Winner! & Envelopes Mini Album with Butterfly Shaped Hinges!

I found the tutorial for this lovely album over at The Paper Trail way back in November, and I finally got around to making it. This was so much fun and easy! To think I made it with a package of envelopes and a few pieces of paper and card stock all from the dollar store.

All the papers have a pretty glitter to it which just is not showing up in the pictures. No matter what I did, I just could not get good shots of the album.

The butterflies were all cut with the Cricut Sernade Cartridge.

Each page has two tags and the a pull out page for photos.

Challenges I will enter the album in are:

Getting Cricky with K Andrew Designs: Simply Sunday Challenge

Crop Stop Challenge #10: Spring is in the air.

For this weeks challenge you are to use Butterflies and flowers.

Now on to the fun stuff!
