For today's project I decided to change it up quite a bit and created a mini album with the fabulous "It's a Sara Thing" April Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up! I had been wanting to make a memory book with envelope pockets for quite some time now. This month's Paper Pumpkin Kit provided me with the most perfect opportunity to do so. I utilized my Stampin' Up! scoring tool and some basic black cardstock to create the bones of my album. I then sliced off the tops of 5 envelopes from the April kit with my paper trimmer. With the use of my Stampin' Up! Fast Fuse adhesive this book then came together quite quickly. I do not have a tutorial to share with you today. Saying that, if you are interested in learning how to create today's project, feel free to message me or leave me a comment below. If there is enough interest I would love to create a tutorial for you all. Below you will be able to view all of the mini layouts I created. Our little daughter is growing up way too fast! I thought it would be nice to be able to glance back at her yearly photos from the past 6 years. This mini album is now a precious keepsake that I will keep close to my heart forever.
Did you notice the cute envelope pockets here? How could you miss them right? I love the fact that you can pull the matted pictures out of the pockets and hold them in your hands. It's almost as if the nature of this tactile interaction vivifies one's memories.
What do you think of today's project? Do you love it as much as I do? I am kinda bias, as it is full of my most favourite pictures of our most sweetest baby girl. This month's Paper Pumpkin Kit was originally designed for you to create 12 cards. Today's hop is all about showing alternate ways in which you can use this fabulous kit!
