Gorgeous Mini Albums Featuring A Ladies' Diary


Hello G45ers,

Happy Tuesday and welcome to today's fabulous Graphic 45 blog! We hope you are having a great day! We've got a ton of inspiration to bring to you today as we continue our week-long celebration of A Ladies' Diary crafts! Today we're going to share some incredible mini albums from Arlene Cuevas and Denise Hahn of our design team! Each of these minis is overflowing with beauty and imagination. You'll see some unique ways to use A Ladies' Diary as well as beautiful embellishments to create an exquisite work of art. We're going to have a lot of fun today, so let's get the party started! First up is this magnificent mini album created by Arlene Cuevas. Arlene used the Graphic 45 Metal Film Canister to create this marvelous mini. You can see how beautifully the Metal Film Canister looks when combined with A Ladies' Dairy! Arlene even created a great video in which she takes you on a tour of this splendid creation. Want to know how this amazing mini was created? There's even a great tutorial that Arlene created that shows you how to alter the accordion-fold mini album that comes with the Graphic 45 Metal Film Canister! Wow! Take it away, Arlene!

“I had a BLAST altering this Graphic 45 metal film canister using the new A Ladies’ Diary paper collection. The collection is the perfect mix of vintage-shabby chic. I incorporated an array of the coordinating chipboard pieces and card stock stickers, which made creating this piece of art so simple! I even included a brief tutorial to show you how to alter the accordion mini album that is included in the canister. Won’t you give one of these a go today? You’ll have so much fun!” ~ Arlene Cuevas
