Embossed Love Mini Album - Bo Bunny


Embossing Folders - are you like me and have quite a variation of embossing folders - from spots, to hearts, to stripes, to music..... today I have a project to show you where I have used more than 8 different folders - an embossed Mini Album entitled - "I Love You, 7 days a week".

The Front Cover.

Inside the front cover - more details on the pocket full of hearts further down, keep reading!!

I love recycling or maybe repurposing cereal boxes and notebook covers, any re-usable cardboard I guess - here I have used a notebook cover which I have cut to my required size.  I used my Zutter Bind it all to bind this book together.  After using my Zutter, I painted the edges of the covers black.

I used Bo Bunny - Head Over Heels 12x12 sheets of Paper - Head over Heels and Boyfriend.  This is a great way to make a project when you don't have a lot of paper but wish to feature a particular one.  I have used a lot of cardstock with this album, but highlighted with the Bo Bunny Papers.  This photo shows the two papers, and examples of the black cardstock page base, with a red layer and the mini envelopes.

These are the "7" days a week envelope pockets - showing where I have used the Bo Bunny paper as a pocket front.
Tip: as I had to hand cut the pocket fronts I first made a cardboard template and traced around this for each pocket so that my pocket fronts were all the same - I keep the cardboard template in with the die..

This is an envelope full of love - there are many hearts of varying sizes and shapes.  I used dies and punches and stamps, different coloured inks, different paper types....

I Love You on Sunday..  
Every Day page has a different layout and a different journaling box in each little envelope pocket.  I created a tag for each pocket with the journaling box attached. For the name of the day - I gold embossed on black card, a frame onto which I adhered a strip of white card with the black embossed day name. I embossed each pocket tag with the same embossing folder that I used for the red background layer.

I Love You on Monday.  

I Love You on Tuesday.

I Love You on Wednesday,

I Love You on Thursday.

I Love You on Friday.

I Love You on Saturday.

The Back Cover.  Inside the back cover is another small envelope with a White Heart placed inside it - simply stamped with the word Love...
