Hey Cupcake Flip Mini Album

Hip Hip Hooray for birthdays!
 I'm excited to be sharing my first ever flip-style mini album.
 It's so easy to put together and makes an adorable addition to a table display.
 Aside from adding small photos to it, guests can also
 write little notes inside the pages:

To get started I created the triangular base from a 5"X9" 
sheet of patterned paper and three pieces of chipboard that measured
 3.5"X5" (two pieces) and 2"X5".  
I placed the chipboard onto the paper as below:

After attaching the chipboard to the paper, I made creases in
 between the chipboard pieces and folded.  Next, I used a hole punch 
to make two sets of holes on both pieces of the 3.5" pages:

As you can see above, I also made a small paper topper to hold
 the base together at the top.

I wanted to make a cleaner transition between the topper
 and below, so I used the scallop border from the new Doodle Cuts
"Borders& Edges" to cut a blue border from cardstock.

For the cover I made a mat with the "Large Tags" Doodle Cuts and then
layered with a Doodle Pop, buttons and Chit Chat Die Cut!

I simply crafted the inner pages (as well as the cover above) 
 from a 4.25"X 6.5" paper that was folded in half.  I corner rounded the bottom
 edges after folding and hole punched the top.
All sorts of Doodle Cuts were used to make tags and mats for the following pages:

After decorating all of the pages, I used two 1" rings to clip them to the base
.  Bows of ribbons were tied on and it's done!

♥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…

**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.
