Hello dear visitors!!
(You can purchase a kit for creating this mini album from "Photographs and Memories Scrapbooking" here: https://goo.gl/fX3DmB)
One of the products by Graphic 45 that I really love are the policy envelopes. You can get them in a variety of sizes:
In the album which I want to share with you today, I used the regular size and turned the envelopes into the pocket pages, adding a shaker in the middle. The pages/envelopes can be used either for storing pictures (as they are, i.e. not matted), or for putting several photo mats/tags/memorabilia inside. For embellishing the album I used the papers from the Nature Sketchbook collection by Graphic 45.
You can fit 3.5" X 5" photos inside the shaker pages, while each of the 6 pocket pages of the album can hold at least 10 pictures of the stated size. I planned to use the album as a photo holder, that's why the pages are embellished in a minimalistic style, the center of attention is the shaker frame in the middle of each page.
The photo mats are stamped with the various Nature Sketchbook stamp sets. There are 3 sets all together:
The pages are attached to the moving spine, which allows to unfold the whole cover of the album completely flat and easily flip through the pages.
Here is a closer look:
By the way, the slides that you see here were created using the stamp and dies set by Paper Artsy - which is called 'Hot Picks Slidemount'. To create a film inside the slides, I colored the acetate squares with different alcohol inks and placed them in between the die cut slides.
On the spine of the album as well as on the front cover I used several of the chipboard pieces from the Nature Sketchbook collection, as well as the die cut flowers. The rest of the flowers are from I Am Roses:
Here is a video tutorial which I hope you will find useful :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great creative day.
