Hi Graphic 45 Fans! The chilly weather is making me long for summer, the beach and sand, seashores and collecting seashells….I could go on and on and on…sigh! The Sun Kissed Collection for Graphic 45 just puts a smile on my face with the anticipation of warmer weather and travel. Are you ready for warmer weather? I created a travel size Sun, Sand and Sea Passport Album….never to early to start those summer plans!

Begin by cutting chipboard using the passport die; adhere Graphic 45 Sun Kissed pattern paper and Epherema cards to inside of cover.

Add fussy cut images to pages using pop dots.

Fold larger Epherema Cards to pages to add extra space for journaling or photos.

Create small pockets to slide tags into.

Add borders to top of pockets and pages.

Create hidden pockets behind mats by only adding adhesive to three sides of mat.

Layer circle die cuts from pattern paper to for photo mats or journal cards.

Add flower soft to center of flowers to create added dimension.

Tie pages inside of passport album with ribbon.

I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial today but I am also sharing it on my You Tube Channel if you need to see it again. Pam
