Glittery Butterfly Mini Album

I made this simple mini album using long envelopes. Then I proceeded to make it complicated! LOL

I started out with green #10 envelopes that I had left over from 2 Christmases ago. I followed Laura Dennison's instructions in this video from 2010.

Then I covered it in some K & Co. specialty glitter paper from the Merryweather line.
Since more is always better when glitter is concerned...LOL... I added some Art Glitter that my DH put in my stocking. (you got to love a man that buys you lots of pretty glitter :) 

This is one of my butterfly cut files.

Here is one of my "pretty flowers" inked with Distress Stains and glittered on the edges.

I added some cardstock to cover the binding and stained seam binding around it.

I covered everything in patterned paper and added some embellishments from by butterfly and diamond edges cut files.

 Some pages had 1 pocket adorned in pearls...
...and other pages had 2 pockets with pink rhinestones. 

I covered some of the flaps with butterflies and others with my Diamomd Edged medallions with a Pretty Flower in the center.

Here is a look at all the tags. 

Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I am going to work on my own mini album cut files to use instead of envelopes.  I will post pictures of it soon.
