Beautiful Memories - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday everyone x
It is that time of the week again when I share my Heartfelt Creations project with you.
Be sure to head on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog to see an array of totally stunning projects from the other Heartfelt Creations Design Team members. It is coming to the end of our term and we are all on tender hooks awaiting to here if we will be on the team for another 6 month term.....fingers crossed:) x
For my project this week I have used numerous collections as well as the new Sweet Juliet flower die and Antiquity Papers......I just love the vintage style of this collection:)
I have lot's of pictures to share with you as there are 10 pages to my book. I haven't done an in depth tutorial for each page as it would take forever, however I have given you a full list of products that I have used and of course you can arrange your elements as you wish.

 This is the front cover of the memory book:

This is the inside cover: I have made a pocket to add those extra photos or memorabilia

Spellbinder Products used:

Other Products Used:
Deep plum and pale dusky pink ribbon, pearls, pearl brads, pearls on string, lace, Cosmic Shimmer- Glitter Jewels: White Ice, Distress Inks – Milled Lavender & Spun Sugar, Antique metal large charm, Cream Shrink Plastic, Stickles Glitter – Platinum, Adhesive, Pearl Swirls, Burgundy and cream card, Archival Ink – Plum, Memory book, cream shrink plastic
Choose your chosen papers and adhere them to each side of your memory book pages.
Die cut all your elements that you think you may need to begin with, you can always add a few more if you need them.  Make up the flowers, again you may need more, but it is easier if you have a few to start with.
For the front cover I have added my elements and also used a large vintage metal charm as a centre piece. I have decorated the flowers and some of the other die cut elements with some Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels. The tag that I have made is shrink plastic. I stamped the sentiment onto the shrink plastic, made a hole using a hole punch and then heated it with a heat tool which then shrinks it.  On the inside cover page I have made a pocket so that the you can keep extra photos or other memorabilia in.
On the pages that you choose a lighter coloured paper distress the edges with Milled Lavender.
Create each page as to your liking, using some of the card panels from the Antiquity paper collection, also some sentiments and sayings from both the Antiquity and Timeless Amour paper collections. Use Opulent Ovals, Decorative Labels Twenty-Two, Decorative Labels Eight or some other decorative die that you prefer for the backgrounds for your photos. Add the flowers, ribbon, lace and pearls to decorate each page.
To finish off the Memory book add some glitter to the edges of some of the elements and edges of the pages and add some ribbon and lace to the rings of the book.
