Bind It All Envelope Album

Oh how bad are these scans?
I wanted to get a pic of the open album with the inserts fanned out but scanner wasn't having any of it.......ruddy!!!
Anyhoo..........this is my first attempt at something a bit more gutsy than a notebook using my fabulous BIA binding system. Totally made of some little brown envies that DD found for me at Tesco.....not the C6 ones I sent her for but they are a very cute size and were 87p for 50......what a bargain!!!
The papers used are Dovecraft from the Mens Pack which I think is gorgeous.
First pic shows the book closed and I have used chipboard embellies from the same collection.
I haven't filled it with photos or anything beacuse a) both the guys in my house are camera shy and b) I am not a scrapbooker by any stretch of the imagination so I leave that to the experts.
Managed to get the ATC's finished tonight and they will be sent off in the morning. Can't say they thrilled me an awful lot to be honest.........a bit too small for me but I have had a go anyway.
I shall be shop keepering tomorrow morning while Deb does a class and then we have to finish the prep for an all day class on Thursday. We have nine people coming to that one.......the biggest we have done for a while so I am looking forward to that.
I am off for a cuppa now and then I might have a fiddle about with another project before bedtime.
Night night folks

ETA...... I am getting asked for instructions to make the Waterfall Card and the best place I can point you is HERE
I just make the mechanism and add it to any size of card.
For the letters I used the Codex font which I downloaded free from a font site and I messed about with it until I got the size to roughly one and three quarter inches square.......don't ask me for that in cms cos I am an old fashioned!!!
Hope this helps.
