Photoplay Year With My Gnomies September Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial
Hello, Friends! The gnomes are headed back to school for this September Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial. September? Yes…September! How can that even be possible? Time for moms and dads to break out the back packs, new sneakers, pencils and pads. Summer really, truly is winding down once the kids start back to school!
These gnomes seem to be ready for some reading, writing and arithmetic lessons. I had loads of fun putting this 6×6 shaker folio together for you today.
A ribbon closure of blue gingham seemed to be a prudent plan for this slightly chunky folio. I’ll share all the details and how-tos in the video tutorial below.
A Peek Inside
How do you feel about these bright, primary colors? It’s just like opening that new box of Crayolas on the first day of school!
If you’ve been following along with this year-long series, then you know how quick and easy it is to make this monthly folio. But, if you’re new, or you need to get caught up on past months, you can find them all HERE.
There’s lots of room for photos, special dates and journaling in all the little pockets and tuck spots.
Remember the first day of school? I walked with my best friend Robin up the long, long hill to our neighborhood 2 room schoolhouse. Filled with anticipation and ready to conquer the world, I was a bit disappointed when the first day centered around getting our desks properly adjusted to the length of our legs and coloring a big red apple. Already reading, I went home and told my mother that I would not be going back the next day as I already knew how to color.
But I did…because you just didn’t argue with Mom.

If you’d like to follow along as I make this month’s folio, please enjoy this video tutorial. I was racing a thunderstorm, so it moves along fast! We almost always lose power in a thunderstorm, and I did not want to end up in the dark.
What’s your favorite memory from your very first day of school? I’d love to hear about it in the comment section below.
