Valentine themed mini album
I am here today with a valentine themed mini album. I have been wanting to this for almost a year now but due to lack of supplies i was really scared of starting it. Then I came across Sonia's Blog which showed how to visualize a mini with a single 12x12 paper!!!!


Annnd did I have one... Yes, just a single yellow 12x12 sheet... So I gave it a try. I went back to Jess's blog for more detailed tutorial and boy was it easy!
Without a scoring board i somehow managed to get lines right and make the folds. This has 7 pockets which I used to create some flaps out of red and yellow card stock.

I don't have any stamps (Yet to invest in them) So I googled for some sentiments and wrote them out using black ink. [Credits to images at the end of the blog].

For the front I used handmade textured paper from Itsy Bitsy in deep-red shade. I have added some metal embellishments of a flower button and a leaf sliver. The 'Love' is made out of hot glue so is the heart symbol on top. I have added tiny punched flowers to add some additional touches.

The inside is plain as of now. I am not sure if i want to jazz it up at this point of time. Finally I have used silver fabric ribbon to tie the album together. 

Supplies:
Papers : from Itsy Bitsy
Embellishments : stash
