Safari Adventure Staggered Mini Album by Ginny

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here and I'm pretty excited to be sharing a fabulous finished project that started with me getting to work with the designers at Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts to develop a new Staggered Mini Album Base.  This was an amazing experience and I can't wait to do again : )
I am loving how you can see all the layers of this book without even opening it.  It's like a sneak peek.  This album base will be coming to the shop very soon.  I'm just picturing it with a Christmas or Halloween theme?????  For this finished project I'm using Safari Adventure from Graphic 45.
I added some great coordinating chippies for my theme.....these are the Safari Shapes Set and they will also be available soon at Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  Couldn't ask for a better match!
Once you star flipping the pages you can really see the staggered effect of the page sizes. I added a few tags from Graphic 45 to give me room for larger pictures and journaling. 
I worked in some of the Safari Adventure chipboard pieces . There are also some layered flowers. Adding these embellishments caused the book to get very bulky.....but that's how I like mini albums so I'm thrilled.
Those laser cut borders work great to slip pictures in behind...finished with flat black to coordinate with the book cover.
I was able to create extra pockets for tags and more journaling. I love how the Safari Chippies colored in flat black create a graphic pop against the jungle themed papers : )
I did mention it got a little bulky?  Just the way I like it!!!!!
Loads of patterns here....but it does not seem busy with the solid borders.
Close up of the cover.....I even tucked a tiny chippie camera in there!!!!

Okay that's all for me. Be on the lookout for these awesome new Staggered Mini Album and Safari Shapes Sets.
Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
