You and Me Silly We Will Be!

A fun, silly, and photography filled weekend left me with tons of funny cell phone pics. My goddaughter is moving out of state so I wanted to make her something special before she moved.

I had a Tim Holtz Small Folio that I bought a long time ago. I love the idea of the folio but didn't know how to go about using it. With pictures, stencils, spray paint and a glass of wine I started. I started by using gesso and painted the whole folio and then used stencils and spray paint to finish it.

I downloaded all my cell phone pics to my computer and printed them out.
Inside the folio is this piece that I didn't really know what I would do with it.
Thank goodness for You Tube!

I added all the layers first before I attached it to the inside of the folio.

Here is what the inside looks like.........

I decided to use black so the pictures would pop off the page.
Love using the white pen too!

Rub-Ons on some pages.

I'm so glad I had lots of pics!

This is the last page. This opens to a larger picture.

This picture was taken at the beach.

This was very time consuming.
That's why I don't scrapbook; it's never ending.
I had fun making this. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. What a fabulous thing to do for your goddaughter - no doubt she's over the moon with it. And it's obvious that there's a wonderful bond between the two of you.

  2. Thank you so much for making that for me! I'm going to cherish it forever. :)

  3. It is wonderful! I love the black back ground and I'm sure she will love the time you took to make this!

  4. What a wonderful way to record and remember such fun times- this turned out beautiful Karenliz!!

  5. Time consuming, but a lovely lasting memory which with no doubt will be cherished a lot.

  6. I love this and very creative. It definitely reflects your relationship. I love the last picture. So sweet.
