Since Tim Holtz released his new Idea-ology range this year I have been dying to make something with the Vignette Card File. After seeing Jan Hobbin's creation for Tim's reveal video where she created a file box to hold special dates throughout the year, I decided to create something similar.
I have been collecting addresses of blog friends for the past 10 years, keeping them in a small notebook, this has become a bit dog eared over the years and so I decided to make a card address file....
I started by covering the box with Backdrops Volume 3 papers before adding design tape to the edges.
To finish off the box I applied Tim's Translucent Crackle Paint randomly around the box and when dry I spritzed over it with Distress Oxide Spray in Salvaged Patina and gently wiping some off here and there to give a distressed look.
The hardware was painted with Distress Foundry Wax in 'Mined' before attaching to the box. I love how easy it is to use Foundry Wax and the finish is beautiful.
I took nine sets of the new Idea-ology File Cards and coloured them with Distress Oxide Distress Sprays and added a little stamping here and there for added texture.
Each pocket card will hold three letters of the alphabet. I used Idea-ology Stencil cards to label the folders. Each pocket contains one folded card and one tabbed card, so plenty of room for names and addresses.
I used a whole mix of Idea-ology Ephemera to collage on top of each pocket.
To finish off I added the word 'friends' from Idea-ology Big Chat collection of words.
All I need to do now is transfer the names and addresses!
Thanks so much for your visit. I apologise for not being around much these days, either here or on social media, but I have a few health issues I am working through and Facebook is playing silly beggars with my feed at the moment.....
Take care and keep safe and well.
