Hello, G45ers!

  Welcome to the #G45DarkSide.  This post shows you how to take our darker paper collections and turn them into a delightful and fun Mini Album, all in celebration of our October Challenge - #G45LightSide vs #G45Darkside.  This Kaleidoscope album along with the video tour and video tutorial have all been created by Brand Ambassador, Maria Smeshkova.  Follow along with the videos to learn a few new techniques that you can incorporate into our next project, and be sure to leave your love for Maria in the comments below.  


Kaleidoscope Mini Album - #G45DarkSide

By Maria Smeshkova 


“Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share my mini album for this monthly #G45LightSide vs #G45Darkside challenge. I chose #G45DarkSide and fabulous Kaleidoscope collection for my project.


I used Crackle accents for decoration frame on the cover.





I used also plastic Die Cuts painted with alcohol ink.

I would have loved a cutting list also giving where to score. It was sometimes difficult to see where to score and I had to play the video several times to work this out. However it was worth it for such a lovely album.
