Paper Trail Blog Hop with Sarita

Happy New Year and welcome to the Paper Trail Blog Hop! This month we are hopping along with Sarita. You may have arrived here from Betsy's blog, but if not, don't worry our hop is circular. Toady, I have one layout made up of four pages to share. One layout made up of four pages? How? I used a True Fit Folio - a 12X12 folder - to create an interactive page. 

Here is the main part of my layout - what you would see when you turned the page in the album.


And here are the other two pages hidden behind the right hand page above. 


I love the number of photos I can include in one layout with a True Fit Folio. The colors of Sarita reminded me of Advent - we use purple, blue and pink in our church. With the True Fit Folio and Sarita papers, I was able to capture many moments from our Advent season.

And here are some details. The title using the retired Cocktail alphabet.

I stamped in colors that coordinated with the paper pack - Gypsy, Goldrush, Outdoor Denim, Lagoon and Cotton Candy. In addition to the Lagoon washi tape, I used the hostess rewards stamp set Washi Wonder to embellish this layout.


The only embellishments I used on this layout were stamps. I feld that there was enough going on with the patterns of the paper, number of photos and variety of washi tapes.








Since my layout focused on the Advent season, I used some holiday stamps as accents.










Thank you so much for stopping by! If you would like to read more about creating with True Fit Folios, stop back on Friday. I'll be sharing some of my thought process when creating this four page layout. Until then, I hope you'll continue on to Lynn's blog; I'm sure you'll love what she has created.
