Playing along with Stamping Ground's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. This morning, finished my snowman mini with two counted cross stitched pieces included in the book.

I'm getting ready for the new year with folios from Heartfelt Creations decorated with gorgeous papers from Graphic 45 and embellishments courtesy of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.
It all began with these Flipfold Album Inserts:
Here's what you get in each package:
I used the wider of the two options with several of the flips and decided to decorate them with these gorgeous papers from Graphic 45.
You can find the entire collection of Graphic 45 Seasons paper here: Graphic 45 Seasons
These folios can be configured in several different ways. As you'll see from the pictures below, on two of the folios I used waterfalls. On the other two folios I used side flips.
The wrought iron miniature fence is available thru
I used it as a pocket for photo mats.
The *Spring* words & flowers were backed on black cardstock

"Winter" has a waterfall for photo placement.

They are all bound in a mini-book created from scratch.
I've included a free PDF tutorial on how I bound these Heartfelt Creations/Graphic 45 folios. You can find the tutorial here:

So much fun playing with a soon-to-be envelope mini offered by Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.
Playing with the upcoming envelope album and Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe. Everything about Graphic 45's designs are so fun to work with. From bold patterns to tiny fussy cutting, the G45 collections have it all and are always inspiring.
