“I am excited to share my #ClubG45LeveledUp challenge project.  The challenge is taking a ClubG45 project and adding my own special touches taking the project to the next level.  I choose the Vol 3 – 2019 A Proper Gentleman’s Board Book originally designed by the very talented Annette Green.  I added pockets and tags to this project and used the very awesome Christmas Time paper collection.  I just love anything steampunk and gave me a chance to use the gear die by Graphic 45.  There is a step-by-step written tutorial and tutorial video for this project.

The album is 5 x 7” with 6 board pages, 3 tag pages, pockets and more tags.



The inside cover pockets are from the original design.  I added the pockets and tags for 4 of the pages.




Making ½” or ¾” flags in different sizes to put behind a sticker or cut out pieces makes for easy and fun decorating.









I hope you like this project and try your hand at this easy and fun board book.” ~Melissa
