USTAMP Blog Hop 2012-Envelope Faux Book

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Teresa Giordanos' Little Memories, what a FUN way to preserve memories? Tere is a FABULOUS Designer and always shares something special for UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! events!!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.

Scrapbooking for some is a tedious task. I wanted to show how preserving your memories can be FUN and EASY. It also doesn't have to be TRADITIONAL. I made a Envelope Faux Book.

Do you notice the cutie in the picture on the left...This is my hubby and I when we were in Kindergarten and if you see inside the box is Solimar's Kindergarten picture. When Joaquin starts Kindergarten we will add his picture. You can also add special trinkets in the box as well, under the pictures. 

Here is my LOVELY card using Papaya Collage. Its a new stamp set in the 2012-2013 catty.
I have also used the new colors Midnight Muse (base), Summer Starfruit (frame).
In my tutorial you will see how I extended the frame to make it longer.

As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!!
