A Ladies Diary Memory Box Album

I'm back with a re-make of my Mon Amour album from last year using my all time favorite Graphic45 collection! This was so fun to make and a nice way to ease into this new year before I begin designing some new albums.

The best part about this re-make? I used just one 12x12 collector's edition pack of this collection to complete the album. This is a perfect tutorial for any of the collector's edition packs with minimal expense on the papers/embellishments.

Please come check out my YouTube video of this album showing all of the details HERE.

I followed my Mon Amour album tutorial very closely with only a few minor paper size adjustments and I've included a PDF file in the Mon Amour tutorial with all of the color photos of this finished album and changes to paper sizes for reference. There's also a 15 minute video included in the Mon Amour tutorial covering all of the embellishment tips and special information you may need to complete this album as shown. It's kind of a 2-for-1 on this tutorial!

Please be aware there is an 8x8 A Ladies Diary album tutorial listed in my shop, but it is a completely different album from this re-make. If you're interested in making this re-make, you'll be looking for the Mon Amour PDF/video tutorial listed in my shop HERE.

 Hope you all have fabulous week and I'll be back soon with a new creation!

7 x 10 1/2 St. Nicholas Album

Finally back to share a new Christmas album for this year! I've used the Graphic45 St. Nicholas collection in this album and it's a really beautiful and traditional collection. This album is 7" x 10 1/2" and 10 pages with lots of larger flaps for large photos.

I've used 2 of the 8x8 paper pads, one of the Patterns and Solids paper pads, the decorative chipboard tags, Pockets & Tags, Banners, sticker sheet and the Journaling/Ephemera cards to create this. I've done something a little different with the edges of the flaps in this album by adding a die-cut piece of cardstock to the flap edge instead of die-cutting the entire flap. I really loved being able to use a very detailed die on the edge like this.

This album worked up pretty fast, but still has a lot of detailed elements to it.

I have a PDF tutorial on this one that comes with two 30 minute tips and techniques videos that walk you through the front and back covers, spine, closure and the die-cut edge of the flaps.

The PDF tutorial is available in my Etsy shop HERE.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

I'll be back in January with some new creations...
