Halloween Mini Book Happy Mail

Happy everything-Halloween month!
I'm so excited that one of my favorite months is finally here.
To go along with this month is one of my favorite things to make: happy mail!

I started with this cute, clear cosmetic bag (6.5"X4") that I found at 
The Dollar Tree and crafted items to fit neatly inside.


To the zipper pull I attached a shower-curtain ring that holds a spool of washi 
tape and a package of bradies.


Next up is this sweet little mini album!  To create this I followed the ingredients below:
12X12 sheet of paper scored at 3", 6" and 9"; turn the paper and repeat the scores again.
Next I cut the 3" and 9" vertical lines just up to the 3" horizontal lines.  
To assemble the pages, I folded the pages and attached the panels to the one next to it.  
The first panel and last panel will be single pages that you can attach together
at the end of the process.

After decorating the cover and the inside pages with a swatch of paper, 
I kept the inside embellishments to a minimum so that it could still be folded.





Stickers, sprinkles, die-cuts and clips are perfect additions for the tiny-mini!

Lastly I made up an ensemble of bitty embellishments and a layered button sampler.


I started with some of the punch-out tags and then layered on the die-cut tickets, 
stickers, doodle pops clips and sprinkles!  For the buttons, I used a 3D adhesive dot 
to attach enamel sprinkles to the centers of the buttons.  Removable dots were used
to add the buttons to the cute tent die-cut.

Now isn't that sweet!  All of those yummy colors will make your pen pal drool :)

♥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…

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.
