Templates - available from

STEP ONE: Prepare the Album. Remove the protective coating from all six sheets of plastic. Cut out the Holes template from the Placement Templates sheet and line it up with the left edge of each page. Punch the holes with the large punch on the Crop-a-Dile. Use book rings to hold the book together.
STEP TWO: Create the Picture Chain. Locate the 14 pre-cut 1.75x6 (4.5x15.25cm) pieces of Ruby Ornate Floral paper. Make two stacks of 7 strips each - one stack with pink showing and the other with flourishes showing. Add tacky tape to the top and bottom edges of each piece in the flourish stack. Use the template as a guide to add a strip of tape to the middle of each piece in the pink stack. Place a pink strip in front of you and remove the backing strip from the tape in the middle. Line up a flourish piece over the top and press it to the tape. Now remove the backing strips from the flourish piece. Press a pink piece to it. Keep alternating
flourishes and pinks until both stacks are gone.
Locate the 4 1/8 x 6 (10.25x 15.25cm) pre-cut piece of cream cardstock. Use the Cardstock Scoring Template by placing the cardstock over the template, using temporary tape to hold it in place, and then scoring across the two dashed lines with a ruler and scoring tool. Remove the cardstock from the template and fold it on the lines, arranging it like a backwards card. Glue a 2x6 (5x15.25cm) piece of Mini Dot paper (green side up) to the front of the card. Add the two round buttons, using mini-brads through the holes and attaching a rubber band under each button. Use tacky tape to attach the chain inside the card. Use tacky tape to attach
the finished chain card to the right edge of the front cover.
STEP THREE: Clear Sheet One - Front Cover and Page 1. Place the sheet over the Placement Template. Add a large rub on flourish to the left side. Peel up the large striped frame sticker and the spotted frame that is nested inside of it. Cut the spotted frame in the middle of all four sides, creating four corner pieces. Stick the corner pieces to the BACK of the large striped frame, in the corners. Stick the large frame onto the front of the cover, using the Placement Template as a guide. Peel up both of the flourish corners. Stick one in the lower
left corner of the cover. Cut the other one into four smaller triangles and stick them in the corners of the frame.
Turn the clear sheet over and glue a 2x6 (5x15.25cm) piece of Polka Dot stripe paper on the left edge. Peel up the teal frame sticker and center it over the square. Cut the striped rectangle sticker in half both ways, creating four small skinny strips. Stick one on each edge of the teal frame. Cut four small triangles from the brown-bordered teal rectangle sticker and stick them in the corners. Cut a large corner from the taupe rectangle sticker and stick it in the lower right corner.
