Graphic 45 July Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Summer is here, and it’s time to share this Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial with you.  This is the next installment of our 2022 Time to Flourish Desk Folio Series on YouTube.  The rich colors of summer berries and azure blue skies come together in this lovely vintage design.

Have you noticed how many more gardens have cropped up this year?  Nearly every house in our neighborhood has a little plot or pot growing delicious summer produce.  So I decided to really emphasize the growing season in this month’s folio.  Whether you are growing posies or produce, July is the peak season for gardeners!

I wish I looked as cool and classy as this Reneabouquets Gardening Lady, don’t you?

A Peek Inside

A handy interior pocket does double duty as the stopper for this 6×6 easel card design.  This gives us lots of room for sweet tuck ins and photos.

The hidden side pocket holds this 5 1/2″ square folio.

Despite its petite size, it holds all kinds of gardening goodness on the inside!

The side pocket feature has room for even more photos of your summer garden!

    What a spectacular desk folio, Kathy! I could just look at this all day, there are so many beautiful images to enjoy. I love that beautiful flower girl and those darling charms. This collection has always been one of my favorites and I still have a lot of these papers. You have given me such great ideas! Thank you for sharing!

    I love these folios Kathy! You never cease to amaze me with all your creativity. This I can do, but just may not be as embellished as yours. I just don’t have bunches of things to add, but, you know, I’ll still give it a go as the basic design is the main part of it. I can then find things to add to the top & insides of the various places. Glad that you do go over some of the measurements for us as well. Be well, be safe & TYFS

    You are such a master paper crafter and design artist that never ceases to amaze and delight! You take my breath away with your ability to accessorize and mix-and-match patterned papers. I call this another impressive make, my friend.

    Your folios never cease to amaze me Kathy. Jam packed with goodness. Everything is exploding around here, the garden is filling up and it’s lovely to see and the fragrant flowers and shrubs, lovely. We do have a lot more Pill Bugs and other evil pests in the garden this year though, it is a struggle to keep up but we do our best with our tin can traps that seem to have many bugs in them over night, which is a good thing! Have a glorious Thursday!!
