*French Country* Mini Album

Good morning friends!
This is my first project working with Graphic45 papers.
They are beautiful, inspiring and such great quality.
My inspiration for this album came from one of my favourite paper crafters, her name is Anne Rostad, she is one of the designers for Graphic45, you can have a look at her wonderful projects and check out her tutorial for this album here.
There are so many pictures to show you, so I will do 2 posts, here goes with the first one.....

These are the papers I used
 *French Country*


The album measures 9.5 x 6.75 inches.  It has a flap at the right side that holds in place with a magnet

I used the *stack the deck* binding by Laura Dennison at *Following the Paper Trail*.  Here's the video tutorial for this binding.

Inside front cover and first page
Each page has many flips, flaps and pockets & holds tons of pictures. They each have a large photo mat too.

Inside the flaps of the first page.  

2nd Page
The piece at the left is a fold out (below)

This is a frame.
It is open at the top so that a picture can be inserted, then it slips under the side pocket on the right.

Back of the frame has a pocket

On the right is a torn paper pocket which holds a photo mat.  The small frame is open at the top to hold a photo.

3rd Page
On the left is a side pocket which holds a fold out insert, (below) it also has a belly band with a large photo mat.  On the right is a country scene (inspired by Anne Rostad) with a fence and barn.  The barn folds out & can hold 2 photo's. (below)

Page 4
The pocket on the left holds a photo mat and an insert, seen below.

 back of the insert has a pocket

The black pages of page 4 (above) open up at each side.
This is the left side

Right side

When you lift up the black page, this is what's underneath.....lots of fussy cutting on this album

 Okay, I'll end this post here, and do another post soon to show you the rest of the pictures.

Thanks for being here.
