Le Tres Chic: large album

As a moderator for Paper Phenomenon, we were asked to review the tutorial. I always find it easier to moderate a tutorial by actually creating all the steps and boy does it take lots of scor-tape! I ran out and was not able to finish it, but I still wanted to post some photos of it. The measurements of this album are 9x11" with a double front cover.

The paper I used is DCWV Le Tres Chic. The photo won't show unfinished pages, but there are plently of those. This album has 8 pages instead of the standard 6.

Beach Bag Graphic45

 Hi, this album is made for a friend who is a trapeze artist. The paper line Le Cirque from Graphic45 was perfect for that theme. I used a simple page album using the binding rings as a closure.

Beach bag: Graphic45 Travellogue

 I used the tutorial from Paperphenomenon, Kathy Files Graphic45 Beach Bag, but created a smaller version, as I didn't have the 12x12 paper, but the 8x8 version. For her tutorials, you can visit her website.

Aside from the Graphic45 paper, I used cord from a bag that we had thrown away and fit perfectly as a handle on both sides. For an extra closure, I used a tyvek strip with design paper and two magnets.
