     I created this 'Pocket Card Folio' with papers from the Floral Shoppe Collection by Graphic 45.  The entire collection is available at Scrap N Create.  The thing I like most about this kit is the beautiful ephemera cards and it has a huge sheet of stickers.
     Folio measures 4 1/4" x  8 1/4" and has a 1/4" spine.  All the edges are burnished with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The ephemera card on the front is mounted on pink cardstock.

     This is the inside showing the photo mats and pocket with another photo mat.

     Here's the card opened up.  Pam Higgins  from Design Wishes has a great tutorial on how to make this card.  You can find that on her YouTube channel HERE.

              The ephemera card on the back cover is also mounted on pink cardstock.

I first saw the video on how to make these cupcakes about four years ago.  Ms. Liberty had them as part of her 'Submission Project' for Graphic 45.  You can see the video HERE.  I fell in love with the EK petal punch and have used it in countless projects.

     I burnished all the edges of the flowers with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  I used a 3 3/4" circle cardboard coaster as plate for the cupcake.  Glued it to a single glass candle holder to serve as base.  The cupcake base is made with a 9 oz. size paper cup and is 2" tall.
     Top half of cupcake is a 3" round Styrofoam ball cut in half.

     This is a new 'Accordion File Folder'.  I used the same instructions from Splitcoast Stampers and template measurements as before.  However, this time I used a digital kit from Snickerdoodle Designs for all my papers and embellishments.  It's a darling kit called 'Forever Friends' and is available at Snickerdoodle Designs.

Here's the basic layout with the backgrounds.

                   These are the removable photo cards.  All the word art is from the kit.  All the edges are burnished with 'Gathered Twigs' Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

Here's the other side of photo cards with a place for journaling .

     Here's all the album pages with their embellishments attached.  I added extra journaling squares on the bottom and extra small photo mats in the pockets.  The album measures 4 1/2" X 7 1/2".  Because of the extra mats I added a 1/2" spine.

     Here's a close up of the word art on the front.  I added Wink of Stella to the words for a little extra sparkle.  The silk flowers are by Prima and Petaloo.
