Dutch Heritage Mini album, Memory Box style

For the rest of the new Memory Box circle release at Dutch Paper Crafts, I thought it would be fun to make a Dutch Heritage Mini Album and tin.  

The owner of Dutch Paper Craft's mother is Dutch.  I wanted to put some "memories" in this mini album for her.  It was a bit hard as i only know Darlene from being on the i had to "wing" it. 
First let me share the tin cover:
Memory Box dies used are Falana Circle #98494 and Quinn Flourish #98267, similar to the gift bag i made. The image is for embroidery and is a freebie here.  (Gingerbread Cottage blog) I removed the sentiment from the heart.
 I covered the tin on the sides and bottom inside and out.  Inside of the tin i made a mini album.  I cut the pages from a cereal box and lined both sides with paper.  The largest size of the Spellbinders Classic circles worked perfect for the pages.  For the entire album i used paper from Melody Ross Homespun collection called "Pink Stitchery"

Then i accented the pages using the Memory box release circle dies as shown this is pages 1 and 2.

Memory Box dies p3 (not in this release Penne Frame #98387) free embroidery pattern found on line here at French-Knots blog.  (i stitched this up) Page 4 Memory Box Astrid Circle #98498 cut in half and stitched with Baker's Twine, paperdolls found here at Munecas de papel blog.
Memory Box die p.5 Astrid Circle #98498 cut in half and arched, (not included in this release is Cherry Lynn Two of Hearts DL128), p6 i used a punch from Stampin Up to hold Darlene's favorite soup recipe that her mom would make when she didn't feel well.  I've tried this recipe and it's yummy!! Charm is from Spoilt Rotten Beads in the UK.
I made this locket open up, by cutting the heart twice and cutting the lacey part off of the front piece.  I attached the small piece to the back by sewing some embroidery floss through the paper.  However, to make the locket "substantial", i cut the heart out of kraft paper and wet embossed it using a clear embossing ink and the wonderful embossing powder from Ranger Ink called Ancient Gold/Enchanted Gold #EGJ00730.  I left two spots for pictures.
