Graphic 45 French country double mini album tutorial

Hello everyone :-)

New mini album tutorial.

Used the gorgeous and vintage French Garden from Graphic 45
12 x 12 - 8 x 8 - 6 x 6 paper pads. Black policy envelopes
Stickers, cardstock and chipboard cut outs
The album measures 9 x 4 1/8

Design team project for Kreativ Scrapping
You can find most of the products i used here

Will show step by step how to cut up the envelopes and put it together again to a double mini album, 
The leftovers from the envelopes we will use for tags.
Then I will show how to decorate each page, a bit fussy cutting and how to make flowers.

This papers are so fun to work with and a lot to cut out :-)
If you don`t like fussy cutting so much I will show a bit how you can use the finish cut outs and stickers.

Hope you can use some Ideas and will have fun creating your own album :-)

Used a ornate metal door pullfor the bird nest.

  4. Wow - what an amazing amount of work went into this project. I loved the images and the paper collection. When I was still in Middle School - I used to buy these themed sets of notebooks, files, printed notepaper and letter writing paper and pencil bags- one the the sets I loved the most was a farm-themed set with a focus on sunflowers and cows - sunflowers were super trendy at the time. This project just reminded me of that - I'm going to have to go over to my mom's place and dig around my old stuff and see if I still have the pencil bag somewhere. This was beautiful. You're amazing!
