Wild & Free Mini Album
“Hello G45ers!! Cecilia here sharing my last tutorial for our loved Graphic 45. This time I made an album, in a different shape using the U binding, something really easy and quick to make for the next Mother’s Day or even Father’s Day, just change the paper collection and you’ll make it with the pictures, I think this will be a really nice present! I used the fabulous Wild & Free paper collection, you’ll need a few papers and save the rest for more amazing projects, all the material’s list is below.
I also want to say THANK YOU to Graphic 45 family for the 2 years I had the opportunity designing for my favorite brand, I’ll treasure those memories always, that’s why I made my last page with the word THANKS, but if you made the album, just play with your pictures, beautiful papers and embellishments!
Here’s the materials used:
Coffee Archival Permanent Ink.
Distress Oxide Ink Worn Lipstick by Ranger.
Deep Red cling stamps: Vintage photo frame set.
– Prima Marketing stamp #563196.
Memory Box stitched square layers die #30038.
2 Gold regular size eyelets.
A piece of trim to embellish the spine and some beads.
Sequins or mini beads for the widow.
2 pieces of acetate a bit bigger than the window.
Some flat magnets.
Liquid glue, double sided tape, and scrapbook tools.
Tips & Tricks:
TRICK – Because I forgot to measure the window space on my inside paper with the gorgeous monkeys, first I secured the paper in place with some clips, then I put a lamp on the back and easily saw where to mark and then cut out that piece of paper!
TIP – Cover the window’s edges before adding the acetate and you’ll see a beautiful glitter instead of the chipboard.
TIP – If you want to add bigger pictures don’t be afraid to cut them, just try to cut it in some place that doesn’t affect the focal point.
So thank you so much!! Don’t forget to tag us to see your beautiful album!!” ~Scrapbooking Cecilia
