Hi Friends! It's Carol here today and did you know that Ink Blot Shop has envelopes?! Well, it's true! The envelopes are Painted Sunset and Rainbow Splatter Paint and they are CUTE! As soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to do something a little different, so I made a quick mini album. I thought it would be a great idea to put together a few highlights from the school year for my daughter. I plan to give it to her on the last day of school.
The mini album was super easy to create. I used four envelopes and adhered the flap of one envelope inside of another one until all of the flaps were glued down. For the front of the mini album I used a Word document and typed School Year Highlights 2021-2022. I printed that onto some cardstock and stamped the notebook paper from the Journaling Spots stamp set over top. I also stamped that adorable girl from Little School onto some kraft cardstock and fussy cut both elements and added them to the front cover. Once you flip it open, I added a school photo onto a tag that I ink blended with the Pixel Grid stencil. In the other pocket, I added a project that she completed at school where she wrote things about herself and what she likes. I think it will be cute for her to look back on this a few years from now to see what she wrote.
The next page has another photo and little journaling. Nothing fancy here, but you'll see that the pattern from the Rainbow Splatter Paint envelopes makes an amazing backdrop for these elements. The last pockets have her Spring photo and it's adhered the same as the other school photo to show some consistency. And the last pocket has a Thank You card from her teacher. Just another small sentimental touch that I think she'll love. I also ran some twine behind the notebook paper on the cover and wrapped it around the album and tied a bow to keep the album closed.
This project was so fun and really didn't take much time at all. I hope you'll give it a try or at a minimum, get yourself a set of these incredible envelopes to use for your cards. Your recipients will LOVE it!
