Inspiration monday #1 :)

Hi my friends, and welcome to the very first inspiration Monday! :)
As I promised you yesterday I'll show you how to make this cute and simple "love" album.
You'll need
Patterned paper, I've used Cosmo Cricket "early bird" Craft kit
1 sheet of Cardstock, I've used Bazzill red
Alpha stickers, I've used Pink paislee and American Crafts thickers
felt heart
jumprings
hole-punch
Print out the envelope-pattern. It will make the base for all the pages in the album
Cut out pattern and transfer to backside of the patterned paper you want to use as your minialbum pages.
You can draw the pattern, or simply print it on the back of the paper.
Each envelope will measure aprx 9x7cm ( 3,54 inch x 2,8 inch )when folded.


I've made 5 envelopes,. but you can make as many as you like. Cut and fold all the envelopes.

I've used my 1 inch circle punch to make a half circle on the top of the envelope.

Glue the bottom and sides of the envelopes.

Now we are ready to make the cover. Cut two pieces of patterned paper, same size as the envelope, aprx 9x7cm. glue the pieces of patterned paper on to the cardstock and cut around, leaving a little frame of cardstock around the patterned paper.

Add pictures, textboxes, titles and what ever you want to put on your envelope-pages.
Make holes trough the covers and all the pages using your hole-punch.
I've binded my album with two jumprings.

Embellished the front of my album with a large felt-heart. Used some Velvet Thickers as title. Added the title to a tiny strip of patterned paper, and glued it on to the felt-heart.

I finished up all my pages, added some titles and little embellishments.
Here are all my finished pages for the album.
I have planned on making some tags with journaling to put inside the envelopes.





Hope you've enjoyed this little tutorial.
I hope I'll manage to make this a habbit, and post one new tutorial every monday.
Have a happy week.
