Posted by Graphic 45 09/12/2018 28 Comment(s) Mini Albums,Tutorials,

Hello, G45ers!

 Welcome to another sunshine-filled edition to the Graphic 45 blog.  Today we have a next level Tag Mini Album in celebration of our #G45PopUp - September Challenge.  This album has been created by the Queen of Fussy Cutting, Joanne Bain.  Joanne has used our Sun Kissed paper collection and Tag Staples to create this Summer Beach Album.  Be sure to check out the Snapguide Tutorial so you too can create dimensional albums that bring your photo and memories to life.  


#G45PopUp - Tag Mini Album

By Joanne Bain

Hello, G45ers, Joanne here with you today to share a super cute pop-up folio created with G45 Tag Staples and the gorgeous Sunkissed collection. To be honest, I have never really done anything pop up before so this was kind of a first for me, so I chose to go very simple, but I am happy with the outcome.



The cover features lots of fussy cut images which have been layered to create dimension, I have also added some cheesecloth to give added texture.


On the inside of the folio, there is space for 2 photographs with tags that pull out of the top to allow for journaling.



When the folio is opened the whole inside pops forward. The center folds forward and pops out even more and features more fussy cut images and cheesecloth.



The G45 tags were perfect for creating this project as once the folio is closed all eyelet holes lined up and I was able to add split ring to hold the folio closed and add a cute little chain and tags for an added feature.



I have added a super easy Snapguide tutorial to create the basic pop up folio which you can then add your own paper choices to create your own pop out folio.

I love this little tag project. I have very few pieces left over from other albums, but I think I have enough for these little bits and pieces. Thank you of sharing. Ellen from Phoenix

What a cute project. I LOVE Sun Kissed, and would like to make something like this for my daughter. She and her hubby and two SMALL kiddos just returned from Hawaii, with a lot of photos to mount eventually. I really like how she made this--so many cute papers.

You used some great papers to make this little album. The cut out images look just perfect. I'm sure it took a long time, but was worth it in the end.

I adore this little album & have some sheets of paper from the gorgeous Sun Kissed collection in my stash. I also have the G45 dies waiting at my scrapbooking store to be picked up when we return from our latest trip. Fantastic idea thank you Joanne for your lovely project. Bev Drake .
