I have created a Mini Album Using envelopes & Chelsea Garden B&T paper
& the coordinating Compliments...
This paper collection is an all time favorite ~ I just can not stop using it!
Chelsea Gardens & Coordinating Complements
This is a Super fast project you can complete in just a couple of hours as I used 2 sheets
of patterned Paper & 2 sheets of cardstock ~ I just love that our cardstock is now 2 tone ~ it has a lighter shade on the back... makes matching easy!
I just LOVE the 2 toned cardstock... one side lighter that the other
you can never go wrong with matching
We start with the creation of an Envelope Album
Check out my video on how to create a basic Album
Now for the Creative & Fun stuff... Let's decorate it!
Start with attaching the paper cut to 1/4 inch smaller than the envelope ~ I used a total of 2 sheets of patterned paper & 2 sheets of Cardstock to decorate the album... as well as the zip strips from the patterned paper.

Now to add Complements ~ these are great stickers & Chip board pieces that go with the paper collection ~ and make creating easy... great for a beginner or if you just need a fast project to complete!
