love lives here *Heartfelt Creations*

This started with an Accordion Kit by 7 Gypsies. I tore it apart twice and threw out the instructions before I finally got it going the way I wanted.

I used Weekend Market papers by BoBunny. "Love lives here", the circular stamped sentiment, frame die cut, leaves and swirls, butterflies, and flower are all Heartfelt Creations. I used a Making Memories hole punch tool to punch the hole on the right and install a WRMK eyelet. The brown trim is by American Crafts.

I used Tattered Blossoms stamps and dies to make this flower. I finished it with Stickles and a BoBunny brad.

I just love these stamp and die butterflies from Garden Romance!

Inside the front cover. I used brown acrylic paint to stamp the inside. This stamp is from the Old English Garden Collection.

Here, I just did an arrangement of fun paper, lace, and a binder clip.

Open accordion. The tape is from Tim Holtz.

A corner die cut with a key and folder tucked inside.

On the flip side. After die cutting all those Tattered Blossoms, I used the negative as a stencil for glimmer misting. I used brown acrylic paint to stamp the script. The ephemera is from a Tim Holtz sticker book.

The back.

Just in case you didn't see the front.

1. Glue two of the prefolded cardboard pieces together to create an accordion. For the cover, add two more score lines .25" on each side of existing center score line. Cover all sides with paper, finish with tape. Ink the edges. Punch holes in the cover and set large eyelets. Thread the ribbon and secure. Glue the accordion to the inside right of the cover.
2. Decorate the front with handmade flowers, leaves, flourishes, stamped sentiments, butterflies, and frame cuts.
3. Decorate the inside pages with stamping, die cuts, sentiments, and photos.

I did a similar album with the July ScrapThat! Kit. I give a little tour of the album here in this video.
