Crafy Queens Mini Album!!

Eve from Crafty Queens had a tutorial in the 3rd issue of Crafting Ireland starting on page 31! I decided to give it a go yesterday & spent nearly the whole afternoon making & decorating it! Unfortunately I was too dim to follow Eve's directions for the pages so came up with my own solution & used DL envelopes!!
I then spen the day today going through years of photos to print off for my mini album & it is now finished!!
Here it is!

I just love this, I used my Basic Grey Sultry papers that I haven't been able to bring myself to use on cards. Now I can look at them forever!!
Not only am I going to Jackie Mooney's workshop on the 21st of this month, I will also be going to my first ever scrapbooking class run by Eve from Crafty Queens so I am very excited about both & feeling very much like a lady of leisure lol!!

Here is my tutorial for the DL envelope pages for the mini album!!
Photobucket
*Seal 2 DL envelopes (2 envelopes make 1 page & 1 page holds 10 photos, 2 on the actual page & 8 on the 3 tag's)

Photobucket
Cut 3 of the ends of the envelopes off!

Photobucket
Score & fold 1 open end on each of the envelopes

Photobucket
Turn the envelopes so that the folded ends are furthest apart & lay the envelope that still has the closed end on top & the envelope with both ends opened on the bottom & then stick them both together!
Before you stick both together you need to think about how you are going to stick them into your album. I used a sheet of A4 light cardstock & scored it so I had 4 raised strips of about 1 inch & in between them was a small strip I could put DS tape on. I stuck each of the 4 strips in between the 2 envelopes & then stuck the rest of the envelopes!! I hope that makes sense?!?!

Next you need to make your tags & decorate the panels of your envelope pages!!
