Envelope Mini Album Series

Hi Guys,

You've probably been wondering where I've been.  Well, let me tell you.  I've come across an amazing blog by Kathy Orta called Paper Phenomenon.  She is awesome.  I love her tutorials.  I wanted to try something new this year for christmas.  So I decided to make a build a page album for my Sister-In-Law and her family.  They came her to visit us for the first time in July and I used all the photos that were taken and applied them to my album.  I know she's not a follower so I'm okay to share my photos with you. 

This first photo is the front cover of the album.  Keep in mind you can use what ever you want.  I chose to use a 5 1/2 x 8 clipboard from Studio 18 that I purchased from Michael's.  It also came with a memo pad and pen, but I didn't have any use for either one of them. 



This second photo is the beginning of my album




This photo is what the album looks like from the side.


Finally, the next few photos are just some ideas of what you can do with your album.


If you are interested in learning how to make this album, please visit Paper Phonomenon.  I am so excited to send this album off and it will arrive to them just in time for Christmas........

Once again please feel free to leave comments.  I look forward to sharing more of these albums with you in the future.  Have a blessed evening.
