Monogram Portfolio

Hello there - hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday!  I had a "Seriously FUN" day with my Noodles Club yesterday!!  One of our projects was the Monogram Portfolio that I had posted during our Love at First Stamp Blog Hop in March.  I had quite a few comments for the directions and now that I have done this with my club I am posting the directions that we used to make the portfolio!

Monogram Portfolio

Using Designer Series Paper cut to 8 ½ x 12
With 12” side at top of score tool, score at 5 ¾ & 6 ¼
Next, using Crumb Cake stock measuring 4 ½ x 7 ½
On 7 ½ “side, score at ½”, 1”, 6 ½” & 7”
On 4 ½” side, score at 3 ½” & 4”
Use bone folder to create crisp folds and then cut out corners as per diagram below & add Sticky Strip as shown:

Using Raspberry Ripple Card stock measuring 6 3/8” x ¾” cut with edgelit.

Stamp flourish & bird from Everything Eleanor on the front pocket, spritz with Glimmer Mist,  adhere Raspberry Ripple strip along the top of the pocket & adhere the pocket to the inside page of the portfolio.
Using a piece of Crumb Cake cut to 5 ¼” x 8” – run the bottom edge through the edgelit & then add the matching border – spritz with Glimmer Mist.
With a very Vanilla piece measuring 3 ¼ x 4 – stamp the image as shown above in Crumb Cake & run through the accent framelit.  Color in the flowers using an aqua painter & Primrose Petals Ink.

With a Raspberry Ripple piece of card stock measuring 5 x 4 run through the next size bigger framelit & then run through the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.
With a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper, cut out your initial from Typeset Alphabet set.  *Note:  the Glimmer paper should be face down on the big shot die.*
Assembly of front cover:
Adhere the Crumb Cake centered on the Designer Series Paper Cover using snail adhesive.
Using an exacto knife – slice along the stamped line on your watercolored piece.  Insert a piece of Raspberry Ripple Ribbon & adhere to back.
Add that piece to the Raspberry Ripple piece that has been run though the polka dot folder using stampin’ dimensionals & set aside.
Using a piece of Sticky Strip run straight across from center front to center back & adhere Raspberry Ripple Ribbon from front cover to back.
Add your Centerpiece over the Raspberry Ripple Ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Add your glimmer initial using mini glue dots.
Stamp the individual sheets of the English Ivy Note paper with your initial or specialty stamp.  Insert the paper & envelopes into the pocket & tie the ribbon to close.
