Instructions: Click here for more photos of this project. Book size is 12 x 12". Paint all edges of book and pages and film strips with white acrylic paint. Cover front and sides and pages with decorative lilac paper. Ink edges with purple ink. Die cut Decorative Pocket dies (several of each) from white card stock (some will be used inside). Die cut 4 Sweetheart Borders,1 bird cage and 4 corners from Petite Pocket Accents for the cover. Glue corners to the 4 corners (while closed), glue six 1 1/2" square photos to the back side of small film strip, glue 2 Sweetheart Borders to right side and then glue the strip to left side of cover (about 3" from left edge). Glue the other 2 Sweetheart Borders to the right side of cover between corners.
Stamp, die cut and sponge Lilac Flowers, leaves, scroll, and birds (birds are colored with Copic Markers). Arrange a "swirled" arrangement of the scroll and lilac flowers up left side of cover, add leaves as needed. Add Prills to centers of flowers and glitter to petals. Extend swirl with the pearl swirls. Add a bow to top of scroll. Glue flowers, leaves and birds (birds are popped up) to right top of cover and add a bow. Add pearl swirls starting at the bottom of right side and moving up 2/3 of cover. Use foam tape or some other pop up to pop cage up actually bowing it slightly by bringing edges closer together than intended. Add a line of pearls top and bottom. Glue closure to left and right side and glue clipped brads to holes to look like nails. Tie a ribbon around binding at left side and add a tag plus charms (or beads if desired).
Inside left side and bottom right side: Die cut (2 together) large Ornate Pockets to form a square in the center for a photo (approximately 3 1/4" square). Cut 2 of the straight pierced corner pieces to border photo. Die cut Decorative Pockets and Elegant Pockets (Elegant Pockets for when flap is closed, Decorative Pocket for tags when flap is open. (because my paper was already on my album, I used an Xacto knife to create an opening for the tags being careful not to press too hard so as not to go through album but just through the paper. When flap is closed, glue a plain white mat for photo and glue Elegant dies top and bottom.
Stamp, die cut and sponge Oakberry Lane Blossoms using Majestic Violet. Use 3D shaping mold to shape, misting blossom (each layer if doing a lot) and then let dry. Press each in the center and form flowers by adding layers of blossoms together. Add Prills to the centers. Glue flowers to top and bottom of left side, add left over leaves and some stamen to complete mini arrangements.
Cut 2 tags using Tickets and Tags Die, add ribbon to the top of each and insert into pocket (flap open on this part). On the right side, bottom of album glue a border from Lush Lilac paper to top (of bottom flap), make a title and comment on the computer and print out on vellum. Tear edges of vellum and chalk edges. Sponge adhesive around top of flap and glitter. Stamp, die cut and color Singing in the rain fairy using Copic Markers (or your favorite coloring system). Pop up fairy on left side of flap next to title. Glue 2 corners from Elegant Pockets cut from white.
