October Club Stamp Tutorial - Mini Envelope Album

Good morning, Heidi here!

Pinch punch, first day of the month to you! October is here at last, along with golden crispy leaves and chilly mornings lol!  Grab yourself a large coffee and hope you enjoy my post!

Here is our brand new stamp set for October - 'Christmas Snowmen'

I have made a tutorial on a mini envelope album that I made using the gorgeous new October Club stamp set - 'Snowmen'.  It is the club pack project make, that comes with the set this month.
It is a very simple little album, which enables you to use up all of those unwanted envelopes you may have in your stash.  Just adding some white ribbon, beautiful snowflake paper, white card and lots of Stickles 'Mercury Glass' Glitter Glue.  I have given you a product list and some instructions, if you would like to give it a go and make one yourself.

There is also added a square of 'Snowflake' paper to the back of the album, this carries on the theme and gives the album some added strength.  You can include photos in them to make wonderful thoughtful gifts.

Products Used :
Little Claire 'Christmas Snowmen' - October Club Stamp Set
Craft Creations 'Snowflake' Paper
Three White Envelopes : 10cms x 10cms
White Card
White Ribbon

Mini-Album Instructions :
