Friday Scrapbook Layouts - A Mini Album

Hi friends!  Carolyn  here for ScrapBook Blessings Club to share with you Friday's Scrapbook Layout, a Envelope Mini Album .

First, I have my tip of the day for you.... For this project, I advise you have plenty of envelopes of the size needed, on hand.  And plenty of patience creating the project.

Onto today's Mini-album...

 Envelope Mini-Album

Here's what is needed :
  • Envelopes (any size you would like to use) I used approx. 5x7 (6)
  • strong adhesive
  • matching card stock
  • embellishments of your choice
  • Silhouette Cameo and cut files of your choice
  • ribbon
  • pop-dots or foam tape
Here is the video from

  • First select the envelopes you would like to use for your mini-album
  • Follow the video above on how to place the envelopes (this is where I ended up using several sets of envelopes to arrive at my final project.

First 2 pages of Mini-album

Prior to putting the envelopes together, I used my trimmer and trimmed off a sliver at end of each envelope creating a pocket.  And using matching card stock, I measured and cut mats to insert into the pocket for more placement of photos, etc.I created triangular pockets for the corners for journaling tags or small photos or trinkets.

Pages 3 & 4

Using Christmas design paper and wrapping paper, I layered these two pages; and using a scalloped punch and a tab punch (at the time arrived in my mail) and created pockets for tags or photo mats

Pages 5 & 6

Pages 7 & 8

The snowflake mat I created with my Snowflake Embossalicious  embossing folder, I first inked the inside top with blue ink (Stampin! Up) and ran it thru my Big Shot embosser.  And page 8 is a library card pocket where you have two pockets to place photos, journal tags or keepsakes.

Page 9 & 10

The mat on page 9 was leftover from another project and thought, with the right stamped sentiment in the cutout, it would look great on this page.  I placed card stock first on the envelope page and than layered the cut out mat.  Page 10 is another pocket using a Martha Stewart double-scalloped punch for the edging.  

And last:

Back Cover

This is the back cover where I used vintage-type Christmas colored polka-dots design paper.  And that's it. 
I hope your enjoyed today's project.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
