Follow Emma's video to construct the album here.

Instructions: Align the designer edge from Fleur Border Basic Die for the edge and Eyelet Oval for the window. You will need to cut two pieces back to back, so the front and back page align.

Cut 10 pieces of black cardstock to 2" x 7". Die cut the edge using the Eyelet Fleur Border, making sure they all align as you will be using this same wave for the designer paper. Using red tacky tape adhere a black cardstock border on the front and one on the back of each page, along the right edge of all the pages. Make sure these all align, including cover and the back page. This will extend all the pages and make more space for creating scenes and holding photos. 

Choose the scenic pages from the designer paper collection and cut all the pages for the cover, inner pages, and back cover. You will need a total of 10 scenic pages cut at 7" tall and 6 1/2" wide. Use the plain edge of Fluer Basic Borders to cut the right edge. Make sure that each page has a front and back paper and are cut back to back. Also be sure the Border Basic edge is aligned at the same point each time for all the pages. Die cut the ovals to match the existing opening

Die cut a eyelet oval frame using two oval dies from white cardstock and adhere onto front cover. Ink the edges of all the pages and oval frame using Cantaloupe ink along with the daubers.

To decorate the album, stamp and die cut multiple images from Woodsy Wonderland stamp collection, with Black Archival ink on white cardstock. Die cut using their coordinating dies. All the images are painted using Zig Clean Clear Markers. Choose the variety of Zig Colors according to the images to be used on the various pages. Once all the images are ready, Highlight them slightly with Crystal Clear Powder. 

All the trees are stamped using Black Archival ink and painted using distress inks, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint. These are then shaped slightly from the back using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. 

The tiny flowers used to decorate the album are from Wildwood Florals Die. Simply die cut and shaped on deluxe flower shaping kit. Add a flower stamen in the center. 

Die cut several tickets and tags from the designer paper using the Luggage and Tags die. Cut several of the oval tags and several from white cardstock. If you layer a cardstock tag and a oval tag, and another on the back you can create a thick sturdy tag piece. A few of these I matted in white cardstock if I desired.

Wrap twine from along the spine from each page of the album and tie a bow on the top of the spine. Tie 2 tags ( i used the thick multiple layered ones) on the end of the bow hanging down to add an extra accent to the album. 

All the images are layered using Foam tape. The back of the album has a pocket which can hold tags and photo mats. To decorate the back, cut a frame from Eyelet Circle die(doing multiple layers adhered together). Die cut a scenic circle panel.

Watch this video for tips on shaping the sunflowers.

Instructions: Put the 6 x 6" layered cards together to form a mini album. Do not worry about the circle cut outs as we will be covering those with papers.

Take a 8 x 6" sheet of cardstock and score at 4.5", 5.5" and 6.5" to create a flap cover for the mini album. Fold on score lines and on the 4.5" end, cut corners so end resembles an envelope.  Attach long end to back of album and place on album so envelope end folds over front cover. Then attach your magnets, one on flap and one to center of the front cover of the album. 

To make this album more sturdy, I did add black chipboard to front and back and flap. So cut a 12 x 12" piece of black chipboard to fit these sizes. Cover front and back of all pages, front and back of album and front and back of cover flap with papers from Classic Sunflower Collection.

Next, stamp and die cut your sunflowers using Rich Cocoa Memento ink on white cardstock and your classic rose leaves. Color using Distress inks, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge. Mold and shape your leaves and flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, detail with crystal clear. 

On black cardstock die cut your Botanic Window, Festive Holiday die and Delicate Border die. I used the Delicate Border die on the first page to hold some photo mats in place. 

I cut out some A2 panels from the collection and used throughout the album. I kept this album inside pretty simple, but put lots of details on the cover. Add ribbon, trinket pins and gold thread to cover. Detail the sunflowers and leaves with Crystal Clear and dab touches of gold wax. 

You now have a fun way to use the oval or circle layered cards.

Instructions: See here for close up photo of banner. The finished size of this project is 18" (45 cm) each round tree stump is 5 x 5 1/2" (12.5 x 14 cm ). 

Taking the MDF Tree stump kit, adhere the stump ring paper to the MDF or find a neutral design paper to use as a background for the stumps. 

Taking the white cardstock and die cut the circles by taping the two sized circles on the back and die cut at east 6 times for each ring, one for each stump. Adhere together with clear drying glue. When dry apply the Forest Moss distress ink to give the rings a deep green colour. 

Stamp all the embellishments using Coffee Archical ink on white cardstock and die cut. Color using Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Wild Honey, Barn Door, Black Soot, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Faded Jeans, Older Paper, Ground Espresso, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade. Shape leaves with the deluxe flower shaping kit. Cut 6 extra die cuts for all three of the bears to adhere together to make a chip-board.

