French Kiss Mini Album

Hi friends! I'm sharing today over at the Doodlebug Design Blog This sweet "French Kiss" Mini Album will have you saying "oooo la la!" 

On a recent trip to the Dollar Tree, I found a cute wall hanger:

  This hanger included four heart-shaped chipboard pieces that were the perfect size  for a mini album.  I cut it apart the strand of hearts and used them as the five base pages:

For the business card holder that I have, you can find ones online.  Mine includes 12 individual clear pages with three slots for cards on a page.

To begin, I cut enough base papers to fill each of the card slots.  I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill to attach two  (non-double-sided papers) back-to-back.

For the front cover of the binder,  I wanted a good secure hold for the cover  paper so I chose the Adhesive Sheets 6 x12 inch for attaching my patterned paper.

 Afterward, I decorated the front with die-cut elements using  the 3D Foam Circles White Mix. To create glittery snow drops, a combination  of Adhe…
