Enveloped Scrapbook Calendar

Hi there memory keepers,
Organizing our memories, I found quite a few gift bags with cards, photos, kids' drawings and keepsakes. It seems I'm always behind with my family's scrapbook! So this year I decided to get organized and create a master plan for the yearly scrapbook items. Since it's almost September and a new school year is about to start (Thank G-d), I made my mini scrapbook for the school year.
This mini scrapbook album is made of 12 9x4" brown envelopes, K and Company Scrap kit patterned paper scraps, a student's name tags I had, 2 office jump rings, some ribbon scraps and the Jennie Bowlin Mini Calendar Card Set. The way it works is small keepsakes, anecdotes and photos can be kept inside the envelope while the main photo, the one that best represent that month, will get pasted next to the month card. Smaller 2x3" wallet photos can be adhered to the back of the envelope.

Hope you are enjoying your summer,
