The 8 X 8 Insta-Album has all paper sizes on the pages for you so cut all the coordinating paper for the entire album.  Before gluing any paper in, glue all the magnets to designated spots and also decide where you want pockets to be so that you can cut the slots in the paper before gluing to the book. If you decide later that you want a pocket where you have already glued your paper you can still do it, it’s just much harder as you will have to use a blade to cut just the paper not the page where the pocket will go.  The pockets on these new dies have different slot opening shapes you can choose which is fun but just remember if you will be taking photos all the way in and out it might be best to just use the straight edge so that nothing gets bent putting it back in over and over.  The mats and pockets are all cut with kraft and pink cardstock.

The cover: Glue Tulip decorative paper down and cut kraft Lacy Diamond, pink eyelet diamond and photo with Basics Diamond.  Cut the Elegant Pocket Accents using kraft and pink background for top and bottom for the left side.  Also cut a piece of Jute/pearl trim to size.  For the right side of cover cut another piece of trim and 2 corners from the Elegant Pocket Accents from kraft  with pink background.  Stamp and color a pot and Tulips as well (stamp using Desert Sand and color with Copic Markers).  Pop up the pot and flowers.

Inside Cover, left side has the small pocket (Regal Pocket Accents) with the ornate topper cut from kraft.  Mat photo with pink and kraft. Open the flap just decorated and cut the Fanci-Fold pocket for the bottom panel, cut 2 corners for the top panel and mat a 4 X 6 photo with coordinating paper.  Cut 4 tags for the pocket on the bottom panel  and stamp them using Vibrant Fuchsia with the Today’s Quotes, add ribbon.  On the other side, right of Fanci-Fold pocket panel, Cut an Ornate Pocket Accent out of dark pink paper or coordinating paper, cut a kraft top trim.  Mat photo with kraft. This is all that is shown in photos but there are more panels so keep adding photos and decorative additions to each panel and flap on the left side of Insta-Album.

On the right side of album, top open page-Cut Regal frame out of kraft and back with pink. Cut photo to fit inside.  Open, decorate the other side top flap with the Adorn It, lift flap and decorate inside with a journaling panel and another photo with the bucket of tulips stamped, colored and die cut to embellish the photo. Move over to the right side [of the right side of album] and cut a kraft eyelet heart, pink heart and photo heart then stamp, color and die cut a bouquet of tulips to embellish photo.  Open up again where magnet has pages shut and decorate both left and right panels showing. Left side has an Eyelet Oval cut from kraft with the inside part of the Intricate Swirl Frame cut out of pink over the photo of tulips.  Open the flap and decorate with a sentiment, the inside part of the Regal Frame and a butterfly layered stamped on vellum, embossed with gold and colored on the wrong side with the darker pinks of the Copic markers.  Sentiment is stamped with Morocco on pink cardstock. The bottom part of this left side is another tulip photo matted with pink in the smaller pocket (Regal Pockets), 2 corners from Elegant Pocket Accents and the slot cut out from the larger Pocket (Adorn It Pocket).   On the right, fold all the way out flat, 2 narrow panels, both have the windmill photos embellished by the Fence stamped on kraft and the Tulip Cart stamped on white then colored and die cut along with the row of tulips from the Tulip Cart and Fence set.  One of the windmills is framed with the Hand-Stitched Accents.  Moving on to the left part of this fold out, cut 2 of the Adorn It Pocket Accents, 1 for the bottom flap and 1 for the top.  Mat a photo to slid into the pocket on the bottom flap (the top Adorn It is not made to be a pocket, just decoration.  Open these flaps to reveal the inside which is decorated with more photos.  The bottom inside uses the Eyelet Hearts and Basic Hearts to cut the photos, mats and embellishments.  This is all of the album photographed…There are extra sides to decorate on this side as well.  This 8 X 8 book hold a lot of decorations and photos…I love it for an all-in-one scrapbook.  Perfect for a special occasion or trip.
To finish this album, Add fibers, tags and beads to the bindings.

Heartfelt Creations Sweet Shoppe Gift Card Holder

Good morning!

Welcome to another Inspiration Wednesday!!
I have made a Sweet Gift Card Holder Card for today!  The inside and outside work 
interactively with the top of the cart holding all the goodies for a Sweet birthday and the inside
holds the pocket for a lovely Gift Card.  The cart handle actually keeps the top closed until
the recipient opens it to reveal your gift.  Don't worry, the handle will be ok!

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at
Card size: 5 1/2 X 5 3/4”. Cut a 6 X 11” white cardstock and fold in half.  Cut off the bottom 2 3/8” from front of card, keep the piece because it will be the pocket at the bottom of card.  Glue only the bottom of the pocket to card (so that you can glue a piece of decorative paper to the back later) then cut right side while card is folded, with the Eyelet die of Eyelet Border Basics. Cut decorative paper to fit the pocket, inside back, inside top and front flap then cut the right sides with the plain edge of Fleur Border Basics and glue all pieces to card panels.  Now glue the sides of the pocket to card. Cut the long Eyelet Tag from the Tickets and Tags die set and cut in half lengthwise.  Use one half for the border of the pocket and the other half for the top inside.  Use the grass border punch with decorative paper and glue just the bottom of it (so that the wheel can be tucked into it) to the bottom of the pocket.

Stamp 2 flower pots, sweet shoppe treats, 2 carts, 2 birds, extra wheel, extra cart scallop using black Memento and color with Copics or you favorite coloring system.  Stamp branches using Leaf green, Color with Copics, stamp blossoms using Rose Madder and Buttercup, sponge with buttercup and Pink Peony, die cut and shape  (see video).  Glue 2 blossoms for each flower, add Flower Soft to the centers of yellow flowers, pink Prills to pink flowers.  Glitter all the flowers and the bottom of the cart.  Use Nuvo Sparkle brush on the cupcakes and candy.  Use Crystal Lacquer on the cherries and candles plus the heart hub cap.

Glue 1 of the carts on the bottom of the pocket, (make sure it goes high enough so that the handles will hold the flap closed) the top will be inside covered by the top flap of card.  Cut the top off the second cart and glue it to the top matching where you glued the full cart on the pocket. Fill the top of the cart on the flap with all the goodies popping and double popping some of the front ones up.  Glue flower pots to the ground on the right side of the cart, pop the extra scallop and wheel on the cart (tuck wheel under part of the grass).  Glue the left and right branch to the top of flap  and then glue pink Cherry Blossoms onto branches, pop birds in the branches looking down at all the goodies.  Glue the yellow flowers on the ground.  Glue Sweet Wishes to the flap and inside glue Happy Birthday ticket to inside.  Stamp Have a Wonderful Day using Viridian on pink and die cut with Ornamental Tags then glue to inside top.

My second features a big cupcake surrounded by doilies and flowers, how fun is that?

Before it dries (it takes an hour or so), sprinkle with a mix of colored micro beads and glitter for a fun sprinkle.  Coat the cherry with 3D Crystal Lacquer and glue it to the top of the cupcake before the paste dries so that it is “nestled” into the frosting.  Tie a bow around cupcake and glue it to a pre-cut cupcake shaped foam sheet to pop it up on the card over the split decorative white die cut (so that it shows on both sides of the cupcake).  Die cut a white Sweetheart Border and glue it to the bottom of the card.

Stamp Floral Fashionista blossoms with Buttercup, sponge, die cut and form (see video above).  Stamp Cherry Blossoms with Rose madder, sponge with Pink Peony, stamp with Deep Purple and sponge with Deep Purple, die cut and form (see video).  Glue Cherry Blossoms together in 2’s and pierce the centers to insert Stamen for the larger Rose Madder flowers.  Glue gold Prills into the centers of the purple flowers.  The Floral Fashionista flowers are single layers with Bridal white stamen inserted.  Stamp leaves with Fern Green and sponge with Leaf Green, die cut and form with Cherry Blossom flowers Mold.

Card size: 5 X 4”.  Cut pink cardstock 5 1/4 X 12 and score at 4” and 8”, fold at the 4” and cut 2 layers having the die off the folded edge about 1/4".  Start the cut at the fold and place the top plate about 1/2" from the edge so that you don’t cut through the next panel.  Unfold and finish the edge cut then do the same for the third panel, place the die back on the middle section and fold the third in under it.  Start at the fold and cut to within 1/2"  of the edge and stop, unfold and finish cutting the third panel to the edge.  Stamp and die cut the inside parts of the cupcake 4 times.  Because 2 of the panels are “backward” 2 of the cupcakes need the tops cut off and turned around which is ok because the texture paste will be on the non-stamped side anyway.  Color texture paste with re-inkers.  While texture is wet sprinkle on the Prills and glitter.  Let dry over-night.  Color the cupcake bottoms with Copics.  Stamp numbers, hearts and the 2 sentiments  using Fuchsia.  Wrap each cupcake bottom with ribbon.  Cut out the sentiments with the arrow dies, shortening the larger arrow for the sentiment.  Glue the hearts, numbers, and sentiments onto cupcakes.  Add ribbon bows to cupcake bottoms (except the center cupcake with the larger sentiment).

Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NKJV)

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not [a]fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
