20 cute things I love about you - mini album

Hi, everyone! Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to share with you this lil project I created for my daughter this year. I feel that we can not say often enough our children how much we love them, and what are those things we love about them.

I decided to gather some cute things about my daughter and put them in a heart-shaped album. To do that, I printed out 20 tiny journaling cards with my thoughts and trimmed patterned paper into 5x7 cm to create 20 tiny flaps. I fold back the top 1 cm of the papers and adhered the journaling cards to the back. 

Next, I cut two big (21x19 cm) hearts from patterned paper using my Cameo.. I chose the red heart for the back of the album, attached it to a heavy cardstock piece and cut it around. Next, I adhered a wide ribbon across the heart background using double-sided tape. Then I added all the cute patterned paper pieces with my journaling on the back to the background and added photos and embellishment to the front.

To finish my album I cut in half the second heart, and attach the heart pieces with the ribbon to the back. I also added two cardstock paper stripes beside the ribbon to hold the half hearts in place.  I created the title with mixing and matching alphabet stickers from the Crate Paper sticker book.

This project is perfect to use up your stash and to give some love to your family members. I hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks for stopping by!

    This album is so sweet, I just adore it. I'm now thinking how can I reproduce a similar album. Thankyou for sharing.

    Hi, can I ask is this album on your Pinterest page as I can't find on there? I am hoping to keep as a reference.
