Graphic 45 Children`s Hour Mini Album 7 1/2 x 5 Page Tutorial

Hi everyone :-)s
Here is the video tutorial, templates and measurements on how to make the pages and decorate them for the Graphic 45 Children`s Hour boxed mini album. This boxed album have 11 pages that measures 5 x 7 1/2 but you can also make 5 pages and have one side for each month. This album will also be great to use for the new paper collections from Graphic 45 :-)

Video tutorial

Will show how to construct and decorate this March pages with photo mats, pockets and tags.

There is also a large photo mat inside the page pocket and i used the stamp set from Time to flourish.

All the pages are build up the same way with the same tags, photo mats and calendar.

Templates and measurements for the flip pocket page.
I used black Bazzil for the base of my pages.

Insert for the page pocket.

Templates for the pocket and flap.

Here I used a punch from Martha Stewart and backed it with orange paper for the pocket under the flap. You can leave it as it is or cut around the border.

Here you can see the album inside the box but you can also bind it to covers.

Finish house with the boxed album in the middle.

Supply list :
Graphic 45 Children`s hour paper collection,  I used all 3 sizes of the papers, the ephemera cards and a chipboard cut out. Also used the time to flourish stamp set.There will be enough with one of each paper pads if you only make it into an album but if you make the house box also you need one more of the 12 x 12, 8x8 paper pads and some extra 12x12 sheets to cover the house and cream paper from Bazzill.Tyvek envelope, vinyl,glue and magnets.
For the house box I also used Dies from Memory box and Diamond dies, Chipboard, Claw feet and Ornate metal door pull from G45.
