Everything Scrapp'n Monthly Challenge Reveal

Everything Scrapp'n monthly challenge in honor of Earth Day was to make a mini album using junk mail envelopes.  One of our former designers Jana came up with this and has a great video on You Tube showing the technique.  See here.

I loved making this mini.  Not only is it budget friendly yet making a sturdy base for decorating but it also is practical since you have all these pockets to add tags in for more photos and journaling.  What better topic for a mini than our critters.... Perfect number of pages for each of them.  Making all the photos black and white allowed them to work together without distractions from color.

Here's my take on the challenge.


The little pocket holding a smaller tag keeping with the theme.

See how tags pull out of each page...
I used Glimmer Mist on the front of the tags.
Masking with Doodlebug Frills (ugly color blue I would never use but like the shape lol) and some old Magic Mesh that has seen better days.  Worked great!
