Heart Flower — Be Mine Valentine Hop

Hello friends! Today I am super excited about the hop because one of you can win a $40 gift card to CutCardStock. Now, let me tell you something….$40 can go along way in the store because the prices are rock bottom! The inventory is huge too with paper, stationary items and ribbon. In order to be entered for a chance to win you must comment at each stop along the hop or upload a project that includes product from CutCardStock.

Heart Flower

I made a flower from hearts created from one sheet of cardstock.

I used one sheet of paper from this pack:

First cut 3 small hearts ( I started mine at 2 inches), 4 medium hearts, and 5 large hearts.

Distress the edges…

Now ink them.

Place them on a brad from smallest to largest fanning them out with each placement.

Starting on the inside of the flower crumple each heart until you are left with what looks like a piece of trash.

To make the flower bloom simply peel back each heart. Pop a center if you want to complete it.

Now it’s time to hop on to the next wonderful crafter. Make sure you leave a comment at each stop.

Cardstock Based Mini Album

I got a little carried away with my hop project. This little mini album has been rolling around in my head for months.

I was taking pictures of each step on how to create this interactive album, but I decided a video tutorial would be better.

The inside of the album after I got it decorated!

Each pocket holds an insert and more can be added as needed!

The corner pieces have three pop dots holding them down so pictures can easily be slid behind them.

Tags were created with leftover paper.

A couple close ups of the binding I created with cardstock:

To see the album in action, a complete walk thru and other supplies I used to create it check out this video:

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween project and found the tutorial on how to create the mini album useful! I am going to give this album away on my Instagram account once I hit 5K followers.

Now it’s time to hop! Your next spot is:
