Heartfelt Memories Interactive Album
Designed by Debbie Brownmiller
This was my 1st sample I designed for Heartfelt Creations semi finalists. I created a album base and then used several paper collections from Heartfelt Creations to decorate it.
Front Cover - Lush Lilac Collection
All the paper used on the front cover is from
the Lush Lilac Paper Collection. Cut a piece of purple paper 6 3/4 x 6 3/4 and
glue it to the cover. Die cut four of the lacey borders from the
Sweetheart Borders and glue them around all four edges of the cover. Created a
6 1/4 x 6 1/4 inch shadow box covering it with some mauve paper. Glue the
shadow box to the cover. Glue the 6x6 cottage panel to the background of the
shadow box. Apply glitter to the flowers around the cottage.Stamp and color
several lilac flowers and two of the small sprays from the Lush Lilac
collection. Cut the flowers and sprays out with the matching dies. Emboss and shape all the flowers with the 3D
Lilac Shaping Mold. Use the stylus from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to
push down in the center of each flower to shape them . Stamp and color the
lilac flower spray from the Sweet Lilac Scroll and Notes. Use the matching die
to cut them out. Cut the bird cage out of white cardstock using the Sweet
Lilac Scroll and Cage die. Glue the bird cage to the bottom corner of the
shadow box. Glue the lilac spray along the bottom of the birdcage. Take the two
tiny flourishes with flowers and glue one to the inside of the box and one to
the top corner. Glue the umbrella to the other top corner. Glue the shaped
lilac flowers to the umbrella and lilac sprays to give lots of dimension.
First Double Page - Lush Lilac Collection.
Choose a 6x6 panel
and matt it with black cardstock. Matt again onto a 6 3/4 x 6 3/4 mauve paper.
Glue onto the inside cover leaving just a touch of black around the edge.
Create one large and one small lilac by stamping and coloring the lilac bases.
Stamp and color two sets of the tiny lilac flowers. Cut flowers out using the
matching die. Shape the flowers using the 3D flower mold and the deluxe flower
shaping kit. Glue the flowers onto the bases creating two dimensional
lilacs. Glue prills to the to the center of each flower. Cut a rectangle
tag from the paper collection. Cut and glue one of the borders from the Ornate
Borders and Pockets die set to the top of the tag. You can mount a photo on the
back of this tag.
Cut two tags from
the paper . Apply glue the bottom of the tags only. Glue these tags to
the bottom of the page. Tuck the first tag behind these two tags.
To the right page
created a shadow box card and glue it onto center of the page. Put the panel
with the window inside as a background. Cut and glue a strip of paper from the
collection up each side of the shadow box. Cut and glue another Ornate Border
on the top corner of the shadow box card. Using foam squares pop up the lilac
spray on top of the Onate Border. Glue some flowers on the spray. Stamp
and color the spray from the fanciful carnation . Cut with the matching die.
Shape the fanciful spray. Glue more of the flowers onto the sprays. Glue
Prills to the centers of the flowers. Find the ticket with the Sentiment "
Always and Forever" from the paper collection and glue it to the
right side near the top of the shadow box. Cut one Lacey Border from the
Sweetheart Borders and glue it onto the binding.
Second Double Page - Singing In The Rain Collection
Find the full
sheet of paper with the wheel barrow and lawn chair on it. Cut two pieces from
the bottom at 6 wide x 6 1/5 high. Glue them to the base pages. Apply stickles
to the flower in the background. Cut one matching boot out from the paper
collection using the matching die from the Rain Boots and Blossoms. Shape and
glue this boot in front of the back boot on the paper. Stamp and color several
of the flowers and greenery from the Rain Boots and Blossoms. Cut them out with
matching dies. Shape them with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Arrange them into
a bouquet in the boot. Spray the flowers and greenery with perfect pearls. Add
glossy accents under the boots for a puddle. Cut a tag from the paper
collection and pop it up near the top of the page.
Both right and left pages flip out giving you a four page layout when opened. Create some cards and tags that all open in different ways. This gives you placed to mount more photos. Cut a pocket from the Ornate Borders and Pockets to tuck a card behind. Cut and use small tags to hold the cards and accordion folders closed. Find the Dancing In The Rain sentiment strip and glue at each end. Attach to the page and slip a card behind it.
Third Double Page - Winter's Eve & Festive Berry
Find the full
sheet of paper from the Winter's Eve collection with the snowy trees on
it. Cut two pieces of paper off of the bottom half of the paper 6
inches wide and 6 1/5 high. Glue these two pieces to the base of both pages.
Glitter the snow on the trees. Stamp and Cut 8 of the gates with matching die.
Glue 4 gates together and then repeat with the other 4 gates. This make it more
sturdy so they don't bend. Color the front and back of both gates. Put a paper
hinge on one side of each gate and attach one gate to each page. Stamp and
color the Wagon wheel from the festive Holiday. Cut with matching die. Stamp
and color some cardinals from the Festive Holly & Cardinal and the

behind it so you have a place for more photos. Tuck this scene behind the deer
and snowbank. Cut the window frame and put a small scene behind it. Fold two
pieces of paper in half a bit bigger than the window frame. Place your die just
above the folds and die cut. Hinge them both together and you have a waterfall
for photos to mount behind the window frame. Stamp and color the Poinsettia and
Holly Clusters. Cut out with matching dies. Put them into the 3D Poinsettia
Mold. Spritz them with water and run them through your die cutting machine.

holly leaves from the Festive Holly and Cardinals collection. Glue these
bigger holly leaves at both corners at the top of the pages. Glue the
