It's the last day of our Week of Graphic 45 Albums and we are ending with a bang! Alexandra Morein and Magda Cortez have amazing projects for us today! This has been such a fun week and we are so honored you joined us. Now, off the Day 5 fun!
"In today’s post I would like to share a little boxed mini album. It’s is loaded into the box from the top, while the binding is located on the lid and holds 6 pocket pages. A magnet is preventing the inside photo mats to fall out of the pages when the album is extracted from the box.
On the front you will find shadow boxes with the cutouts from several of the “Voyage Beneath the Sea” paper sheets. If you like to add shells, cogs and sea themed die cuts to your projects, this paper collection is for you.
In the tutorial I am showing how to construct the base box, give you the measurements for putting the shadow boxes together, share a process of embellishing them and finally explain how to create the pages.
The finished project measures 5” tall (not including the feet and the knob on the lid), 4” wide (not including the ornate pulls on the sides) and 4” deep (with both of the shadow boxes). The most of the project is done using the 6”X6” paper pad and several 8”X8” sheets (from which I cut out the images for embellishing the shadow boxes and the inside pages of the album).
Being dimensional, the finished project can serve as a nice decoration piece.
I hope you will enjoy the tutorial and find it inspiring." ~Alexandra

Magda shares a great back-to-school backpack album with An ABC Primer! Perfect for this time of year!
"Time to back to school and with all the technology we have it’s so easy to take pictures at the right moment.. And this Backpack Mini Album is perfect for those pictures of the first day of school.. An ABC Primer Collector’s Edition is so pretty with the vintage style of the Old School days and invites me to make this tiny tag mini album in a backpack case…
Tip: If you like to use magnets for your mini albums you can save one magnet using one flat washer instead of two magnets.. Just make sure the flat washers are not stainless steel." ~Magda
