Prima Stationer's Desk for the Purse/Photo Bag Mini Album

Hello guys!

I finished another shaped mini album. For creating it I used a "Stationer's Desk" paper collection from Prima.

** Can you believe that my post with this album gained over 700 likes in Prima FaceBook Group?! Thank you, everyone who liked it and shared :)**



To tell you the truth, I didn't that much like these papers at first, and from the 12" x 12" sheets I bought only 2 pieces of the "Roses Are Red".

Since the album measures 8" X 6.5" I had to think about the way for creating the cover and the pages using only these 2 sheets (well, plus a 6" X 6" pad that I also had).

The album spine is 3" and there are 6 core pages in the album. For creating 4 of them I used Ginger's tutorial, and another 2 are simple pocket pages with the photo mats inside.








Here are just a couple of close-ups:


And more of the inside views:








I will soon have a tutorial for creating a smaller version of this purse album, so please stay tuned and subscribe to my You Tube Channel if you don't want to miss it.

Here's a video preview by the way :)



Have a great weekend!


Hugs,
Alexandra

    1. Конкретно в этой работе есть ремни, которые я сделала сама из крафт бумаги (боковые), а есть покупные/готовые (центральный передний, и ручки). Покупала их в магазине, которые называется Daiso (но не думаю, что его аналог есть в России)

  13. What can I say, your work is awesome as always. I know what you mean about this paper too, I loved the pack but then when you look at the individual papers to use...hmm, only a few really feel like they realy grab you BUT you have done an amazing job with them! :) xx

  18. Hi Alexandra.. I am in Australia..and being inspired to make a version of this project..I was asking if I am able to sell it? I would certainly be acknowledging your design? TIA

    1. Hello Frances,
      Yes you can sell the final result - which is the album itself. What I would not like people to do, is to sell kits (without contacting me first).
      Thank you very much for asking, I really appreciate that.

    1. Hello Subha! I appreciate your question. If your friend doesn't know English, you can help her & explain how to make the album, definitely. What I don't want people to do is to make money and give group classes for creating this project, as if they were the author.
      Once you handmade mini album is done, you are free to sell it or give it as a present to anyone you like.

      Regards,
      Alexandra
