Garden Charm Memory Album

by Karen Jiles | 5 years ago

Hi there,

Karen here, sharing a photo album created with the New “Garden Charm” paper stack. This stack is so lovely and great for creating your Mother’s Day gifts and cards. The papers are so classic and versatile to create with. They enabled me to create this photo album for my Mother. The album is a “Traditions” album- perfect for the photos of those captured moments that she holds dear and would love to preserve, share and reflect on for years to come. I’m including an easy tutorial below.

Metal Plate


Decorative Paperclips

Sanding Bar

Bone Folder

3D Tape

Xyron Adhesive: The New Creative Station

Step 1: Trim 2 pieces of patterned paper from the Garden Charm Stack down to the size of a photo album. The pieces should cover the front and inside cover of album. Repeat for the back cover also.  Tip: Form the papers over the album to create pre-folds/semi scored lines before adhering.



Step 2: Trim coordinated papers to cover spine; form the paper over the spine to create pre folds before adhering.





Step 3: Run papers through the New Creative Station to apply adhesive; adhere patterned papers to the photo album. 




Step 4: Adhere coordinated patterned paper strips to album and distress edges with coordinating chalk.



Step 5: Add layered journaling spots from the Garden Charm stack.



Step 6: Adhere frame, flowers and metal charm to the photo album.




Step 7: Continue embellishing with ribbon, flowers and paperclips.



Step 8: Design the inside cover with coordinating patterned papers from the Garden Charm stack. Add photos.
