This Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Mini Album is a chunky monkey! In fact if you decide to follow my lead on making one just like it, may I suggest you get two paper packs because you will be using them.
Graphic 45 Collector’s Edition packs do supply you with plenty of papers (16 sheets to be exact), plus a sticker sheet and chipboard pieces; but if you plan on a project of this magnitude, be sure to have a couple of paper packs, or perhaps other Graphic 45 sheets from other projects that will coordinate with Olde Curiosity Shoppe.
What inspired me to add flips and folds to the Graphic 45 Rectangle Tag & Pocket Album is that you’ll find that it provides you with plenty of space between the signatures to do so. You’ll add more “real estate” for pictures and journaling spots when you do this.
Another great thing about the Graphic 45 Tag and Pocket Album is that it’s available in 3 colors. They’re available in Black (the one I used), in Craft color and Ivory. So whether your style falls into vintage, mystical, shabby chic, etc., Graphic 45 has a mini album to fit YOUR style.
This Paper Purse Gift Bag is my last design team project for KS4U.net and it’s also a GIVEAWAY! One lucky subscriber will get this large paper purse with a flip book mini album and a set of 4 greeting cards. All you have to do to enter is comment down below. One comment will suffice. And please make sure you tell me what you go by on YouTube so that I know who I’m chatting with!
This Paper Purse Gift Bag was created using Graphic 45 Artisan Style. I used a Martha Stewart paper punch to punch around the edges of the black card stock. I decorated the upper part with black trim from KS4U. The metals and the flowers are also from KS4U.
The flip book mini album base is by Teresa Collins. I used papers from Graphic 45 Artisan Style as well. I also made a charm and attached it to the mini album. The owl that you see on the charm comes from KS4U. I adorned the spine of this beautiful flip book mini with a wide trim from the shop. I also decorated the cover with blue and black flowers, a black butterfly and blue swirly bling.
I left the greeting cards plain and simple because, in my opinion, the paper speaks for itself. These blank greeting cards were also made using the Artisan Style paper collection.
I hope the lucky winner enjoys this elegant keep-sake just as much as I enjoyed creating it! Thank you so very much for leaving such great comments! I will announce the winner Saturday! Good Luck!
