Graphic 45 June Time to Flourish Folio Tutorial for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  Believe it or not, it’s almost time to turn the calendar, so we need to share our Graphic 45 June Time to Flourish Folio Tutorial for this week’s Throwback Thursday post.  Summer comes into its own during the month of June. Songbirds are teaching their young to fly, butterflies flit about in the garden and the air is heady with the scent of roses.  What a beautiful month!  I think you’re going to really enjoy making this month’s folio!

We are following our basic folio design, and dressing things up with lovely elements from the Reneabouquets shop.  These Dusty Blue Roses are the perfect accent for the blues and pinks in this month’s papers.  A small April in Paris Doily creates a lovely spot to tuck in a wee bird nest. I’ll show you how to make it in the video tutorial!  And do you spy that gorgeous blue butterfly?  Yummy!

Hidden Pocket Folio

Of course, we have a hidden pocket beneath the card base.  This holds a lovely 5 1/2″ mini folio.

It’s kind of amazing how much you can fit into this small space.

I did change things up just a tad this month so that we don’t get bored with the design. You’ll see all the details in the video below.

A Peek Inside

The interior pocket doubles as a brake for the easel mechanism.

This gives us room to tuck in more small  photo folios, which is always a good idea.

Throwback Thursday: Graphic 45 Time to Flourish May Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Even though it’s hard to believe, it is time to share our Graphic 45 Time to Flourish May Folio Tutorial.  May???  Seriously?  Where is this year going?  If you are a regular follower on this blog, then you know we are enjoying a monthly series featuring this gorgeous paper collection.  New to the blog?  You can catch up on the previous months’ tutorials HERE.

May’s papers are so elegant with shades of purple, dragonflies, luscious botanical prints and floral images.  I decided to pull out the green hues in the color palette rather than the pink ones.  The end result is a regal looking folio that is perfect for Mother’s Day, May birthdays or any special occasion!

Layers of Love

I am so very fond of all the dragonflies that are depicted in the May papers.  they haven’t appeared in my back yard yet this year, but my granddaughters have seen them!  Because they are one of my favorite winged creatures, I echoed the dragonflies in the designer paper with a Reneabouquets glitter glass dragonfly and a silver dragonfly charm that I found in my stash.  Perched on a heat embossed April in Paris Beautiful Board Doily, it really sets the tone for this folio.

Here’s a view from above with the folio peeking out from the hidden pocket.

You’ll find a pocket inside the folio, too.  This one does double duty: it serves as a stopper or brake for the easel mechanism as well as a spot to tuck in photo mats and journal cards.

Hidden Pocket Mini Folio

We will create a 5 1/2″ square folio to tuck into the hidden pocket located beneath the card base.

There’s a storage pocket inside as well as a lovely flap page.

I’ve added photo mats and journal cards inside the folio.  You’ll see how all of this comes together in the video tutorial below.
