Graphic 45 Artisan style photo album Part 1

Hi everyone :-)
Final I have finish my huge photo album using the wonderful Artisan style paper collection from Graphic 45. This album measure 9 3/4 x 12 and the pages are various sizes.
I will use this album for my family vacation photos and I think the colors are perfect to fit this theme :-)


 Made the cover as an easel stand up so it can be displayed nice on a shelf :-)

 All folded up.
All the pieces are hold together with magnets.

 The gate and door folded out and inside the door I plan to have a family photo.

Some close up pictures.

 Gate and door closed

 All folded out.

The easel can fold down so the book can be displayed upright.

 Some more photos of the album standing upright.

With the open door. The birds are placed on a wire from a writing pen to make them move and pop out :-)

 Seen from the top.

The album has 7 pages with flips and fold outs and there are also some add on photo booklets.

 Inside cover with a flip out.

 There are lots of space for photos in this album.

 1. page is a long and not so wide so the 2. page can bee seen behind.
The sign flips out and hold some photo mats with a magnet.

Backside of 1. page and 2. page front.
Dies from Tim Holtz on the door and Cheery Lynn on the top.

 The door folds out and there is space for a photo and journaling.

 Lots of tags inside the pockets.

Topper die from Tim Holtz and label die from Lala Land.

The front can also be folded flat so the gate shows up.
The gate is made by cutting out several pieces from the paper and glued together and I got the inspiration from the very talented and creative Tati scrap and here is the link to her YT. channel,
For the spine I used Kraft tex and dry embossed with Ebosser embossing folder.
