On The Boardwalk Mini Album by Sandy Windsor

Heading to the beach this summer? Check out this great mini-album created by Designer Sandy Windsor using the new Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk collection. Sandy's thoughts and design inspiration are quoted below each picture.

"I used an inexpensive child's board book to create my mini Boardwalk full of pages to capture fun memories....I could easily fill this mini with beach pix, vintage photos. or just fun family snapshots...still not sure which I will choose. I covered the book with a fun filled paper with cheerful photos and colors. The title is just one of the fun borders that is a part of this pack. I used some of the vintage photo tags to embellish the top of a larger interior tag and added some Prima flowers and a fun shell to the cover."

"Check out this fantastically fun paper....I could not bring myself to add more that some eyelash yarn.......lots of room for photos here....I may not add much at all...could not bear to cover up those 3 handsome gents in the corner!"

"Here I have added an envelope with a brad and floss closure...the envelope is cut from Plantin...there are more photo mats hiding inside. The frames are covered with more paper from the stack...and those fun tickets....don't for get to click to enlarge the photos...they are actually a border on one of the papers...I love the look of them!!!!"

"Here is a view of the envelope open with the additional photo mats....oh and did I say WOW....I just adore this beautiful orange lace ribbon by Prima!"

"I used sandpaper to created my pocket on this page....gotta love that bathing beauty tag not to mention the other ladies hanging out on the beach...I used another of the border pieces along the side of the page to add a title. the the top of the page you can see the back of an old clip on earring...I will use it to hold a photo."

"These pages have lots of room for photos or journaling....I have to share the link I used for this fabulous envelope page...check out this super fun tutorial by Laura from Following The Paper Trail The shell was cut with my Ocean of Words cart and will see that soon....."

"A pic of the shell opened up...don't know if you can see it in the pic but the two inside pages have been embossed with my Cuttlebug. The tags from the envelope page have some fiber and I added a shell to the smaller of the two...the post card is cut from one of the is accented with a paperclip with some buttons glued to the top."

"The last 2 pages are covered in fantastic designs....I used my Mickey and Friends cart to cut eh film frames, added some more of the tags from the stack and a bright Prima with a starfish bling as a center."

"One last shot of the the fun, fun tags from the 1st page."

What a fantastic mini-album! For more detail of this mini-album and to see more of Sandy's work, be sure to check out her blog: Details by Sandy.
