Today we are having a cute, informal blog hop showing our love for mini books. At first I was hesitant because I haven’t made a mini album since this one. There was no set theme for the mini’s. The three common denominators were 1) white card stock as a background, 2) numbers 1-10, and 3) rings to bind everything together. But what other cute theme to use for Valentine’s Day than “LOVE”??
I made this album using some extra October Afternoon Daily Flash sleeves and just sliced those babies in half. I decided to make the album 10 moments I had with Eric. I had a great amount of photos in all shapes, sizes and media that had no place in my Project Life album simply because they were dupes already. When everyone said they were making a mini album, I still wanted to stay true to my Project Life (or pocket scrapbooking) style.
The cover is a white chipboard cut down to 5×7, and the sleeves are pretty much 4×6, with some 2×6′s in there somewhere. I liked using different textures and overlays in the album, especially tags!
This wood heart is actually a CHA Exclusive from Lizzy herself (in her booth, I snagged 2!) The other side is actually white and stamped in her signature blue Dear Lizzy logo! The 10 is from Maggie Holmes called “Doll” in glitter gold foam.
The album is a good size, just dainty enough to flip through without it falling apart!
Opening page, a little intro to Eric and I. This was our VERY first “good-bye” when we were dating. We began as a long distance couple. Amy Tangerine Plus One thickers - ummm caaaaayutte!
