Envy Scrapbook with ISC rubber stamps...

I used my square envy cut from 110# white cardstock, cut covers from the same cardstock and made the neatest "Envy Scrapbook"...I love Betsy's woodgrain background stamp...its so bold and just wonderful to work with...I use just the piece of rubber laying flat on my work surface, ink it up then laid the cardstock over the inked rubber stamp, then placed a piece of text weight paper over that, and used my bone folder to rub evenly across the stamp...it works great...
I am giving this book to a friend to add her own treasures to...She is a very outdoorsy kinda gal...so the image of the little girl in the sunflower patch and the word treasures, was perfect for this book cover...

I did the flaps of each envy with the same woodgrain stamp...I just love that look...I used different images with a garden or outdoor theme on each envy page...I colored the chipboard photo turns with butterscotch ink and then coated with Ranger Glossy Accents to give them shine and added durability...I attached them to each layering panel and attached each panel to the envy page with redliner tape...


The back side of each envy was left plain, as she will want to add photos there as well as photos to the inside of each envy...















This is how the envy looks opened up...plenty of room for extra photos, memorabilia and more...
be sure and check out The Studio blog to get the cardstock envy's used in this book...
