When I showed you my Neverending Memories Folio Album back in February 2015, I hadn’t filled it up with pictures yet. Recently someone bought it from me and asked me to fill it with pictures of their dogs. Which means I can now show you how a folio album such as this one can look with actual photos inside!
If you’d like to create this folio album yourself, you can do so relatively easily and with only one 12×12 inch design paper collection (plus cardstock of course), with help of the tutorial in my Etsy shop (120 pages with 430 pictures of the step-by-step process).
So here we go, hope you feel extra inspired by this picture-filled folio album!
I’m very pleased to share with you today a unique design that I recently finished. I’m calling it a Folio Album, and this particular one I dubbed Neverending Memories. It’s a great design that allows you to store (or take with you) your piece as a neat mini album (the album aspect of the folio album), while folding it out on your table when you want to showcase your photos in one fairly large but still very manageable overview (the folio part).
I used 17 sheets of 12×12″ decorative paper to create it, which keeps it well within range of one pack of design paper – keeping it reasonably affordable to create. I used the stunningly teal Winterbird design paper collection by Tilda. You’ll also need some cardstock of course, as well as some embellishments of your choice.
It’s somewhat easier to create than an actual mini album, since there’s no binding of pages, nor any chipboard that needs to be turned into an album cover & spine. I really enjoyed designing it, and had great fun creating it!
And: I went the extra mile and wrote a tutorial for you all 🙂 . It has 120 pages and holds 430 pictures! You can check it out in my Etsy shop, where it’s offered as a direct download pdf file.
Have fun watching the video and let me know what you think!

Sometimes we’re surprised by an invitation from a friend to come celebrate something with her. Like in this case, my friend invited me to dinner in her new house – that same evening! So I needed a quick card that wouldn’t take me the whole day to finish. The Tilda Winterbird cards & tags pad offered just the right solution, I embellished one of the cards while following the original pattern of the card itself, simply adding texture and dimension.
Most of the flowers and other embellishments are from nameless brands in my stash, but two of them are by Prima Marketing: the rose in the right hand corner is from Prima’s Rondelle collection; the larger cream flower just above that is from their Songbird collection.
