**G45 Mini**

 Hello all! I have a mini that I did using the G45 "Ladies Diary" Collection and a G45 mini "Envelope Album". These and many of the things that I used in this mini is available in the Flying Unicorn store. You will love using the Ladies Diary Collection. G45 always impresses me with the graphics that they use, they just scream to be fussy cut! On this project I did!! Lots of fussy cutting!! Soooo Much fun!!

 I made the mini for my DD. This is her senior year in high school. The envelope album is perfect for stashing away those high school memories that she will want to have for years to come. Here are the pictures of it from front to back.

These are pics of the entire out side of the Album. I Used Prima flowers and Alda has the store loaded with Yummy flowers!! I piece of bling that I had tucked away, lace and seam binding that I colored to match. I used a piece of CS that was left over from the July KOM, embossing folder, and inked the edges of the back panel. Lets take a look inside shall we?!

This is the front cover. I used some more Prima flowers and a Melissa Frances frame. The Lettering is EKsuccess. The 13 is the year she graduates and the frame highlighted that perfectly! You can find the frame and many others in the Flying Unicorn store. Next 2 pages..

All of the images are those fussy cut from this amazing pp. The large flower is Dusty Attic and the cute little hanger is TH. These worked out perfectly for helping to hold things in place and I also used a little embellie that I had in my stash to accent it with. I used some foam dots to add some dimension and ink the edges as well. The ink that I used was the Ingrid Blume "branch bark". You can find many of these inks in the Flying Unicorn store and the hangers as well. Next 2 pages..

 On these 2 pages I used some Dusty Attic flowers and some Prima flowers that was Left from My July KOM. You get so many amazing blooms in Alda's kits you can use them for many projects! The Kaisercraft frame is also from the kit that I adorned with some pearls and a little ribbon bow. The lace is some from my stash. The image on the first one has been popped up so more pics or memorabilia can be added. The 2nd one the lower piece has been popped up and a picture can be added. These images are soooo Gorgeous!! Next 2 pages..

 On the 1st one here, I used a DA dress form that I painted some gesso on it. Then added a Prima flower. The Hanger is another of the TH ones. There is a lot of them in the package!! I framed one of the image with CS and some pearls from my stash. The images are lifted so that some little things can be tucked under them as well. The 2nd page I used some lace that I glued in place in the lower areas and sides so that a picture can be placed there as well. The images are attached together as a whole piece on top of the lace and then some glue dots used to attach them to the lace. I did this in select areas so that the lace would still work as a pocket to hold a photo. The tag is simply slid in side and can hold journaling on the back. Next 2 pages.

On these to I kinda had prom in mind and thought the images worked really well with this idea. The Top one I used another hanger and Prima flower and a little dangle that I had in my stash. The card can be removed for journaling. The Bottom one you can add a photo behind the car. The lace here is actually pp from the collection. Last to pages..

The card can be removed on this one as well for journaling. I used another hanger here as well and attached a bow and some little dangles from my stash as well. On the back and last page I attached the images so that the pocket can still be used without messing up the design. The 2 stamp images actually hold down the piece to the left. Kinda a catch for the flap that isn't glued down in that area. All of the images you see and the PP are all from this collection. I LOVED LOVED this collection and it is extremely fun to use!! I hope that I have inspired you to make one for a special lady in your life! Hugs for now!!!
