Don’t you just love this gorgeous vintage inspired paper by Graphic45? It is my all time favorite brand & I can just stare at their papers for hours. It was a very fun album to make and it took me about 6 hours to complete (and film). It has a lot of room for sticking photos & writing about your travels
Sorry for the dirty hands, I followed a workshop by fellow YouTuber France Papillon the day before I filmed this, so my hands were dirty all weekend!
I had to cut out bits to keep the video shorter, so I’m sorry if things are unclear. Of course you can ask me anything in the comments & I will try to answer you as best as possible!

Another workshop kit from ScrapAMoment, I really really love this one. The original had a red/white baker twine but I swapped it for a naturel twine. It was so much fun to make and really easy!
I made a video of the process which you can see after the jump, together with more pictures and which products I used.

You can make this mini album with just a single 12″ sheet of paper, which is great! Decorate it with your favorite paper & embellishments and just have fun! This Graphic45 paper is so pretty, it was hard to cut up but I really like the result. As you can see in the video, I did make a mistake and now the album opens up the wrong way, but that’s okay.

I still had some great Graphic45 paper laying around from the “Le Cirque Collection” and decided to make this postcard! I also used some embossing and ink. The card turned out a little different than I planned, but I am happy with the result. It reminds me of the old Big Top, the Ringling Brothers… How exciting it must have been to visit the circus in the early 1900’s… Quick tip: if you are in the mood for a great circus movie, watch “Water for Elephants”. It stars Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon and I really love it. Here are some pictures and yes, I made a video. The list of materials I’ve used are below the video. Enjoy!
