Valentine Mini Album CD + FREE Download

I was originally making another felt mini album similar to last year's. After carefully brainstorming for quite some time, I decided a mini album was not something Albert would appreciate. Well, not that he wouldn't appreciate it, but he would not "use" it. It just isn't practical for him. So, I switched gears a bit. Although I think mini albums are THE. BEST. I love mini albums but to be honest, last year's just ended up in a box. heheh So, that being said...I thought this mini album/custom CD was better.
I used a 8.5 X 11" felt piece. You can also use paper. I sewed all around it to add some character, made some pockets on the inside, and sewed some ribbon to tie it together. I glued an embellishment on the outside cover. Cute and simple! On the inside, I added some cute love coupons in one pocket. You can get other free coupons all over the net. Just look online and you will find! ;) I slipped the custom CD in the other pocket. I simply downloaded several love songs (I made sure to include our wedding song "At Last-by Etta James). I embellished the inside with felt hearts (you can stitch or glue them). I also used some letter stickers on the CD case and viola! My handmade Valentine is finished!

I'm working on a couple more crafts before I head out of town this weekend. I'll be back with more inspo. Hopefully a layout or two. Thanks for stopping by!! I appreciate all your wonderful comments!

xoxo,

Veronica

Great idea! I've made cute little minis for my hubby that get put into a box after a while. But we have a few songs that have always been special to us, so a cd in a felt case would be cool! Just found your site, WOW I love it, thanks for sharing all of your creativity!

Hi, I was just tagged by fellow blogger, Miri. I was never very good at playing tag. I just couldn’t run fast enough to tag anyone else. So, even though I have a bad tag record, I am going to give it a try. TAG YOU’RE IT!

As a new blogger, I am aware that many of you are blogging, parenting, running businesses and more. I know your time is precious. My post for this tag, with directions, will post on Wednesday, January 28. I will link your blog and your shoppe if you have one. If we are going to tag one another we should use this fun to promote readership and business.

I would like your permission to use a photograph from your blog to further emphasize how great your work is. Let me know if this is not okay. I am sensitive to copyright issues and know you want to be represented well, even if on a little blog like mine.
This is certainly optional. You are not obligated to play along.

Thank you,

Kelly
