Artiste Cricut Mini Album

I decided it was time to make another mini album from the Close To My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge and opted to make two cuts using some chipboard that I had in my stash. Because this could be a very heavy photo post, I will make two post out of it. I cut the mini album on page 59.

The first cut is the front and back cover. I was able to get both cuts out of a 8.5X11 piece of chip board.

My blade was set at 6. The speed and pressure were set on high. I used multi cut and cut it two times. If I had a deep cut blade I might not have to do the multi cut, but it works just fine.

These are the smaller inside pages and you can see I was able to get 4 on one 8.5X11 page.

These are the larger inside pages, so I had to cut this twice. If you are cutting one, its just so easy to go ahead and cut another one to have for your next project!

Here are the two chipboard mini albums ready for paper! This took about 15 minutes to cut.

I had some scrap chipboard left over and I cut two book marks to play around with.

My paper is from Close To My Heart from last Falls catalog. I love the colors in this paper pack! Great for Fall but also for summer.

These are the coordinating card stock that come with this paper stack.

Putting this together is pretty quick. I simply cut my two sided paper using the same cut file on my Gypsy and used a liquids adhesive to adhere the paper to my chipboard pieces.

I adore these mini albums on this cartridge!

I will be back with the completed mini album later on. Need to get busy with the second one as I need to wrap them up for a new mommy. The more embellishments you add the more personalized you can make these. I plan to put the new baby’s name on the front of this one with some bling!

Blessings!
