Valentine inspiration :)

Hi my friends.
Finally I'm ready for some valentine inspiration this week.
The flu still bugs me, but I've been out today bought some sweets for my love, and I made this little mini album earlier this week.
Hope you'll get some inspiration :)
My Darling isn't much of a pink-lover. He would rather die than holding some pink stuff in his hands.... So well...I saved my pink cardstock for someone else....LOL
And instead I folded this fun little mini-album (card) for him to put on his desk...or maybe on the piano..... or in his pocket....LOL
For this project you'll need:
3 pieces of 6X6 inch (15 X 15 cm) white or neutral cardstock
2 pieces of dark brown cardstock aprx 3x3 inch or 7 X 7 cm
Pieces of patterned paper (GREAT way to use your leftover scraps)
4 photos 7 x7 cm
piece of ribbon
something to embellish the front ( I have cut the birds out of some Basic Grey patterned paper)
doublesided tape

- fold your pieces of cardstock in half and in half and in triangle. Open, and you'll get these scores: Lenghtwise, horizontal and from left to right corner.

-do the same to all the three pieces of cardstock, and glue them all together like on the picture above. :)

Crop your 4 photos in size to fit in the squares. Mine are 7 x 7 cm.
Add the photos to the open squares.

Cut pieces of patterned paper to fit in all the other open spaces of the album.
I was inspires by the colors in my patchwork.... and I wanted the colors to be all different....

Add the pieces of patterned paper to your album.

Cut two pieces of dark brown cardstock 7 x 7 cm and cut out the pattern you want to use as an embellishmenmt on the front of your album.

add a piece of doublesided tape to the front cover of your album. Add the ribbon that will bind the album together.
Add the brown square that will be the front cover on top of the ribbon, and add the back cover on the back side of your album.
It will now look like this from the back side. (the inside of the album facing away from you)
The album is basically finished now.
Add text or embellishments of your desire.
Have fun creating!!!

And please, leave me a link if you play along and make this minialbum too. I would LOVE to see your project!!
Hugs and kisses!
not to forget:
We are celebrating Mothers day here in Norway this sunday too - so we have three days the same day:
Mothers day
Have a wonderful weekend.
