Fasion Forward Flip Fold Album

Graphic 45 is my favorite paper, I love art deco, and I love Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. When  I was invited to be part of the GSL design team and Graphic 45 issued "Fashion Forward", it was like the stars had aligned! This album is a GSL 6x9 Flip Fold Album.

I made a jacket for the album and used the GSL Deco Lattice as an emblishment.

This is the cover of the album, and highlights another thing that I love - the beautiful affirmations that "You are Loved" and "You are Enough".

I always include a "title page" in case the album is a gift. This G45 embellishment is not glued at the top so a picture or sentiment can slip down in the opening.

This album is actually a gift within a gift. These embellishments are adhered with a repositionable tape runner and can be detached to be used as a stand-alone gift or embellishment for a card or another album.  The base is a Graphic 45 policy envelope (it can also be a coin envelope or just a retangle of cardstock). Pieces of G45 paper are popped up. I used Gilders Paste on the GSL Postage Stamp which is also popped up, and a G45 sticker is on top of that. A gift card fits inside the envelope.

This beautiful lady is open on the side to slip in journaling.

The next flip looks like this:

A closer look at the far left shows journaling cards that are slipped into a trianglular pocket embellished with a GSL Art Deco Corner. The journaling cards can be sent as a card to someone special - the backs are as beautiful as the fronts.

The far right:

To the left and right of the center are 5"x5" cards made from other parts of the paper collection. They are slipped into mailing envelopes.

The next flip uncovers this panel:

And when it's flipped up, the entire album looks like this:

The middle panel is two envelopes for the large journaling cards, and the top and bottom panels are envelopes with blank ivory cards with gold edges.

Would you keep it or give it as a gift?
