Creating Envelope Stickers {decorating envelopes}

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I want to show you how to create envelope stickers or decorate envelopes using literally ANY Paper Smooches dies and stamps!!! I also share a "Savannah TRUTH" about decorating the inside of my cards:)


Here's the video:

Here's a couple of pictures of different ways to decorate your envelopes:
Decorate your envelopes by stamping right on the front or back.
Decorate your envelopes by creating stickers using just dies.
Or decorate your envelope using stickers that have been paper pieced/colored/etc.

I really hope you will create some coordinating stickers for your envelopes or stamp your Paper Smooches images right on the envelope the next time you need to send a note!!! Please leave a comment below with a link to your project! I'd love to check it out:) 

**And don't forget if you leave a comment, please add your blog address and email so I can visit you too:) love hearing from the VS followers when you've created something based off of one of our videos:) So keep leaving comments and links!!! 

ANNNNNNNNNND speaking of leaving comments-- I am going to start sharing a Virtual Smooches Featured Fan each week! So be sure to leave links to your creations and pictures of your projects using the techniques we share on the VS blog!!! The Featured Fan will receive a badge to place on their blog or sidebar! We will start next week:) 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Love this idea Savannah! Now I'm gonna have to get one of those sticker making machines you show in your video...and I was JUST at Michael's today! Grrrr! LOL! Oh, and you can soooo finish the inside of your cards very easily! I personally think my cards aren't finished if the inside isn't. You don't even need to put any layers of paper in the inside if you don't want to, just stamp something! I double dog dare ya!! LOL!

Envelope stickers! Such a cute idea! No PS dies yet for me, so no envelope stickers for me.

Savannah - how do you come up with these awesome, ever-so-clever ideas?? Love this! Like you, my card insides are empty, because I have no idea what to put inside, not even a sentiment! Jazzing up envelopes is a most wonderful alternative - and 'do-able'!! Hmmm...perhaps a goal (little steps...) is to try to decorate the inside of say...1 out of every 4-5 cards I make. It's a start, so we'll see if (or rather, how..) that goes. LOVE LOVE LOVE this video and the idea for VS Featured Fans is wonderful!! You're such an inspiration!!

These are so cute. I have been decorating my envelopes but never thought to take pics of them. Silly me!!! I will have to snap some pics next time.

Such a cute idea Savannah! I do stamp the insides of some of my cards, but these die cuts could also work for that too. :) I love the banners with the sentiments on the envelope flap - it just adds that little something!
