Valentines Envelope Mini

Hi Everyone, Beth here from thunderbirdlindybydesign.  Today I wanted to share with you a mini album I made out of envelopes.  Supplies you will need will be 6 a2 envelopes, cardstock, any embellishements you want to add, I used K&Co valentine die cuts, my E2, and my Gypsy, and ribbon.  Start with the first envelope and leave the flap unsealed.  Cut a 4.5"x5" piece of cardstock and adhere to first envelope, under the flap.

Then using Victorian Romance Cartridge, I cut the heart and it's layer at approx 3 3/8".  I added that to the flap.  I also cut Be Mine for the Martha Stewart Seasonal cake and added to the top of the heart.

For the other 5 envelopes, I sealed the flap, and then cut a small strip off of one side.  This creates a pocket on the other 5 envelopes.  I then cut 11 remaining pieces of cardstock, 4 x 5.5" and attached them to the back of the first envelope, and the front and back of the remaining 5 envelopes.

On each page I pop dotted the K&Co. die cuts.  For 3 of the pockets, I cut  from Sophie cart 2 doilies at 5.10" tall, and from Mother's Day 2010, I cut another doily at 5.10" tall.  I then hid contours on all the doilies except for the main cut around the outside, so I would have something to adhere the doilies to, to make them more stable.

Here is the finished album.  When all the pages were done, I bound it using a Bind It All, and added ribbon to the cover.

It's pretty simple, I left it that way because I am not sure what pics I want to use on the opposite pages.
Until next time, and thanks Pam for having me as a guest designer on The Bug Bytes.
