Mon Amour Love Notes Album for Graphic 45

Hello again! Today I have another album for you that I designed for Graphic 45.  I used their beautiful Mon Amour paper collection and square policy envelopes to create this unique Love Notes Album.

It's really easy to create.  You just need to put your envelopes together to create  accordion type pages to have pockets for your tag photo mats.  Once your envelopes are attached, you measure and assemble a cover created from cardstock and then decorate as you desire.

On the inside flap I added a little waterfall section for those fun photos you might print off your phone.

Here's the waterfall opened to show the photo mats that flip up.  You could put about 20 little photos in this section.

In the accordion or envelope section, you can add photo mats made from tags or loose photos or notes.

This album will be up on the Graphic 45 blog a bit later this morning along with more photos, my tips and fun facts.  Check it out on their blog and leave a comment there as they have a blog giveaway each week and you might win. This week is a fabulous prize as they are every week!

Happy Crafting!

Edited to Add:  I've had quite a few message me and ask how to make this. The basic idea is not mine and I had forgotten where I originally saw it.  You use any type size envelopes you want to make the accordion pages/pockets and then make a cardstock cover with a flap to fit those pages.  I did a google search for Accordion album and found these instructions.  I hope it helps those of you wanting to make one. Click on the link >  Paper Craft Central.  The little waterfall inside the cover is made like any standard water fall. I did take a Graphic 45 tag and folded it to created the closure piece.  Add a magnet set to keep it closed before adding patterned paper.
