Precious Memories, Baby Girl Album… Thursday, Jul 5 2018 

This is the  Baby girl version of the album I created using Graphic 45 Precious Memories papers. I based the album on this album tutorial  on Terry’s Scrapbooks blog I have adjusted some of the measurements to suit my needs and changed some of the lift out flaps for a neater finish. This is what I came up with:

front cover

Each of the pages have flip outs or pockets with  a magnet or ribbon closure.

front page

The page on the right has a concertina pocket perfect for adding those extra photos:

The ribbon ties are very simple and make a pretty closure:

middle page girl

This is the left hand page open with some tags and room to slide in photos:

middle page open2

The right hand page has a flap that opens using a magnet for closure

middle page open

The final page has a thicker gusset so the included waterfall insert has plenty of room, I have reduced this 1/8” as I think it sits better in the album:

The album was a lot of fun to create with a very simple tutorial to follow. You can find the Baby boy version of my album here.

Precious Memories, Baby Boy Album… Thursday, Jul 5 2018 

This post is very picture heavy and a bit long but I wanted to share my  Baby boy album I created using Graphic 45 Precious Memories papers. I based the album on this album tutorial  on Terry’s Scrapbooks blog I have adjusted some of the measurements to suit my needs and changed some of the lift out flaps for a neater finish. This is what I came up with:

I love Graphic 45!! They have such wonderful paper collections, the quality of the paper is fabulous and the designs and colours so vibrant and beautiful. Each collection comes with it’s own gorgeous papers, ephemera cards, chipboard, pockets and tags and stickers which is so helpful when designing as everything is there at your fingertips.
