Envelope Album - Pink Paisley: Paige Evans Horizon

Hello, friends!

I have another project to share with you all. I have made a mini album using A2-sized envelopes. This was so much fun to put together. I love how colorful this turned out! I have to say a special thank you to my friend Kristianne for sending me some of her Horizon handmade embellishments. She makes the most beautiful embellishments and she totally spoiled me with these goodies! You guys have to follow her on Instagram and YouTube!

To make this album, I first created 8 A2 (4.25" x 5.5") envelopes using the Martha Stewart scoring board. Once assembled, I took the first envelope and adhered the back of the 2nd envelope's flap inside the first envelope. Next, I glued the 3rd envelope's flap inside the 2nd one... repeat until you have inserted and glued down all 7 flaps. I know, this sounds all confusing, so here is a link to a tutorial that I found on YouTube. There will be one flap leftover at the end, which is the flap from the first envelope. I wrapped that around the whole book to create the spine. Instead of adhering the flap to the last envelope, I have decided to make the album look like a little clutch and added an elastic to keep it closed.

This album will be a gift for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. She is always asking me to print out photos for her, so I've made her this album with lots of family photos. The first envelope even stores a Mother's Day card.

Here are some photos:

Thank you so much for stopping by! Here is a Youtube link to a flip-through of the album. I hope you enjoyed today's project share!!!

Take good care!

Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop and happy  9th birthday, PPP!  Today, I’m sharing a birthday card and a gift card holder that I made using dies and stencils from the new Birthday Release.  For my card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock that I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink on it. I then took a scrap of white cardstock and used finger daubers to ink blend Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I sprayed water, splattered white ink, and cut the rainbow colored panel with the WISH die. I also cut the flame from the Birthday Mug Addition Dies and ink blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.  Next, I stamped the sentiments with black ink then foam mounted WISH and the flame on the card panel. I also added some pearls for inter

Pretty Pink Posh March 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop! For my card, I started with a 4.5” square white cardstock and I ink blended through the Layered Carrots Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks.  Layer A: Dried Marigold Layer B: Spiced Marmalade Layer C: Twisted Citron I then matted this stenciled panel on a 5” square cardstock that I ink blended with Spiced Marmalade. For added interest, I sprayed this larger panel with water that has a bit of white ink.  Next, I cut the dies from the Winter Mug Dies and the new Easter Mug Additions Dies in white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and Distress Oxide Inks. The blue bunny mug also got a print from the Mini Grid Stencil . Before foam mounting the mug, I placed a sheet of vellum to soften the carrot background and I also stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Stazon ink.  Here are the Copic markers I used for the mini eggs: BG70, R00, V000, Y11, YG61, YR000 I embellished the card with Pi
