Nutcracker Christmas Album

Hello, G45ers!

  With Pantone announcing the color of the year Very-peri we thought it would be the perfect day to showcase this gorgeous Veri-peri Christmas Nutcracker Album by Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Janus Zate.  This album highlights all the feminine colors in our Nutcracker Sweet – Deluxe Collector’s Edition, yet it still embodies the spirit of Christmas.  Be sure to watch the process video to see this dimensional DIY scrapbook come together, and don’t forget to grab your supplies and create along!


Nutcracker Sweet Album

By Janus Zate 


“Hello G45ers! This is Janus and I’m here to share with you this album I created using the Nutcracker Sweet – Deluxe Collector’s Edition.

I love how regal the colours in this collection are without losing that Christmas feel.

I started off with setting up the album’s entire base, namely, the pages, covers and spine.



The size of the album is 20cm x 14cm or roughly about 8 in x 5.5 in and decorated it with stickers and chipboards that come with the collection.


You’ll need to prepare the following items cut at these measurements to recreate the project:

  • 5 pieces of foam sheets at  20cm x 14cm

  • 10 pieces of Nutcracker Sweet papers 20cm x 14cm

  • 4 glitter card stocks cut at 20cm x 4cm, scored and divided in 3 parts

  • 1 glitter cardstock cut at 20 x 20 cm with the centre scored with a 6cm width or however thick your album is.


Whenever I work on albums I work on the pages next after assembling the album’s base. Once I’ve been able to finish the pages and have glued them onto my album, that’s when I work on the cover.



Tip: Add some fake pearls to give some more shine and sparkle. I love how these small details make such huge impact on the overall look of the project.


Ultimately the sizes and measurements I provided are just guides and you can work on this any way you like, in any size, shape and form.

You can watch the full process over at my Youtube Channel.
