Traditions Photo Album using DCWV's Garden Charm Stack

Hi there,

Today, I'm sharing a photo album created with DCWV's 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 for years to come. I’m including an easy tutorial below.

Metal Plate


Decorative Paperclips

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 size of photo album. The pieces should cover the front and inside cover of album. Repeat for the back cover also.  Form the papers over the album to create pre-folds/semi scored lines before adhering.

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

Step 3: Run papers through the New Creative Station to apply adhesive and adhere patterned papers to 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 coordinated patterned papers from the Garden Charm stack. Add photos.
