Tags Fully Loaded Mini Album and Video Tutorial

Who loves the new Graphic 45 Artisan Style paper?  I do, I do.  I came up with an awesome mini album that uses all three sizes of tags from Graphic 45.  This post gives you the material list, cutting guides to make the cover and pages and the matting guide.  The video tutorial is a step by step guide to make this mini, which also has all the dimensions stated in the video.  I love the look of this mini and the neat ways I used the tags.
