Magical BIrthday Mini Album

Unicorns and bright, candy colors make the perfect setting for any girl's birthday album! 
  I'm sharing one of my favorite go-to mini scrapbook albums using the
 "Lots of Luck" Collection.  This collection is filled with unicorns, hearts, 
flowers and other non-St. Patrick's Day icons so think of it for your next project!


To get started I chose three sheets of the Petite Print Swiss Dot papers 
and cut them in half as follows:
Green Dot: cut at 5"= 5" and 7" Pages
Pink Dot: cut at 5.5"= 5.5" and 6.5" Pages
Orange Dot: cut at 6"= one 6" page
Next, score all of the pages in half so that they measure the 
height (above) and 6" wide.  Apply a strong adhesive to the bottom opening to
 create a pocket for each page.  I chose to use a binding machine to die-cut the
 holes, so that was also done before the pages were decorated.






Each of the pages were embellished with a photo mat and other components 
such as washi tape, enamel dots, icon die-cuts, stickers and 3D embellishments.  
I also used the cut-apart journal cards to create small pockets on the pages.
  Simply add a thin-width adhesive along the bottom and sides and 
then slip in a tag or two!






I used a sentiment from the new "Rainbows & Unicorns" Doodle Stamps 
for the tag on the cover.  The set includes a lot of generic sentiments that
 can be sprinkled throughout the album. 

I hope that you enjoyed this "magical" mini album and will give the design
 a try the next time you're in need of a quick birthday gift!

♥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!

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.
