  1. Wow, what a fantastic project! I'm amazed by how many pockets, fold outs, tags and pages this little folio contains, it doesn't look that full from the front. The waterfall feature is awesome Gail, and I love the way you've embellished all the different sections. This would make a fantastic holiday keepsake, but it would also be an amazing gift. Love it!

    1. This FOX is my favorite of all and I love doing him in a print and cut in all sizes - he he fabulous! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. WOW! Gail, you say it's easy? I'll go looky at the video, however yours looks complicated, delicious, wonderful and amazing, fabulous work and it must have taken great patience. Love it.

    1. Yes, the Folio took me a day and half to finish up but the base section was easy to assembly per her instructions - took less than 10 minutes - then I had to search for the gusset pockets tutorials - after that it was easy to get all of those cut - paper added and the most intense is adding the EXTRAS - the waterfall, tags, pages, etc. Thanks for stopping by

  3. I forgot to say Thank you so much for joining us in our challenge at QKR Stampede Good Luck and looking forward to seeing you again in our next challenge.
