Two Ways to make a post bound photo album

Floral Shoppe Post Bound Albums
Hi Everyone,  I hope you had lovely weekends.  Today I'm sharing a couple of ways to create fun post bound photo albums. With PROM celebrations coming up for all this years school leavers I thought this paper collection was a perfect choice to create a PROM keepsake album.  The albums have ten black pages inside just waiting for photo's to be added. 
Floral Shoppe Prom Photo Album Graphic 45

I made one for a 40th Birthday party I went to this weekend and then a couple more pictured below. I love these floral papers from G45 and chose two colour ways to create the different looks on the albums. 
For the first I went for my favourite papers, Indigo Lilies and the B side of Burgundy Blossoms 

.....  and for the darker version I chose Sunlit Melody, Verdant Blossoms and for the fussy florals, Midnight Melody. 
I've put together an easy to follow video if you'd like to make on of these fun little albums yourself.  It includes dimensions for the chipboard covers, a full supply list for both albums, cutting guide for the papers and pages and how to put both styles of album together.  For the lettering I used the Altenew Caps Bold Alphabet Die.  

the following supplies to make these albums are also available from my website
