Clear Envelope Christmas Album - Stamp Club Project #1

This was the first project at last night's stamp club.  We made this little mini album using SU's clear envelopes for the pages to slip your photos in inside.  I've made albums with pages from clear envelopes before (there was even one in a tin back in 2008!)  This particular one was inspired by Josee Smuck (see here for her's...although mine looks completely different...the inside is the same idea).

The dimensions for the cardstock are:
Base 4 7/8 x 8 1/2 scored at 1/4 and 1 1/4
Cover 4 7/8 x 6 1/4

I used the Calm Christmas stampset to decorate the album.  The dove is stamped in gold and 'peace on earth' is stamped in espresso.  The background for this focal point was also stamped first with the dictrionary background stamp.  The cover was embellished by running the cherry cobbler piece through the big shot with the pretty print embossing folder.  The patterned paper comes from the Season of Style dsp pack and we also used some of the crumbcake washi tape from the Epic Day assortment.  The album was fastened together by punching two holes in the spine with the cropadile and then lacing some cherry cobbler seam binding through and tying a bow.
