  1. Cover front and back of the album with book pages using Adhesive Sheets per manufacturer’s instructions. Adhere one sheet to each side and split the other sheet in half to finish each side.
  2. Apply a light coat of Snow acrylic paint to the album to create a white washed effect. Add water to thin the paint as desired consistency.
  3. Holding the Colorbox® Archival Dye Inkpad Fireberry in your hand, pounce it around the edges of the album. Including the cut handle and back cover. Let dry, apply ColorBox® Fluid Chalk® inkpad: Dark Peony in the same manner.
  4. Fold up album, place into Color Catcher® front cover up, lay paper doily on the cover so the lace part is on the corners of the album. Spray Smooch Spritz® Tea Party, let dry, remove doily.
  5. Apply Design Adhesives French Swirl© to the top left corner of your album cover and another one on the bottom right as shown, apply Designer Foils Plum Crazy to adhesive following manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Lay Natural cardstock piece down on an adhesive sheet. Do not burnish, simply peel cardstock from the adhesive so that the adhesive sheet applies brokenly to the cardstock. Apply Designer Foils Silver Fog to adhesive (per manufacturer’s instruction). This will create a broken layer of foil on the cardstock.
  7. Ink white oval tip with Colorbox® Fluid Chalk® Deep Lagoon and apply color (buff and float, do not rub) to the edges of the foiled cardstock piece. Let dry.
  8. Place cardstock piece into Color Catcher®; spray Smooch Spritz® Sea Kiss over the piece then blend it in with a paper towel. Let dry. Adhere embellished cardstock to the front of album with adhesive sheet.
  9. Apply Design Adhesives French Swirl© to bottom left side of the album, half on the album and the cardstock as shown; apply Designer Foils Plum Crazy to adhesive (following manufacturer’s instructions).
  10. Use Crafty Power Tape to adhere 5 inch piece of lace as shown across bottom of cardstock piece. Apply another strip of Crafty Power tape down the middle of the lace than sprinkle Honey Glow glitter. Tap off excess.
  11. Layer two small flowers, insert metallic brad through middle of paper flowers; set brad and adhere to left side of the lace strip with 3D foam square. Use alpha stickers mounted on 3D Foam Squares to spell “Create” as shown.
