Sunday I attended a Stamp & Share for Leaders in Medina, MN.  It is a great opportunity for Sr. Supervisors or above to gather and share great creative stamping & business ideas.  We gave several demo's the title of Stampin' Engineers,  someone designed box hinges out of grosgrain ribbon and crystal effects.   I brought to share a little mini flip album I designed incorporating the Stampin' Up! Bigz  Scallop Envelope Die.  Now the flip album has been around a while and I just converted it to the envelope die.  This die is an exclusive SU product and can be ordered through a Stampin' Up! demo (like "ME" smiling).  

I had so many questions on how to make it I thought I would compile the info and post to my blog so everyone could enjoy it.   If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me.

SUPPLIES:

Stamp Set: Priceless

Paper: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Cardstock, Designer Series Paper Cottage Rose

Accessories:  Crop a Dile, Jumbo Eyelets Pewter, Rich Razzleberry 1/2' Polka Dot Ribbon grosgrain ribbon,

Scallop Envelope Die

Main Pieces of Album measurements:

  • 2 envelopes cut out for the Stampin' Up! Bigz Scallop Envelope Die
  • 1 piece Rich Razzleberry Cardstock 3 1/8" x 4 1/4"
  • 2 pieces of Old Olive Cardstock 3 1/8" x 8 1/2"
  • 1 piece of Whisper White Cardstock 3 1/8" x 8 1/2"
  • 2 Jumbo Eyelets Pewter
  • 20" Rich Razzleberry 1/2" Polka Dot Ribbon grosgrain ribbon

Step 1 copy

First you want to cut two envelopes from your Stampin' Up! Bigz Scallop Envelope Die.  There is about a 3/8" flap on each side of the envelope you will want to cut both of these off on both envelopes.    Then you will want to cut in the same color as your envelopes a piece of cardstock 3 1/8" x 4 1/4" .

Step 2Attach the 3 1/8" x 4 1/4" piece to the flaps of your envelope as shown in the next photo. This is the back of your album.

Step 2 b copy

Here is another view of the album the back is resting on the grid paper and the envelope flaps create the covers.

Step 3 copy

You want to score the 3 1/8" x 8 1/2" pieces of Old Olive & Whisper White Cardstock, 2 1/8" from each edge, then adhere the right flap of one of the Old Olive to the left flap of the Whisper White and the right flap of the Whisper White to the other left flap of the Old Olive to create the inside.

Step 4 copy

Then adhere the white page to the back of your album as shown in the sample to the left.  Then start to have fun and embellish and add photo's were you wish.  It is a fun and simple project.

Twice a year Sr. Supervisors and above in the Midwest meet for a day of sharing.  Everyone takes part bringing displays, sharing business & stamping WOW ideas.   It is one of my favorite events to attend.  Being surround by so many demo's with so much exceptional experience and talent is amazing.

The meetings are held west of Minneapolis, MN and demo's come for near and far.  So if you are a SU demo at Sr. Supervisor or above check out the Yahoo Group for more information.  Not a SU demo you could be and there is still time to get in on the Stampin' Up! new recruit promotion

Here is my swap for the event!
