I used Graphic 45's Couture collection to make my mini. Love that collection! Of course, I love anything G45! I found a YouTube by the amazingly talented Laura Denison of Following the Paper Trail for her Z-Flap Album here and decided to use that for my mini. It's unlike any I have made before, lots of flaps and pockets.
I used a cut-apart with one of my favorite Coco Chanel quotes on the cover. A peacock feather, a piece of netting and one of the pieces from the pockets and tags were also added to the cover.
There are 6 pockets and 12 flaps in this design. The flaps form a "Z" shape around the pockets. I used black card for the pockets and album foundation and cream card for the flaps. The pieces were then covered with mats made from the Couture papers.
I chose not to cover the inside of my flaps. Instead I added various stamps to each one, leaving the remainder free for journaling.
Each of the pockets has a 4x6 tag, for photos and/or additional journaling. There is a lot of real estate in this mini and I really like this quick, easy design.
You can see one of the chipboard pieces with another Coco Chanel quote that I added to my back inside cover, peeking out from under this last page. I love all of the designs in this paper collection, and used many of them in my mini.
There is a workshop scheduled at Creative You & Co. this month to make this mini. A list of our March classes can be found here.
I hope you enjoyed my newest mini album. I love making them. Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!
