Heritage Book final pages!

I am posting the rest of the pages from this project now, since the classes for it are over. Was a great success...ran for two evenings. Thanks to all who participated in the class, you are all so fun to craft with,
Here is the cover again, just so you don't have to look back and forth between two posts to get the whole thing.The book measures 6 x 12 inches. The F is stamped in ink and then covered with a thin layer of Crystal Effects to add gloss and dimension. The bracket is a die cut. I will post recipe for stamp and inks and paper at the end of this post.The tag is up on dimensionals.

Here is the first page, the photo corners and square are also on dimensionals.I think everything else is easy to figure out, if not you could e-mail me for clarification.
Page two has some paper tearing on the top photo corners and then before attaching with dimensionals, a brad is added to each corner. All my paper edges are sponged as I love the effect this adds to a project.
Now here is a super fun page, this is the one people signed up for the class This page has a section that opens to reveal some pop up tags.There is piercing along the chocolate chip strip of paper that may not show up here but is there.
Ta Da! here is the page flap opened...isn't this a fun surprise. Well, I like it and so did the classes. I used the word window punch to punch out two sections behind the tag, half an inch apart from each other ...with the middle of the punch right on the fold line. I then scored the upper and lower edges of between the punched areas and did mountain folds are compared to valley folds this makes them pop out. One tag is attached to the bottom half and the other is attached to the top half. Hope that makes sense, cause I don't have a picture of it to show you. If I make another book I will remember to take a picture of the part so you can see and edit this post with the new picture.The biggest trick here though, is to make sure the tags are adhered above the crease and not hiding it completely or the page will not close well. Here are two It does not slide all the way out. The belly band is ONLY adhered to the BACK of the chocolate chip. If you adhere any where else it will not slide right. As well do not put dimensionals anywhere along the length of the slide area on either side, as this will make the slide not work as well.The cut out area on the green for the slide area was done using the word window punch.
Here it is with the slide out so you can see it.
This page is done the exact same shown just so you can see the book.

Here is the last page The tag is on a dimensional but attached only on the outside edge so it does not interfere with photo placement.
Hope you enjoyed this project. And now the recipe....all items are Stampin Up unless otherwise stated.
