Wisteria Club Scrap Blog Hop

Welcome to July's

This month when I saw the paper I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it...
I wanted to make an "Inspiration" book for a very dear friend.
She is battling a very tough disease that leaves her incapacitated at times and I'm sure it gets to be very disheartening not being able to do all that you would like.
To help her through these tough times I thought it would be nice to give her a bit of a lift and this kit was perfect.  The sentiments included in each set of stamps were just perfect and very upbeat.
I decided to go with an envelope album (click here to see how I made the basic envelope album).
Here's how it turned out....
Front Cover....
CS - Wisteria 030
CS - Wisteria 029
Here is the inside of the album ~
this side is where all of the envelope pockets are.

Each page has a CS Sentiment stamped somewhere on the page and
each of the insert pages has a stamped CS sentiment as well.
CS - Wisteria 018
These are the individual pages...
You can see that each of the inserts has a Metal Corner Clip (included in the kit) which I am using here as a pull tab so the insert pages stay nice even with repeated use.
CS - Wisteria 020
CS - Wisteria 021
CS - Wisteria 022
CS - Wisteria 023
just to show the pull out insert.
CS - Wisteria 024
And I also covered the backs of each envelope as well, most with sentiments.
CS - Wisteria 025
CS - Wisteria 026
CS - Wisteria 027
And the back of the album....
CS - Wisteria 028
All of the papers and ribbon are from the Wisteria Kit, I used stamps from Wisteria, Hopes, Cape Cod, Spring Chorus and Random Doorways.
The only additional supplies used were: Dusty Concord Distress Ink, Distress Markers
and 8 Ivory 4.75 x 6.5" envelopes.
