Memories Flip Fold Album

Hi everyone, a couple of weeks ago I posted some photos of an album I was working on using the new Flip Fold albums and inserts from Heartfelt Creations and today I get to share with you the finished project.  I used the Arianna Blooms paper collection.

It's so easy to make an interactive album with the Flip Fold inserts and pockets, no more spending hours and hours figuring out the engineering of the project, instead you get to go directly to the decorating and embellishing.
I made the flowers with the Arianna Blooms stamps and coordinating dies.
As you can see, lots of pockets and inserts for all your photos.
Hope you enjoyed my album and thank you for your visit.

Finished size of album is 7” x 9”.  Start by choosing you favorite flip fold inserts and pockets, adhere to desired placement on pages.  Cover your pages, flip folds and pockets with patterned paper making sure to adhere the magnets under your patterned paper.  Use the border dies to create decorative borders for your pocket inserts, photo mats, and journaling tags.  Add lace trim, ribbon and pearls to decorate the pages.  Stamp the Arianna Blooms flowers on white cardstock with pink ink and cut with coordinating dies, shade with pink distress ink and shape.  Cut several small leafy swirls large one from green cardstock.  Add flowers and small leafy swirls to some of the pages.  Cover the front and back covers with patterned paper, use a coordinating pattern for the spine.  Add lace trim, cut a circle image from patterned paper, mat with white cardstock, adhere to cover with foam dots.  Add flowers, leafy swirls, lace diecut.  Adhere “Memories” banner.  Add ribbon bow.  Add pearl pins and adhesive pearls.  For the spine adhere a small image from the patterned paper to the decorative frame, adhere frame to spine. Add chain with beads.  Add adhesive pearls.  Add Stickles to the flowers and some of the background images on the front cover.  Fill the center of the decorative heart frame on the spine with diamond glaze.
