'Artsy Village' Envelope Mini Album for Scrappingville

Dear friends,
I have been slowly building a mini album of little houses for weeks!. Which was unbelievably slow for me, I was searching ideas high and low for making this mini album :). Finally it all came together and here is the finished project;


The Graphic 45 Black Policy envelope mini album is part of my lovely July DT kit. I turned the envelopes into several little homes, full of inspirational notes. Just last month, I painted little houses in my art journal called 'Happy Nest' and I liked it so much that I wanted to make little houses mini album!.


I used wooden beads, skeleton keys, a drawer pull (a flea market find), a door handle and lots of ribbons and laces for additional interest. Every page is dedicated for one alphabet and I embellished that page with everything inspiring regarding that word. For instance; my first house is called ART (A for Art) and another house named BEAUTY (B for Beauty). I was able to squeeze 10 alphabets from A to J. 


I will be teaching how to make this envelope mini album @ Scrappingville store starting this July. We update our classes schedule every 1st of the month. So, check us out and you're up for a very fun creating time!.

Hugs,
Shahrul

Supplies: 
Graphic 45: Black Policy Envelope Mini Album, Alphabet Stickers; Glitz Teeny Alpha; Collection Elements:  6" X 6" Designer Papers "French Wallpapers", Elegant labels, dictionary strips, Artistic Expressions Lowercase, Artistic Expressions Uppercase, Mini Melange; 7 Gypsies fabric tape.

  1. Pardon me while I pass out for a minute! Shahrul..this is a mini jam packed bundle of awesomeness! In comparison to your hand, how large is it? It unbelievable detailed and all inclusive with a handle and awning...BRILLIANT! I love that each page represents a letter in the alphabet. That a-r-t on the beads is wonderful too. :)
    I'll begin bowing while I exit....

  10. WOW WOW WOW!!!!! What a cute idea this is, LOVE LOVE LOVE each page and all the little details you put on each one. I can't imagine having patience for all that, you are amazing. What a great idea to do a house for each letter, LOVE THAT!! You should be patting yourself on the back for a job WELL DONE!! That little door handle on the front is just too cute!!

    I love little houses also, just something about them makes me happy. Recently started a book with houses made out of my favorite colors at that time.
    Thank you for sharing this awesome mini with us.

    1. Thanks so much, Dawn. Yup this is such a long project to complete. First it was lack of inspirations, then after some time I tend to put too many things on every page!. LOL, so ... I took a few days break just to chillax. I am loving the colorful beach boxes seen from postcards. Inspired. Hugs.
