May 20 - Envelope Album

Yep, you read it right. I'm cheating to get caught up. I finally realized that I just don't have enough time to do enough projects to get back to posting every day, so I'm skipping ahead to today (so sorry about that!) SO...
it's May 20th, and I have a fun new project I've been working on!

I've been creating some envelope albums (or journals if you choose it to be) and they are FUN, let me tell you. The one to the right has 4 envelopes that I'm going to use to hold my photos when I go to crops - I NEVER have a great way to transport those things, but now I do! (YAY!)

I have one available in the etsy store, and will be adding a few more colors, styles, etc. in the next few days - these are fun to mix in with pages made out of anything!

Envelope Album

  • Envelopes in any size or color (or mix them up - GET CREATIVE!)
  • Bind-it-All
  • Crochet Flower (Fancy Pants)
  • Fancy Brad
  • Rhinestones (Prima)
  • Rubons (Basic Grey)
  • Transparencies (My Minds Eye & Hambly)
  • Scalloped Circle sticker (Stampin' Up! - retired)
  • Pearls (Kaiser)
  • Zots (Therm O Web)

1- Using your Bind-It-All bind your 4 envelopes together, with the flaps to the front of the book.
2- Decorate your the front flap using the bling, pearls, brad and a flower
3- Add your photo and the sticker frame
4- Layer your transparencies and adhere with Zots
5- Rub on your rub-on letters
6- Add your pearls
7- Open up the envelopes and fill them up!

Now that is a very cool idea Holly! I love the envelope album, especially with your idea of using it to transport photos! Fabulous!
