Hello everyone, I am so happy to share my latest completed project: a mini album using the Safari Adventure collection from Graphic 45. I made this mini album for the purpose of holding photos of our latest trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. I really felt that this collection was the perfect match for my photos, and of course it was a lot of fun to make.
As usual with most of my projects, this mini album is made out of chipboard and consists of two pieces: the outside container which is an altered box and the actual mini album.
For the cover I went a little wild and fuzzy cut the awesome images from the collection and created this fantasy world full of creatures from the jungle.
For the cover I wanted the focus to be the gorgeous image of the tiger, so even though I already mounted all my elements on chipboard, I padded the tiger with three layers to make him pop.
The sides of the box are decorated with animal print papers from the collection. I also used a metal lion head embellishment as a decor piece. He does double duty, as he serves as a level to open the box.
The inside mini album is also made out of chipboard. The cover was made with a 4×6 ephemera card from the collection mounted on chipboard as decor.
On the side of the mini I used burlap fabric and a vintage button to complete the look.
The inside pages were so easy to create by just mixing all of the gorgeous papers from the collection.
The first page has a chipboard frame that can hold either an ephemera card or 4×6 photos.
I made lots of flaps decorated with the amazing images and the matching ephemera cards.
I also added pockets and envelopes to hold my tickets and mementos.
Completed with decorated inserts with fuzzy cut images from the collection.
I am hoping that you guys like this project as much as I did. I had so much fun making this mini album, that I already have project number two made with this paper collection completed and ready to share in my next post. I hope to see you real soon then!
