Nature Sketchbook Album In A Box - Edna Taylor

Hello and welcome to the blog today.

I've just finished my latest album using Graphic 45's 'Nature's Sketchbook' tucked into it's very own custom box. I've been itching to do a boxed album for a while so I'm really pleased to have completed it.

Graphic 45 Nature's Sketchbook
8 x 8" paper pad
Ephemera pack
6 x 6" plains and solids
Die cut flowers and Chipboard embellishments

I have a walk through on You Tube where you can see the pages in depth, so much easier than trying to photograph them. Well, it is in principle! That's if they will upload for you in the first place. LOL

I bought the box and album chipboard kit from Clare Charvill of 'My Creative Spirit' so I had the pleasure of making them up and decorating my album.

I used Tonic Studios spine creator die and Memory Book 2 Base Creator dies for flips and flaps and tags in the album.

Here are some pics of the pages

The album measures 5 x 7" and the spine is 2 1/2" deep.
Because the album has to fit into the box, any fussy embellishments were out so the front and spine are relatively flat.
I was running on vapours with the papers. I had used some of the 8 x 8" pad on other projects so it was a bit of a juggling act to cover both the box and finish the album. I used the same design to cover the front, back and spine which meant I could utilise the back of the paper pad and I also used one of the images from the front of the paper pad to add interest to the front of the album. There's no waste with G45!

I hope you enjoy it today.

 Have a great evening.
