You're My World Album

Edited to add the directions!Have you seen the latest album kit being offered at Wholly Scrap!? It's a visual delight! A darling boardbook created by our very own Gillian. This love filled album was created using some darling earth-inspired paper, glittery letters, and a white gel pen....Who knew it could be so fast and easy to create such a wonderful treasure!

The best part? Gillian has already cut and collected all of the supplies needed for the album...All you need to do is stop by the store, pick one up, and start assembling! No muss, no fuss...Now that's divine...

Tonight I'm posting all of the photos and tomorrow I'll be back to fill in with specific directions so stay tuned...and for now, sit back and enjoy the show!

Cover (shown above): Cut yellow card stock to fit the front, round the right two corners, use an exacto knife to cut out the large world (so that you leave the words around it intact). Cut out flower border and add to a strip of blue cardstock. Cut out 2 brown flowers and 1 yellow flower. Add foam tape to the back so that they will be 3D! Tear the blue cardstock on one side and add to yellow paper. Add “You’re My World!” and add white dashes on the yellow cardstock.

Page 2 (inside cover) - cut blue cardstock to fit the page and round the corners. Cut out a 4 ½ by 6 ½ photo mat in green cardstock. Add the multi colored striped border to the top of the page and the thin yellow border down the left side. Adhere the photo mat. Adhere the rest of the multi colored striped border to the bottom right. Cut out you mean to world to me! Adhere on an angle at the top with foam tape. Add a world at the bottom with some foam tape for dimension. Add 2 sparkly sticker asterisks above the photo mat. Add the “Kiss Me” to the bottom striped border.
Page 3 – Cut the pattern paper in half so that half the border is on one sheet and half is on the other sheet. Add a strip of blue cardstock with a ripped edge so that the paper will fill the page. Cut the paper to fit the page. Add the green border to the left side. Add a brown 4 ½ by 6 ½ photo mat at an angle. Mat “the earth laughs in flowers” icon in yellow cardstock. Add to the top of the page. Add “& Hug Me” to the bottom. Add the dashed white lines on the edge of the photo mat.
Page 4 – (just like page 3) Use the other half of the pattern paper for this page. Add brown cardstock with a ripped edge to make the paper fit the page. Add a green photo mat at an angle. And add the “if you love what you have… the whole world belongs to you” icon matted in yellow cardstock. Add “Hold On” to the bottom of the page.
Page 5 – Cut a brown piece of cardstock to fit the page. Add a strip of the multi colored plaid border at the bottom matted in yellow ripped cardstock. Add yellow ribbon on the border and tie a bow to the right side. Cut out the circular “We’ve got the whole world in our hands…” mat this in blue cardstock and add a dashed line on the outside of the blue circle. Add foam tape to the circle and add it to the left side of the page. Add “TO LOVE” at the bottom of the page.

Page 6 – Cut striped pattern paper to fit the page. Add a strip of green ripped cardstock about 2” thick to the right side of the page. Cut the multi colored trees border in half so that each side has 3 trees. Add the multi colored trees border to the top under the cardstock. Add a yellow photo mat with white dashes to the bottom. Add a world with foam tape half on the photo mat and half on the cardstock. Add “HEART” diagonally.

Page 7 – (opposite of 6) Cut circles pattern paper to fit page. Add a strip of green ripped cardstock about 2” thick to the left side of the page. Add the multi colored trees border to the bottom under the cardstock. Add a yellow photo mat with white dashes to the top. Add a world with foam tape half on the photo mat and half on pattern paper. Add “U BABE” diagonally.

Page 8 – Cut blue tree paper down the middle of the tree. Use the bigger paper first. Cut the paper so that the half blue tree will fit on the page. Add a green photo mat with dashed lines. Of the extra blue pattern paper cut a tag about 3 x 3 3/4”. Add circle pattern paper to the center about 2 ¾ x 3 1/2”. Add a small piece of yellow ribbon folded and stapled to the top. Repeat with a brown cardstock and striped pattern paper tag. Tuck tags under the photo mat facing in towards the center of the book. Add “Love U” down the side of the photo mat.

Page 9 – Add brown cardstock to rest of the blue tree paper to make a full page. Add blue and brown border to the edge between the pattern paper and the cardstock. On the brown cardstock add a green pocket. Cut out a multi colored tree to add to the front of it. Make a tag to fit in it (3 ½ x 2 ¼”) Add world to the top half hanging off the tag and staple yellow ribbon to the world.

Page 8/9 spread - So you can see how the tree meets in the middle of the book.

Page 10 – Cut multi color tree pattern paper to fit the page. Add a strip of yellow cardstock less than 2” in width to the bottom of the page. Add blue and brown border to the left side. Cut out small world with words around it and use foam tape to adhere it over the border. Add “My Heart Is” to the cardstock.

Page 11 – Using the green pattern paper that you cut the world and words out of cut out as much as you can to fill the page. There should be brown swirls in the upper left corner. The lower right corner should be missing. Using the excess green pattern paper, line up the pattern and add the section that you need. Most of this is covered so it does not need to be perfect. Add the brown trees border to the bottom with a small strip of blue ripped cardstock at the bottom. Cut out a brown photo mat with dashes to adhere at an angle on the right side. Make a tag out of green cardstock and the striped paper. Add “URS” to the bottom of the page.

Back Cover - Add the extra piece of cardstock to the back cover. Tie the green fiber going down the middle of the book and tie a bow on the outside.
