9th Day of Christmas: "Don't Open Until Christmas" Envelope Scrapbook

Last Thursday was my Scrappy Thursday class for my Scrapbook Club members.  Club members enjoy this perk as part of their club benefits, making a Mini Album every other month.

This month we made this adorable Christmas Envelope Scrapbook.


I saw this type of scrapbook posted my someone on SCS and knew my club members would enjoy making one for themselves.

All it takes is three envelopes adhered together and then decorate as desired.  Here some pictures of the inside.




Supplies used:  Winter Post stamp set, Creamy Caramel & Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, Riding Hood Red, Kraft & Chocolate Chip Cardstock.  Kraft Medium Envelopes, Curly Label, 1-3/4", 1-3/8", 3/4" circle punches, Designer Label Punch, Gold Brads and Rope from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Enjoy ~ Dawn O HERE!

Scrappy Thursday - Family Mini Scrapbook

Wow - this has been a busy week.  All of my club classes fell in the same week.

For this month's Hedgehog Scrapbook Club project, members got to make this adorable mini album.  I based it off of the one I did at the Stampin' Up! Founder's Circle event - see here.  But sized it down to use 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock instead of 12 x 12.


This scrapbook features one of Stampin' Up!'s new Designer Series Paper, Murfield #112466.  Coordinating Colors are Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss & Very Vanilla.  Along with the Hostess Level one stamp set - Live Like You Mean It, various punches and the new In-Color Ribbon (Pacific Point).





I just love this little mini scrapbook.  So quick and easy, but fun to open and reveal your family pictures!


Here's a close up of the cover that features the Naturally Serif Alphabet Die (to be used with the Big Shot Sizzix machine).  I love this alphabet!  You get both upper and lower case.  So you'll never run out of your favorite letters in any color you desire!
