One of the reasons I just adore the new Close To My Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge are the mini albums that it has! I have made the smaller one first and it went together fast! I used chipboard for the base from my paper packs and a DCWV baby boy paper stack that I have had for a while.
This album is on page 60. I cut it at 3.98 height.
I used an old wood mounted rubber stamp with a die cut that I already had from a previous project for the baby’s stats. Using this wood mounted stamp made me so appreciate my clear stamps! The adorable little baby is cut from the New Arrival Cricut cartridge at 1.5 height.
I wanted to keep the pages simple as the focus should aways be the pictures and journaling of the memories. Boys love trucks at some point in their lives so I had to add this old pick up truck from the new arrival cartridge. It was cut at 1.5 height. The 2nd page is matted for a photo and a small baby block metal embellishment from MM.
This page has a two sided mini pullout album for additional pictures and journaling. I used a border punch for both ends and tacky tape to adhere it down after it was scored. I like to use this feature for extra pictures and some journaling space.
I kept the next two pages simple and was able to use a die cut I had from a previous project. I never throw away cuts I don’t use, I keep them in a drawer on my book shelf. I like using the metal embellishments with ribbon for a more masculine look on my boy or men books and layouts.
This is another adorable cut from the New Arrival cartridge cut at 1.5 height. The detail at such a small size is really great! I distressed the edges of the photo mat and inked it using a chocolate ink.
This is one of my favorite cuts on New Arrival and at 1.5 height I am super impressed with how well it cuts.
The final two pages are very simple and once photos are added and maybe some journaling it will be a perfect finish. The tag is on Ariste on page 32. This tag is a great idea for any gift! I love the shape.
