Graphic 45 Flower Market Folio Tutorial Part 2: Finishing the February Folio
Hello, Friends! Just as I promised, here’s the Graphic 45 Flower Market Folio Tutorial Part 2. We introduced this new “through the year” calendar folio series on Tuesday. If you missed that post, you can get caught up HERE.
The first part of this tutorial will show you how to create the folio base. We’ll be using this same basic design for each month in 2023, so it’s good to watch that first segment before you dig into today’s post.
Pansies are one of my favorite flowers. Their cheery faces never fail to make me smile. And, they are such hardy little blooms! Here in North Carolina they can bloom from October all the way into early May. So I’m very happy that Graphic 45 made them the featured blossom in their gorgeous Flower Market paper collection.
February’s “Guest Stars”
In addition to the G45 February papers, I chose 2 other paper collections to serve as our “guest stars”. Heartfelt Creations Burst of Spring and Prima Darcelle work beautifully with these gorgeous botanicals.
I’m really enjoying digging into my stash to find patterns from other collections that flow well with the Flower Market collection.
The darker purple tones in Darcelle add a much needed contrast to the G45 papers. Plus, it’s always fun to use up papers from my stash.
If you don’t have Burst of Spring or Darcelle in your Closet of Inspiration and Delight, then I’m sure you can find a suitable substitute.

This is so gorgeous and love the purple of the Violet! Gorgeous papers again from Graphic 45!! I never get enough!! Always making something with those fabulous iconic images!! The violet maybe my favorite!!
I loved the folio. Also wanted to let you know I went back to 2013 and read the story of your mom, what a lady. I thought about the Proverbs 31 mother as I read your story.
I love this folio design. I don’t have this graphic 45 collection but I am going to rummage thru my stash and use something I have already. I am going to spend today making this and hope it turns out as wonderful as yours.
What a way to start the year! Love the use of mix and match papers and the wide range of pockets to tuck in paper treasures. The stitching is a really lovely finishing touch. Your presentations are so easy to view. Thanks Kathy for sharing your wonderful creativity!
Simply gorgeous Kathy!! Beautiful paper turned into “Works of Art” – thank you for sharing!!
Kathy this pansy folio is beyond gorgeous! I too, love pansies with their vibrant colors and sweet faces. This 45 collection pares so well with the Heartfelt Creations and Carcell papers! The inside of this folio is just wonderful and your design is fabulous! Can’t wait for more creations throughout the year. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
These folios are beautiful! Please continue to share these monthly creations on your videos. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
