Well, I have to admit that I’m a little sad that our blog hop is coming to an end with this 1/2 completed project! I was busy at a Star Trek Convention in Seattle this weekend and ran out of time. I’m posting this anyway, because I think it shows you that Artbooking makes even a partially completed project look good. It helps that I’m using some of my left over Dream Pop papers as they are super cute!
If this is your first visit to my blog and the Artbooking in August Blog Hop, know that nearly 40 consultants were challenged to create four projects with the Artbooking Cricut Collection this month. We posted either a layout, card, home decor, or mini-album on each Monday in August. I’m far more proud of what I posted earlier in the month, so be sure to check out the other projects on my blog.
If you are coming from Jody’s blog, you are in the right place. Now, let’s finish out the Artbooking in August Blog Hop with a little look at how easy it is to create the pages of a mini-album. I used keys 3 & 4 on pages 40 & 41 to created the base pages of an 8×6 Snapshots Mini-Album.
When you set your page size to 8″, all the other elements will cut at the proper size. The overlay and title are great examples. I encourage you to save all the “bits” from your overlays, because they just might come in handy later in your project.
I backed the “My Favorite Photos” flags in black and then added a little Liquid Glass to give them the look of epoxy stickers. This is such a fun and easy technique.
There are even little envelopes you can create to store fun little treasures in your mini-album. I used a Hook & Loop Dot to keep the flap closed. I can see creating a bunch of these for My Crush Album, as well.
