I went Mini!!!

Designed by Randi Fien

I was sooo excited to see Taraleigh's mini album she made with the March kit that I decided to make one of my own! Here is the mini I made for my son's preschool end of the year program. I used the Graphically Speaking cartridge to cut the shape of my album.











I had a lot of fun embellishing this mini! I also had fun using the cricut! The tree shape on the cover came from the Simply Charmed cartridge. It was the first time I actually played with the "layering" technique! The birdcage shape was from the Songbird cartridge. I was kinda bummed that it got covered by the picture so I will be sure to use that shape again somewhere else!  As you can see I was able to get a lot of use out of my paper and embellishments as well as be able to scrap ALL the fun moments I captured in pictures! Start to finish this project took me about 2 hours...and it took would have been shorter if I could make decisions faster!!!

If you are inspired to make a mini album either for yourself or as a gift...let us know! We will be happy to post them for all to see!
