Fabulous Mini Albums with from Einat and Lena!

  Washi Binding Mini Album, Staples, by Einat Kessler, Product by Graphic 45 photo 1

We love mini albums! Today, we dedicate the blog to them. You will love these great ideas from Einat Kessler and Lena Astafeva!

First, Einat shares how the inspiration struck for this great washi tape mini album! The binding is an awesome idea!

"I have a confession to make… whenever I see any paper product I immediately start thinking how I can create a mini album out of it. Are you like that too? The minute I saw those beautiful Staples tags and envelopes I knew they’ll be part of a mini album. But I wanted a quick binding method so I can complete the mini album in one evening. I used Washi Tape to bind the envelopes and tags together and even create a few flaps.

Tip #1: Find what you need in the papers. I used cut leaves from the Time Flies paper for the flowers on the cover.

Tip #2: When you create a mini album use different sizes of pages to keep it interesting." ~Einat

"I made a mini album using the tags. My family and I love travelling to the sea. There we pick up different stones and paint them. My daughter likes swimming and my son likes diving. The sea is magic wonder of nature for us. " ~Lena

A Card and Clock from our Graphic 45 Ambassadors!

249 

Today, our Ambassadors wow with incredible projects. We have two amazing projects from Jim, the Gentleman Crafter and Yumi Muraeda with an awesome upcycling idea using our DIY Craft Rolls. Also, there's a new blog contest this week! We're in for a treat!

First, Jim shares a great way to make a creative card with Enchanted Forest. How amazing!

"Modeled from the front entrance of Leeds Castle in Kent, England. As all of my cards, I make them out of thinner chipboard.  The card is made basically into a pocket with a pull out shaped card to write your sentiment.  For a little whimsy, the front door comes down with a pull of the Graphic 45 Stamped Brad to reveal a lady-in-waiting…Great card for a child, renaissance & medieval festival lovers or castle enthusiasts." ~Jim, the Gentleman Crafter
