Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box and Prima Almanac Album

Hello, today we have a beautiful album in a box made by Lisa.
Lisa has made a small album to go into the box using a 6 x 6 paper pad
called Almanac collection by Prima to decorate with throughout the project.

The box is by Graphic 45 and Lisa used the black one, but it also comes in Ivory and Kraft,
you do get 6 cardstock photo mats inside the box too.


 The mixed media box has a window cut out of the front so you can see what is on the 
front of the album.

Photo mats are added to the pages and Lisa used a decorative corner punch
through out the album called corner triple.

On the page above Lisa has created a pocket with some of the papers.

Lisa has added a tag to the one page and used a bird cage die on the next page called
Caged bird by Tim Holtz 

The papers are so pretty that you do not need lots of extras, on this page lisa only added
little butterflies punched from a Martha Stewart punch called 3 in 1 classic butterfly.

Here is a side view

On the side of the box Lisa used a rustic label holder.

A large filigree metal corner is used on the bottom right of box.
Lisa has added some paper flowers and leaves to decorate the top corner.
Lisa will be running a class in the new year to make this beautiful box and album
so be sure to watch out for it.
