Twelve Month Envelope Mini Album

Pushing the envelope...

~enjoy the journey~ 
What can you make with a few envelopes, some recycled cardboard box, some pretty seasonal paper, and a little imagination? o.k., and add time to that!! A pretty album with a page with pull out tabs for each month of the year.

~ each pull out has a different season and theme, all pulled together in one album ~

A while back, I won a $10.00 gift certificate from The Memory Nest and picked Cards for all Season bundle ~ which gave me this idea for my album. In it, there were pretty paper with each season written on it and a lovely print to go along for that season...light bulb went on!! DCWV papers are soooo fun to work with.

Mmm, an album for 2014, an entire years journey in photographs, journaling, whatever your heart desires...setting goals? or perhaps just a cute way to keep track of a child's growth. What a keeper!!

The album cover is cut from a recycled cardboard box, covered in a heavier pale blue paper. Layering up with foam dimensional stickers adds depth. Looped a blue ribbon through the scalloped edges, added pearl flower in opposite corners along with baby pink pearls.

I had these 3D stickers in my stash for some time now, and the colors went very well with this little project, adding character and charm.

I thought the rubber boots were so cute! Couldn't leave them out of the picture ;)

Brrrr it's cold outside, and what is a Canadian winter without hockey? eh?

All girly in pink, lace and frills ~ and a touch of bling.
...Valentine's Day, all hearts and flowers?

Saint Patty's Day and Easter Chicks come marching in style!

 April Showers Brings May Flowers?

When the tabs are pulled out, you can see how a little album turns into a big page!

Lace punch edging and adding the black to make the pages pop.

Summer colors ~ ice cream and Popsicles!

... makes me think of the green grass, summer days in the sun.

Blue skies

School time ~ fall is in the air.

Pumpkins, bats, witches and hats!!

Sweater time, cooler weather time..

Ho Ho Ho
Now you can look back on an entire year 
and Celebrate!

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!
May Santa bring much to play
with in your craft room!
but most of all
peace and love.
