Cricut Mini Albums Design Team Project

Here is another project I've completed being a member of the Design Team for Cricut Mini Albums Blog.

I chose the Cupcake from Sweet Treats to create the pages of the book, cutting the shadow feature at 6".

For the cover, I made the cupcake. I used Stickles to give dimension to the frosting and I used Paper Glaze to give a glossy look to the cherry. SWEET{IES} was cut using All Mixed Up.

For various embellishments throughout the book, I used EK Success or Martha Stewart border punches.

Pages throughout the book are brown and pink and I used paper from DCWV Sweet Stack. Added bling here and there. On the left side page, it is an accordian folder that holds 4 pictures. The ribbon goes around the book, and the closure is made with Basic Gray magnets sewn into the ribbon with a dot of FabriTac glue to hold in place.

This is the accordian folder shown open, with places for 4 photos.

These pages are made with pockets to hold tags for more photos or journalling.

Another accordian folder on the left, and tag pocket on the right, with a place on the pocket to place a photo too.
Accordian folder shown open. Each photo mat has either corners, ribbon or border to hold the photo in place.

Last 2 pages of the book.

I enjoyed making this album and I'm going to put my grandchildren's photos in it!
