14 Days of Love In February Mini (and a Giveaway!)**

Hi all! I am back today to share with you a quick little mini album that I have prepped for the upcoming month of February. The core concept for this mini album is my idea that I would take the first 14 days in February and document something I love about that day. Kind of like a December Daily, but on a much smaller timeline and on a much smaller scale.The core inspiration for this album was the Allison Kreft Webster's Pages Recorded transparency 

paired with some Lawn Fawn Into the Woods and Webster's Pages Recorded   12x12 sheets.
And,  of course, embellishments and stitching. ;)
The tools & supplies I used for this mini album were my Big Bite hole punch, my Fiskars trimmer and Microtip Precision scissors, Tim Holtz tiny attacher, my "Brother" (sewing machine),  my vintage Royal typewriter, roller date stamp, gold ink, and adhesive, and two circle rings.

I simply cut up each piece of the 12 x 12 transparencies and patterned papers and sized for uniformity, stacked several together, and punch two holes in each. Then I began assembling them, stamping the day's date on them with the roller date stamp, stitching them, and adding embellishments . I layered in the transparencies in between each page and will add photos and journaling as each day comes along.




Shop Items Used: As linked above plus Freckled Fawn Wood Chips, Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party epoxy stickers, Crate Paper Close Knit Wood Veneer ShapesPink Paislee Hey Kid canvas stickersWebster's Pages Recorded 6x6 paper padand more. 
I am stoked that I have this mini album prepped and ready to "find love" in February!!
