Wow, nothing like letting life
In my last post, I had intended
to share a project I had recently created,
but did not get it posted
as I intended.
So finally here it is.....
A Romantic Envelope Album
I had watched a video by the uber talented
on how to create journals
with just about anything ,
and in any style.
One, just happened to be
created with envelopes.
So I put several sizes of these
envelope journals together
and chose to use one as a romantic album.
For the cover, I used a cereal box.
In creating the pages, I left some of the envelope
openings in tact, using them to tuck away tags, with charm dangles that coordinated with the page.
I added handmade embellishments,
including flowers & cabochon topped paper clips
throughout the album, I also added tags & tag sleeves,
and used seam binding for the closure.

This was a gift made for someone
that is very special to me,
so a lot of my heart was in the details.
Really a fairly easy project to create, and did I mention I had never created ANY journal or album like this before?
Hope you enjoy.
Stay tuned, as I have finally learned
the basics of my webcam, and I am planning to do
a video, step by step, on how to create
an album/journal with envelopes.
Until next time,
