The front cover is decorated with the Sparkling Poinsettia stamp and die set. I didn't glue my front and back covers and the decorations on the front until the inside was complete. Be sure if you are adding a closure or ribbons, glue them to the front and back before gluing down the designer paper. I made a clasp for my book but cutting two pieces of paper 1 3/8" X  6", adding a magnet in between the papers on one end. I added the decorative ribbon and metal embellishment to enhance my Christmas theme.

As I started to assemble my book I cut 1/2" X 8 3/8" strips and glued them in the spaces between each page. This was just a choice, not a necessity.  This was a learning curve for me as I have never worked with flip folds before, so it was a sort of learn as you go along thing. :-) When I cut my background sheets I measured the pages and cut the paper 6 1/4" X 8 1/4" and if I do another book I will cut the 12" X 12" sheets in tow 6" X 8" pieces and add a mat behind them. This way you can get two pages from one sheet of paper.
The inside front cover has a pocket created with one of the gorgeous corner dies that are part of this release with a photo mat tucked inside. The right side has a pocket created from one of the flipfolds. I think the original idea was to run it across the bottom of the page, but I thought it looked so much like a boot turned up this way, so I just went with it!
These pages have two of the flip fold pieces, the one on the left folds out to have thirteen sides to add photos, how cool is that> the right side is a single pocket to add as many photos as you wish.
These pages use just one flipfold on the right, which folds out to house twenty photos. The left side has a pocket I created with our new  three piece eyelet oval die.
These pages use two of the flipfold inserts, and small sweet pocket on the left to add photos or trinkets, and a large flip 6" X 6" pocket with a tab on the right. I also created a bottom pocket for designer paper and one of the three amazing new border and pocket die, ooooh so yummy!
These pages use one flipfold insert on the right, to hold six photos, and the pockets on the left were created with the wonderful new border and pocket dies. "Noel" & "Joy" letters were created with a page from the Italiana Riviera Collection and cut with a 3/4" round punch.
The last two pages of my book are a wonderful deep pocket on the left that will hold lots of photos and a flipfold on the right that will hold up to ten photos. The cute little film strip was made with a square punch and one of the new border dies coming out in our next collection. 
I hope you enjoyed my little project and be sure to check out the other Design Team members on the Heartfelt Creations Blog for tons more ideas and there are a few videos along the way as well.
Thanks for stopping in today.
Hugs, Maureen
