Hello, G45ers!

  Let's kick off the weekend with a Fun, Fabulous Fruit & Flora File Folder Mini!  Our Fruit & Flora and Ocean Blue paper collections have started trickling into local G45 Retailers around the world and we are thrilled to see what is being created with these new collections.  To give you a little taste of just how delicious this collection is Donna Kauffman shares an unboxing video, followed by a mini album using our Fruit & Flora papers.  Plus, if you are looking for a tutorial on how to create your own file folder mini we have uploaded her tutorial at the end as well.  We wish you a warm and wonderful weekend, be sure to leave your love and comments below.  


Fruit & Flora: File Folder Mini 

By Donna Kauffman 


  “I love all things flora! Add in luscious fruit and you’ve got my full attention! This fun 6.5” x 6.5” File Folder Mini was put on display with my first Graphic 45 free video tutorial (and that tutorial is still available!) I thought this was a perfect way to update that mini and Graphic 45’s new Fruit & Flora  collection did not disappoint! Eye candy at every turn of the page. This mini features three pages with interactive pull out folders, and more interactive goodies inside the front and back cover. The entire project is made from manila file folders and the 12x12 Fruit & Flora collection. Fun, easy, and a beautiful outcome!” ~Donna

I made my first mini file folder album using G45 By the Sea last summer using Donna's tutorial. I love the idea of using file folders that are amazingly sturdy and perfect for a mini album project coupled with G45's beautiful papers! I have subsequently purchased a few of Donna's tutorials & kits. Donna will be missed, but she has left us with her tremendous talent. I will be making more mini file folder albums for sure! Rest in Peace Donna Kauffman and thank you for sharing your talent and passion with us.
