Follow Emma's video to construct the album here.
Instructions: Align the designer edge from Fleur Border Basic Die for the edge and Eyelet Oval for the window. You will need to cut two pieces back to back, so the front and back page align.
Cut 10 pieces of black cardstock to 2" x 7". Die cut the edge using the Eyelet Fleur Border, making sure they all align as you will be using this same wave for the designer paper. Using red tacky tape adhere a black cardstock border on the front and one on the back of each page, along the right edge of all the pages. Make sure these all align, including cover and the back page. This will extend all the pages and make more space for creating scenes and holding photos.
Choose the scenic pages from the designer paper collection and cut all the pages for the cover, inner pages, and back cover. You will need a total of 10 scenic pages cut at 7" tall and 6 1/2" wide. Use the plain edge of Fluer Basic Borders to cut the right edge. Make sure that each page has a front and back paper and are cut back to back. Also be sure the Border Basic edge is aligned at the same point each time for all the pages. Die cut the ovals to match the existing opening
Die cut a eyelet oval frame using two oval dies from white cardstock and adhere onto front cover. Ink the edges of all the pages and oval frame using Cantaloupe ink along with the daubers.
To decorate the album, stamp and die cut multiple images from Woodsy Wonderland stamp collection, with Black Archival ink on white cardstock. Die cut using their coordinating dies. All the images are painted using Zig Clean Clear Markers. Choose the variety of Zig Colors according to the images to be used on the various pages. Once all the images are ready, Highlight them slightly with Crystal Clear Powder.
All the trees are stamped using Black Archival ink and painted using distress inks, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint. These are then shaped slightly from the back using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
The tiny flowers used to decorate the album are from Wildwood Florals Die. Simply die cut and shaped on deluxe flower shaping kit. Add a flower stamen in the center.
Die cut several tickets and tags from the designer paper using the Luggage and Tags die. Cut several of the oval tags and several from white cardstock. If you layer a cardstock tag and a oval tag, and another on the back you can create a thick sturdy tag piece. A few of these I matted in white cardstock if I desired.
Wrap twine from along the spine from each page of the album and tie a bow on the top of the spine. Tie 2 tags ( i used the thick multiple layered ones) on the end of the bow hanging down to add an extra accent to the album.
All the images are layered using Foam tape. The back of the album has a pocket which can hold tags and photo mats. To decorate the back, cut a frame from Eyelet Circle die(doing multiple layers adhered together). Die cut a scenic circle panel.
