Graphic 45 Botanical Tea mini album

Hi everyone :-)
Had so much fun making this mini album with the gorgeous Botanical Tea collection from Graphic 45.
The album is made from 3 6x12 white Prismatic cardstock from Bazzil  and folded to make 2 pages at the same time. Then I attach flaps to get more place for photos. The pages can be taken out and use for photo frames. Bounded with hear clips. The album measure 6 1/4 x 4 1/4.
All the fussy cut outs are covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte.
Used Seam binding for the closure

Papers can soon be found at Kreativ scrapping
