This Makes Me Smile | Inspiration

Hello everyone! Happy 2015 =) This is Sam today to share a mini album that I made for my pen pal. One of my new year resolution in 2015 is to send more Happy Mails to my Instagram friends. My pen pal, April Joy send me a pen pal album with a lot of fun facts about herself in February 2014. And it only took me 11 months to make my own version of pen pal album and send to her. *LOL* 

She told me her favourite colour is Pink & Mint so I decided to make the mini album with pink and mint colour cardstocks. Then I built my pages by adding various journaling cards, stamps, wood veneer and puffy stickers from Shop Evalicious. This is gonna be a photo-heavy post as this mini album has about 18 pages in total. So grab a cuppa and I do hope you enjoy looking at my mini album (which I have yet to write my pen pal letters on it).

I added a lot of tags as side tab for the mini album, just for fun.

I love love love adding white embossed image on vellum and stitch them on patterned papers to make little pockets - to hold tags / hidden notes.

Another page that I use white embossing powder on stamped image and added some puffy stickers. This is so easy and fun!

Embossed image on the shipping tag could act as resist when I added water-colour.
