Our Love Soars Pocket Mini

Don't you love giving handmade? 
 Today I have a really quick and easy "French Kiss" Mini Album that
 features pocket pages that can hold tags, handmade coupons, gift cards, etc. 
 It's double-the-fun!

To begin, I sorted through the patterned papers and components from the 
collection and chose several of the pieces sans red accents.  
Next, I cut three different papers into 9"X6" strips;  you will be able to 
et two pocket pages from each 12X12 paper.  
Reserve the leftover paper for photo mats.

Each of the six 9"X6" strips were scored at: 3" and 7"; turned and scored at 5.5". 
 The papers were folded along the score lines and the flaps
 secured with a permanent adhesive tape. 

The fronts and backs of the pocket pages were accented with 3"X4.5" photo 
mats that were cut from leftover papers, as well as papers from the 6X6 Paper Pad.

I created grassy hills using a circle die and Limeade Petite Print Swiss Dot paper.  
This is a perfect way to anchor pieces such as lampposts, puppies and people!

To finish, a small hole was punched at the top left of each pocket page 
and a binder ring strung through to hold the pages together.  
Die-cut tags were added to the pockets and embellished at the tops with 
mini paper clips and die-cut hearts.  It may be mini, but there are tons 
of places to add photos, journaling and keepsakes!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
