Instructions: Click here to more photos for this project. Take 1 piece of the Brown Cardstock and cut it at 6 x 6 inches, this is the bottom of your album, make 4 strips of Brown cardstock : 2 1/4 x 6", 2 1/2 x 6", 2 3/4 x 6", 3 x 6". Score them on both long sides 1/2 inch in, fold them and put tape on 1 side of both flaps, do this on all 4 pieces. Take 1 cardstock and score it in half, turn it and score it in half again, now you have for squares on your paper. Take your ruler and cutting knife and cut in one of the scor lines till the center, cut on both sides of the scor lines so the opening is around 1/8 of an inch, do this with all 4 of the papers. Place your 6 x 6" paper in front of you on the table and tape the 2 1/4 x 6" strip on the upper part, tape it on the back, then the next strip of 2 1/2 x 6" goes on the right side, the 2 3/4 x 6" goes on the bottom part and the last one 3 x 6" goes on the left. Take your big sheets with the slit in it and tape them down on the flaps you just placed, tape the squares on the left side of the cutting!!! (I will place a photo on my blog), do this with all of the sheets. Fold all the pages in half and then double, now you can fold them in your book, start with the top one, this has the smallest spine, then the right side one then the bottom and then at last the left side.Take a ribbon and tape it on the front and back of the album. Now you can cover all of the cardstock in your album with design papers, front and backs, also the front and back of the album.
So, with all the new labels, tags, arrows and corner dies of this special launch you can decorate your album, I also put some white cardstock in it for photos but you can place photos anywhere you want! Stamp also some quotes with the new stamp sets! The album has place for 33 photos. On the front you put a strip of the paper collection, off center, then on both sides of that strip glue 2 other strips from the paper, on the left strip you can glue a silver decoration strip, then cut out a label with a new die and the paper collection and glue this half on top of the strips, also 2 corners of that paper with the new corner die, and cut a new tag also from the paper, pull a ribbon through and bind it with a thread.
Stamp the Flowers and leaves from the Oakberry Lane Blossom stamp using the Sweet Plum on white cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die, then color the centers of the flowers with Buttercup and the rest of the flower with LuLu lavender, then the edges with Majestic Violet. The leaves you color with a mix of the greens and a little bit of the Rich Cocoa. Then put 1 layer of flowers in the 3D mold and spray them with a mist of water then add another layer of flowers and leaves and do the same, you can put 3 layers in the mold, now run them through your machine, place the flowers on your mat and press in the center so the flowers will pop up. Make holes in the centers and pull some flower stamens through, now put some glue on the flower with a sponge or glue bottle this is easy because of the fine tip, then sprinkle some shard glass in it. Place the flowers on the front of your album in a nice arrangement.
Stamp the Squirrels you like with the Black Ink and color them with Rich Cocoa and Toffee Crunch, take your Blender marker and color the little flowers with Cactus Flower. Cut them out with the coordinating dies and place them in between your flowers on the cover of your book.
