Cut two flower shapes from the chipboard. You could draw your own flower .Note that the flowers are opposite hand so that when put together they match. This is important to remember when cutting the various papers and also when making the holes for the rings.
The album pictured measures 15cm at the widest point
Cut two flowers from the patterned paper, one for the front cover and one for the back cover.
When cutting the flowers, if you are very careful in the placement of the the pattern, you can cut four flowers from one 30 x 30 sheet if you wish to only use one sheet of patterned paper
Cut two flowers from the pale green card for inside each of the covers.
From the plain piece of card, cut 4 flowers. These will be your pages, you may add as many as you like Mark and punch the holes for the rings. One ring only can be used if you prefer a a flip album.
Glue your covers to the chipboard flowers and when dry, sand the edges for a neat finish.
Cut a tag from the second sheet of paper and apply the rubon and attach to the front of the album.
Add some Kindyglitz and rhinestones or the embellishment of your choice.
Add your flowers.
Attach the rings to the album and add ribbons and fibres of your choice.
Your album is now complete.
Products used for this album

Today I would like to show you how to make a Baby Girl Layered Page Keepsake
Using double sided tape, join the 28 x 28cm patterned page to the 30 x30 cm plain card leaving a 1cm edge all around.
Score and fold a line 1cm in on the long side of the 26 x 15 cm plain card. This will be the hinge.
Using double sided tape, join the 25 x 12 patterned paper to the previous sheet of plain card leaving a 2cm space on the hinged side and 1cm at the centre.
Attach this page to the previous page with double sided tape, making sure that there is equal distance at the top and bottom.
Score and fold a line 1cm in on the long side of the 20 x 12 plain card. Decorate the top and bottom edges with a patterned punch. (optional)
Also punch along one long side of the 16 x 10 patterned paper.
Using double sided tape join the 16 x 10 patterned paper to the previous piece of card.
Attach this page onto your project with double sided tape, once again making sure it is centralised.
Score and fold a line 1cm on one long side of the 15 x 9 plain card.
Using double sided tape add this page to the top of the previous pages.
Insert brads in equal spaces along the hinge to hold the pages securely.Decorate the front cover by adding suitable embellishments. You may like to add the baby’s name and photos to the inside pages as well. As an added touch you could run gold sticker borders around each page.

I made this for a friend using a Kaisercraft kit for the boards which I painted and covered with patterned paper. I then added some peg clipes to hold notes etc and decorated with flowers and my friends initial.
