Instructions: To construct this album I have used Pocket and Flipfold Inserts E-Kraft as a base. Watch this video for easy steps to add Flip Fold Inserts E and F into your Flip Fold Albums. Choose the papers from the designer paper collection and cut them for all the inside panels, the cover, and the back. I have shaped down the inside flaps also by adjusting Border and the Regal Die on the edges. Once all the papers are decided and cut, cut white borders using The Border and Regal Die set. Adhere the white borders on the edges and then cover all the flaps with selected designer papers. All the flaps are finely scored and taped down using red tacky tape. All the inside folds have belly bands which can hold the tags on both sides. I have also made clear pockets on the both side flaps using Classic Border Basics Die and acetate sheet. For more detailed pictures you can visit my blog. After all the basic construction of album is done, it comes the time for it’s decoration. For flowers..Watch this video to learn how to create flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. I have stamped multiple images from Wildwood Florals Die with Plum Archival and cut them using its coordinating die. The leaves are all stamped with Library Green Archival inks and painted using Leaf Green and Olive Green Archival. The flowers are shaped using Deluxe flower shaping kit and the leaves and vines are kept flat without embossing. The leaves are simply glittered using an adhesive that dries clear. Fairies are from the paper collection itself and are cut using their coordinating dies. For rest of all other embellishments, I have stamped various images from the same collection, with black archival ink on smooth white card stock. All the images were then painted using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. The shades used are 003, 025, 026, 027, 034, 036, 037, 045, 046 and 031. Add a little glitter to all the embellishments. Though I have added magnets for making a closure for the album, I decided to further make a belly band across the album using Acetate sheet. Once all the embellishments are ready to assemble them together to create a scene on the belly band and the base of the album. Lastly, I have added a twine across the top hinge and tucked two tags on it’s ends.
