Lisa with a Mini album showcasing Kaisercrafts' Great Southern Land....

Hi Everyone. Lisa here. Today I have a simple mini album to share, using Kaisercrafts 'Great Southern Land'. This is such a versatile range, yes I know I always say that...but its true! Not only is it great for Australian projects, its great for any Flora & Fauna pics, masculine projects, gardening projects just to name a few.

This the front view of the album when it is closed.
It is a very simple design using only 1 sheet of card stock, I have used the beautiful Bazzil card stock aptly named Rainforest. Just cut your card stock in half so that you have 2 pieces at 6x12. Then score each of those pieces at 4 then 8 inches so you end up with 6 smaller sections (3 on each half piece). You need to fold on the scores alternating, Mountain & Valley folds. Then overlap (adhere with glue or tape) two ends so you have a continuing piece.You should be left with five sections on each side, with your Mountain & Valley folds continuing...Gee hope this makes sense, its harder explaining that is actually doing it!

I used some of the gorgeous patterned papers & the journal cards to decorate.
I have used the Green Tara jute ribbon (love this) to wrap around the album to hold it all together.

The flower is handmade using lots of layers of flowers from this pack....Yes it's a Christmas embellishment pack! I wet them with glimmer mist, dried them inked the with Tim Holtz Tim Holtz distress inks & pinned them all together with a brad.

I was lucky enough to have a holiday in Port Douglas, Queensland recently. I was amazed at the beautiful flora we saw along the way & the sheer beauty of the Rainforest.
I have so many photos, too many to this mini just holds a sample of some of my favourite shots.

These are the photos that are inside my mini. As you can see they take up pretty much the entire page. After all, the photos are the focus. As the pages measure 4x6 you need to trim the photos down slightly.

I don't think it matters if you use photos of different orientation, as long as they are both the same direction on the same page opening.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to enter our Monthly Challenge...details here.
Have a great day.
