Mix & Match Folio Tutorial

Hello G45ers!

Reintroducing Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Journal and 3D Pop-Up Extraordinare, Phoebe Tonosaki. Phoebe has crafted this interactive Folio Album with two G45 paper collections, showcasing how easy it is to mix and match our collections. This technique is especially great for using up all of those paper scraps. Watch the video tutorial to see how Phoebe has combined the Couture – Collector’s Edition and P.S. I Love You papers to create this delightful memory book. Be sure to leave a warm welcome in the comments below.

Phoebe Tonosaki – Japan

2023-2024 Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador


“My name is Phoebe Tonosaki, I was born in Hong Kong, and moved to Japan since I get married to a Japanese on 2004. I live in a rural town 2 hours away from Tokyo. I was born and raised in the middle of a big city, so life in this quiet and eventless town has been dull and boring. Then one day I found mixed media through a Facebook friend, and since then I have been in the crafting “rabbit hole”! 


At the beginning, I started with off-the-page altered art projects because they looked really cool. I enjoyed working with various medium on not just 3D surfaces, but also flat surfaces like canvas and layout. After a while, I met different artists and mentors in my journey, and I have come to love doing paper albums, junk journals, and pop-up techniques. 

I very much appreciate and treasure the past year being Graphic 45 brand ambassador. It was a valuable experience working with such a seasoned and renowned brand. It was indeed challenging to provide inspiration, education, information and perspective to the Graphic 45 audience, I am hoping I will be doing better, and even more aggressive in this coming year in the sense of providing lovely, easy and fun projects.


I am so excited to start my second year with Graphic 45 and you all!

Folio Album Tutorial

By Phoebe Tonosaki


Hello everyone, this is Phoebe Tonosaki. I am thrilled to be chosen as G45 ambassador again for another year. I want to take this chance to thank you for those who liked, commented, shared and gave a thumbs up to my projects last year. I hope you will continue to support me this year!


For my first project as ambassador 2023 – 2024, I am going to show you a project that reflects myself as a paper crafter, and the style that I like. 

I love albums and folios. Especially folio that is easy to make and easy to store, which also provides a lot of flexibility. This was a project I created to apply for the auction for this ambassador call. I was asked a few times for the tutorial and here you go!

I intentionally chose two different collections for this project. Though different, they are very much alike and have similar color tones that work well with each other.
