CTMH Spring/Summer Idea Book Rose Blossom's Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to the Spring/Summer Idea Book blog hop hosted by the Rose Blossom's Team

If you just came from the talented Tammie's blog you are on the right path.  Hop along with us to see loads of inspiration from this talented team!  We are so happy you joined us!

For this blog hop I constructed a Envelope Mini Album from scratch using the beautiful Skylark paper pack. The main components of this album are: Chipboard, Kraft Cardstock, Skylark Paper pack (CTMH), Skylark Dimensional Elements (CTMH) and Liquid Glass (CTMH).  

The binding method used on this album is "Stack the Deck + One".  There are a total of 7 pages with envelopes slots on each side to tuck in another area to journal or place photos.  (I can't wait to put black and white pictures of our family in this!!)  This was super fun to make!  

YouTube tutorials I used are: (you may need to copy and paste into url)

  5. It appears that you and Skylark hit it off quite well! This is really a great little project. Thanks for sharing those links. One thing I've always loved about your work is your knack for adding the perfect little details here and there. Keep it up Kim .... you inspire us!

  9. My vintage-loving Krafty heart loves this project. I am anxious to check those videos. The envelope mini intrigues me. You showcased Skylark in a beautiful, artistic way. So many sweet, little details.

  10. Awesome album!! Gonna try this :). Question - how did you prepare the envelopes? Did you seal them and then cut an opening??

    1. Hi Caroline, I cut them from kraft card stock but kraft envelopes would work too....if you are using the same binding method cut about an 1/8 inch off on both sides. Have fun creating it and thanks for stopping by!
