Graphic 45 Flower Market April Folio Tutorial

Graphic 45 Flower Market April Folio Tutorial Guest Starring Kaisercraft Flower Shoppe

Hello, Friends!  Is it really time for our Graphic 45 Flower Market April Folio?  Well, the calendar says it is, so here we come with the next folio in this year-long Make & Take Tuesday series.  This April Folio features daisies, one of the most cheerful flowers of the field.  The cheerful/joyful theme of this month’s folio is perfect for springtime.

We will follow the same basic construction format that we’ve used in the JanuaryMarch folios. But  you know me…I don’t like to do the same thing over and over again, so there are a few subtle changes in this month’s folio.  I’m always looking for ways to improve the basic design.

A Peek Inside

This month’s “guest star” is a selection of papers and ephemera from Kaisercraft Flower Shoppe collection.  What a lovely surprise to see how well these two collections work together!  If you don’t have Flower Shoppe in your stash, just substitute another collection!  I do talk a bit in the video tutorial about my process for picking papers from other collections to go with the G45 papers.

See how well everything flows together?  I’ll share a full walk through in the video tutorial.

Instead of breaking the tutorial into two parts, I decided to publish it as one BIG video.  So grab a cuppa and a snack, grab a notebook and a pencil and let’s get this week’s Make & Take Tuesday rolling!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This folio is certainly one that keeps giving. Every page has something new to showcase, and I like others here Kathy, really do enjoy your use of mix and match papers from the stash. Your approach to the oops moments, the repairs or alteration always bring a smile as I do the same, especially with magnets! And as usual I need to watch the video again to take it all in. Wonderful creativity and thankyou for sharing.
