Graphic 45 July Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Summer is here, and it’s time to share this Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial with you.  This is the next installment of our 2022 Time to Flourish Desk Folio Series on YouTube.  The rich colors of summer berries and azure blue skies come together in this lovely vintage design.

Have you noticed how many more gardens have cropped up this year?  Nearly every house in our neighborhood has a little plot or pot growing delicious summer produce.  So I decided to really emphasize the growing season in this month’s folio.  Whether you are growing posies or produce, July is the peak season for gardeners!

I wish I looked as cool and classy as this Reneabouquets Gardening Lady, don’t you?

A Peek Inside

A handy interior pocket does double duty as the stopper for this 6×6 easel card design.  This gives us lots of room for sweet tuck ins and photos.

The hidden side pocket holds this 5 1/2″ square folio.

Despite its petite size, it holds all kinds of gardening goodness on the inside!

The side pocket feature has room for even more photos of your summer garden!

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.

Reneabouquets Medium Blue Lilac Printed Beautiful Board Shaker Frame by Kathy Clement PHoto 01

The heart of this pretty project is this shaker frame made with Reneabouquets Blue Lilac Printed Beautiful Board Frame.  Here’s how to make it:

  • First, trace around the frame onto acetate sheets (clear cardstock.
  • Now cut along the inside line of the tracing and adhere to the back side of the frame.
  • Next, trace around the frame onto a scrap of yellow cardstock.  Trim out and set aside.
  • Then cut out the image from the April image from the 8×8 pad.  Adhere this in the center of the heart.
  • Now add your shaker elements in the center of the image.  I used Buttons Galore Easter Chic shaker mix. (Linked below this post.)
  • Next, add 3 rows of 1/8″ foam strips to the back side of the heart frame.  Make sure you don’t leave gaps!
  • Finally, press the frame in place over the prepared image.

G45 March Time to Flourish Folio Tutorial

Throwback Thursday: G45 March Time to Flourish Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It’s time to share our G45 March Time to Flourish Folio Tutorial in this week’s Throwback Thursday.  I’ve heard from so many of you that you are really enjoying this monthly series.  Since we are in the 2nd week of February, I thought I’d get the March folio done so we have plenty of time to get them done.

The format for this folio is pretty much just like the February and January versions.  Springtime and St. Patrick’s Day are two great events that take place in March, and I love the way these are represented in the papers.  I have vivid childhood memories of picking wild violet bouquets as the snow melted away in the spring. The color palette in this month’s folio brings those lovely memories back to me.

Once again, we  have a hidden pocket built beneath the easel card base.

Inside this folio you’ll find a pocket and flap page, just as we did in February.

You can learn how to create all the elements I’ve shared here in the video tutorial below.  I hope you enjoy!
