12 Things Mini Album

Today I have a photo heavy post for you so beware!

It is Friends with Flair at Unity and I used a number of different Unity stamps for this project.  I have also used lots of American Crafts papers, stickers, chipboard and rub ons.   I have also used some Cappucino twine from The Twinery, some SRM Stickers and some Elle's Studio cards.

I got the idea for this mini album from Pinterest where there were 12 envelopes filled with prepaid date nights (one per month).  I decided to make a mini album for hubby for our anniversary (it is on August 22 - a few days from now) but I gave it to him early as we are on our way today for a weekend in Seattle!  I have 12 prepaid date nights and I did 12 reasons I love you to go along with it.  The pages are 6 X 9 envelopes of which I covered each side and used the inside to hold the 'coupons'.


This uses a lot of twine so it is also for The Paper Variety challenge:



The cover
And the pages.








Here are the coupons, and of course the first one is the Seattle Getaway.  The month titles are cut with the Making Memories Slice  and the Calendar card.

So I won't be able to visit your blogs this weekend as I am away, but I do hope to meet up with Sparkle!

OMGSH Laurel, what terrific inspiration! I have been racking my brain for what to do for Steve for a wedding present . . . the man wants nothing. This might just work! If so, I owe you a huge debt of gratitude, girlfriend!

Happy anniversary - I'm traveling next week so sure to forget! LOL

Hugs!
