#SimplyG45 Autumn Folio

By Kathy Clement

"Hello, G45’ers!  Have you avoided making mini albums or folios because they look too complicated, take too long and are too expensive to make?  Well, today’s post is just for you.  “This Autumn Time Folio in a Flash uses just 4 sheets of Graphic 45 designer paper, a few sheets of kraft cardstock, a handful of Black Staples square tags and a few other basic crafting tools that you probably already have in your stash.” ~Kathy

How I love A Place in Time. The graphics are so vibrant! I too use the packaging for creations. Well done!

Carrie Kahle:

I like the fact that I can look at each tag & see a glimpse of that month's papers. They would also be cute to use as gifts tags with a special note added to the back instead of a photo. But then again, I might just want to hoard them for myself because they're so adorable.

Janet Ladd:

Love these projects! Looking forward to trying them. Graphic 45 papers always inspire me!!!
