March - Sugar Rush HWBH

 This Blog Hop features Canadian Close to My Heart Consultants showing you their projects. This months challenge is to use the Dreamin' Big paper pack found in the Seasonal Expressions 1! 
 If you came from Corinna Murphy's Blog, then you are on the right track. This is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere.  Just in case, the full list of participants is at the bottom of this post. 

When I first saw this paper pack in the Seasonal Expressions 1, I knew I wanted to create a mini album with it.  I am not a fan of the bug side of paper but happily the opposite side has flowers!
The Front Cover

Inside the Front Cover

The next page has a lift flap!  Under the flap and the opposite page were both stamped with the Dreamin' Big card making stamp set. 

 This layout used the scraps and zip strips plus the the Dreamin' Big Compliments.

These pocket pages can hold cards and any size picture up to 5x7

 Inside the back cover, these pocket pages can also both hold any size up to 5X7! I used the Dreamin' Big compliments to embellish the page and to hide the magnet on the blue pocket.

*Confession time- When I started this album it was supposed to be an 8x8 album with a binding system of attaching the pages to each other.  Unfortunately I couldn't get the pages together evenly.  So I shrunk the album to 6X8 so I could reuse some pages.  Then (I was really having issues) when I punched the pages with my bind-it-all, I accidentally punched the wrong side of the back cover.  I fixed that issue with some white glimmer tape to hide the extra holes then repeated the tape on the front cover to match. I love how it turned out!
