Spring Mini!

Greetings and of course we wanted to let you know we are not playing any April Fools jokes on you today!  ha!

This week we are welcoming Spring here on the blog and have some wonderful projects to share with you featuring our Color Vellum Quotes.  We'll be showcasing these all month long and Jen is here today to kick off April with a wonderful project. 


Hi there, Jen here today hosting the blog on this beautiful Sunday!

I have a new mini album to share with you! I made this colorful Spring themed album using policy envelopes and a Cinch binding machine. 

I decorated the album with the new Quick Quotes paper line called One Fine Day. The title page contains a color vellum quote that was attached with brads on one end and a little bit of adhesive that was applied under the darker colors of the vellum so that it wouldn’t show through. I also cut down the first envelope and punched the edge with a decorative punch, then added a tag.

Throughout the album, I used Quick Quotes Paper Strips from the One Fine Day collection. I added each one towards the top of the page so that a portion could be seen sticking out. Each Paper Strip was positioned so that they could all be seen when the album was closed.

The decorative paper strips have quotes and different images and made this album come together quickly.

Finally, when all of the envelopes had been decorated, I used my Cinch binding machine to punch holes and attach the spiral binding. The tags were decorated with ribbons, rubons, and bling and were inserted into the opening of each of the envelopes.

Happy Spring everyone!!!
