Personalized Photo Mailers

Oh Baby!  Oh Baby!.....Photo Mailer
Designed & Created by Sandra VanWoerden
CTMH products used
Here are a few of the photo mailers I have been working on. You can fill these with pictures and messages to send to Friends, & family.
You can personalize these to fit the event of the pictures, share a vacation,
or even the new arrival to your family. 
These will be treasured as they are made from the heart and sent to those you love.   Hope you enjoy. I have already given a few of these to my dear friends filled with pictures from special events that we attended together. I truly enjoyed making them as well as giving them.
 The Friendship Photo Mailer below shows full details
The total size of the mailer is 4.3/4 tall and 6.3/4 long.
They will fit into a 5x7 envelope.
The front section (grey CS) is folded over aproximatly  
 1 to 1.1/2 over the back section (white CS).

I used "Close To My Heart" Grey Wool Cards Stock (5571)
and the Feb. Stamp of the Month (D1453). I stamped the grey card
stock randomly using Blk. Excl. Inks Stamp pad (Z2105).
 The Red cut out flourish is stamped in 
CTMH Excl. inks Hoiday Red (Z2127)
I stamped  in blk. and cut out the sentiment, and used a
couple of pop dots to lift the sentiment above the cut out
stamped flourish which is attached directly to the Grey Wool Card stock.

Inside, you see I stamped the Grey Wool Card Stock in the Holiday Red.
The white back side of  card stock stamped
in Black inks. The pictures are inside of the  "Close To My Heart"
Memory Proctectors in the 4x6 Flip Flaps (Z4114).

I stamped the second sentiment onto a  2.1/2 x 2.1/2  square
and adhered on top of the red ribbon

Very simple to make and fun to give as gifts or even as an annoucement.
