Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide Hop

I am so excited to be participating for the first time in this hop!  We are showcasing new product from our Holiday Gift Guide which is available TODAY - view the guide online by clicking the link at the side or contact me to get your copy! 

I have put together an envelope mini album that I originally thought I would use to store Christmas gift tags, but have decided it is too pretty and plan to add some photos instead!  The envelopes were made with Kraft card stock and Liquid Glass, the cover is Kraft c/s as well.  After assembling the envelopes,  I bound them all together using my Zutter (had to brush the dust off that puppy!!)  Then the fun part - decorating with the gorgeous papers from our Sparkle and Shine paper collection.  I just love the prints and the shimmer of the silver in some of the papers - just a note though, the silver doesn't take ink well as you may notice with one of my stamped images.  Here are the pics of what I made, starting with the cover:

 I added a small Sparkle Clear Flourish as well as a corduroy flower from our Ruby Mini Medley Collection and a bit of organza ribbon to tie on the binding.  Some twine from our Frosted Card Making kit tied in a bow holds the mini album together.  Here are the inside pages:
 Notice the stamped image in the top left corner of the silver houndstooth - the silver resists the ink!
 Zip Strips from the tops of our papers are great for embellishing.....don't throw them away.  Tree image is from the stamp set from our Frosted Card Making kit, stamped with Slate ink.
 Added a little sparkle with our Ruby Shimmer Trim....
 Back cover.  All paper was sponge distressed with Ruby ink before adhering.
 View of the completed album from above.  Lots of room for photos and space to tuck more inside, or add mementos, notes, etc.
If you  would like the template for the envelope and cover, let me know.  I'd be happy to send it to you!!
