Materials:

  • Chipboard Album
  • Tape Adhesive
  • Liquid Adhesive or hot glue
  • Trimmer
  • Edge Punch
  • Chalk Ink Edgers
  • Almanac Collection Papers from Prima
  • Almanac Chipboard Embellishments from Prima
  • Ledger Paper Pad from Prima
  • Romance Novel Journaling Cards from Prima
  • Bel Canto Brown Flowers from Prima
  • Spotlight C Flowers from Prima
  • Namazzi Flowers from Prima
  • Almanac Roses Flowers from Prima
  • Gilded Leaves Gold Flowers from Prima
  • Aglow Gold Flowers from Prima
  • Almanac Vintage Trinkets

  • Ingvild Bolme Typo Bulbs

Instructions:

  1. Cover the album sheets with the Ledger paper. Be sure to cover each sheet completely on each side and punch the desired holes on each sheet.
     
  2. Once you cover the album sheets, begin inking the edges with your favorite chalk ink. Brown or darker colors work best.
     
  3. Begin decorating the cover layering the flowers from the center to the edges. Add a resin embellishment or any centerpiece embellishment such as the typo bulbs and chipboard piece or any vintage trinkets you might have.
     
  4. Take some journaling cards and start adhering them throughout the album making sure that you only glue top and sides to turn them into pockets. Take Almanac papers and cut them down to make pockets. Use your edge punch to give it a decorative border and adhere it down throughout the album to make more pockets.
     
  5. Make it your own. The album should be unique to you. Take some 6x6 squares of the Almanac patterned paper and cut them into two triangles. Punch the longer edge and use them as pockets by adhering them down. Embellish the album throughout with trinkets, flowers and rhinestone swirls.
     
  6. Out of the packaging and using a circle punch create some tags. Punch out circles and make holes in them. Tie some string and insert them into the pockets.
     
  7. Optional: Add some ribbon to the rings to give it a finished look and some trinkets and keys as well.
