It's that time of year!  Hearts, flowers, chocolates... and Doodlebug's Lots of Love collection!  I have always loved Doodlebug Valentine's crafting... there's just something about the bright colors and all the cute little icons!  I decided to create a fun accordion mini ... I plan on filling it with photos of my favorite people! I fell in love with this type of album while taking the fun Mini Albums 101 class from our friends at Scrapbook & Cards Today. They are the perfect mini to document everything from day to day to a special event!  Take a peek...

I started with my covers... I cut 2 pieces of chipboard and covered each with the Hearts side of the Happy Mail paper.  I used the 6x6 pad version of the papers, I love how the smaller scale prints work perfectly with smaller projects.  I decorated the cover with flowers from the Bits & Pieces, the sweet lady bugs from the Hug Bugs Doodle Pops and then added some shaped sprinkles from the With All My Heart and Bright Bouquet packs.

For my accordion pages, I cut two strips of Raspberry textured cardstock.  I scored them both to form the accordion folds, then overlapped and glued the two pieces together to form one long strip. I glued the covers to the end pieces to form the album.  Now for the fun part... decorating the pages!

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut a variety of papers from the 6x6 pad and used them to cover most of the pages.  I also used smaller stitched dies to make photo mats, and the note pad pieces from the Bits and Pieces for journaling spots.  I then pulled out the Bits & Pieces, Doodle Pops, This & That Cardstock Stickers, Icon Stickers, Odds & Ends, shaped sprinkles  and Chit Chats and started decorating.

I made a little pocket to hold one of the tags from the Bits & Pieces.   I love the word stickers from the This & That stickers, they're fun to add to photos.  I also popped up some of the elements for some dimension.  Here are more pages...

Since I believe it's more fun to see projects in action, I created a flip-through video of my album in action...
