It's been such a fun week on the blog, and we are ending it with another fabulous project from Alexandra Morein! She made an incredible Nature Sketchbook mini album from scratch using chipboard and our Policy Envelope Staples! She shows you how you can make one too in her great video tutorial below:

"One of the products by Graphic 45 that I really love are the policy envelopes. You can get them in a variety of sizes:

ATC (3" X 4")
Square (5.25"x 5.25")
Regular (4.75" x 6.5")
Large (4.13" x 9")

In the album which I want to share with you today, I used the regular size and turned the envelopes into the pocket pages, adding a shaker in the middle. The pages/envelopes can be used either for storing pictures (as they are, i.e. not matted), or for putting several photo mats/tags/memorabilia inside. For embellishing the album I used the papers from the Nature Sketchbook collection by Graphic 45.

You can fit 3.5" X 5" photos inside the shaker pages, while each of the 6 pocket pages of the album can hold at least 10 pictures of the stated size. I planned to use the album as a photo holder, that's why the pages are embellished in a minimalistic style, the center of attention is the shaker frame in the middle of each page.


The pages are attached to the moving spine, which allows to unfold the whole cover of the album completely flat and easily flip through the pages." ~Alexandra

HOW STUPENDOUS WAS THIS ALBUM MADE WITH POLICY ENVELOPES!! I LOVE THE SHAKER TOPS, ALSO!!

Thank you for the tutorial Alexandra! Great album!

Love this album! Will definitely watch the tutorial!

Such a fabulous album.

Wow - very labor intensive, but I think it would be well worth making cause there's so many techniques to learn. I've watched the tutorial and will probably watch it several more times. Thanks for sharing!

I would like to know where to purchase the corner matic tool. This book is lovely.
