I want to finally share this mini album I have been making . It took me quite some time because blue is not really my colour to work with . But the person I made it for loves blue and butterflies . So this is the resultof my efforts :
The album is made with 6 standard size white envelopes (6 by 2,8 inches or 15 by 11 cm ) and according to the stack the deck principle ( Laura Dennison from The Paper Trail ) . I have used a brown ink pad to distress the edges and I have used my Rose punch , little butterfly punch , border punches , my butterfly die from Cottage Cutz , my MFT Flourish die , my Quinn Flourish from Memory Box ( thank you Kathy for your information ! Another package is on its way ! ), lace and ribbon , pearls and rhinestones .
This is the cover seen from sideways : Some jewels and a little note pad and a wooden heart . The cover is made from 3 peaces of strong package material ( boxes ) , cut to size , a little bigger than the envelopes .
This is how my album looks when opened :
And the next pages : with a crocheted flower, which reminds me I should make some more . There is place to hold some notelets .
The left side opens up , and offers more place for pictures or journaling.
Cottage Cutz butterflies , so nice to work with , very delicate .
And as you see each rounded flap is actually a take out card for pictures
Each envelope also contains an extra mat, cut with decorative scissors.
