I have just completed a Mini Album using Graphic 45's Love Notes collection. The paper in this collection is swoon worthy for sure!! I will apologize up front for this long post with so many pictures but I hope you will like the layout of this album. I used Daphne's instructions from Scrap N Create. She does a fabulous job in showing you how to put this album together. There are several videos- I will attach the first one that shows you how to make the base-
I pretty much followed her instructions with just a couple of exceptions. I didn't do 2 waterfalls- plus I made a few changes on the pages. But overall I followed Daphne. The pictures below show the spine and the back cover. I plan on hanging some charms from the spine.
The next 3 pictures show the first pages. The left hand side is a pocket that closes with a magnet. The right hand side is a huge area when fully opened for pictures. The closure is a card that is tied with a ribbon. The back of the card has magnets that keep the page closed.
When you turn the page you will see a fold out on the left hand side with lots of room for photos. The right is another page that opens up at the top but is a pocket at the bottom. The cut aparts fit in there and work to help keep it closed.
The next 2 pages are "Mirror Images"- in that they are alike on the outside. Once opened I used different paper for the fold outs. Look at the room!
The next few pages are just repeating the fold outs that were on the preceding pages. But I used different paper to decorate these pages.
This last picture is of the inserts for each page. They have a tab at the end of the page to access them easily. I did photo mat a couple of the pages and added some pockets so pictures can be tucked in them.
A lot of pictures, I know, but I wanted to show you the fabulous Graphic 45 paper. I used their 12 x 12 plus the 12 x 12 Patterns and solid paper. In hindsight, it might have been more economical to used the 8 x 8 paper since that is the size of the pages. I haven't decided if I will keep this album or sell it. It was a lot of fun to make and the paper is gorgeous! Tough decision!
We finally got some warm weather ! We actually had hail over the weekend! Weird or what! Yesterday it was in the 80's and today it will be in the 70's - Just lovely! Hope it's nice where you are! Have a fabulous day!
