Graphic 45 Flower Market July Folio Tutorial with Ciao Bella Microcosmos

Hello, Friends!  Can you even believe that it’s time for our Graphic 45 Flower Market July Folio Tutorial?  This year is moving so fast that it’s hard to keep up!  Flower gardens begin to burst with blooms once July moves in, and the Flower Market July papers reflect the riot of colors that accompany those beautiful blossoms.

While I’ve enjoyed making these folios this year, this month is a favorite for me.  Why?  Well, because while digging through the newly organized stash I came across Ciao Bella’s magnificent Microcosmos collection.  Talk about a match made in Heaven!  Wait until you see how beautifully this collection flows with the Flower Market colors and patterns!

If you are new to this year-long series, you can find tutorials for the previous 6 folios HERE.

A Peek Inside a Hidden World of Beauty

Here’s a peek inside this month’s folio.  It’s like entering a hidden world of beautiful flowers, sweet ladybugs, buzzing bees, adorable snails, and fabulous foliage.

See what I mean?

And while the folio base design remains the same as in previous months, I did change up the inner workings to provide more flaps and interactive elements.  All these things combine to make it my favorite Flower Market Folio Tutorial so far.

Hello, Friends!  Did you think that I had forgotten about this Graphic 45 May Flower Market Folio Tutorial?  No….I’m just playing catch up after a delightful Easter weekend with my family.  I hope y’all enjoyed as much fun, fellowship and food as we did!  I never get tired of time with the family!

Lilies are one of my favorite flowers, so I was tickled to see that G45 featured them for the May pages.  If you’re new to the blog, I started sharing a monthly folio tutorial for each of the months in Graphic 45’s through the year collection.  You can find the previous tutorials HERE.

This time, I’ve paired up these gorgeous floral papers with the Let it Bee collection, which is also from Graphic 45.  We use quite a few of the Graphic 45 dies to create accent pieces for the folio, too.

If you don’t have these papers or dies in your stash, don’t worry!  You can probably find papers that will work equally well.  That’s the fun part about this series; you get to mix and match beautiful papers and dies and ephemera from your stash.

There is no shortage of flaps and flips and pockets and mini folios in this design.  The folios are not just fun to create, but they make wonderful gifts.  Imagine receiving the May folio if  you happen to have a May birthday!

I love the way these two paper collections complement one another.  I would not have thought of pairing up red and yellow, but the color palette really speaks to the colors of the lilies, so it works!
