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.

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:

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

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. I also created a baby girl album as you never know what you will need for a gift. You can find the Baby girl version here.

I will enter this album in the following challenges:
