Hello! Lorilei here today sharing a love filled Mini Album! La La Love is such a fabulous collection and I wanted lots of layers and goodies peeking out in my mini album so I made all kinds of pages for this mini!
I have had this idea in the back of my mind for years and La La Love inspired me to make it happen. I wanted to have a place where I could add notes, thoughts and letters to my daughter about love and relationships. Motherly advice so to speak :). The beauty of this album is that I can continue to add to it over time and the inside is fun and interactive but it is housed in a secure sturdy album ( Dear Lizzy Album by American Crafts)
I made a tag to start the album with Hannah’s initials on the back of the tag. The next page is a short pocket made from the Bouquet paper. I cut the paper to the size I wanted, folded it up from the bottom and stitched around the three sides. I added a card from the ephemera pack clipped on with the super cute x & o clips and a bit of washi on the bottom.
Next I made an envelope from pink card stock and decorated it with vintage music paper, washi, chipboard heart and a heart from the Thickers – My Sweet sheet. On the back of the envelope I added a title using the First Kiss Thickers and a phrase from the Like You cut apart paper.
The next page is a cut down page protector. I kept the pockets simple and added a piece of the Berry Sweet paper with a chipboard heart and a sticker on top! I also added the XO rubber paper clip. I love that the clips are so cute sticking out at the top!
The next few pages feature a 6×4 card from the In Love paper (I added a photo on the back) and a mini file folder I made from the Be Mine paper.
This set of pages uses the back of the mini “file folder” and a page from a cut down piece of the My Guy paper. I added snippets of papers with stitching and a sticker to decorate the page!
Next up I made an envelope from the Love Note paper and a little custom closure, beside it I punched a letter I wrote and added a card cut from the My Guy paper held on with x & o clips.
I have added more envelopes, a 2×2 pocket page with images of movies about love I would recommend and more little pages, I have tucked in poems and all kinds of items. The envelopes really helped me to add heartfelt thoughts, knowing they would be tucked away.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I had so much fun making this album and I encourage you to put together an album about love for yourself or as a gift to someone!
