Boy oh Boy!!
This is a beautiful mini album made with my Cricut Explore Air 2, and several different Design Space Files. I used several types of papers, including some Corrugated Specialty paper from DCWV for the spine. The cover even has a Hot air Balloon that is also a Shaker!!
I was so happy with every page in this book, and made each with a different style, keeping it all in primary colors, suitable for any type of picture. All of the pages have plenty of room for pictures, as they each have tabs that allow mom to keep special pictures inside.
The front cover has the "Special Delivery" message, and the little joey is holding a kite with string. The front page has a wonderful little airplane, with a dimensional sticker, and the frame inside of the pocket has banners with small stars between each piece.
I also created interactive pages with a removable Giraffe, tags for journaling, and a removable book with a peekaboo window.
Other pages even have a touch of texture with a clothesline, embossed hills, and hand-colored water scene where a whale is splashing away. The shell on the little snail even got a touch of oxide inks, and hand-doodling.
I love giving my projects a personal touch, and the pictures really do not cover it all. So watch my video for an even closer look!
