Hello, G45ers!

 We invite you to join us for a spectacular Folding Mini Album video tutorial starring our pretty in pink Princess - paper collection.  This beautiful memory keeping album and step by step video are both brought to us by Brand Ambassador, Kasia Bogatko.  Be sure to take note of how the fussy cut flowers and our new Rose Bouquet Sets really take this project to the next level.

Princess Folding Album Tutorial

By Kasia Bogatko



Today I wanted to show you how to make a very simple album. Thanks to the fact that the G45 collections are so rich in accessories, stickers, elements for cutting, just choose one collection to create a complete project. It is also a good way to make everything fit together to avoid the wrong choice of colors or styles. I used Princess collection, very soft, feminine, full of flowers and beautiful, delicate patterns.


I have a folding album for you. Of course, you can do a lot of different caches or pockets in it, but this time I needed a quick and simple album. I made it based on a folding base. Below you have dimensions that I used. Match them to what you need. I recommend that the cover is always slightly larger than our pages, and with a thicker cardboard. One of the covers is glued on one end and the other on the other end. Note that one is on top of our page and the other on the bottom.

To cut the paper on our cover and pages, simply use a craft-knife and a ruler, or help yourself with cutting dies. I used cutting dies with a sewn edge. Prepare also photo placemats for the album. I recommend using a one color, smooth paper, that display pictures nicely. Remember that the photo-base is bigger than the photo.


On some pages I have also added small notes, you can add a few words from yourself, write memories. All of these elements can be found in the collection. I also cut flowers and leaves from large papers and I used them on 3d foam tape to create nice layers.


The interior of the album should remain flat and not very rich, but you can decorate the cover more spatially. I recommend you beautiful flowers from the Rose Bouquet collection. I used Precious Pink and Classic Ivory & Natural Linen. In the set you will find flowers in various sizes, from which you can arrange beautiful compositions.



I invite you to watch my video, in which you will see the process of decorating the album. I hope that I will inspire you to create with this beautiful collection as well as in many other styles.” ~Kasia

Thank you for your nice comment! :) In my local paper store (in Poland) and also online have so big cardboards - 70x100 cm (about 28x39"). I was sure that you can buy it anywhere. Maybe I should do a tutorial how to connect the smaller papers... I'll think about it!
