Joy's Life Mini Book blog hop

 Welcome to the Joy's Life mini book blog hop!  You should have arrived from lovely Laura's blog.
If not, please start at the beginning at Joy's Life.  The stamps used on the cover are from three different Joy's Life stamp sets:  All Around Sentiments, Joyful Hearts, and Wintery Puns.



I created my mini book from 6 envelopes measuring about 5 1/4" x 7 1/4".  I chose six 12x12 BasicGrey papers cut at 5"x7" to cover each envelope.  I inserted the envelope flaps inside to create pockets to hold these 4"x5" tags:
 Room for pictures, journaling, and more Joy's Life stamps!
 The heart in the bottom right hand corner is from Joyful Hearts stamp set:


 Another stamped heart from Joyful Hearts stamp set:
 And one more for the back cover:
Now I just need to add photos, journaling, and more Joy's Life stamps!

I inked and stamped with Tim Holtz distress inks.
I hope you enjoyed my mini book and I appreciate your time to stop by my blog.

Your next stop on the hop:  magnificent Megan!

Amazing mini album. I think the distressed inks adds just the perfect touch around each page. I am not one for journaling, but that would change if I had one like this.
