Instructions: Cut out of the Grey board 2 pieces 8 x 8" each and 1 piece of 8 x 2". Attach 2 pieces of Lilac cardstock together, lay them flat on the table and get the 2 x 8 piece of the grey board and tape that down in the middle. Then leave a space of 1/8" on both sides of that piece and tape down the other 2 parts on each side. Now cut 3/4" all the way around. Put tape on the Lilac flaps and fold them in so that the grey board is all covered! Now cut 2 pieces of the Lilac cardstock at 8 3/4 x 7 3/4" and glue that in the album to cover the front and back. Now for the binding system you cut a piece 2 3/4 x 7 1/2", a piece of 2 1/4 x 7 1/2" and a piece of 1 3/4 x 7 1/2", score these 3 pieces at 3/4" on each long side and fold it. Now put tape on both sides of the flaps and glue them on top of each other by putting score tape in the middle of each piece start with the bigger one and going smaller. When everything is glued together then glue it on the spine of your album. Cut 6 pieces of white cardstock 8 1/2 x 7 1/2" and score 1/2 inch on each side of the 8 1/2 side. Fold them so then your pieces will measure 7 1/2 x 7 1/2", now put tape on those flaps on all the 6 pages. Cut 6 pieces of white Cardstock 7 1/2 x 7 1/2" and tape them on the other pile you just made so when you've done, you have 6 pages on both sides. Now get the tape on the Lilac flaps and put the white cardstock pages over the lilac flaps, so then you are ending with 6 pages with a pocket on the right side. Now cover the album with paper from the collection, Ink all the edges with the Vintage photo. Make a hole in the spine and put a fastener through and hang the key on it.

Now stamp with Black Tuxedo Ink the Lush Lilac stamp set and the rain Boots and Blossoms stamp set, color all the flowers with the Sweet Plum, Rose Bud, Lulu Lavender and the leaves with bamboo Leaves, cut them all out with the coordinating dies, and shape them with the Deluxe shaping set, make holes in all the small lilac flowers, cut the stamens in half and put a stamen in all of the flowers. Start on the left upper corner with a nice bow and then make a nice arrangement of all your flowers on the cover of your album.

Cut out the Birdcage with the die from creme cardstock, cover it with the Versa mark Ink then put some Silver Embossing powder on top and melt it with the heat tool. Cut a piece of Acetate and glue this behind your Birdcage, cut a bird from the paper collection and glue this on your album then on top you can glue the Birdcage - glue only the corners and bend it a little bit so that it is round, put a brad on top of it, cut a saying from the paper collection and bend it and glue it down. Put also some leftover flowers on the corner of the cage. Put some nice stickers on the corner of your album.
