In a beautiful little scrapbook album made simply from 5 Envelopes and a piece of card stock – decorate as wished, add photos and you have one cute and very affordable-to-make keepsake…
You have the front and back covers to decorate with patterned papers and embellishments PLUS there are 10 pages inside too…and you also have 5 pockets into which you can slide more pages or mementos of a trip…
Please read on for details on how I made it plus a link to my free tutorial and this week’s blog candy…
Here is the front cover…
But you can’t really get a good look at what it really looks like from that, so here is a side view showing you the pages and tabs that you use to pull out the 5 inserts…
Isn’t it cute? I used patterned papers from Springtime Vintage DSP that you can find on pg 15 of the Occasions Mini Catalog to decorate my covers & pages and bound it using the new beautiful Baja Breeze Seam Binding featured on pg 16.
The envelopes that I used to make the pages are Medium Crumb Cake Envelopes and they double up as pockets to hold mementos of trips or events such as a program or a ticket…but I decided to slide 5 more pages into mine and made ribbon tabs so that they can be pulled out easily – I used Seam Binding and Twill Tape and taped on a ribbon loop underneath my decorative papers so that the ends are hidden from view…
Two of my sliding inserts were made using the Top Note Die – this is one of them…
And the other three are rectangular pages like this one…again, it is decorated using beautiful paper from Springtime Vintage…love those patterns…
And I used lots of little embellishments on my pages too including Pearls, stamped Sentiments, the new Vanilla Ribbon Rosettes, various punched shapes and made butterflies using my Big Shot and Beautiful Butterflies Die – I added texture to these butterflies using various Embossing Folders which gives them a really beautiful look, as you can see from my first page below…
I am delighted with how my album came out and now I just need to add photos…

How adorable and functional, what a great little gift for a new grandparent or parent for that matter. Those first cute pics would be stunning in it.
Thanks for you work and sharing,those of us that need inspiration and help with ideas appreciate you.
SIT, (Stamp It UP)
This is absolutely darling! I can see so many uses for it – a holiday album, a vacation album, a graduation album. Thanks for sharing!
Very pretty. Love your embellishing and pull-outs. Thanks for the tutorial and blog candy chance.
This is so neat! I love the colors! I gotta keep this short as I wasnt to go check out your directions to see if I can really do this before I get too excited over it! I have a friend who is going on a cruise through the Panama Canal and this would be so much fun for her – rather than just scrap book pages which she says she will also make but rarely gets them done. Also, a good excuse for me to get that butterfly stuff! I hadn’t really noticed that paper either! The rosettes I just ordered so I am well on my way! Thanks for sharing such a fun project.
Oh My Gosh! i love love love this:)
my fingers and toes are double crossed!!!
This is such a pretty and well-done album. I love the elegance of the DSP. Thank you for sharing and for the blog candy opportunity.
That album is adorable!! Design, colours, layout – everything!
Hi Sarah! I just discovered your blog and love it! You have some amazing ideas and tutorials. Can’t wait to try this scrapbook as well as the pincushion jar. Thanks for sharing your creativity!
It is very cute! Thanks for posting the tutorial!
It turned out so pretty and I really like the colors
The idea of having a place to put ticket stubs, receipts, and all of those great extras from vacation is just what most of us need. Great project!!!
Wow this is gorgeous. You are so creative and so generous to share your wonderful project and tutorials with us. I love the colours and the butterflies. Now that I’ve seen this DP “in action” I will have to get some for myself.
I’ve always loved envelope albums and have been keen to make one myself. You’ve taken it to a whole new level with this one. Gorgeous.
I love the paper and all the extra detail of the seam binding, embellishments and best of all, the shaped sliding inserts with the ribbon tabs.
Thanks for your generosity in sharing the tutorial. Can’t wait to try it out.
I just recently discovered your blog and after seeing this stunning keepsake, I am SOOOO glad I did! This is just beautiful. I can’t wait to try one on my own. That designer paper just made its way to the top of my “gotta have it” list. Thanks for sharing your tutorial. I love when creative artists are willing to share with the rest of us!!
I love this!!! Thanks so much for providing the instructions. I am going to try to make one, too. :)

This is fantastic. I can see this idea being used with the inserts being used for each month of a birthday calendar. Thanks heaps for the inspiration AND the wonderful tutorial.
I love this project. Can’t wait to try it. It’s less intimidating than a complete albumn. Thanks for sharing.
