Ephemera's Vintage Garden - Love Is Chic #3

Happy Wednesday evening, my friends! 

I'm back to share my third and final project using the 
Love Is Chic Digital Journal Kit from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.

As some of you know, I just finished a mini album using this beautiful kit. 
If you haven't seen it, just scroll down and take a look at my last post. 
I had lots of tags left over that I chose not to use in my previous album. 
So what did I do? 
I made a mini mini album using all those pretty tags and leftover bits of paper! 
I also altered a sweet little tin to put it in.

I made this mini with another event in mind.
On Sunday is my 29th Wedding Anniversary 
and I just might give this to my Sweetie!
I have inked all the edges of everything with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. 
All the tags are backed with light grey cardstock. 
There are lots of placed to write all kinds of gushy sentiments! 

Here's the front of the tin:

Here's the bottom of the tin:

Here's a side view...showing the silver tin and the pretty trim:

The mini mini is a perfect fit!
It measures 3" X 4 1/2" if you include the binding wires.

I made the front page into a pocket that holds a couple of tags. On the back I added a stamp.

I adhered all the word digis together and added them randomly throughout the album. 
The back of the "laughter" says "you & me". 
The next page is one of the little paper bags from Michaels. 
It makes another great pocket to hold more tags. 
It's quite thin, so IRL you can see the image on the tag. 
Then on the front I added another stamp.

Here's the back of the bag with a little digi and a tag page.

The page on the right is another paper turned into a pocket.

The other side of the "forever" says "together" and the right page is one of the envelopes from the kit.

Here's the back of the envelope. I used a leftover flower to hold it shut.The right page is another tag.

Here's a closer look at the tag inside the envelope.
Isn't it adorable? I actually included two of these! ;o)

Another decorative addition on the left side, and a tag on the right.

The back of the "devotion" says "love" and then I added the lock. The key is on another bag.

On the back of the bag I added this beautiful heart. The right page is another pretty tag.

Here I adhered two of these matching hearts together and made a little insert. 

Here is the back page of the mini. I made it a pocket page too.

This one final photo shows all the tags that are in the pockets.

This sweet little mini was so fun to put together!
Other than the two little paper bags, and some grey cardstock,
everything is from the Love Is Chic Digital Kit.