Shape the flowers. For the sunflower centres, apply a large amount of clear drying glue to the flower centre then the black sand. Press softly on the sand to push it into the glue. Put aside to dry. 

Taking the sentiment stamp from the Sunrise Lily stamp set, stamp this onto the white cardstock and trim the words wanted for each stump round. Ink the edges with the Fired Brick ink. 

Adhere the circle rings to the stumps then the bears. Next step is to arrange and adhere the flowers, leaves, sentiment banners and footprints. Attach the stumps together with the string, leaving extra length string on both ends to be able to attach or hang the project where wanted. 

To finish the project apply stickles to the flowers and anything you would like to high light.

Instructions: Cut the three card borders from kraft cardstock and adhere to the front of each section to later be covered by patterned paper. Die cut 1 lattice piece from the Window Box Elements dies from kraft cardstock, cut it in half and set aside.

Cut a piece of the yellow patterned paper that is 5 x 7" and adhere to the back panel of the card. Cut a piece of the blue patterned paper that is 5 x 7" and use the plain edge border die to cut that top edge. Adhere to the second largest section and trim off any overhang at the bottom.

Cut a piece of the green plaid patterned paper that is 5 x 7" and cut that top edge using the plain edge border die. Adhere to the third largest section and trim off any overhang at the bottom of the card. Add the lattice piece that you set aside to the right hand side of this section.

Cut a piece of the patterned background that is 4 x 7", for this section I decided to trace and cut by hand, so I could get a very specific portion of the pattern. Adhere to the front section of the card. 

Find and die cut the large green tag and the small orange tag. Add burlap string bows and adhere to the back section of the card.

Stamp and die cut 2 straight sunflowers using Early Espresso ink on white cardstock and die cut. I used just the flower top from one. I added colour to the image using Chameleon Pens (YO2, OL3, BR5). Add the flower top on top of the full flower using 3D foam squares. Adhere on top of the lattice piece on the green patterned paper section. Add a brown pearl on the lattice.

Stamp and die cut 2 set of Water Lily images using Early Espresso Ink on white cardstock and die cut. Add colour to make them look like sunflowers. I added colour using inks and daubers. Start with the Fossilized Amber on the flowers, and then I used Walnut Stain on the tips. Shape and assemble your flowers. I added beads to the middles using 3D Crystal Lacquer. 

Stamp and die cut 2 of the leaves from Sunflower Accents using Early Espesso ink on white cardstock and die cut. I added colour using Chameleon Pens (OL3). Shape the leaves. I added the flowers and 1 set of leaves to the bottom left hand corner of the front section of the card. Add brown pearls. 

Die cut the bear and fire from the patterned paper images. Also find and cut out the “Happy Birthday” sentiment, and flag one end. Adhere to the front portion of the card using 3D foam squares. Using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen, add sparkle to the fire image.

For more ways to use the Beary Retreat collection see this video.

Instructions: Visit this link to see the inside pages. Sometimes we have only a short period of time to create a mini album for a quick gift! This project showcases one way of using the fantastic 3D Flip Fold Albums and very flexible uses for the paper even for the very beginner papercrafter! Start by using a opening your E & F inserts and locate the pieces you'll be needing.

Trim off the decorative edge of the Pocket and Flipfold Insert E to make a straight edge on the cover. Assemble and glue the Pocket and Flipfold Insert E with the flipfold waterfall pieces on the inside left side panel. 

Assemble and glue the Pocket and Flipfold Insert F to the inside middle panel. Glue the two extra pieces of the packet and Flipfold Inserts E to the inside of the bottom panel as illustrated. 

Select a total of 14 images from the Beary Fund Retreat paper. For each section of the album cut the paper one quarter inch shorter for width and length to form a border for each section. Glue the cut papers into place throughout the album. 

For the three cards in the Pockets and Flipfold Insert F, die cut the Ornate Borders and Pockets die to cut the decorative border at the top of each card. Cut the base of the cards to stagger the length in the three pockets as illustrated. 

Before placing decorative papers on the front of the album place ribbon to tie the mini album together as an alternate idea to using a magnet to keep album closed!

Really like the mini albums that Rajni and Karan made using the layered oval and circle card kits. Love the hanging tags on Rajni's album. Excited for the Young at Heart release next week - it's totally adorable! Great for masculine themed projects too

"Sweet Picture Frame," by Monica Edwards, has really drawn my attention! Flowers are perfectly matched to designer paper...so well done! I always make my own flowers so I can get this color match. Wonderful use of the perfect ink colors. NICE!

As usual the card ideas are a winner. When I try to print the project, absolutely nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Patty, There are a lot of variables as to why a print button may not work. You can call customer service and they can get more information to try and help solve your problem. Have a wonderful day!

My favorites are: Sunflowers For You, Elegant Border Floral, Frosted Roses and Sunrise Lily Money Holder. I love the flowers on the other cards but I'm not into the little animals.
