Heartfelt Creations File Folder Mini Album

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Welcome to my blog.  It's a Heartfelt Creations project today using their beautiful Frost Blanket Paper, Stamps, and Dies.  This is called a File Folder Mini Album.  They are very easy to make and I know you would have fun putting one together just like I did.  At the top you can see the mini album front.  I have inserted a picture that shows you how it opens to give you an idea all the little pockets you can create.

This is the back of the mini album open.  See how much fun it is.  I used stickles to trace around all the pretty images in the paper and added lots of Martha Stewart Snowflakes.  I made the snowflakes as pull tabs for all the tags.
This is the album front folded and ready to be sent in an envelope to a treasured love one filled with pictures of you and your family.  Notice the pretty tags that are from the Frosty Paper Collection.
This is a side that has the image from the Paper Collection as the Design.
This section has two of the stamp sets
The greenery is another stamp from the collection.  It's colored with copic markers and dabbed with paint, sprinkles with glitter and pearls added.  You can find the tutorial here at MyLilTreasureTrove.  This piece folds down to store pictures.  Here are the products use:
HCPC 3493-Yultide Sentiments PreCut Set
HCPC 3490-Holiday Mail PreCut Set
