Hello, G45ers!

  Today on the Graphic 45 blog, we have a #SimplyG45 mini album video tutorial along with a coordinating Beach Bag Mini Album Holder by the wildly talented, Yulia Kuznetsova.  Both the minis and the beach bag have been created using our Tropical Travelogue - Deluxe Collector’s Edition and Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flower Dies.  So grab your paper stash and let's start creating!  


Tropical bag and mini-album «Tropical Travelogue»

By Yulia Kuznetsova


“Hello dear Friends! August is a great time to relax by the sea. Do you have any photos you want to save?

ATC box and ATC - envelopes are a great idea to keep memories of a trip to the sea. I chose a vibrant and dynamic collection - Tropical Travelogue - to keep our old travel photos. I made a tropical bag out of a box and mini-album. To create a mini-album you need envelopes and 2 or 3 sheets of paper.


Tip: Use small envelopes to store photos or notes of the traveler.

Tip: Use ink to tint the edges of the card for journaling. So your project will look harmonious and complete.


Three mini-albums are stored in a tropical bag. I made it out of the ATS box.

Tip: Use scraps of paper to create flowers. It's fun and creative. You can make the kind of flowers you want.

I invite you to see how easy and fun to make a mini album is in this Video-tutorial!
