Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this project. Choose what paper collection you are going to be using, cut all the paper down to the correct size for each page but do not adhere yet.

On the smaller fold out 5 1/4 x 4 1/4", using the HCD1-7211 Decorative Pocket Accents Die, take the small straight die and place it on your trimmed paper piece, run this through the die cutting machine, apply glue to the four sides and adhere to the book. Using white cardstock and the larger die run that through your machine, glue around the opening and place on top of the small slit you made earlier. You can now slide your picture in and out. You will do this for all others like this when used. On the side panel, adhere the paper of your choice. Using HCD1-7213 Elegant Pocket Accents die, cut the bottom part out with Kraft cardstock and the upper part out of white cardstock. Glue around the lower part and adhere to the page. This will be a pocket and you can slide your picture in. On the bottom page, adhere your paper, cut 2 (of the smaller ones) using the Elegant Pocket Accents dies again, adhere your paper, place the corner pieces to the bottom so you can slide a picture in and out.

For the 2 top panels, adhere the paper, cut the Oval Frame out of white along with the HCD1-7204 Arrows and Banner die, stamp the sentiment adhere to the page. On the very top, cut that frame out of Kraft, use the center of the die and cut the picture out, adhere to the page.

For the page on the far left, die cut out of white, adhere paper to the page, glue the bottom on the die cut and slide your picture in. For the middle part, add your paper, use one of the largest film strips, add pictures to the back and adhere to the panel. The middle part is another film strip only it's the smallest one, cut 4 of the Sweetheart border die out of white cardstock, adhere to the back side of the film strip, locate the squares on the tag page, cut out, round the corners and adhere to the filmstrip.

On the next to last panel the top one is a pocket, cut 2 more of the Sweetheart border dies from white cardstock and adhere to the back of the paper you choose, adhere to the pocket. The bottom part of that one cut another one of the Elegant Pocket Accents as you did for the first and adhere your paper then the pocket and picture. Add a 1 inch strip to the book where the bind is.

For the last panel you see, cut 3 of the Decorative Pocket Accents strips, spacing these a few inches apart to make it easier to slide your pictures in and out, for the top part cut 6 out, one for the top and one for the bottom as shown, adhere to the panel. Use the Ticket and Tags die and die cut 3 of the printed tags out, slide those in.

To finish this scrap book, the opportunities are endless on the things you can add. Flowers, more die cuts, glitter, it's totally up to you. Have fun!!!
