Artbooking in August! Project #3! Mini Book

Welcome to Week #3 of the Artbooking in August Blog Hop. Last week's artwork was so phenomenal and this week over 35 creative consultants are at it again!

Our challenge is to create 4 different projects using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.  Our mission is to design each of the following. This week I chose a the Mini Book!

1. 2 page layout 
2. Card
3. Mini Book 
4. Home decor or 'giftable' item 

If you arrived here from Jan's Blog you are on the right track!

(Remember this is a circular blog hop and if you get lost or confused along the way, the list is posted on Adeline's blog here.)

Now let's take a look at that Mini-book I mentioned...

I used my Artbooking Cartridge to create a flower girl photo album! I made a horizontal and a vertical version. (The book is a small clear plastic album you can find at Michaels or Dollar Stores that holds 4 x6 photos. I decorated the front and back of the covers.)

I used Lucy bulk papers as my base. The flip side of the paper is used to cut the word "Girl".

The flower was cut from page 80 of the booklet. I layer a whisper grey cut onto the pink side of the Lucy paper and added glitter gel to the outermost edge. The petal cuts in the center I inked with pigment ink in cotton candy and left them raised. The pink button made the perfect center!

This is is the inside of the album. This cricut shape matches perfectly to the memo stamp included in the bundle. I had to set my machine on "8". I am going to use this accent to journal the Bride and Groom's name, Flower Girl name, Date, place, etc... This way my daughter will always remember when she got to be a flower girl!

This is a small accent I added to the back cover of the album. "Sweet Heart". This is what I keep saying in my head when I see the photos again. "awww, she was such a sweet heart!" hehehhe.

Hope you like my project!

Now hop over to Jane's Blog to see what she has created!



  1. Perfect for keeping the memories of a beautiful event.

  2. So Pretty! You did a beautiful job!

  3. This is so cute and practical too. You can throw it in your purse and the plastic cover will protect the artwork! Great idea.
