Decide before you start cutting if you want to album to be horizontal or vertical. Stager the prints, and then cut the album out of the Echo Park Be Mine paper pack using the Sizzix Album, Layered Bracket die.

2. To get the fourth page in the album (as there are only three pages in the die), choose a paper and cut out another of the longest pages.  Cut ½" off from the end to make it measure up with the other pages.

3. Once all the pages are cut, ink the edges with the Black Soot Distress Ink. Take the We R Memory Keepers Seweasy Piercer Tool and go all along the edges of the pages except page 3.  Alternate the floss color depending on which color coordinates with the paper prints.

4. Individual page instructions as follows:

Page 1: 
Using the Storybook Cricut Cartridge and the SEI Velvet Paper, cut "LOVE" in size 2 ½" (pressure high, needle 6). 
Take your Basic Grey Bling It On Rub-On and place it in the bottom left corner. Glue "LOVE" letters on top and add the rub on jewels.

Page 2: 
Cut the Sizzix Ornamental die with printed paper, and ink the edges with the Rose Bud Distress Ink. Glue the Ornamental cut out on the left side of the album page. Using the grey cardstock and the Sizzix Frame, Scallop w/Eyelets, cut out two ovals.  Stitch the hot pink floss through the puncture holes. Once both are stitched, line them up on top of each other and stitch them to each other on the top three stitches. This can be a little hidden place to write a message or journal entry. Attach piece to the top right corner of the album page. Place "Best Friends" stickers on top of the Frame. 

Page 3: 

Cut the Sizzix Baroque die with printed paper and mount on the Pink Iris Shimmer Sheet. Cut both shapes out. Cut a 3" piece off of the Just the Edge embellishment and glue to left side of the album page. Glue the Baroque shape on top on a slight tilt (left corner down). Along the bottom left side of the album page, attach various sticker embellishments from the Be Mine paper pack (the postage stamp, ticket stickers, etc.). Attach a pink flower with a button in the center. Place the postage journal sticker on right side of album page on a tilt and cut off the extra. 

Page 4: 

Attach the “Carte Postal” sticker on the top right side of the album page on a tilt, cutting off any extra. At the bottom of the page, attach the sticker letters "WHY", "I",  and the “ love you” sticker. Cut skinny stripes of paper and glue to the album page as your journal space. Place the “I ADORE YOU" sticker at the bottom of the page, gluing two buttons on the sides. 


5. Take the In Stitch'z Floss & Needles and stitch the book together through the holes at the binding. Take the Bazzill Modern Avalanche Buttons and glue them over the stitch marks (see Page 1 image).
