Hello there again! Today I'm sharing with you all a mini album I created to put pictures of my kids and my nieces and nephews. The kids are all growing up so fast and 3 more cousins were born this year. My kids don't always see their cousins as often as they'd want but this way this mini album can remind them how their cousins look like and a little something about each of them (I've included a place for each kid to write something about him/herself). I am also linking this project to the Cricut Circle Blog challenge of the week: mini album.
The base of the pages of this mini album is an image from the Elegant Edges cart, cut at 5.62 inches, perfect to cut 4 of them in one 12x12 mat. I used double-sided cardstock from various stacks I already have. I was able to use my Cinch binder (love how easy to use this tool is!) to bind the pages before I personalized each page. I also tucked in a long piece of grossgrain ribbon I have had on hand forever before I bound the pages together. Inside, you may notice that the frames were glued only on one side - this is to allow me to add pictures later.
The cover page has the following cuts and details: heart doily (Sophie), "2011" (Gypsy Font), "Cousins 4ever" (Life Is A Beach), white irock gems to embellish.
