For tips on using the Albums and Inserts watch this video: https://youtu.be/uThSFbPtnYE.
Instructions:  Pick out the papers you want to use and cut out to fit on the album then glue down. On the cover piece I used one of the medallion dies to cut out the design before I glued it down. Be sure to determine where you need the magnets to be ahead of time so you can use the paper to cover them. Cut the dies and glue down where you like. The lace die cut was used as a border and the partial circle die was used as a pocket to hold two tags. The tags were cut out of the paper pack using the Luggage and Tags Dies.
Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink stamp the flowers and leaves onto white cardstock then use the coordinating dies to cut out. Color the centers of the flowers with New Sprout Memento Ink then add Flower Soft to the center of the flowers and set aside to dry. Color the leaves with a dauber and New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink stamp the honey jar and bees then use the coordinating dies to cut out. Color using a combination of the Dove Blender Pen and the daubers and Dandelion and Cantaloupe Memento Inks as well as Rosebud Memento Ink. The little bees are colored with Dandelion and Teal Zeal Memento Ink and the Dove Blender pen. Add glitter to the bee's wings and allow to dry. Once everything is dry you can determine where you want the decorative elements to be and glue them down.
I stamped the sentiment onto cream cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and used one of the honey comb shaped dies to cut out then I edged it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Glue it down and then add one of the little bees to the corner of the sentiment.
I didn't do a lot of decorating to the inside as I wanted to leave room for adding photos.

Instructions: My card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2". Make card base and using one of the card fronts from the paper collection, cut out the oval center using the coordinating oval die. Cut a rectangle of contrasting paper and glue it to the center of the front of the card. Also pick another piece of the paper and cut out an oval and set that aside. Adhere the paper to the card front using dimensional tape. Make sure the rectangle piece of paper is showing through the oval cut out.
Stamp and, using coordinating dies, cut out the beehive, sentiment, flowers and bees. Use Rich Cocoa Memento ink to stamp everything except the sentiment and use Tuxedo Black for that. Color leaves using Dove Blender Pen and New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. The beehive is colored using Dandelion, Cantaloupe, and Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and a combination of the Dove Blender Pen and daubers. Color the flowers with Teal Zeal Memento Ink and a dauber.
Shape the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and then add Prills to the centers and set aside to dry. Next do the little bees. Add black glitter to their bodies and then add Crackle Paint to their wings and dip them into the Crystal Clear. Set aside to dry. Once dry curl their little wings up so it gives them a bit of dimension and looks like they are flying.
Glue the beehive house to the oval you cut out of the paper and then add the tiny flowers on either side of the steps. Add dimensional tape to the oval and adhere it into the oval cut out on the card front. Make sure to use enough dimensional tape so that the oval stands up above the card front. Decide where you want the little bees to be and glue them down. Glue down the sentiment piece and then tie a bow using the seam binding and adhere to the bottom corner of the card. Your card is ready to go.
