I made a start on designing the inside. I started by adding a little holder in the corner so I could store cards or photos behind it and to keep everything together within the folio

Step 9: I wanted to add a notebook within the folio, so precious memories could be recorded in there. Children grow up so fast that it’s always good to record precious memories and important milestones! So here, I have started to cut out and construct a notebook...

Step 10: I wanted to add some ribbon to the cover (yes, I am a ribbon addict, who isn’t?? Haha) Once the decorating was complete, I then strapped it to the spine of the folio using silk thread...

Step 11: The last and final step was to design each page...
