8" x 8" Gilded Lily Album

I'm finally back! I had to take a very long and somewhat unexpected break from crafting for several months, but very excited to share my newest album using Graphic45's Gilded Lily collection!

My husband and I traveled to the UK and France a few months ago and we had the opportunity to visit Versailles while there, so this collection really inspired me to make an album to showcase our photos of the trip. What an amazing experience and truly beautiful country and people. My thoughts and prayers go out to Paris and the people of France after Friday's horrific events and I'd like to consider this new album a tribute to the City of Light and everyone who calls it home.

A little info about this album:
I used 2 of the 8x8 Gilded Lily paper pads, 1 of the 6x6 Patterns and Solids paper pads, decorative chipboard tags, Pockets & Tags, sticker sheet and Journaling/Ephemera cards.

I've supplemented the pages with a tan parchment cardstock on the base of each page for both a neutral space for larger photos and an effort to keep the supplies cost lower.

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

A start to finish video tutorial of this album is available in my Etsy shop HERE.

I've been asked more times than I can count to show a video of one of my completed albums with photos inside and I've finally done it! The YouTube video of this album shows the completed pages and info in the first 15 minutes and then the album with our vacation photos inside in the last 15 minutes. SO much fun adding those photos and seeing it all come together! I'll have to do that more often:)

HERE is the YouTube video of the album.

I'll be immediately jumping back into things with a new Christmas album coming soon!


  1. Well, you just jumped right back in! That is amazing! A question for you. Would you consider making an album using the Bo Bunny Love and Lace collection? Thanks for sharing the walk-thru of your albums.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! Stunningly beautiful!
