Hello friends, we are currently in Movie award’s season with the Emmy’s happening this past week and the Oscars at the end of the month, this inspired me to create my latest completed project: a Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood photo album and an altered box to store it.
Vintage Hollywood is hands down one of my favorite collections ever from Graphic 45, with all of the amazing vintage movie graphics that speak to my movie lover’s heart.
For this project I knew I had to go all out and create a big album to make justice to the gorgeous papers. Also created a coordinating altered box to store my album.
Let’s start with the box, for this project I used an old box from my pantry and altered using papers from the collection, die cuts and metal embellishments.
The gorgeous papers from the collection made this box super easy to do.
The box has a flap with magnets to keep the album accessible but secure.
I wanted the box to resemble a vintage trunk, so I added a handle made out of cardstock, hold together with brads to achieve the look.
For the album I used chipboard and cream cardstock as a base to create my pages. The album measures 61/2″ x 81/2″ and its full of interactive pages with pockets and flaps.
I also altered a Graphic 45 policy envelope to have extra storage for photos.
For the cover I used the images from one of the 4×6 ephemera cards. I loved the photo of the couple embracing and just framed with a die to accentuate it.
The whole album is full of fuzzy cut images to create dimension to the pages.
I am absolutely in love with all the ephemera cards from this collection. They are outstanding!
I love my album and plan to use it for photos from an Oscar viewing dinner party that I am hosting at the end of the month. Stay tuned for photos from the party and the decorations I am planning to make using papers also from this collection. Please visit my YouTube channel to watch the video for this project.
Thank you so much for reading!
