Valentine Mini Album Hop/Swap

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion and the Valentine Mini Album Hop/Swap!! Happy Valentine's Day!!!! Thank you so much CallyAnn for hosting this fun hop! You are going to love all the beautiful mini albums that have been created. We all made a mini and then sent it to another person in the hop! 

If you have come from Jearise's blog you are in the right spot. If you have stumbled upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning, please go HERE.  Please be sure to stop and visit each person in the hop so you don't miss a thing.  We also have some yummy blog candy up for grabs:)

Here is my mini:)

I cut the 5 x 5 hearts from the Sweethearts cartridge using my gypsy and cutting them out of a thinner chipboard. I multi cut the chipboard 3x's for them to cut through. I then changed by settings and cut additional hearts out of the pattern paper.  All the pattern paper is from My Minds Eye- Love Me collection.  I used a heart corner punch for the corners of this 3 x 3 mat and pop dotted the 3" bird on that which was cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge. The Happy Valentine's Day sentiment is from My Craft Spot ~Build a Valentine Set. Actually, all of the sentiments in this mini are from this adorable Valentine set. If you are looking for a valentine set to add to your collection..this is a must have! I absolutely love it!

I kept the same pattern going throughout the mini. On the left side, it is a journal mat which is 3x3 along with a little critter. The journal stamp I used is from Autumn Leaves which I stamped in SU Ruby Red.  On the right side is where the photo would go. I have added some pull out tags with a cute saying just to add more fun to the mini.

  40. This album is absolutely gorgeous! I love that you used the same pattern paper throughout, while changing up each page slightly. this has been such an inspiring hop! I am definitely making some of these albums. :)

    I am a new follower. Usually Valentine's Day is a family affair...we just eat a dinner, usually at home, but I had to go into the office today so we ate at Waffle House of all places!!! LOL. Not exactly my ideal V Day spot, but it was ok with the little one. My 13 yr old and I played Mario Cart. Now I am hopping along in peace and quiet. Nice day...

  41. SUPER CUTE!!!!! I love how this turned out!!!! I bet it took a while! Awesome job! Hugs- Glora

  42. Cute album!

  44. Oh shoot. I thought I could delete my old comment and just repost it with what I forgot to post the first time. Anyway...I love all your little creatures on the different pages. How cute! TFS. Jearise in Lorby's World. I am a follower now and my husband and I always sneak away for an hour or so to have a romantic date night dinner.

  45. Sherrie, your mini is so cute! I love that you did it in a heart shape. I love the chick on the front. She is adorable. The paper is very pretty. I love the subdued colors of it rather than the brights. Makes it look antique. I love all of the characters you added to each page too. Very cute! Great job (I'm already a follower and I celebrate Valentine's Day by bringing candy to my co-workers, making gift bags with a pencil for my daughter's classroom - she's a teacher, sending out V-cards to my BFF's and my grandsons, and loving my husband by giving him candy and a gift and then we go out to dinner.) xoxoxo tfs Tami
