envelope scrapbook

Here is a great project from Paula Goff.
I really enjoyed putting this together as it makes up quite quickly providing you can decide on which designer paper to use!!
I am a certified paper collector - I treasure my beautiful papers and never want to cut them up! Anyway, I decided on using my pack of delicate dots designer paper from the SAB mini catalogue. Because I had more than one package, I was able to bring myself to breaking one open. Sad isn't it?
It was worth it - this little scrapbook is made from 3 business size envelopes, apricot appeal cardstock, delicate dots designer paper and one kiwi kiss corduroy button. When you pull on the tabs of each envelope you will find a spot to journal or photos or both!
This would make a great brag book for new grandmothers - waving to my sister - as you could carry it in your purse or backpack quite nicely.

I hope you have enjoyed this, and have a great day!

all materials are from Stampin' Up!

** I have since added detailed instructions and additional photo of the inside hinges -
see my Mar. 23 posts - thanks!

This is awesome!
Would you mind posting the original size of the apricot appeal cardstock and where you scored it as I would
like to copy this sample for my next card making group!
Thanks so much,
Jennifer, Calgary

This is wonderful...I, too, would love a little more direction so I can give it a shot. I know what you mean about the paper...I save every little scrap because you never know when you might be able to use it. tfs
