Throwback Thursday: Echo Park Welcome Baby Boy Kangaroo Pocket Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It’s Throwback Thursday, and I’m keeping my promise to share this Baby Boy Kangaroo Pocket Folio Tutorial.  I came up with this fun baby card design back in April when I shared the Welcome Baby Girl Kangaroo Pocket project with you.  Many of you asked me to do a tutorial at that time, and I said I would.  So I ‘m switching things up this week and instead of sharing a new project with an old paper collection, I’m sharing an old design with a new paper collection.  How about that?

Welcome Baby Boy !

I love everything about this folio design.  From the fun fold card base, to the itty bitty accordion folio to the array of flaps and pockets inside…every element makes me happy.

Since it’s Throwback Thursday, I did some digging in my stash to see what older embellishments I could find there.  I had completely forgotten about these adorable baby boy sock buttons and the little silver charms.

Don’t you just love the colors and images in this sweet collection from Echo Park?

And here’s a peek at the amazing itty bitty accordion fold album that lives in the Kangaroo Pocket.  How fun is that?

A Peek Inside the Card Folio Base

There is loads of room for photos and journaling inside the folio base, too.  You’ll see all the details in the YouTube tutorial below.

Between the itty bitty mini album and the folio base, you can document the Little Prince’s entire first year.  And, you can easily use this same design to document a family vacation, wedding, or other special event.  Just change up the papers to match the theme.

So if you’re ready to dig in and create this sweet project with me, just click play on the video below.  You might want to grab a cuppa and a snack for sustenance, though.  This is a big project to make with lots of steps so it takes some time to watch the whole thing.

You can find a linked supply list below the post.

So there’s a promise made and a promise kept.  I hope you have as much fun making this little folio as I did designing it!

Happy Throwback Thursday!

    My cousin just had a baby boy so your folio is certainly an adorable, timely inspiration for me. Just love your work Kathy!

    This is an adorable keepsake Kathy. The baby can have a keepsake of when it was born until 1 year of age. Wonderful. Thank you kindly for the step by step tutorial on this folio. This can also be made for any reason & any gender. Absolutely terrific. Hope Dale has come along in his recovery. Be well

    Kathy, this folio is absolutely precious! I wish I knew someone getting ready to have a baby boy! Those little booties and the charms are just darling. I love the paper with the onesies on it. The sentiments are so sweet, I really like the one with the snail. Going now to watch the video. Thank you for sharing this adorable creation! Hugs!

    This folio is absolutely adorable! I can’t believe how many places you have for photos and I love that you made this all about baby’s first year. This tutorial is amazing and I appreciate that you didn’t fast forward a lot of it even though I know it’s common to do that. With something that has as many steps that this has, it’s particularly nice to go a bit slower and include each step. This is just wonderful. I wish I knew someone who is having a baby but perhaps there’s a surprise coming that I’m unaware of! This would also be adaptable to cover a special birthday, like someone having a milestone birthday party where you have a lot of photos. I know this was a lot of work but thank you for sharing it with us.
