Coin Envelope Mini Album (this is so cool)

Happy Thursday, everyone! My favorite day of the week. I have another mini album to show you today. This is a kind of mini I've been wanting to make for a while, but have been a little intimidated by it. Well, it wasn't bad at all. I should have given it a try a long time ago.

This idea is in my OUTSTANDING MINI ALBUMS book, but also there is a GREAT tutorial to make it on the internet too. You can find it HERE. The instructions and helpful pictures are outstanding on CRAFTY LIFE AND STYLE. I would not have attempted this kind of mini if I had not found this post.

Here's my Coin Envelope Mini Album with details following the pictures.

Project #63 of this year

My Project Details:
  1. All papers are from the CRATE PAPER SEASON COLLECTION KIT. (shown below)
  2. TAGS, BAGS, BOXES & MORE Cricut cartridge used for coin envelopes & tags. (shown below)
  3. Coin Envelopes p. 113 cut @ 7 1/2" using shift feature. (I  cut out 8 of these, but had room for a few more.)
  4. Tags p. 89 cut @ 3 1/2". (Cut out enough for every coin envelope you use.)
  5. Martha Stewart DOILY LACE punch used on cover. (shown below)
  6. Magnets used to keep mini closed.
  7. Ribbon from Michael's.
  8. Heart Sticker on front also from the same paper kit.
  9. CHIPBOARD: Cut (2) 4" x 2 3/4".
  10. CHIPBOARD: Cut (2) 1" x 2 3/4".
  11. CHIPBOARD: Cut (1) 2" x 2 3/4".
  12. Pattern paper: Cut pattern paper same sizes as shown for chipboard above and adhere to chipboard pieces.
  13. Paper Paper: Cut (1) 2 3/4" x 12".

Not shown in the photos above, I ended up stamping the bottom of every tag with one of Mary's CARDZ TV STAMPS from various sets. Here are the stamps I ended up using:

On the front cover: 
Count Your Blessings from THANKFUL FOR YOU

On the front and back of every tag, these stamps were used:
God Bless You!
my friend
be happy
Bless your heart!

Thankful for you
Count your blessings!

It's your day!


Ladybug hugs!
Just buzzing by to say hi!
Ants in your pants!
Cute as a BUG!

Be sure and stop by Mary's CARDZ TV STAMPS and check them out! You need to get them for yourself. They are awesome!

Thanks for stopping by today! Smiles! :) Janis
