So a few weeks ago, I demonstrated during Norma's Workshop. My focus with this workshop was envelopes. In my first project, I showed the girls how to easily add envelope liners to gussy up their envelopes. What a great way to use up your stash of designer paper:

I used the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies

I also added a coordinating "quick" card by using the coordinating 
Botanical Gardens Designer Paper and the 2" Circle Punch. 

For my next card, I used the Balloon Builders stamp set to create this beauty. Wait until you see how it opens:

This is an envelope card that I created using 4 circles of It's My Party Designer Paper. I cut 4 circles using the #2 circle from the Circles Collection Framelits Dies:

Once the circles were cut, I added one score line in the center of each circle and folded. I then overlapped and glued them together. I decorated the front and the inside of my envelope and you close the flaps by overlapping exactly like you would a box top:

I also added designer paper to the coordinating envelope like I did on the first project and forgot to take a photo. What a nice 2-piece set!

For the third project, all of the girls created this 3-piece set to take home with them. We added designer paper to the flap of a 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" envelope with a coordinating 3" x 3" card and we also created a Bag-A-Lope. A Bag-A-Lope is born by using an envelope:

Isn't it neat how you can turn an envelope into a treat bag? You can google Bag-A-Lope and you'll find lots of video's and tutorials out there to help you create one.

The stamp set I used is one of those FREE Sale-A-Bration products. Get your order in today and add in the What I Love stamp set! You'll receive the FREE stamp set, a FREE card kit in the mail from me as a thank you, a chance to win the doorprize, and more products will be sent to you for using the Host/Hostess Code!
