Mini album

Hey kids!  Happy Friday! Cindy back on the blog today.  I've created a mini album for each of the girls in my daughter's brownie troop.  The troop started two years ago and this mini has pictures from the various events or fun activities they participated in.  Since I had 14 books to make I kept the design simple :-)  These little books were handed out at their bridging ceremony.  They are now on to Girl Scouts.  Wooo-hoo!

I used cereal boxes for the covers.  I cut them on my Cricut using a deep cutting blade set at 6, low speed, max pressure and multi cut @ 2.  The covers measure 6 3/4" square and the actual pages are 6 1/2 x 6 1/2".  I just glued two pieces of patterned paper together to form the pages.  The pictures are 4 x 6.

 Front cover.  I used Elegant Edges Cricut cart - butrfly1 @ 6 3/4" using the book feature.  Sasha was cut using Cricut Craft Room Basics.  The letters are 1" and I welded them together.
When you cut the patterned paper for the inside cover make sure to flip the image :-)
Troop 5739 was cut using Cricut Craft Room Basics.  The letters are 1" and I welded them together.

For journaling spots I just cut white 6 x 6 papers and put a stamp in the top left corner.  Stamps are Jillibean soup seal stamps.  (says 'Love this')

I've used the butterfly on this page (it's the cut out from the front cover :-)

stamp says 'Happy Moments'


stamp says 'laugh loudly'

Back cover.  The books were bound with a Cinch and .75 wires.  I added ribbons to 3 of the rings.  Paper for this book is The Paper Studio - Girls Just Want to Have Fun.

I left space for them to journal and add any add'l photos they want to. 

Thanks for stopping by today :-)  I hope I've inspired you to make a simple mini book.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
