Hello, my galentines!  

It's Conny here from @thedailylifeofcreativity sharing two projects with you today using the Happy hearts Collection. The Perfect collection for valentines and galentines projects. Lately, I'm obsessed with creating mini albums from chipboard in different shapes. This collection calls for a mini album to document my favorite moments with my loves.

Let's get started!

The 4x4 chipboard mini album. You need two pieces of chipboard measuring 4x4 for the covers and the spine chipboard measuring 1.5x4 inches. I wrapped the outside of the mini album with color Vibe textured cardstock in the color bubblegum and the inside with Happy Hearts sweet on you.
Next, I added the string in the middle before adding the cover page papers. I matted the covers with patterned paper from the collection kit. Then, I embellished with a few chipboard and cardstock stickers.
After, I added six standard eyelets with stretchy string to hold the pages inside the album. The Pages inside measure 7 1/4 by 3 1/4 and scored in the middle, slipping the pages between the strings. Inside the cover pages, I added a flip element with pockets.  

The inside pages are decorated and embellished with bits and pieces, cardstock stickers, chipboard stickers from the collection. I matted the inside the pages with the cut apart Journal elements sheets.
Alright, that's it is for this mini album.

Next is the Layout!

I was inspired by the forever Yours Paper from the collection. I wanted to bring the flowers out. I found that beautiful heart-cut file. I already had my black and white photo of this cutie which was perfect - I wanted all the color from the embellishments surrounding the picture.

Next, I added the cut-file in the middle of the 12x12 sheet, creating a cluster behind the photo with the journal element pieces. I then embellished with cardstock and foam stickers. I flipped the corner of the layout, then stapled and added happy heart day paper, to get those beautiful flowers. I then splattered black paint and done.

Thank you
Happy Valentines/Galentines Day.

XOXO Conny!
