Designing With 7 Gypsies at Flamingo Scraps

Hope all is doing well here at the flock today!! This week I decided to do a mini album using 7 Gypsies Avignon paper and using business size envelopes #10 (Size 4 1/8” X9 ½”) to create with. I have seen many different versions of this envelope mini. So, I did mine the way I wanted and changed it up a bit. I did not cut any of the envelopes anywhere else except for about a ¼ inch off of the top.
I decided to try some Brushed Sage Distress Ink instead of using my regular Brushed Corduroy or Vintage Photo. I liked it but, I think I will go back to my usual. LOL I also used washers as you will see in the photos to reinforce the binding. I also added some paper to them…because they seemed a bit to flimsy. Hope you like my mini as much as I had fun making it.
