Stampin' Up! Envelope pocket album

A little later today than usual but better late than never

I woke up early as usual and then nodded back off and now I have a headache!

We had a big drama at home yesterday! I got a call from my neighbour to say our Chimney was surrounded with thousands of Bees....... we had a few come into the house via the log burner area in our dining room .... nooooo I can't deal with them in the house... I think we may have to get the pest man in to deal with them

The door to the dining room is closed but I can't help taking a peek, just hope they decide it's not such a great place to have a hive.....

so onto a little project, I saw Dawn Griffith originally create this and I had to create my own

I used the fantastic Mosaic Madness to decorate the front and don't you just love the new colour Smoky Slate

The ribbon is retired ruffle trim but I had a roll left so decided it need to be used, so for those ladies who have requested to make it in our next class? I do have some left for you!

I used the Stampin' Up! Medium Envelopes 

Here is a closer look at the punched images using the coordinating punch Mosaic 

it's hard to tell but the following 2 cards are made using Stampin' Up! note cards and matching envelopes

the 2 note cards fit inside one of the envelopes and the envelopes in the other

here they are together a better view at the size of the note cards

Hubby just called upstairs to say there are a few bees flying around the top of the chimney! I just hope the rest of them have gone away and not inside the chimney in a cosy hive

It's going to be another hot day...... I really have to do some crafting as I had a delivery on Monday and haven't played too much with it all... I did get to use my new Bigshot Magnetic platform.... it's amazing .. love it!

Until next time ..... enjoy a buzz free day! 


  1. Love this set Peg and I agree with you on the smoky slate - it's divine and I think may have replaced crumb cake as my favourite neutral !!!
    Hope your bees sort themselves out ?? xxx

  2. Fab. card designs Peg. I love the new Mosaic items and the new colours.
    I hope the Bee problem is sorted out very soon.

    Your cards are all so pretty. I like the embossing folder you used :)

  5. Lovely as usual Peg! I'm really thinking about that set ;)! Hope those bees have buzzed off! C x
