School Days- A Vintage Album

I am really quite excited to share this mini album with you all today.  I only learned about and fell in love with Graphic 45 early last year and by then it was too late to purchase collections that I was seeing and loving on Pinterest and YouTube.  Graphic 45 re-released this collection and naturally, I made a new mini album!

The tag is held to the cover with a brad.

Tim Holtz chain for closure.

This is my third album using the Paper Phenomenon "Max Your Mini" AKA "Witches Brew" album tutorial.  The page size is 8x8 making the album 8 1/2 x 8 1/2.  I think this is the perfect size for a smaller mini.  Big enough for 4x6 photos and small enough to maintain the cuteness factor.

Here we go with page 1.........

Well, you get the idea.  I really enjoyed working with this paper collection and making a cute school oriented mini album.  Here are the fronts of the remaining pages.....

My Album Recipe:

Tutorial: Paper Phenomenon  Max Your Mini from Holiday Kit Club #2
Paper: Graphic 45 ABC Primer Re-release, Bazzill Raven Black and Red
Embellishments: Rare Earth magnets, Tim Holtz chain closure, Michael's brads, EK Success edge punches
Inks: Distress Black Soot

I do hope you give this great album tutorial a try.  No matter what paper collection you use it is going to look great!

Have a happy day!

OH WOW Nancy another stunning album, you must have a production line going. I've not bought or used Graphic 45 before but think I'll have to invest. I'm just afraid that I will just want to look at it and stroke it rather than use it like I do with all my other collections.

Another lovely mini album Nancy, like you I am a real G45 fan and they really do lend themselves to these types of projects.
