Our Challenge for you at Fussy and Fancy this week is Anything Goes. I’ve chosen to share my Mini Album using Graphic 45’s Portrait of a Lady collection:

Portrait of a lady A Goes

This post is a bit picture heavy but I wanted you to see all the wonderful papers and details. Let’s take a look through:

The album is based on a tutorial from Anne at Anne’s Paper Creations. The tutorial uses Graphic 45 Guilded Lily papers but is easily adjusted to other Graphic 45 collections. My first album using the tutorial was made using the Guilded Lily collection but I haven’t photographed it yet. The tutorial is very good and easy to follow. I would suggest that you watch each video through first as sometimes she adjusts her instructions throughout.

I made a few adjustments to the tutorial for this album using less fussy cutting and a few different flaps to suit my papers, but the main concept is the same
