Instructions: Click here to view the inside of the album. Start by taking a white Flip Fold Insert E. For the basic first layer cover of the album, cut pattern paper from the paper collection 1/8" smaller than the base of the album. Repeat the same for the inside folds also. For this album all the pattern papers are matted on a black cardstock. For the waterfall repeat the same, die cut sweetheart borders and add to all the edges.
Die cut several pieces of border from border die using white cardstock. This is used as a bellyband for the inside of the album to hold journaling cards, photographs, message, etc. For the message and journaling card, all are matted with black cardstock.
Die cut several nesting hearts from the Eyelet Hearts Die using some pink pattern paper from the Heartfelt Love designer paper and stamp with the sentiment as shown on the card. Die cut more harts to create a frame, adhere all the hearts together with Dries Clear Adhesive and back with acetate heart which will form a shaker. Leave a small opening and fill the shaker with some sequins. This will form one of the elements of the Bellyband for the mini album.
A bellyband is used as a closure for the mini album which is created using parchment paper. To embellish the bellyband, stamp and die cut some Dogwood flowers along with Classic Rose Leaf. Using Plum and Vermillion Archival ink, color the leaves and flower petals. Once all are colored each one of them are shaped and stamens are added for the centers. The flowers and leaves are also sponged with dries clear adhesive and dusted with some Crystal Clear. The flowers, shaker hearts along with some stamped images form the cluster to adorn the closure.
The album flap is also adhered with a series of regal borders to add the final touch to the mini album.
