Envelope Mini Albums

Wendy posted a very cool envelope album tutorial on the ScrapCity blog. I really like the idea, so I decided to make one for Emily and Jessica.

This is the front of Emily's. I added one of the crocheted flowers that she made for me!! The ribbon just slides off, and the album can then be opened.

This is the inside. I left it undecorated, because I knew that the girls would want to decorate the albums themselves!

This is the backside of the mini album.

Here is the front of Jessica's. I added some Prima Sprites with a button center. Once again, the ribbon just slides off.

This is the inside of Jessica's. Using envelopes is such a great idea, because they make GREAT pocket pages!!

This is the backside. The best part about these albums is that I used all paper scraps to create them! I just patched pieces of paper together, and themed them in their favorite colors. The girls really liked them, and they're trying to decide what to use them for!

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for your kind words about Janice. I think that ScrapCity was just in a state of shock yesterday learning about her passing. She will be missed by us all very much!!

We have a very cold weekend in store for us. I hope you enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!!

I am soooo very sad about Janice - she was a big part of Scrapbook Heaven and we can't believe it! Anyone know what happened?
