SWEET envelope album...this may be my favorite project EVER!!!!

I am so in love with this project! This is a minibook I created using envelopes adhered to one another in an accordian fashion. I created this envelope album for my Cricut Expression 201 class at Pages In Progress. Everything you see (minus the ribbon, of course) was cut with the Expression. All cuts are from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, except the word SWEET on the front cover, which is from Storybook (thanks, Lorena!) The double-sided patterned paper is the "Color Me Pink" line from 3 Bugs In A Rug. The colored cardstock is Bazzill (colors are Red Hot and Parakeet), and the white is just the Georgia-Pacific cardstock that you can buy by the ream at Wal-Mart. The white pen is Marvy's Gel Excel. I used my Scor-Pal for scoring all the envelopes. Leave me a comment with your email if you'd like a cut list with sizes. Here is a picture of the front cover:
Close-up of front cover:
Here is the front of the envelope album all stretched out:
Here is the back of the album, showing how the top flap (the smaller of the two flaps) is attached to the envelope above it:
Here is the first page under the front cover. Each page has a rectangle on the front of the envelope for a picture or journaling. The corners of this rectangle must be rounded with a punch (or by using a cartridge with a rounded rectangle on it). For my class, I try to keep all the cuts on one cartridge, since I know that people who have the Expression will have Plantin Schoolbook. Inside each envelope is a larger rectangle for a picture:
Second inside page:
Third inside page:
Fourth inside page:
Fifth inside page:
Sixth, and last, page:
