Greetings, Stampers! Today I have a Valentine themed mini scrapbook to share with you. One warning: this is a photo heavy post! I'll skip the small talk and get right down to the details. I was inspired to create something similar to the scrapbook that is featured in the Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog but with a Valentine theme. My scrapbook is the same size as the Fresh Prints DSP stack, 4 1/2" x 6 1/2", and uses lots of that paper. I had planned on doing this scrapbook with a class last night, but had to re-schedule the class due to snow. Boo on all this snow!
The front and back covers are made from the heavy chipboard that comes in the packs of Glimmer Paper and some other specialty papers. I punched holes in all the layers with my Cropadile, and the pages are held together with binder rings that you can find at any office supply store. I covered the front cover with Core'dinations card stock, inside and out, which I adhered with a Glue Stick.
Pages one and two are pretty self explanatory.
Page three features a notecard and a tag leftover from the Holiday Catalog,
and this is what is inside the Note Card.
Pages four through seven are also pretty self explanatory.
Page nine features the Note Card Envelope, which is perfect for tucking memorabilia inside, such as movie or concert tickets.
Here are pages ten through twelve. There are also two pages of Silver Foil Vellum in the scrapbook, and several more pages of Fresh Prints DSP that have been left unadorned for future inspiration.
