Watch the video to see how to shape the Delightful Daisies

Instructions: Follow the Hidden Hinge Binding video tutorial here to create the hidden hinge binding. Follow the tutorial here to find directions for making the cover. Make your cover from medium weight chipboard cut to measure 18 3/4" x 5 3/8". Score on the long side, 8" in from each side and gently fold at the score line to create the spine for your album. Cut a 22" x 8" piece of white burlap and cover the album as shown in the cover video. Use the paisley paper to line the inside of the album. Add the metal corners.

For the hinge: Cut your cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5" and assemble as shown in the video. Cut a 4 5/8" x 7" strip of handmade paper and line the spine of your cover as shown in the video. Punch 3 evenly spaced holes in the spine and insert the copper brads, as shown. Use Scor-Tape to insert the hinged binding into the album, as shown in the video.

Decorating the cover: I used the lace border die cut from gold metallic cardstock and layered it up with a framed card front and real peacock feathers. Stamp several sets of Delightful Daisies using all three colors of the Distress Ink. Heat Emboss, shape, paint with Distress Crackle paint and use throughout the album. Decorate your album cover as desired.

To Create the Inner Pages: Cut FOUR 7 1/2" x 5" rectangles from a corrugate cereal box (or use medium weight chipboard). Cut ONE 7 1/2" x 3 3/4" rectangle from the box. Sand the edges of the cereal box and then paint with Peacock Feathers Distress Paint. Tap the edges with Viva Décor Copper Stamp Paint. Once the pages are decorated, insert into the prepared hinge, following the instructions in the videos.

Cut TEN Night of Navy rectangles: 7" x 4". Cut SIX Night of Navy Rectangles: 7" x 3 1/4". Cut TEN White Parchment Rectangles: 6 3/4" x 3 3/4". Cut TEN tags from Pool Party Cardstock using the Luggage and Tags die. Die cut TWELVE photo mount panels using the 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" die from Cut, Mat, Create 2-B.

To create the pocket pages, cut a thumb hole in either the top or the side of one of your prepared panels. Glue onto your base panel so that one edge is left open on either the top, left or right hand side. Insert tags or photo mounts into the opening.

For the flip pages: Use three of the 7" x 3 1/4” Night of Navy Rectangles to form flip pages. On the long side, score one panel at 6 1/2". Score the next panel at 6". Leave the third panel as is. Fold the rectangles along the score line and tuck each tab underneath the unscored panel, gluing them in place. Use the punch to create thumb holes on the right hand side of the first two panels. Decorate the edges with strips of paper from the collection. Glue onto the 7 1/2" x 3 3/4" corrugate panel.

For the fold out pages: Score one of the 7" x 4" Night of Navy panels at 6 1/2". Fold along the score, and tuck the tab under the right hand side of another Night of Navy panel. Glue in place. Cut a thumb hole on the right hand side of your designer paper or stamped image and glue the top, bottom and left hand side onto the top Navy panel. Insert a journaling tag into the pocket. Add a matted border strip on the left. Open the navy panel and glue the white parchment panels inside the fold out page, and stamp as desired. Insert into the prepared album as shown.
