Envelope Album

Check out this easy to make
Envelope Album...


opened up

I used 6 envelopes (sealed each flap to the back of the next envelope), a cover and decorated inserts in each envelope.
I can't decide what I want to do with my album... I might use it to hold photos of my boys, or as a purse organizer (coupons, receipts, to do list, etc...). I might even use it as one of those budget organizers - where you put your allotted cash into each envelope. I make one out of smaller envelopes to hold business cards.
 So many possibilties and so easy to make!

MARCH WORKSHOP: All About Alphabets!

The possibilities are endless when it comes to using Close To My Heart's Clear Stamps. Their alphabets are what first caught my attention when I was checking out their products, and they are still one of my favorite items. At this workshop, we are going to make wonderfully personalized gifts and cards using some of CTMH's beautiful alphabet stamps.

As many of my friends know, I have this obsession about rocks. For years I had been wanting to find a way to put words and verses on rocks - CTMH held the answer. It is so easy to put YOUR MESSAGE on a rock using Staz-on ink and CTMH's clear stamps. At this workshop, you will put your own favorite word on a rock. I will be showing you some indispensable secrets that will ensure your success for this project. Practice with this little project, then you can graduate up to putting entire verses and sayings on your rocks.

This simple and elegant card was made using the new Bohemian Alphabet set. That special friend will feel so treasured when they receive this personal card.

Our block style Baroque Alphabet set is perfect for this style of card. You can change up the colors and personalize it for many occasions. Words like BABY, LOVE, HOPE, HOME, NOEL, are all possibilities.

My alphabet stamps are used to personalize so many things around our house. We have personalized birthday gifts (tool boxes, shovel handles, gift bags) to make them extra special. Each guest at the workshop will be able to personalize a canvas bag/backpack. I have many colors available.

Be sure to reserve your space at my workshop!
