This weeks Cricut Mini Album DESIGN TEAM Project

The theme for this week's project was Vacation or Summer. I thought of vacation and the one thing I know I take on a vacation is a Camera. There is a cut on the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge that is the shape of a camera and I thought that would be great for a shape book. I cut the shape from chipboard and coverd with swiss dots Bazzill cardstock.

Title was cut using Robotz Font and details inked in.

The inside pages, I made photo mats using the frames from the Cricut cartridge Cindy Loo (LOVE this cartridge!) Using my Gypsy, I was able to delete the inside cutting lines so the frames are mats. On these, I used the flourishes for those particular frames.

Another Cindy Loo frame photo mat, and on the right, I placed an accordian folder to hold 4 photos.

More frame photo mats, and I used an EK Success border punch that cuts out a row of flowers. I used this as a trim that the photo can be inserted into. On the right, I used ribbon as photo corners.

The right sided page has 2 folders that hold 3 photos each and the right side is a photo mat that is a pocket that holds 2 tags that can be used for photos or journalling.

I'm hoping that with future themed mini books, I'll be able to use more graphics to match the theme. I'm getting better with these books and I love making them.

Thanks for stopping by. Another summer weekend coming up. Have a great weekend.

Koala-t hugs,
