I"m thrilled with this mini album I just finished for my niece's birthday. I learned the envelope mini from Laura Denison, you can learn how to do it HERE on her blog, The Paper Trail.
It is made with six regular #10 envelopes. There are pockets on each side that holds a tag for pictures and journaling.
I used retired product in this (I'm actually putting a dent in all the paper packs I've hoarded for so long!) The paper packs used were Key to My Heart and Perfect Day.
I'm thrilled with the flower, bud, leaves and vine I made out of coffee filters! I found this Ruffled Flower Tutorial HERE from Lisa's blog, What a Beautiful Mess. I punched out scalloped circles from a coffee filter then colored them with Close to My Heart's Exclusive Inks Markers in Tulip and Sunny Yellow. Next I then sprayed them with water, the colors blended beautifully! The leaves were colored with New England Ivy and Juniper. The center of the flower is made with a Licorice Opaque and Red Sparkles.
Here's just another look at a couple pages.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a happy, crafty day!
