Love mini Album {Clique Kits | Bella Blvd Blog Hop}

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  I'm so excited to share with you what I created for the Clique Kits | Bella Blvd Blog Hop.  The XOXO kit was packed full of fabulous items from the Bella Blvd Valentina collection, Crate Paper Hello Love, Clique Kits exclusives and more....

I created this mini album for my love. I still need to add photos but here's how it looks for the time being.


This entire album was inspired by the vellum pockets that was used as packaging for some of the embellishments.  I added some sequins from the kit and then sealed the edge so that they would not escape. 


I created the inside pages using several sheets of pattern paper that I cut down to approximately 5.25" h x 7"w. Once I had all the papers cut, I stitched them and the envelop together by sewing right down the middle.


















































As you can see, I have lots of space for love notes and photos.  After all was complete on the inside, I decorated the outside.



The first thing I did for the cover was adhere the ribbon around the front and back, leaving plenty of room to tie it closed on the side. Oh and like I said earlier, I added sequins to the inside of the cover and sealed the edges. I even added some dabs of glue inside the envelope for a few of the sequins to stick to so some stay where they are and some move around.  Then I added the gold foil doily heart and sentiments.

Make sure to follow me if you are on Instagram (@heatherleopard). I have several giveaways planned this year (with one coming up this next week).

Now, head over to Candice's blog for more fabulous inspiration.

Make sure to participate in the entire blog hop for a chance to with a XOXO kit. from Clique Kits.
