Antique Linen, Vintage Photo,Walnut Stain(all are Tim Holtz) Use sponge to distress with! these Tim Holtz inks can be found here at Scrapbookpal.com
All ribbon Rosettes are Handmade by me(see Tutorial HERE), Vintage Seam Binding(for little flowers)Ribbon for Bows(several yards for bows,rosettes),Roses(10), Buttons(6) use as desired, and crystal gem hearts(3), Bead strand for the 1 tag!
Lace trim for front & back of front cover(this is glued to small heart on the front, and smaller heart on the back of front cover) 1 yard. Back of book heart(used decorative Tulle cut thin 1 inch long strips and attached to smaller heart )
Inside Pages:(1) 17 inch piece for first page same thing(glue to small DP heart then attach to larger heart),Back of 1st page:(cut 5 1/4 inch piece of ruffled trim), 2nd page(used different trim17 inch for around heart), and green lace 5 1/4 inch piece for on top of heart.Back of 2nd page:5 inch piece of wide flat lace to attach to this page. Last page(back of book) 6 inch piece of wide lace for top of heart.
To Start: First you will want to distress all hearts as desired. Next You will want to add your lace to all DP(as desired) or shown! Then you can attach the design paper hearts to each of the larger 5 1/2 inch hearts(do fronts, and then do backs) if sewing make sure to sew each piece(DP to 1 heart) then glue both front and back pages together(I use ATG GUN)!You will want to continue this step until all pages are together(if not sewing, you could add trims).
Now you will want to add all your pieces (tags,heart shapes,cutouts).Put tags together after you distress them, you can design them to your liking! Add them to any page. Last thing you will do is add all your rosettes,roses,buttons,ribbons! I left the photo frames with just distressing and stamped image until I want to add photo's to them. You could add your own photo's, or even a stamped image. then you can punch a hole with the crop- a -dile in the left hand corner of each heart, then use a ring to hang the pages on, if you don't have a ring to use, you could always use ribbon :)
Just have fun making this sweet book, I know I did!! :)
Here is another picture of the back cover with a picture of My Grandpa and Great Grandma! I wanted to show how you can just add the pictures in (use foam dots, or photo corner brackets) I couldn't find some old ones I had bought like 15 years ago, oops I lost them in the move maybe...hhehhehehe :)

Here is a video on how I made the little rosettes, and scrunched up pieces with vintage seam binding!
( I used these between the ribbon rosettes, and on some of the pages I used them as a rosettes under the roses! I glue them down with the hot glue gun! :) Fast and Easy!!! :)
This is the 1st heart shaped notebook I made this past weekend!
