A little while ago I attended a scrapbooking retreat with my UKS house-mates (the Green Buttons) down near Birmingham and had a fabulous time. There was plenty of chocolate, chat and creativity as well as a few challenges and some classes. I prepared a class too, which I called my "Teeny Tiny Envelope Album". It was made from those tiny kraft money envelopes you can buy for wage slips or lunch money or whatever, but can just as easily be made with larger envelopes too!
Here are some of the albums completed that weekend - each made unique thanks to different patterned papers, photos, ribbons and embellishments. I made one that weekend too ... using my September Counterfeit Kit ... to record No.3 Child's school music trip to Normandy this summer.
The letters on the front cover have been heat embossed with PSE's "Woven Tapestry" - a lovely textural finish. Inside the cover there is a concertina of six money envelopes, each containing a tag.
The way that it's folded you can "read" it like a book and then turn it around to "read" the other side.
There's plenty of room for lots of small photos and even more space for journalling or extra photos on the tags! Just as well because her camera had about 100 photos from the 4 days! I managed to include 19 in her mini-book.
This would also make a handy little "brag" book for inside a handbag - it measures around 4½" x 3" and the photos are all nicely protected by the cover.
And I'm still playing along with ATDML's Thirsty Thursdays - so this will be for I for Interactive (and inked?). I'll be back this weekend with K for Kit, Kraft & Kaisercraft as I'm just about ready to share my JYC prep!
