Raining Cats and Dogs Photo Folio
By Clare Charvill


“It's great to see this collection back as a Deluxe Collector’s Edition. I love how the colours work so well together and of course who couldn't fall in love with all the images of the cats and dogs. I used my favourite mix of papers from the DCE pack to create this 10 1/4" x 8 1/4" photo folio. Inside there's two large pockets, two fold-out pages, and four fold-out sections in the centre for lots of pictures.  There's an On-Line Workshop available for the Folio if you'd like to make it too.” ~Clare

Cat Album
By Sandy Trefger


Tip:  If you don’t want all the images on the paper for your project (for example for this cat album I did not need any dog images), fussy cut out the images that you do want or layer over the parts of the image you don’t need (such as the dogs & puppies) with fussy cut flowers.  It’s also good to use flowers, lace and ribbon to hide images that don’t apply to you.

It’s hard to choose a favorite collection from G45, but Faerie Dust would probably be it. I love to make folio projects from all the collections I have.
