Step by Step Mini Album Part 1

Hi There!
 
Shell here today with the first instalment on how I put together my Wedding Mini Album. This album is pretty basic & not suitable for lots of layers but I still have lots of dimension, journaling & a collection of photos throughout the pages!
 
Here is the front cover again
 
Part 1 The Album Body
1. Using cardstock (I used Kaisercraft Vanilla) Cut in half so you have 2 pieces 6"X12"
2. Score each card at 8" & fold.
3. Place tape on the outside of the 4" flap on both pieces. Stick the 4" flaps together
4. Repeat steps 1 & 2
5. Place tape on the outside of the front 8" flap & adhere to the back of the 8" flap on the first piece.
6. Cut a piece 8"X6" from Prima Something Blue Reception paper. Adhere to the front of the album.
7. From Prima Something Blue Enchanted Bloom paper cut a piece 6"x4" This piece is used as the binding for the album. Adhere so that it over laps both the front & back cover 2" either side.
8. Using a sewing machine stitch along the right edge of the Enchanted Bloom paper
9. Fussy Cut a bunch of roses from the Enchanted Bloom paper. Stamp a flower with brown ink from the Flair Buttons pack onto a Manilla tag.
10. Adhere the tag on the left side & the roses to the right
11. Attach the forever typewriter paper clip to a black Something Blue tag. Adhere to the centre of the tag & roses.
12. Fussy Cut the top right journal box from the Just Married paper. Stitch a double border around the edge. Adhere with foam tape over the top of the tags & roses
13. From Vellum paper die cut a doily. Adhere to the left side of the journal box. Using foam tape adhere a Crate Paper frame to the bottom left corner of the journal box. Adhere the scallop doily from the chipboard pack to the bottom right corner of the frame. Adhere the bicycle flair button on top of the scallop doily & frame.
14. With foam tape adhere the happily ever after tag on top of the vellum doily. Cut 2 pieces 2.5"X0.5" . Cut a V at the bottom to make a pendant. Adhere a Doodle Bug Sprinkle in Lily White to the bottom of each piece. Adhere under the vellum doily.
15. Punch a heart from some vellum paper, stitch along the centre & place a Doodle Bug Lily White Sprinkle. Adhere the Wedding Day shabby chic resin above the chipboard scallop doily. Adhere a resin cherub to the left of the chipboard doily. Using American Crafts thickers adhere the year date in the bottom right corner.

A Full product list will be provided at the end of the tutorial!
