Graphic 45 Altered Art Album - Title Page

If you are looking for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge, scroll down.

A few weeks ago I shared a Graphic 45 Altered Art scrapbook album with you. See the post HERE.

To make the album, I cut the stand off the bottom of the Graphic 45 12x12 Easel Album and then flipped the album sideways so that the binding spiral is on the left side. The album is now a "book" rather than an easel album. 

I plan to create a title page, 12 monthly pages, and an end page. Since I am giving this album to my daughter as a gift, I will not be adding photos. I will attach photo mats to each page so that she can add her own photos.

Today Graphic 45 revealed the Title page layout.

I used bits of Olde Curiosity Shoppe, Le Cirque, and Steampunk Debutante for this page. I love the title from Le Cirque, because I think my daughter is both amazing and wonderful, and a bit unusual. The papers from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe and Le Cirque lines are perfect for the title page to this album. (All of these collections are retired, but some can still be found online.)

This album will be filled with grungy, wonderful, crinkled pages! I cannot wait to finish it and give to my daughter, Laura!

I used die cut templates to cut the paper and create a flower for the page. My daughter is not much of a girly girl, and she loves steampunk, so incorporated some of the elements from the paper, but still kept a feminine feel to the project. 

I hope you are enjoying this new "series" from me. I will have more pages to come!
