This one was really fun to create. I saw a layout that Paige Evans created with envelopes and it inspired me to put my own spin on it.
I began my layout with a white piece of card stock for my background trimmed down to 11.5 inches wide by 11.5 inches long. I adhered it to a 12X12 piece of patterned paper and machine stitched about a 1/4 inch from the outside edge.
I used my water-colour paints and watercolored in some matching colors that would coordinate with the patterned papers on my layout. I have this awesome mini envelope paper punch and went ahead and punched out 15 envelopes I then put them in a row of 3 envelopes across by a column of 5 down and then folded and glued them to the white card stock.
I covered my photo and envelopes and splattered some pink water-colour paint and some black indian ink and let it dry.
Next I began embellishing.
I added some heart stickers and two of the Hashtag Boy Flair Buttons
and tucked them inside the envelopes and then I added some photos that I matted on some patterned paper (all the papers are from the Pinkfresh Studio Up In The Clouds Collection) and punched some circles and added a Summer Gold Foil Flair Button. I am loving the gold flair at the moment.
Finally, I added my title of alpha stickers and a die cut word that I cut out of gold paper. Here are a few more closeups.
