Epic Day envelope album





Today is my downline Donna’s birthday but I can’t show you her card, because I promised to show you the envelope album from my Epic Day of Crafting – and here it is.

I’ve shown this fab project to lots of people – many of whom have assumed that you can buy these books from Stampin’ Up!® But no, it’s made entirely from scratch. The covers are made from chipboard covered in Designer Series Paper, and the pages are made from envelopes, joined together and decorated.  It’s closed together with very slim magnets. It’s very ingenious.

The design is adapted from one I made on Monica Gale’s Paperie Treat and she kindly gave me permission to use it at my workshop. Everyone loved it! And I loved how some people used different papers from the pack to create a totally different look to the project. 

Stamps: Off the Grid, Morning Post Alphabet, various others as required
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Vellum
Paper: Epic Day
Ink: Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Accessories: Autumn Leaves die, Polka Dots embossing folder, Woodgrain embossing folder,  Naturals buttons, Linen Thread, Cute Clips, Crochet Trim, border punches, Apothecary Accents framelits

Meanwhile, happy birthday, Donna!
