May Gnome of the Month Shaker Card Folio Tutorial Tuesday Video

Hello, Friends!  Wow, can you believe it’s time for our May Gnome of the Month Shaker Card Tutorial?  Wasn’t it just St. Patrick’s Day 5 minutes ago?  Now Easter is behind us and we are getting into summertime territory!  Whoa!

I hope you all had a blessed and happy Easter Weekend.  Ours was jam packed with friends, food, and family…the best kind of celebration!  We had 15 family members here on Sunday, and the weather was glorious, so we were able to eat lunch on the deck and hang together on the screen porch until almost dark.  In fact, I had to whip up a quick batch of buttermilk biscuits to go with leftover ham and pimiento cheese for supper.  No one complained!

If you’re keeping up with this series, this is folio number 5.  But if you’re new to the blog, you can find the previous tutorials HERE.

Once again, we follow the basic format for making the folio base.  The shaker element is a Reneabouquets Deco Heart Circle Frame filled with Mermaid Sparklets from Buttons Galore and More.  (Linked below)

Dress the frame up with Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Powder and some colorful buttons from your stash.

A Peek Inside

You’ll find all the customary pockets, flaps and tuck-ins waiting for you inside.

It’s a very colorful folio this month!

If you’d like to follow along as I create the May Gnome of the Month folio, please enjoy this YouTube video tutorial.

OK, friends…that’s all for me today.  I need to go switch loads of laundry and put the tablecloths away until the next fun gathering.  I hope you all have a joyful and creative day!

Thanks for stopping by!

    April showers bring May flowers and that is how I’m looking at the weather we have been having and trying to stay positive about the rain. Love the card Kathy, the Gnome is so cute! Great colours to brighten up this dull day. 🙂
