Kaleidoscope Papers, New Journals (+ Tags & Pockets on Sale!)

Bright and Fun Folio by Guest Designer Gina Hubbard

What a treat today! We have artwork by Gina Hubbard, who is usually behind the scenes working magic with the laser cutters.

Gina started with the new 9×11 Inch Folio (which is a set of 3 laser-cut (and scored) pieces of medium-weight chipboard; there’s an outer cover that wraps around so it has a flap on the front when closed). See the photo at left for the raw chipboard version, and a photo below at left after decorating and adding a framed card (from the Kaleidoscope 12×12 Collection Pack).

Note: there’s also a half size version of the folio new today, too.

Gina also used the new Kaleidoscope Papers (all of the papers, from 2 pads to Cardstock Tags & Pockets Die-Cuts). So colorful! Love the peacock feather and zebra prints.

You can see a wide photo below showing just a portion of the folio when opened out: the album measures nearly 3 ft square and features space for 60+ photos when fully open! (Gina added extra pages for photos.) All of the pockets & frames for photos inspired today’s sale on tags and pockets (more info below).

Beside the few photos shown here, visit Gina’s blog post for lots more info & photos!
