A small mini book is the perfect, thoughtful gift to give to someone you love for Valentine’s Day, and today Ashley Laura is with us to share one that can take only minutes using our January Kit and add-ons! We know you’ll love it!
Hey y’all! It’s Ashley here, back with a fun little mini album focusing on the So Loved Shipping Tags. I don’t know about you but I LOVE black and white. It’s the perfect compliment with any color, especially pinks and purples, and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to create a cute little mini album to give to a loved one!
I began with the So Loved Shipping Tags and a couple of the Noteworthy 6 x 6 Paper Stack papers, cut to a tag. (Here’s a quick tip: If you don’t have a tag die or a tool that creates tags, the best way to make a quick tag is to cut the corners off a rectangular piece of patterned paper and punch a hole!) I added the pages of my album to a book ring, and then began embellishing.
I used several components from the January 2019 Kit to embellish my tag book. Die cuts, like the transparent Heart and Star Acetate Die Cuts and stickers, like the new Happiness Found Stickers, are the simplest way to decorate a mini album without the mess or fuss! I added a few little sentiments from the Happy Heart Stamp as well!
Adding puffy shapes and words from the Sweetheart Puffy Stickers added a different texture to my mini, and accented the sweet photos that I added to my pages. There were also several die cuts included in the January Kit that worked perfectly to layer on my pages, stickers and acetate die cuts.
I hope you all have gained some inspiration from this project! No fancy tools needed, just grab your scissors and you Elle’s Studio January Kit and extras and get creating!
