Sweet Sugar Hallow Mini Album

Good Morning all,

Hope you all are doing well today and preparing for a nice weekend. Yes, it's Super Bowl Weekend and although I don't share a lot on my personal side because it's all about crafting. (lol) I'll tell you, I am a huge Denver Bronco's fan. So having them go to the super bowl is a real treat. (lol) I will definitely be wearing my Bronco gear and hoping they win. :D

Okay, So who is ready for Spring??? Well I am, although it's been a little on the mild side here in North Texas. It's suppose to reach 73 degrees, Whaaattt??? lol  But next week will be cold even if it's in the 40 - 50's the wind makes it unbearable.

Today I am sharing a bit of Spring with you using the New Released Sugar Hallow Collection from Heartfelt Creations. (love, love, love this set)
This 3x3 mini album is a treat for sure. I created it for the Crafty Card Gallery our Theme - Try Something New. 

So here we go:
Here is my Project and supplies:
For the the front ofthe book I did fussy cutting(did a lot of fussy cutting throughout)
on the tag and owl from the collection. 
The little flowers were sent to me by a friend and I thought would look pretty on the tree. 
I inked around the paper edges with Momento ink - Lilac Posies. 

Here is the mini album opened

This is the first page fussy cut the tags and added a corner pocket to hold the tag. 
I embossed the corner pocket with Anna Griffith - April Garden emboss folder.

Fussy cut the corner flower piece and the little owls on top of the next page.
I just love those little owls. :D

Fussy cut the corner piece to hold the little tag.

A corner piece to hold the owl ticket

Fussy cut the flowers and used as photo corner pieces.

Fussy cut this cute little owl with the pink flowers.
Only the bottom of the flowers re glued down, so you can 
stick a photo behind this little owl.

Added this tag piece with pop-dots for a picture or to journal. I also layered him so he is mounted with a pop-dot. 

This back piece with the owls sitting on a fence is fussy cut from a tag. 
I adhered it as an inside pocket for a photo or tag. 

Here are the tags that fit inside the page pockets. They measure 2 1/4 x 3 1/2. 
I used Spellbinders Devine Floral Die for the tops of the tags and 
sprayed with Color Bloom - Cotton Candy.
