Will post the link to the box  tutorial to go with the album here as soon it is uploaded.

Supply list :
Gilded Lily 12 x 12 - 8 x 8 and 6 x 6 One of each paper pad, pockets and tags, ephemera cards, stamp set, shabby chick key and key hole all from Graphic 45, Walnut cream cardstock from Bazzill, pop dots, seam binding, glue, score board, cutting tool, Ranger multi media matte,Tyvek envelopes,8x1mm magnets,punches,chipboard, gold ink and Pan pastel.

If you are cutting out the flower strips around the page you need one more sheet of the Royal Gardens paper or you can use the Versailles 12 x 12 papers on some of the pages inside the album instead of the Royal Gardens paper.
