Capture the Love

   Happy Wednesday, everyone!I hope you all are having a great week so far! Today I want to share a project with you all that I made using the new Heartstrings Picture My Life collection and the new Kraft mini album (both from the Seasonal Expressions Idea Book)!

   Some of you may have seen this cute little album during my Preview Party in November/December, but I wanted to show off the details and talk about the embellishments a little bit more today! Plus I wanted to show off the paper-pack-of-the-month, Heartstrings, on a few more of my projects!

   The new Heartstrings Paper Pack goes perfectly with the My Crush "In the Pink" book and accessories! These mini albums are perfect for using up extra Picture My Life cards, too! The possibilities are endless, but I hope you enjoy looking at the project I came up with!

Kraft Mini Album Cover decorated with Slate diagonal ribbon, 2 Heartstrings PML cards, a pink puffy heart from the Chalk it Up Assortment, and a clip and paper flag from the "In the Pink" accessories for the My Crush line.
The Inside cover was decorated with Heartstrings paper, an "In the Pink" envelope from the My Crush Assortment pack, stickers from the same assortment, and Pink Flamingo enamel dots.
I added Heartstrings PML cards throughout the mini album which has protectors in both 3x4 and 4x6 sizes. Then I added some cute photos of my niece and nephew from this last year!

The 3x4 photos were printed in Studio J and cut apart from the 12x12 sheet! This was an easy and fast way to get all the pictures off my phone and computer, but also get them in a smaller size that does not distort the image.

The back inside cover I decorated with another piece of Heartstrings paper and a couple strips of Slate washi tape. I didn't journal or embellish the cards on the inside of the album, but that's the next step! In total this project took less than an hour to complete!

   This book works well as a brag book in your purse or bag, and also works as a coffee table display album! Either way, you're going to love this little project! Grab your supplies and start getting crafty, friends!

Here's to life, love, and creativity!
