This warm and cozy collection is perfect for a cold January month.


Although I’ve made this basic folio design a few times, each one has it’s own unique details.

Opening this folio is a little bit like watching the curtain go up on a stage.

I was just thinking about making one of these …but was so long ago since I made my first one …great timing Kathy! I don’t have these papers …but I’ll find something in my stash! Lol! Thanks for sharing and another great tutorial! Big hugs, Suzy Q

    GORGEOUS Card! It is amazing what you make with scraps! Love how you used the buttons, charms and sewing embellishments for the card. Love your ideas. TFS – Crafty Hugs, Christal

    Perfect timing to distract us from current events for a little while – much needed and thanks! Video was delightful and informative with lovely tips. I especially like hearing you say what you are doing and what is going on in your thought processes. That paper is engaging and charming; add those lovely touches of hidden treasures, buttons, sewing and charms (in the way only you can do) produces the perfectly engaging card. Another beautiful triumph created!

    Beautiful – really illustrates how you can make a very full, elegant card out of scraps! I’m always thinking I need a whole collection for one folio. I would really like to try the stitching sometime. Such a nice touch. Thanks for continuing the Throwback Thursdays – always look forward to them.

    Kathy, what a wonderful throw back Thursday folio! As you know this paper collection is one of my favorite! I love the way you have incorporated all of the designs in this collection into your folio. They all blend together so well. The front is so gorgeous. That background die and the burlap edging is just lovely and I especially like the little lock and key embellishment that goes so well with the sentiment. Thank you for sharing AND for making the video! Hugs!
