Little Claire Friday Project - Swirly Birds Mini-Album

Hello, Heidi here to share this week's blog project.
I have made a little wedding mini-album, using the gorgeous 'Swirly Bird's' stamp set.  It is a great little set with three larger images and lots of little sentiments.
I have coloured the images in using 'Wink of Stella' glitter pens, these little pens are just glorious to use. They make the images all sparkly!
Here is my album, taken in several photos.  Firstly, the front

 and the inside

Here are the products I have used on my mini-album :

 Little Claire 'Swirly Birds' stamp set
Cream and Pink card
Craft Creations 'Pink Dotty' paper
Craft Creations 'Pink Check' paper
Frilly Die # 3 in two sizes
Tim Holtz 'Rosette' Die
Wink of Stella Glitter Pens - Clear, Gold, Pink & Green
Tim Holtz 'Spun Sugar' inkpad
Memento 'Rich Cocoa' Inkpad
Magnetic clip
White pearls
This is how I put it together :
(1) Cut a piece of cream card to measure : 30cms x 12cms. Score at 12cms, 15cms and 18cms.

(2) Die cut three of the larger 'frilly' dies from cream card.
(3) Taking one of them, score in half and stick to one edge of the album.
(4) Cut three pink squares, 11.5cms x 11.5cms.
(5) Cut three squares, 11cms x 11cms from the 'Pink Dotty' paper, stick to card and then album.

(6) Cut two oblongs, 11.5cms x 2.5cms from pink card and two more, 11cms x 2cms from 'Pink Check' paper, stick together and then to centre panels of album.
(7) Onto remaining 'frilly' shapes, stamp up to of the images using 'Rich Cocoa' inkpad.

(8) Colour with 'Wink of Stella' pens and edge with 'Spun Sugar' inkpad, stick in album.
(9) Die cut from pink card, one 'frilly' shape. Cut in half and stick to top of album flap.
(10) Die cut 'Rosette' from 'Pink Check' paper.  Put together and stick to front.
(11) Stamp up 'heart' image onto cream card, colour in, cut out and stick to rosette.
