Stamperia Make a Wish 6×8 Chunky File Folder Mini Tutorial ~ Now Available!

Hello Happy Crafters!!
It’s here, it’s here!! Thanks so much for your patience. The Stamperia Make a Wish 6×8 File Folder Mini Tutorial is now available in my Etsy shop.
AND it is part of the 20% off sale!  (Sale ends tonight, Monday Jan 6, at midnight ET.)
This File Folder Mini is the same foundation construction at the Patchwork 6×6 File Folder MiIni, only expanded to a bigger, chunkier 6×8 size. There are NEW elements in this project as well!
In addition to the basic foundation, with the inside front/back cover pockets, and the two pages – which are the same construction as the 6×6 Mini, just larger – this album also features two brand new Pocket Folios and two new Drop Ins, designed exclusively for this bigger size!
The Pocket Folios fit into the inside front/back cover pockets. And the Drop Ins attach to the front of each of the two pages. So much fun!
And yes, as with my other Pocket Folios, they can be created separately as individual little folios. Fun to use as quick gifts for special occasions.  The Drop Ins are also interchangeable with my other Drop In series, and can be used wherever you have a page size that will fit them. They can also be created separately as fun gifties as well.
Video Walk-Through: Check out the video walk-through of the full project here:
I hope you’ll give this fun, versatile mini a try!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Happy crafting, Donna

Graphic 45 Fashion Forward 12×12 Calendar Tutorial ~ Now Available!

Hello Happy Crafters!

The days are getting brisker here in the Blue Ridge Mountains and snow is in the forecast! A perfect time to snuggle into my studio for some serious holiday project making! I’m excited to announce my brand new 12×12 Calendar Project using Graphic 45’s bright and snazzy new Fashion Forward collection, and Authenique’s new 12×12 Blank Calendar pack!

Graphic 45 12×12 Fashion Forward Calendar

I love calendar projects as I make photo calendars for my family each year, so I was thrilled when G45 launched a brand new one this year. I love designing calendars that showcase photos on each page, along with spots for journaling/labeling & some fun interactive photo fun as well. Each page features at least one G45 Tag Folder, with a ribbon or magnet closure, which create spots for more photos and gives each month a fun “discovery” spot.

         

I used Graphic 45’s 12×12 Fashion Forward collection (one sheet of all 12 papers, and one set of cardstock stickers), G45’s Fashion Forward Patterns & Solids (the whole pad), and packs of G45’s ivory Square Tags and ATC Tags.

         

The Authentique calendar pages are blank, so you can use this tutorial to create a calendar for any year. Mine is designed for 2020, in terms of how I decorated the actual calendar pages. So adjust to when your months start and stop when adding your décor items if creating for a future year.

     

The tutorial includes all the matting sizes, so you can also substitute a different paper collection if desired. Whether it be a different calendar collection, or any collection you wish. Add solid cardstock in lieu of the Patterns & Solids paper and use stamps to create your month labels. SO much flexibility with this project. You can also adjust photo mat sizes to acommodate the photos you want to use. Use my layouts as a starting off spot, and collage as you desire. You can also swap the layout page designs for any month, if certain months photos would work better on a different month layout. Mix and match all you like!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you give this fun project a try!

Stay tuned for more holiday cheer coming your way. 🙂
