Our Crafters Say:

"The products are amazing! I love that I can buy a collection and make so many different projects with it - from cards to albums to scrapbook pages and even more. I love their online classes. I learn so much with each class that I take. Once I purchase a class it is in my video library and I can watch it over and over again as many times as I want." - Christine Braun

 "I simply love the beautiful products I get from this company! Everything is of good quality and the papers couldn’t be prettier! Shipping is quick (ok, when you’re waiting for an order it SEEMS slow), and support is exceptional!" -Teena Schaefer

Let's get crafting!


Step 1: To make the base, use 3 of the 6” x  6” Round Bi-Fold cards and open them. Place them on a flat surface, two card bases vertical and one card base horizontal. Adhere the last fold from left vertical card base to the right fold of the horizontal base and repeat this on the right side.

Now this becomes a continuous card base which can be folded in flip and fold way.

Step 2: Using the Rounded Window Frame dies and the Basic Circle dies, cut from white card stock for the inside and the cover.

Step 3: Using outer circle die from Rounded Sunlit Window die, cut 14 circles from the Cottage Garden paper collection and adhere to the back and front of the card bases. Adhere the die cut frames on the inside of the card folds. 

Step 4: Stamp the images and hydrangea flowers from Fresh Cut Hydrangea cling stamp and Cottage Garden Hydrangea cling stamp, with Archival inks and cut with coordinating dies. 

Step 5: Colour the stamped images with Archival inks using sponge daubers. Adhere them on the inside of the card bases. Cut tags and sentiments from card base and add to the inside of the card.

Colour the flowers with Archival inks and shape them in the 3D flower shaping mold.

Step 6: Make the cover by adhereing the die cuts from the Rounded Frame dies and add the stamped and coloured hydrangea image on top. Add the shaped hydrangea flowers on the image using clear glue.

Add the prills in the centres. Add sentiments cut from the paper collection.

Step 7: Cut out the circle shaped photographs using the basic circle dies and adhere inside the rounded frame die cuts.

Step 8: Finish the card  by adhering the cover on the front side of the card base on the vertical left side. Close the photo book in mountain and valley style.
