CottageCutz Spring Mini Album

So how many of you have the WeR Memory Keepers Envelop Punch Board???  I got mine at Michael's with a 40% off coupon.  It was a great purchase-there is so much you can create with that--have you notice!!!  For instance, I made this mini album with the Envelope punch board.  Thanks to the wonderful crafter who created this tutorial it was a breeze.
 Today I am going to show you my cover.  This is my Design Team project for CottageCutz using the cute dies from the Garden Delight release.  Of course, I used a few other ones in my Cottage Cutz collection that coordinate perfectly with this release.    The cover uses Springtime Bunny, Garden Delight Butterflies, Lace Flower Doily, Bella Leafy Branch, and Fancy Floral Background.
Blossoms and Butterflies from DCWV is the paper collection used in this project.  I think I have hoarded that one for long enough don't you....lol  It was perfect for the bright cheerful spring look I was going for.  The edges of the paper have been distressed and inked with tea dye distress ink.  There isn't a speck of glitter on this project either...WOW-huh!!!  There is silver foil in the paper and that is what you see glistening...but yeah, no glitter.  The flowers were created with a large and medium five petal Marvey punch.  The stamp is from Michael's $1 bin from a few years ago.
Please stayed tune to more reveal of my project this month.  My mini album was made with 4 envelopes created on the Envelope Punch Board.  It was so fun to make and holds lots of pockets and pictures.  I can't wait to show you the rest of the 22 Cottage Cutz dies I used to create this.  That's right---I used a total of 27 Cottage Cutz dies for this album.  I think that is a record for me....lol  Thanks for stopping by today to view my project.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies I used:
