Let's get crafting!
Step 1: Cut 3 pieces of blue card stock in the following sizes. Cut one piece to 6 x 12", Cut three pieces 5 3/4 x 12" and one piece 5 x 12" and 4 pieces 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 ".
Step 2: Using a scoring board, score the pieces of card in the following way. a) On the 6 x 12" piece, score on longer side at 2 3/4" and 3" and at 9 1/4".
b) Score all of the 3 pieces of card that are 5 3/4 x 12" at 3" and 9" on the longer side.
C) Score the piece of card 5" x12" at 5" and 8 1/2".
Step 3: Fold the flaps of the 3 pieces of 5 3/4 x 12" card stock along the score lines. Now place them side by side and adhere the two middle flaps together.
Step 4: Fold in the attached flaps. Fold the 6 inches by 12 inches along the score lines. Adhere the folded flap book right in the middle of the bigger piece.
Step 5: Score the 5 " by 12 " piece at 5" and 8 1/2 " on the longer side. Make a mountain and valley fold so that you get piece like Z fold card. This will be adhered later in the inside in the middle panel. It opens like an extension where you can put extra photos.
Step 6: Cut pattern paper according to the size of each page and flap, leaving a little border all around. Use the 6 inch card panels and other printed tags and journal pieces printed in the Tender Moments Paper Collection. Adhere the Z fold piece to the center.
Adhere the square pieces on the left and right flaps.
Step 7: Attach organza ribbon at the back bringing it in front. Then add the front cover and back cover using the other two square pieces.
Step 8: Stamp and colour the baby animals and rose flowers from the Welcome Baby and Baby’s Friends Cling Stamp Sets with zig markers and cut with matching die. Use the small size circle die from Eyelet basics and small circle die to cut many circles. Distress with Broken China Distress oxide ink and adhere the baby animals. Decorate the album inside with these tags and other cut outs.
Step 9: Step 9: Use the Decorative Pocket Accents Die to cut beautiful accents from white cardstock to decorate the inside pages.
Step 10: Stamp the Small Wild Rose flowers and the leaves from the Large Wild Rose Cling Stamp Set on vellum paper with embossing ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat set. Colour with Archival Forget me not and Leaf green inks. Shape in the 3D flower shaping mold. Add stamens to the flowers.
Decorate the cover of the album using the vellum flowers, leaves, "BABY BOY", rose images, baby animal images and a circle frame cut from the Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die.
