I'm back to share a super fun project using Tim's Collections Folio and Compass Blueprint stamps and framelits. I received the stamp and framelits set as my prize for being a winner (in June) of Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 which makes it extra special to me. All participants of CC3C are working from Tim's Compendium of Curiosities 3 book and are asked not to share the techniques out of respect for Tim. I can share my process with you so here goes.

I love the By The Sea collection by Graphic 45 and used it exclusively to decorate my folio.
You can see the stamp and framelits set on my front cover.
I die cut the layers and popped them up with foam tape.
I stamped the compass image on ivory cardstock and colored it with Distress Markers. Then I went over the entire image with walnut stain distress ink to age it.
This is the "spine" of the folio and it has three tabs but I wanted more so I folded it to get six instead. I secured it with double stick tape and covered the edges with paper.
This is how it looks when you open it, there are two flaps that fold out and both are decorated with paper and I added a strip of paper across so I could slide in journaling tabs from the same collection. On the left page I fussy cut a mermaid and sailboat and I used borders to create a pocket. The tag is a #8 manila tag by Ranger and I covered both sides with paper and added two Idea-ology tickets held in place by a mini clip.
The papers in this collection are SO pretty!
I'm rushed for time so I don't have close ups of the tags/pages I created for the center page but hopefully I can edit this and add some over the weekend.
Another fun border was added to the flap.
One lucky winner will receive this fantastic prize!
I'm off to get this linked up before I miss the challenge altogether. It's been a crazy week but those of us in the US are about to get a nice break with a three day weekend. I certainly hope everyone enjoys their holiday and stays safe. Also, I want to thank the Curiosity Crew for choosing my Faded Layers card as the winner of challenge #8. What a thrill!
Thanks for looking today!
