Daily prayer mini

Remember the sneak peek from a couple of weeks ago? I have finally finished it- well almost. I still need to take a couple of pictures to include AND my newest Cricut cartridge should be here today so I can add a die cut. =)
I made this mini using envelopes- YES, ENVELOPES. You know the business kind, return envelopes that are included with junk mail and bills (if you still get those in the mail. LOL) I seal each one up and then cut in half. The closed ends were then bound together (with the handy little Bind It All) to make pocket pages. Cardstock tags were added to each pocket- after the pages were bound! LOL I then clipped all of the edges to make a tag shape. The top layer on the pages were then folded back to let a little of the tag show. Lots of fun embellishments and ribbon complete my album. (Yeah, stamping and ink too.)
Mine is a little prayer journal. Each layout includes the day of the week, something specific to pray for that day and most include scripture. (I will go back and add more scripture verses)

Here is a glimpse of the pages and tags.

This is Monday- the same page from the sneak peek. when I pull out the tag it reminds who to pray for that day.

Wednesday is the day to pray for our friends. (I need a couple of pics of our friends.)

Friday- pray for our local Church- again, I need pics of our church/ members.

Saturday- Our Relatives. I included family photos here. The flap on this ones lifts up to reveal the day of the week.

Sunday- I sealed to end of the last envelope on this one to make a sturdier back cover for my album. I used a circle punch and scalloped circle punch to make a small pocket for a tag.

Next project- getting my studio visitor ready!! LOL

I hope you enjoy!!
Until later~

Beautiful!!! I know how to do these little pockets and use them on layouts, but never thought of making them into a little book like that. How inventive!!! I will certainly try that!

Lisa, I loved this so much that I made one for myself. Mine will probably be with family pictures though. Anyway, I took it to scrapbooking with me and everyone loved it and they want me to teach a class on it. Thanks for the wonderful idea. One of the gals said she may be using it as a prayer book for her 4 little guys to use each night for prayers too.
