The Winter Fun Folio Album made using Eileen Hull’s New Folio Journal Die from Sizzix*
and the Carta Bella Paper Company Winter Market Collection*.
Today, I’m participating with Eileen Hull and Teams for a Chapter 1 Release Party Blog Hop using
the New Folio Journal Die*. Just wait till you see all of the fun options the New Folio Journal Die* has in store for you!
Here is my Album using the New Folio Journal Die*.
It is a fun Winter Themed album with four smaller albums tucked inside.
It’s the perfect album for adding little nooks and crannies. This album was fun to make.
I even added an Antique Bronze Hasp Latch Hook* to keep everything securely in place.
For fun, I will be giving my album away to one lucky commenter.
(Information on the Hop and chances to win prizes at the bottom of the post.)

- The album pieces are die-cut using Sizzix White Matboard Sheets*, which is the perfect size for cutting long pieces. (You will need to cut the album pieces twice.)
- Before I assembled my album, I painted both sides of the album pieces with DecoArt Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint in Night Sky.
- The two smaller rectangle die-cut pieces shown in the bottom right corner of the picture comes with the die. They are used for creating pockets with the outer flaps. I painted them dark blue as well.
- I used paper and stickers from the Winter Market Collection Kit* from Carta Bella for my Album.
Album Making Tip: I like to use my Xyron Creative Station* to add adhesive to my paper before sticking it onto the matboard. It adds a complete adhesive layer with puckering or wrinkles.
Here’s a picture of the album when it’s open.
- On one end, I left the flap in tack, I use it to corral the mini-albums in the center of the spine.
- On the other end, I cut the flap down and created a pocket to hold a small removable album.
- I used Rapid Fuse Adhesive* with the matboard to adhere to the pocket pieces. It not only dries extremely fast, but it holds well too.
(I apologize, there are too many details to write a full tutorial on the album.)
- I used Blue and White Twine to attach the three small albums to the spine.
- Each little album has several blank pages to add pictures and journaling.
Here is a close up picture of the back pocket.
The Mini-Album easily slips in and out of the pocket.
There is plenty of room in the pocket for adding pictures or a second small album.

What a gorgeous Folio Journal Sue! The paper you picked is perfect and just goes right along with your farmhouse vibe. Some lucky person is going to love winning this! Thanks so much for hopping with us 🙂
Love the back pocket! Does it take a long time for the paint to dry? Does it cause any warping with the Matt board? Thank you for being so creative.
I like using DecoArt multi-surface acrylic paint because it dries fast and doesn’t warp the matboard. It also has a little bit of a sheen to it. I did need to give the matboard several coats of paint to cover it and I gave it a light sanding with a sanding block afterwards to make sure it was smooth.
Such talent and love your design! Can’t wait to see more from such a versatile die!
What a beautiful folio Sue! love the papers you used on this – so crisp and clean just like winter! xx
