Join us this month as we create an elaborately folded and pocketed layout using our Grace collection. You’ll construct a pocket to hold a separate page for your photos and journaling, allowing you to fit in twice the memories! You’ll also create double-sided folds on both pages, adorned with diecuts and brads. A ribbon-tied card completes the all-occasion trio.

Supplies:
3 Sheets AG1057 Grace Small Purple Flowers
2 Sheets AG1059 Grace Green Tonal Flower
2 Sheets AG1061 Grace Blue Flower
2 Sheets AG1062 Grace Large Plum Flowers
3 Sheets AG1065 Grace Plum Flowers

Pocket Full of Posies
Step 1
Cut a 10" square AG1057. Center and adhere to a 10 1/2" square AG1065. (Save all scraps for the second page and card.) Center and adhere to background sheet AG1061.
Step 2
Adhere AG1059 and AG1062 together back to back.
With AG1059 side up, mark
the center (6") on each side. Lay a ruler diagonally from one mark to the next on the adjacent side and fold the paper in to the center along the side of the ruler.
Measure 2" from this fold toward the center and fold back. [Or 3" from the point on each side.]
Use a paper piercer or push pin to make a hole about 1/2" from the outer edge
through all layers and insert the brad. Repeat for remaining three corners.
Step 3
Center points of the frame on each side of the page and adhere in place. For photo mat, cut a 4 1/2" square AG1065 and a 4" square ivory cardstock from the 12"x 12" sheet. Adhere together and in frame.

Pocket Full of Posies
Step 1
Cut a 10 1/2" square AG1057 and an 11" square AG1065. Center and adhere together and to background sheet AG1061.
Step 2
Adhere AG1059 and AG1062 together back to back. We will fold only one corner in. With the AG1059 side up, measure 3 1/2" from one corner on adjacent sides.
Lay your ruler diagonally from mark to mark and fold the corner in along the ruler. Measure 2 " from this fold straight back, (or 3" along the side seam) and fold back.
Pierce hole for brad 1/2" from edge through all layers and insert brad.
Step 3
To fold the sides of the pocket in, with the folded corner at the top and the AG1059 side up, measure 5 1/2" from the outer points down toward the bottom point. Lay your ruler along the side of the top fold to one mark and fold in along the ruler.
Repeat for the other side. Fold the bottom point up by laying the ruler across the bottom of the side folds and fold against the ruler toward the center.
To make the pocket expandable, fold sides to make a V by measuring in 1/2" from the side folds and fold back.
Measure 1/2" from this fold and fold forward. Repeat steps for the other side. Adhere pocket to the background 1 1/2" from the bottom of the page. [Adhere only on the three top triangles along their two sides, or you will ad her your expandable pocket shut.]
Step 4
For the pocket insert, cut an 8"x 9" piece from the 12"x12" sheet ivory cardstock. Cut a 7 3/4"x 7 1/2" piece AG1065. Adhere centered along the lower three sides of the insert. Cut one edge of a 7 3/4" long strip AG1065 (from first page) with decorative scissors. Cut a 7 3/4" long strip AG1057 (from first page). Adhere together with 1/4" of the AG1057 showing below the decorative edge. Adhere centered on three sides to top edge of insert. Punch out diecut flower. Adhere to top of insert as a pullout tab. Insert in pocket.
