Using WorldWin Papers in Construction...

In the construction of mini albums, that is! Here on the WorldWIn blog, we usually share with you how pretty the papers are, and we show you what amazing things you can make where the papers are the "star of the show."

Today, I want to show you how amazing WorldWin products are BEHIND THE SCENES!

I used WorldWin Chipboard and Cardstock as the foundation for this mini album. Graphic 45 is a design team sponsor, so I also use the Graphic 45 Good Ol' Sport paper collection.

I am a huge fan of the WorldWin Chipboard and use it for a lot of different things. It is very sturdy and easy to work with. 

Here is a little video tutorial to show you how to create the actual base of the album.

I used a combination of the chipboard and two weights of black cardstock: Smooth Black which is 95# weight and ColorMates Heritage Black which is 65# weight. 

For this sporty mini, I used almost a full 12 x 12 pad of the Graphic 45 Good Ol' Sport papers, plus I added in some of the G45 retired collections that seemed to "match." 

This mini is 5 x 7 x 2 inches. It is a fun size, and jam packed with pocket and flaps!

Here is a peeky at what the album looks like opened up. You can see it is chock full of goodness! The WorldWin cardstock is very nice weight to work with, and stands up to the "abuse" of a mini album. 

Each page is simply cardstock, layered together. As they say, I don't make anything without WorldWin cardstock! I think I may have used up a whole pack with this project! {wink}

Here is another video to give you a look at each page of the mini. You can see every pocket and flap.

Thank you, Graphic 45, for sponsoring the WorldWin Papers team! We appreciate you!

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous! I recently "discovered" World Win cardstock, and I have to say, it is by far the best I've worked with...so many different weights to suit all crafting needs and the color is wonderful. You really showed what a "workhorse" it is in this wonderful mini album!
