This is the most beautiful paper I have seen in a long time (except Christmas paper of course) I purchased this paper a while ago but had a hard time using it because I wanted just the perfect album to make out of it. This is it, this is the album. I got this idea from LMs Crafty Creations on you tube. She is brilliant and a gift to the You Tube scrapbooking world. Here is a link to her channel. www.youtube.com/user/LMsCraftyCreations/videos
The paper I used for this creation is Graphic 45’s Secret Garden collection. It holds enough photos for any occasion you like. The album is for sale at $100.00
Here is the cover. I left it plain because this paper does not need frills and bling. Its beautiful all by itself. I did put glossy accent on the key and the flower centers at the bottom. Just to add texture and make them pop a little.
When you open the book, it folds open on both sides of the album. The purple cards on the top and bottom open to reveal more space for photos or journaling. They close shut with magnets.
Then you open it again and you have the pink flaps. The outside flaps open to the right and the inside flaps open to the left.
Inside you will find purple flower paper with pockets to store more memorabilia, photos or to journal notes on. There are little booklets with adorable cards on them and plenty of tags.
Close the sides and open from the center again and you will have green flowers and a vertical belly band on each page in the center and pockets on the sides. Your photos can slide underneath the belly band and it holds them in place. The pockets are filled with more little booklets and journaling cards.
On the same page, the green flowered paper flips up on both sides to reveal a beautiful paper that is filled with words of antique gardens like; seed and grow. The yellow flowers sticker is mounted on card stock and punched out with my scallop punch. The side pockets are journaling cards I mounted on card stock (not from the collection) and made pockets out of them.
This picture is the other side of the album opening the pink flower pages to the left and to the right. It reveals the purple flower paper just like the left side.
Close that all up and open the inside next page to pretty blue paper. Each side has a horizontal belly band that will hold your photos and these two pages flip up. In the center are two built in booklets with magnetic closure.
Flip up the side papers and there are gorgeous pink flowers. More pockets with little booklets. I left the top part white so if someone wanted to journal or use a 5x7 photo it would be blank. The Secret Garden on the pockets are stickers from the collection put on card stock and placed on the paper.
When you open the inside blue pages, it becomes a brilliant yellow paper full of happy flowers and room for some serious photo collage or memorabilia
One more time and it is this wonderful bird cages and blue birds…. the greenery pops off the page. Its gorgeous.
The last pages open to the Secret Garden once again. I could not pick the pages I like best in this book. The whole book is wonderful and beautiful. If you interested in this book please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a comment.
Thank you for looking!
