Graphic 45 paper scrapbook for a dear friend.
I just love the Secret Garden papers from Graphic 45. I wanted to create a memory book for a friend and these papers were just perfect. I hand-made all the flowers and used the spellbinders nestabilities to help with the matting for the pictures. I used liquid pearls for accents and Cheery Lynn flourish for the pages.
I hope this album gives you ideas and enjoyment. :)
First page of the book.
2nd page. A photo can be slipped under the band to help with size.
I embossed some lavender paper and sanded it lightly of the top.
Inside the pocket are places to add writing or pictures.

I thought the embossing plate looked like a basket weave.
I used the spellbinder rose die cuts with this paper. Martha Stewart butterfly punches were also used throughout the album.
I decided to mod podge the back as it would wear better with time.
