2022-2023 Graphic45 Brand Ambassador
My name is Sabaa Hassan.
I’m a passionate crafter and mother of a toddler.
I live in New Delhi (India) with my family. About 2 years back, I started my journey in the field of crafting as a newbie and started learning the insights of this industry. I always pushed myself to learn and experiment with new things. I can proudly say that the passion I had on my first day has just increased day by day. Today I cannot imagine my day without crafting. It’s an unavoidable part of my life now. I enjoy every bit of it, be it failure or success I accept and learn from it. My passion for ART is growing with each and every project I make.
There is one thing that always drive me is that I am living my dream, and it makes my utterly happy and satisfied with my career.
In this colorful art world, nothing is impossible, in fact it has the power to turn your imagination into reality. Handmade Flowers and pastel bright colors are my weakness. Fresh and bright colors is my style. But I also love to try everything new in this paper crafting world! I am glad to meet you all virtually and hoping the same at your end too. Wishing you all Happy Crafting and a great day ahead.

DIY 6 Page Mini Album
By Sabaa Hassan
Create something feminine yet strong. Today I am here to present a very gorgeous and shabby “Ephemera Queen Album”. This is a beautifully crafted album with so much of intricate and fun elements. The album has a touch of mixed media techniques, which is enhancing the finished look to the next level. This is a perfect example to maximize the use of beautiful patterns and elements available in a paper pack.
“You are not his princess; you are your own queen.”
Ephemera Queen is such a beautiful collection, it has so many beautiful elements to play with. To start the process, I have an album base of 17*12 cm of size.
I have made inside pages of size 11*16 cm. I had added 2 leaves.
I have chosen light pattern to use as my page background. I have cut and stitched it with beige thread.
For each page I have decided to make different layouts. on some pages I have given card opening and on some pages, I have given pocket and tag holder. Below are the images, which will help you to understand each layout better.
Below are the required measurements.
Album base: 12* 17 cm
Spine: 5*17 cm
Inside pages: 11*16 cm
Cards sizes on each page
Page -1: 11*8 cm (1) and 10*15 cm (fold it in half)
Page -2: 10.5*15 cm (fold it in half)
Page -3: 10*7.5 cm
Page -4: 10.5*15 cm (fold it in half)
Page – 5: 9.5* 21 cm (score and fold it in 3 parts)
Page -6: 5*17cm
Then I have decorated the card using pattern paper and also, I have used coordinated handmade flowers, foliage and laces to decorate the surrounding areas.
At last, I have decorated my cover page. Which process video you can check out here.
Below is all the list of products I have used to make “Ephemera Queen Album”.
