P.S I Love You

Hahaha, Please do not get confused by the title.. I am not doing a book review...I suck at reviews ( and that is just about anything)..

Happy Valentines Day all.. The last few weeks all on the blogland and facebook I have been bombarded with the valentine fever... So finally I sat down to make this mini and put in all the love I could for my someone special... Mind you, it is not for him but I did make it keeping him in mind soo...

I made a mini... I have no name for this.. it is like a flat version of an explosion box, just bigger in size...And I put in as much of pink and black and red possible.. I am almost blinded by the bright colors *wink*

I wasn't too sure how to do up the cover so I have left it without any embellishments for the moment, so if any of you have any suggestions please feel free to give them to me.. I would really be obliged...

SO now that I have given a lengthy enough introduction to my post, I shall go on and share the pictures.. Needless to say, like all my posts, this is a VERY picture heavy post.

    I absolutely love this quote and really does hold true... Like you can see, no embellishments.

Bottom Flap

the top flap opens to a tag page

so does the bottom flap

the tags

the inside flap

a close-up of the sentiment

the tags

the other flap

I absolutely loved doing the distressing inside the die-cut. Thanks Tejal for this inspiration. It makes a lot of difference to a project from taking it to ok to something eye-catchy. *hugs*

another panel to hold tags

There is a similar panel on the other end too which read 10 reasons I love you and holding a couple of tags.. I forgot to take pictures of that.. :D

a peek-a-boo page

This pee-a-boo page is inspired by Erum who happens to be a great source of inspiration to me. Thanks Erum *hugs*

the inside of the peek-a boo page

Again, the other end has a similar pee-a-boo page. I have tried to balance it out as much as possible...

heat embossed CS with heat embossed sentiment and an insert

This was my most favorite part.. I tried heat embossing for the very first time and it was super fun... :D

the insert

the pocket and insert together

centre panel

The idea for this mini came all off a sudden.. I was kinda bored since my niece isn't around and once I started I could not stop.. I think I went a bit overboard... It was challenging for ti had quote a few firsts for me.. The distressing and heat embossing bit... and I think I used up most of my dies which are quite few as you can see.. :LOL
