TIP: Use a die-cut letter (from “Moments”) as an initial or first letter of a word or name on your project.

Lightly ink the entire outer cover of the album with Dark Brown ink and let dry. Cut a 6” square from aqua/brown flourishes paper. Trim a stripes/lace border from the yellow bordered sheet and glue even with the left side of the square. Glue the paper centered on the right side of the inked album. Add Brown Thin Lines Dazzles™ to the edges of the square, trimming to fit. Glue brown corner die-cuts to the corners. Cut a Post Card down to 2”x4¼”, with the hole at the top and clip the top corners. Mist the entire front of the key heart tag with Mallard ink, then mist the edges with Tattered Leather ink. Let dry. Add Brown Thin Lines Dazzles™ to the edges. Glue the tag angled to the left side of the flourishes paper on the album. Zot™ a key onto the tag as shown. Cut a small tag from ivory/yellow textured paper and ink the edges brown. Write or computer print name on the tag (foam tape a die-cut letter for the first letter if you like). Add a Brown Thin Line Dazzle™ to the edge and a ribbon tab to the top. Glue the tag overlapping the lower right edge of the key tag. Glue or foam tape Clock Die-Cuts overlapping other elements as shown. Write or computer print “family photos” centered on the narrow ivory die-cut and ink the edges with Brown ink. Foam tape to the lower right portion of the album front. Glue the Hand Die-Cut pointing to “family photos”. Embellish with Gold Jewel Dazzles™ and Zot™ bow in place.
