Punk Rock Valentines Day Mini

I love Valentine's Day! I know there are those out there who don't she in my sentiment but I can't help it. I love, Love, LOVE Valentine's Day. See now Valentine's Day isn't just about showing your significant other how much you love them, it's about your family too! I used a lot of different elements in this album...Enjoy!

This is just a basic paper bag alum that I made using pink paper bags. The angel wings are Tattered Angels resist chipboard that I misted with Glimmer Mist. I outlined all the pages and the cover with regular black acrylic paint. The journal tag and the tag in front of the wings is from Echo Park.

Here is what the album looked like after is was assembles and painted. Usually you want to embellish the pages before you bind them together just because they're easier to handle that way. I wasn't planning on embellishing a whole lot so I made them album and then embellished.

The plaid paper I got from the dollar section at Target. Isn't it cute?! The tag on the little flap is Echo Park.

Again, Target dollar spot flower paper and I LOVE this air balloon tag from Echo Park.

I had to much fun making this mini. Now all it needs is some pictures! That seems to be the issue with all my minis. I make the mini without any pictures in mind yet when I make layouts I always have to have the pictures first. Go figure!

I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day and spent it with someone you love! Until we meet again, Happy Scrappin! SB


  1. Hey there Sam,
    Just came to check out your blog again since I haven't seen it for awhile. I see you have been busy scrapbooking and making mini-books. Just read through your posts and am reminded that your time here in town is limited and the clock is ticking. Time seems to move so fast when one stays busy, but I think we still have a couple more scrapping visits to go before the big move if we fit them in right. I'm thinking I probably should go out and purchase some paper bags so I can finally get around to making up one of those cute little paper bag mini books before you go. That way I can be sure to learn all your tricks to assembly with those - first hand - while you are still here.

  2. I'm really in love with the hot air balloon myself! Target's dollar section is awesome! But sadly here in the city, the closest target is 2 hours away:(
