Envelope Challenge!

I have been slowly getting my scrapping mojo back, and a good challenge always helps me!  I was really interested to see this envelope challenge from Lessology.  I have to say, I got a lot of inspiration from folks who had already posted their creations, but I really wanted to make the envelopes the center of my project.  And, of course, continue my quest to use my stash!  Ultimately, I decided to use a bunch of junk mail envelopes - the kind with the plastic windows - as the base for a minialbum.  I also came across a heavy duty envelope that I had received some photos in and thought it would make and ideal case for the minialbum.

 I cut one end off each envelope and the envelopes with pp from Cosmo Cricket, preserving the windows.  I created a tag to fit into each envelope.  I added some canvas pennants from Maya Road as additional pages and created covers from felt.

I covered the large envelope with additional pp and used buttons and bakers twine to created a clasp.

Thanks to Lessology and Gauche Alchemy for the inspiration!

Have a great day!


Hey, remember me?

Yup, it has been a long time, but I am back!

Since my last post we have:

Changed jobs (both me and Jeff)
Moved to North Carolina
Changed schools (kids)
Celebrated Noah's 6th birthday
Been back to Cape Cod for vacation
Experienced our first copperhead, who bit Cassie in the muzzle (she is ok now)

And probably a few more things, but those seem like the highlights!
