The album cover has a number of cut out elements from the paper collection. I added Glossy Accents to the butterflies and hummingbird. The closure came with the Paper Phenomenon kit and is spectacular! I covered it with Gesso and a little Stickles for sparkle. All of the paper and chipboard for this project came from the kit.
The pages are made with a special pocket embedded in the design of the top and bottom of the base page. All other elements are added to the base page as pockets or flaps. We all used the very lovely Martha Stewart edge and corner punch to add lacy beauty.
The basic page design includes a decorated flap on top of the base page. The flap has a pocket on the top and the inside. All 6 pages follow this same format.
|Open the top flap
|And reveal another flap and pocket
|Back of page 1.
Flip the whole page over to reveal more flaps and pockets.
|Open "Bird" flap
|Back side of flap is perfect for adding 4x6 photos.
And here is a picture of the top loading and pocket loading tags where you can put more pictures and journaling.
All the remaining pages follow the same format and I decorated similar to Kathy Orta so I am only including pictures of the front and back of the next 5 pages.

Some parts of these pages I left undecorated just because I like the color of the paper!

Love this page the best!

I used lots of the cut outs from the paper collection as tags and page embellishments.
This is such a lovely set of Graphic 45 papers! I can't wait to finish my next project which is from the "My Design Mini" tutorial.
