Graphic 45 Love Notes Mini Album in a Box and Cards
Hello G45rs! Today I’m sharing a couple of Graphic 45 projects, using the NEW Love Notes collection.
My first project is a Mini Album in a Box, using the Graphic 45 5×5 Mixed Media Box in black.
The Mixed Media Box includes 6 cardstock photo mats. I used one of the photo mats to die-cut the frame and corner pieces on the cover; and the remaining five, I used to make the mini album.
The mini album was super easy to make! I just trimmed my papers from the collection and adhered them to each side of the cardstock.
Next, I used the Graphic 45 clock frame die and small corner die to die-cut the frame and four corners of my mini album. I also used the very same clock frame die to die-cut the center focal point. I then added some roses from the Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet Collection in Triumphant Red and Classic Ivory & Natural Linen.
I then punched three holes using my hole-puncher and added a coordinating piece of ribbon, to each hole, for the binding mechanism. It was that simple! And look how pretty it came out!
I decided to add a shaker element to my Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box. You’ve seen me do this before on my very first Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador project.
The shaker element works as a fun back-drop to the beautiful Clock die-cuts. I added corners using the corner die and finished the top off with a spray of roses and leaves from the Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet Collection in Triumphant Red and Classic Ivory & Natural Linen.
I then decided to add a different pattern, from the Love Notes Collection, to the sides, front, back and bottom of the Mixed Media Box.
I then finished it off with four Graphic 45 Antique Brass Claw Feet, and an Antique Brass Door Pull at the top center.
The Graphic 45 Love Notes collection provides you with beautiful and elegant designs that they do all the work for you.
For the larger card, I decided to triple-mat the ephemera card. I kept it simple, yet with such design elegance, do I really need to add anything else? For the note card, I used the same concept and double-matted the small Love Notes ephemera card.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed these Graphic 45 Love Notes project ideas, and that I’ve been able to inspire you in your own paper crafting projects. Until next time. Happy Crafting!
