#G45Album - Love Notes Tag Album

By Joanne Bain


“Hello G45er’s!!


Joanne here with you today to share a super sweet mini album created with the gorgeous Love Notes collection. This collection is simply beautiful, I especially love the black and cream colour mix with the pops of red.


So everywhere now we are hearing of these little pocket photo printers like the HP Sprocket that print out little photos, so with that in mind, I created this sweet mini album to showcase them.


This little mini album has space for at least 10 photos, plus extra if you want to just slip them in behind the pockets and it also has pages for journaling. I think it packs a punch for a little mini album.


‘Ever Mine Mini Album’


This album was created using the small G45 ATC policy envelopes. Once the album base was all together I then cut open the bottoms of the envelopes to then allow for the G45 ATC Black Tags to slide inside.



To create the cover I fussy cut a few images from the Love Notes papers and then went about layering. The images are just so beautiful they called to be fussy cut.



To keep the album closed I used the ring clip that comes with the tag set. I then added some coordinating chain and some smaller tags from the Love Notes Sticker sheet.



I have created a simple Snapguide tutorial to show you how to create the album base ready for you to add your own paper choice and details.

The inside pages were created using the smaller Love Notes Journaling & Ephemera Cards.

These make the perfect page base to add extra little details too.




I have created paper bands to allow for extra journaling or photos to be slipped in behind.

I like how you added the little pieces, like the postage stamps. The cutting must take a long time, but it makes such a nice impact. Great job.
