Valentine's Mini Albums/Coupon Books & Blog Hop Winner

I'm not sure I feel quite right posting Valentine's Day projects when it's not even Thanksgiving yet but Imaginisce just released a new collection called Love You More and we're showing it off on their blogs soooooo, I'm debuting what I created as well.

Before I reveal it though, I HAVE to tell you how excited I am with the new direction they took with this collection. This is my favorite collection from them of all time. I love the texture of the paper (no more glossy elements) and the style is just different, in a good way! They also have really great sticker sheets and alphas! The best part is - WASHI!!!! I seriously love it and I'm not just saying that because they sent it to me to create with! Here, let me prove it to you and show you these fun things I made.

I decided to make 2 mini albums with this collection; both are for my girls. I cut the albums from all the 12x12 paper in the Love You More collection using my CAMEO and various cutting files.

Love You More
The Love You More mini will be a mini album with photos and notes documenting me and my hubby’s love story ‘cause I like to make sure they know how much we care for each other.

XOXO Coupon Book
This XOXO one is going to be a coupon book for my girls to. I’ll be adding little coupon notes to the slip in cards for fun activities we can do together as a family in February.

Creative How-to: Using my Silhouette CAMEO, I cut each envelope using the library pocket tag cutting file by Lori Whitlock. I used a different tag for the insert called 7 Christmas Gift Tags, also from Lori. Once the envelopes and tags were assembled I embellished the fronts an backs of each envelope with stickers, ribbon, washi, fussy cutting, pop dotting and more. If you look closely you may also notice that instead of using tags for some of the envelopes, I used the 3x4 cards from one of the 12x12 papers. These sets can be used independent of each other or I can put them together to make one mini as I planned the design of them to allow me to do that - the back of the last page of the Love You More book has some hexagon print stuff on it. :)
