Stamp Focus: Fancy Greetings

by Kymona Tracey

Hello everyone!

Kymona here with a super cute mini envelope album highlighting the new Fancy Greetings Stamp Set.

This stamp set is truly amazing. I love this typography. The swirl makes each sentiment fancy and bold all at once.

Let’s take a look at my mini envelope album:

Fancy GreetingsYou’re wondering how this could possibly be an envelope album, right? No worries, I’m going to show you below. It’s so nice and small. You could mail this off in the regular mail.

I used the patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection, Red Cosmos Enamel Dots and of course the Fancy Greetings stamp set to create this compact album.

Let’s look inside this mini envelope album:

Now does this look like an envelope album? Yes, it does! This project is so easy to create.

Here’s how to create this mini album:

For the envelopes:

  1. Cut (2) 6×6 pieces of patterned paper.
  2. Cut (1) 6.5×6.5 piece of patterned paper.

For the inside pieces:

  1. Cut (2) 3.5×3.5 pieces of patterned paper.
  2. Cut (1) 3.75×3.75 piece of patterned paper.

For the belly band:

  1. Cut (1) 1.5×9.75 piece of patterned paper.

I used an envelope punch board to create the three envelopes.

Assembling the album:

Start with the big envelope, place that in the center. Tape down the flap of the right envelope to the bigger envelope at the seam of each envelope. Repeat the same on the left side.

Once the envelopes are all adhered, center the square pieces in the middle of each envelope and tape them down. The bigger one goes to the center.

Stamp different sentiments on the outside envelopes. Attach a photo to the center envelope.

To close the envelope, fold the outside envelopes first. Turn the right side, then the left side. Close the center flaps.

Fold the belly band around the album. Not too tight, you want to be able to pull it off.

Stamp another sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and punch it out.

Adhere it to the front of the belly band.

Nice and easy to create.

So what do you think? Would you try to create a mini envelope album? I would love to hear from you!
