First I started with Cricut's 12 x 24' paper and cut a 3 3/4 inch strip. Then, using my Scor-It, I scored even 3 3/4 inch squares all the way across, until there was just a scrap left at the end. There were 10 panels.
With the front and back adhered to the ends of the folded pages, it's time to decorate the album.
Multi-fold views of the photo pages, as well as front and back covers.
Inside pages decorated with MS Loop punch, Cuttlebug Embossing folders, K and Co. birthday cuipboard stick on embellishments, rhinestones, and the lillipops that I cut with Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge by Provo Craft.
I hope you are inspired to try a mini album of your own, and remember: Mamas...don't let your pictures grow up to be jpgs....get them out of the camera and the computer, and on to some scrapbook pages! Record those memories...A story not recorded is destined to be lost.
Okay, I hope you will hop over to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog, and check out the rest of the Design Team's mini-albums, and then try one yourself....post it to Mr. Linky, and be in the running for the big birthday prizes!!
Until next time,
Happy crafting ~
