All You Need is Love Card Kit Mini Album DT Post for Robin's Nest

This month we are highlighting the Robin's Nest Card Kits and Tag Kits which are 20% off (yay!). Just use the promo code: cardkitpromo when placing an order. Because I am on the layout team and not so much a card maker, I challenged myself to use the card kit (the whole thing) to create something fun and . . . not a card - lol. Here's what I came up with; what do you think? I just want to show you how much you can do with a card kit. Don't limit yourself!

I started with the Roses Card Kit which you can find here. I also used the following items:
Wedding Tag Kit (a few items)
Flame Dew Drops (red ones)
Flame Clippies (the king of hearts)
Heartfelt Creations Posey Patch Flowers Stamp and Die Set

So, other than those items I used some bits and pieces of embellishments and scraps of black cardstock . . . that's it!

I started by attaching the envelopes that come with the card kit in a W or mountain formation. I had an envelope flap left over, so I sandwiched it between two of the cards from the kit to create a front cover for my mini and then adhered the third card to the last envelope to create a back cover:

Then I pulled out the pieces of my card kit and turned it into a mini album. I created the front flower using the Heartfelt Creations stamp and die set (what a fun idea - you stamp first and then cut out the stamped images with a die - no fussy cutting!). Here are some pictures of that process:

Here are some pictures of the finished product:

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Don't forget to check out The Robin's Nest website and pick-up your card kits and tag kits this month while they are on sale!


  1. Wendy this is just exquisite, the flower you created is stunning and I love the wonderful dimension of all your elements combined. xx
