Graphic 45 October Flower Market Folio Tutorial with Prima Hello, Pink Autumn

Hello Friends!  It’s time to share our Graphic 45 October Flower Market Tutorial for this week’s Make & Take Tuesday crafty adventure.  If you are a fan of Cosmos (and I am) and purple (yup…that, too) then I think you are going to love the way this month’s folio turned out.  It’s one of our prettiest folios yet!

Our “guest star” this month is a selection of Prima Hello, Pink Autumn papers and a few bits from Prima Darcelle.  I’m so happy with the way these colors and patterns blend togeher.  And because it is October, I had to add in a few pumpkins.

The format for the base design is the same as in previous months.  If you’ve missed those earlier tutorials, you can get caught up HERE.

Flips and Flaps

I’ve added a couple of new twists to the flips and flaps this month.  It’ s good to change things up a little bit every now and then.

A flip up flap is more than just a fun interactive feature; it gives us room to add a hidden journaling area.  You’ll also find that I made good use of Annette Green’s Everythings Blooming Doilies and Postage Stamp Frames throughout the folio design.

Cosmos were one of my mom’s favorite flowers, so making this folio brought back lots of good memories for me.

We only have 2 more of these folios to make!  Wow, this year has gone by fast!

Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends!

    You have done it again, great improvisation, fitting together varied designs and adding really cool wee pockets with fussy cuts. This series of pocket folios are a gift that keeps giving!

    I have sent off a few emails, they say sent and none have returned, hopefully you will see them too, she writes with wishful thinking…… I wonder if we should try a different email address or should I use my husbands (same surname) just in case it arrives at your inbox.

    Cosmos is one of my favourite flowers and the arrangement of these are beautiful. I especially love the pleat in the inner folders. I know you have probably mentioned your glue of choice in former tutorials but can not find it. Any advice and also your nozzle looks like it can go into any nook or cranny. The nozzle on my replacement bottles clog too quickly. I finally finished your mini “Welcome Home” album and am in LOVE. A special gift adapted for my daughter I know she will love it.

    Octobers folio is so full of goodies! I have picked up some ideas from the video that I wouldn’t have thought of. Thank you so much for sharing.
