Paper Niche February Kit

Loved this kit, it has some of my favorite manufactures of paper in it, like Simple Stories and Basic Grey. Lots of Valentine goodies in this one! So for this month I made an album, a stationary box filled with 6 cards, 6 mini note cards,  6 tags, two layouts, an easal card, and I still had some paper left over!

First up is the album I made using the Simple Stories paper that came in our kit. The base of my album is coin envelopes that you purchase at your local office supply store. I covered these with the paper and made some hinges out of card stock to hold it all together. My plan is for each envelope to be a month of the year so that I can stick a picture or two and some journaling in there every month and it the end of this year it will be a mini year in review album.

Here's a photo of the front and back

Here are some of the inside pages, I made tags that pull out of the pages as well

Ok, so here's the stationary box I made. It may just look like an ordinary box but wait till you see the inside!

It holds six full size cards, six mini note cards, and six gift tags. Along with a mini notebook to jot down birth-dates and etc and a pocket for your stamps. This would make a great gift to give someone.

OK, next up is the two layouts I made in honor of Valentines day this month

Here are some close up shots

And finally another Valentine Day easel  card

I hope I inspired you for Valentines Day. Don't forget to check out the Paper Niche to see what the other designers created!
