8x8 A Ladies Diary PDF Tutorial

Well...I finally did it! I cut into my cherished G45 A Ladies Diary collection! I've been holding back with this one for a LONG time, a little nervous to use the only remaining papers of one of my very favorite collections. Because this one has been retired for quite awhile, I kept that in mind when I designed the pages in this album for anyone who may still be sitting on these papers as I was:)

I used 2 paper pads from this collection to create this album, one 12x12 and one 8x8. You can substitute with 2 of the 8x8 paper pads and be just fine, but you may have to make a few changes in embellishment if you only have the 12x12 paper pads. I used several images from the 8x8 papers that fit perfectly, but will be too large on the 12x12 sheets to recreate this exactly as shown.

I did use about 6 filler sheets from the B sides of other G45 collections to make this album (a black patterned paper and pink patterned paper), so you will need to select a few if you want to make this. There are many from the Botanical Tea collection that will work excellent with A Ladies Diary. I also used the 12x12 sticker sheet and chipboard tags in this collection for embellishment, but if you don't have these, you'll have quite a few images left over from the paper to cut out and use and really, any feminine/floral embellishment will be beautiful to accent these papers.

A PDF tutorial of this album is available HERE in my Etsy shop.

A video of this album showing all of the flaps and details is available on my YouTube channel HERE.

Next up is.... An Eerie Tale! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
