Hello everyone, I am so happy to share with you my latest completed project: a mini album using the amazing Typography collection from Graphic 45.
The typography collection is one of the first paper pads I got from Graphic 45. I just love everything about this collection: its vibrant colors, the images, and the quotes that speak to my crafty heart.
I finally decided to cut into its gorgeous papers and make a mini album to document my journey as Brand Ambassador for Graphic 45.
The album is made out of chipboard, and it measures 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″. For the inside pages I used Kraft color cardstock as a base, and used the hidden hinge binding method to hold the pages together. On the cover I used an image from the collection that I backed with two layers of chipboard to make it the focal point of the cover.
I wanted to use some charms to decorate the spine, but when I saw some of the gorgeous mini images in the collection, I thought it was way better to make my own. I just used fuzzy cut pieces and added Tim Holtz glossy accents to them, a few pieces of metal chains were enough to attach them to the side of the album.
To keep my mini album securely closed ,I made a flap with two layers of papers and used magnets to adhere it to the back of the album.
The inside pages are full of interactive flaps, pockets and inserts using just the various papers from the collection.
I also made magnetic flaps that will hold my photos or ephemeras in place.
Putting together all of the interior pages was so easy. No matter what type of paper I used they all complemented one another perfectly.
As decoration for my pages I also used the amazing Graphic 45 Typography washi tape. I simply love the different quotes that you can get in one roll of tape.
I know I am gonna treasure this mini album forever. I am going to keep inside fo it photos of my projects and document the stories of this year as Brand Ambassador for Graphic 45. I hope that you have liked it!
