Black Friday Release with Heartfelt Creations...

Hello Everyone!
Happy Black Friday!
I'm here today with a special Heartfelt Creations post!
I hope you were able to take in the first ever live stream with Emma Lou today!
What do you think of the new 3D Flip Fold Album and Dies Collections?
I have to say that I found this album absolutely delightful to work with, and is perfect for crafters of all experience levels!

Well, first let me apologize for how picture heavy this post will be!
I won't take you on a full tour of the album with a pictorial as I have included a video link below that will walk you through the entire creation.  

Let's begin...

I chose to use the Classic Sunflower Collection to create this remains one of my favorite collections to this day!  I paired it with the kraft colored album and flip fold/pocket inserts....

I decided not to cover the spine with paper but to rather add some dangling charms on twine to give the album a country feeling...

This is the inside front cover and first page...
(you can find the instructions for the inside cover and front page at the end of this blog post)

...moving along, let's take a tour of a few more pages... you can see I added some fun clips to the pages along the way...

...this next page is one of my has a long flip fold that I simply was not able to capture on a still be sure to check out the video to see how this gorgeous addition turned out...
...I love the rusty safety pins used instead of ribbon on the tags in the pocket...

...a simple pocket that holds several photo/journaling mats clipped together with a denim clothes pin...and of course a super cool flip fold with additional pockets...

...another side flip fold along with a large pocket with magnetic closure on the opposite page...
...and how about that beautiful decorative die cut that frames the top of the large pocket...

...and last but not least, the final page and inside back cover...

For a full video tour, be sure to check out my YouTube channel where I run through each and every flip fold in detail.  (My apologies as the video has a bit of poor lighting and I definitely am not a professional videographer!  LOL)

I do hope you stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog to see the other amazing albums the rest of the uber talented design team have created!  It's super exciting to see what everyone came up with!

Until next time...

Before I begin with the instructions for the pages shown, please allow me a brief moment to give all of you timid album makers out there a wonderful testimonial.  This 3D flip fold album has been a delight to work with.  The addition of the flip folds/pockets is quick and easy, and because you are the designer, the combinations are endless and allow you to make this project as simple or complex as you choose.  Not having to construct the album itself from scratch, and simply being able to head into the creative part of decorating has been wonderful!  Heartfelt Creations has made this simple and easy for crafters of all levels to enjoy!

Using the paper collection of your choice, trim the paper to the size you desire for the front inside cover along with a piece for the first page.  Ink all edges using a brown colored ink, along with all edges of the cover and first page.  Adhere to book using a strong adhesive such as scor tape.  Locate the pocket shown on the inside of the front cover from Flip Fold and Pocket Inserts Package A, and ink all edges.  Measure paper to cover the pocket using a paper of your choice, adding a second coordinating paper slightly smaller across the centre of the pocket.  Die cut a decorative piece using the scalloped and dotted edged die in the Ornate Borders and Pocket Dies.  Ink all edges of all pocket pieces using a brown ink.  Adhere to pocket, and then adhere pocket to cover as shown.  Locate the flip fold pocket shown on the first page within the Flip Fold and Pocket Inserts Package C.  Decide on paper combinations to cover the flip fold pocket, measure and trim decorative paper and ink all edges including the edges of the pocket itself.  Adhere magnet to pocket and then complete covering the pocket with decorative papers.  Add border trim to inside of pocket.  Locate a decorative strip from within the paper collection to use to cover the centre of the inside spine.  Ink using a brown colored ink and apply to album.  Create photo/journaling inserts using the premade card panels of your choice within your paper collection.  Die cut tag toppers for each from kraft card stock.  Ink all edges of card panels and tag toppers.  Adhere tag toppers to backside of card panel.  Using white card stock, cut a mat slightly larger than your card panel to adhere to the back.  Ink all edges and adhere to back of photo/journaling tag.  Create some dimensional flowers using your flower of choice, along with a spritz of water and the deluxe flower shaping kit.  Adhere to tag toppers.
