Compendium of Curiosities #23

CC3C #23 is all about the Tim Holtz Collection Folio and you can see what Linda Ledbetter and the Curiosity Crew created HERE.  There is certainly some wonderful inspiration over there!

My folio took nearly a week to make, off and on and it is not quite finished yet, but time is marching on I want to enter it into the challenge.  I wanted to make something useful so I made the folio to be used for storing travel documents and ephemera picked up along the way.  There are lots of photos so I am keeping the words to a minimum, all of the products I used to create the folio are Tim Holtz ones and include, three different paper pads, inks, paints, Remnant Rubs, Flash Cards, dies, chit chat stickers, Ephemera, stamps and lots of Idea-ology.
The whole of the folio is covered in papers from Tim's paper packs.
The first layer with lots of storage space on the left hand side for tickets or travel documents.
The next layer with three envelope pockets for storing small items.
Another top opening envelope with a 'rusted' frame (Gathered Twigs and Abandoned Coral Distress Paint)
This layer has pocket pages to store small tickets.
A final pocket for storing passports and other valuables.  This large expandable envelope pocket is removable. The butterfly is coloured with Spiced Marmalade and Picket Fence DP and Clear Rock Candy Distress Paint.
The back of the folio, covered in a collage of tickets.

At CC3C, since it is an odd number week, the challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium who have a $50 voucher to spend in their on-line shop, for one randomly chosen individual.  One very lucky individual, chosen by the Curiosity Crew will win a fabulous prize from Tim and Mario!

Inspiration Emporium are also sponsoring a challenge at Inspiration Journal (Spring Blooms) where one lucky randomly chosen winner will receive 50 Emporium Dollars to spend in their on-line store.  In addition, if you use my code Redanne, you will receive 10% off your whole order.

Apologies for the long post but thanks so much for looking and I hope to see you again soon.

Hugs, Anne xx
