Heart-Shaped Love Notes Mini Album

Cherry, bumblebee and pistachio.  These Doodlebug colors just make my heart happy ... especially when they are all together!  Another thing that makes me happy?  The new Love Notes collection of course!  
For today's project, I created a heart-shaped mini album using white card stock and 6x6 Love Notes (and petite prints) paper.  
Once I had all of the papers layered together to make six double-sided pages, I started the really fun part ... embellishing!  I love how there are two of the flower clusters in the odds & ends package. This allowed me to place them back-to-back over the album edge on the cover and first page! 
The matching flower cluster on this page is from the icon stickers, and I used sprinkles throughout the album to add a little shine!

The pink mat in the photo above is actually a 3x3 doodlebug card that lifts up to reveal pictures or journaling inside.  
The little notebook on the cherry page above is from the mini icon stickers, and the scallop "love you" circle is from the this & that sticker sheet.  I'm pretty sure I used something from every embellishment source in this collection!

I had so much fun with this sweet little album and I hope these pretty colors and embellishments have inspired you to be crafty today!!  What will you make with Love Notes?

Love Notes Page Layout Kit

Hey There!
Oh, how I love the weekends. Everything feels a little more relaxed and ... happy!

By the way, fun fact - I recently read somewhere that people are the happiest on Saturdays at 7:26pm. Really? 7:26pm? That's oddly specific, but ... ok. With what I do for a living, I'm pretty happy most of the time. I mean, it's hard to be cranky when you're working with hearts and fun plaids and fat little birds!

Speaking of cute products, check out my new page layout kit. See? What did I tell you ... colorful hearts, fun dots and the birds! So happy!
Although this doesn't have to be for Valentine's Day, that occasion isn't far off. This would be great for all those selfies of you and your sweetie. It can be ordered pre-made or as a pre-cut do-it-yourself page kit. So, basically you can get 2 fun nights outta this. One - date night with your cutie taking brag-worthy photos. And two - the fun scrappin' night with your girls, saving those super cute pics! Win, win!

These pages aren't overly romantic so they can be used for any occasion where you're with someone you love. With sayings like "You Make My Heart Smile", your kids or grandkids pics would be adorable on these pages! Or pics of matching mommy & me outfits!

Oooo! A "Gal-entine's Day" outing just for the girls or a sweet daddy/daughter night out for ice cream would be so cute too! There are spaces for 12-13 photos of varying sizes and places to journal so you can write all about that fun or special occasion.

This Love Notes page layout kit is available in my shop, so hop on over and check out what else is new. See you there!
