Album and book making can be an art form in itself. There are many different sizes, themes, and ways to bind albums together to create something unique and fitting for your own needs. Kimberly has created and shared this gorgeous little Perpetual Calendar Book to share with us today! She cleverly used some of our Kraft Envelopes to create pages for this book, and then filled them with fun ephemera and cards from the store. Let’s take a peek inside!

You’re going to take 7 envelopes and fold the flap inside, pull it back out, and moisten the sticky part so you can adhere it to the inside of the envelope. Set them aside.
Take red sheet or color of your choice and cut 12..7×5 Then ink the edges. I used TA Baseboard in the color Cardboard that I sprayed into a little cup and dipped a eye rush sponge into it.
Take black sheets and cut 12 4.5″x 6.5″ pieces. Now layer the red on top then add the gypsy moments months card on top. Now add these to the envelopes- one on each side. Then take a paper punch and punch holes into envelope, making sure nothing is inside it first. Use the first one as your diagram to make sure each of the envelope holes line up for the punch.
Next, you will cut out the months add to the card so the stick out of the envelope. Make sure before you glue them down.
Embellish front cover with all the lovely quotes from gypsies moments pad. There are so many adorable quotes to make your book unique. Add pages for front and back.
Embellish ring binders using lace and ribbon
Such a lovely little book with lots of inspiration for us! If you have a few extra envelopes on hand this would be a fun project to do! Otherwise, Canvas Corp offers envelopes and card blanks in the shop in a variety of cardstocks. Don’t forget to stop over there and take a look!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and Happy Crafting!
