My life is blessed with a group of wonderful women. Some I see regularly, others not as often as I would like. Some I have only met via email and chats. These women are definitely individuals but in very important ways they are the same. They are the glue that holds together their families and their communities. They are funny, smart, optimistic and oh so incredibly creative. They find a way to see the best in me and make me laugh, laugh, laugh.
Just like me some days they need a little reminder of how much they are loved and appreciated. Syndee’s Envelope Album template is a simple, quick way to create a mini album filled with inspiration, little gifts, photos and a wish for a sunny day.
Digital Scrapbooking Supplies (see links below)
Tools – Scissors, paper cutter, bone folder, scallop punch, office hole punch, corner rounder punch
Paper – Cardstock (colored for mats, neutral for printing)
Adhesive – Narrow two sided tape, glue dots, strong glue.
Embellishments – Ribbon, glitter glue, adhesive pearls, flowers, buttons, butterfly charm
Step 1 – Open the instructions and templates included in Syndee’s Envelope Album kit (instructions in Word, templates in your Photo Editing Software). Review the simple, easy to follow instructions for creating and assembling your album.
Step 2 – When you are ready to start, rename the envelope templates. Create digital scrapbooking layouts for each envelope, inserts and front envelope covers (if desired). Note I used Scrap Girls Scrap Simple Paper and Embellishment Templates which I colored in coordinating colors.
Step 3 – Print and cut envelopes, covers, inserts and embellishments.
Step 4 – Distress all edges with ink. Decorate printed envelopes, covers and digital embellishments as desired.
Step 5 – Assemble envelopes and album according to included directions. Add ribbon closure and front envelope covers if desired.
We would love to see how you use your digital scrapbooking supplies to create your own envelope albums. Post them in the Scrap Girls Hybrid Gallery.
Live each day creatively,
