Simple Stories Plaid Dad Folio

Simple Stories Plaid Dad Folio

Hello everyone! I have a quick little project to share with you today. I received a sample of the Simple Stories Plaid Dad collection. The sample was only three sheets of the 12×12.
I saw a really cute tutorial on the Everything Authentique Facebook page and I thought it would be the perfect project. In the tutorial they used a graduation themed papers but I wanted to create a Fathers Day version. Its a small little folio created from cardstock.

I double matted the project using black cardstock for the base and then added a layer of gray cardstock. It has a magnet closure on the front. I created a pocket with one of the cut parts and add a couple of tags with some cute brads that resemble screws.

When opened up all of the way there are pockets on the left side and a waterfall in the center.

The waterfall has a magnet attached to the back so it can be removed. I used the cute plaid shirt paper as a fun surprise once the waterfall is removed.

I didn’t have a lot of paper left so I did some random blocking of papers to add to the back of the folio.

This was a really cute project and came together really quick! Sending this to my Father in Law for Fathers Day! I love the fun saying, “Sawdust is Man Glitter”.
Have a great week and checkout the fun tutorial over on the Everything Authentique Facebook page.

Miss Kate Cuttables #1 Dad Card

Miss Kate Cuttables #1 Dad Card

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a card that I created for the Miss Kate blog. Since Father’s Day is this month I thought I would create a Father’s Day card. Miss Kate has so many great files that it was really hard to choose. I decided on a shaped card using the #1 Dad file.


This file is actually a title file but I loved the design of it so I turned it into a shaped card using my Cricut Explore Air.

This file worked great for a shaped card since it has a nice shadow layer that can be used as the base of the card. I added some dimension to the card by using some foam tape to the back of the tie.

I kept the sentiment pretty simple on the inside by using the Happy Father’s Day stamp from CardzTv Happy Days stamp set.

That’s my Father’s Day card. I like how it turned out. It was really simple to create. Have a great week!
