Hi everyone! Tara with Secretbees Studio! It is never too early to start craft projects. You never know what is going to come up and besides, all the beautiful paper is out just waiting to be made into something even more awesome!
Now that all of your Christmas decorations are up and your presents are wrapped (Ha!) you need something to do with your time. This mini album, made with the gorgeous My Valentine paper collection from Simple Stories, can go right on your to-do list!
This sweet album is 6 inches square and the base is chipboard, two covers and a spine, that were covered in some pearly faux leather along with some of the charming patterned paper. I took one of the layered frames of the collection and made it into a shaker filled with flowers, gems and pearls for the highlight of the cover. I then added in some Bits & Pieces, stickers and chipboard for even more pretty dimension!
There are five sections inside the album and they are all attached to the spine with coordinating twine. All of the sections unfold to reveal more space for photos or mementos and there is a large double pocket section in the center. Each page has been beautifully decorated with the stickers, chipboard pieces, frames and Bits & Pieces of the collection that add even more charm to the gorgeous papers! Here are a few of the pages.
I'm sure you have your hands full with all of the things we do during the holidays but make sure you take time out to checkout this amazing collection from Simple Stories. You will not be disappointed and you will probably want to add it to your Christmas list! There is a short walk-through video on my YouTube channel that shows this sweet mini in more detail!
