Mini Album w/your Cricut #4

Hi Everyone,
So is everyone caught up on their mini album so far?

Before we get started...I thought I would share something really cool...Two of my fabulous followers who went on over to Cricut for Beginners the other day when I posted about their Birthday Bash Cartridge giveaway also won cartridges from me :) courtesy of Custom Crops. Be sure to check out Cricut for Beginners website. Lots of great info and a wonderful source for all you new Cricut owners.

Cricut for Beginners


Congrats to Penny and Jana....I hope you enjoy the Birthday Bash cartridge as much as I do....You can find the post with the winners HERE...

So are you ready for the next page to our mini album...


OK I had a small problem with the pictures. I lost them....Have no clue where they went. I uploaded them, used them at the end of the video and they disappeared. Very strange...

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend....
Hugs and happy crafting

  1. While I'm not making this particular album, I am getting wonderful tutoring on decorating mini pages which I'll use with my mini Your Story. Thanks, Christina. I have to get this paper too!

  7. I really like the idea of wetting the paper and distressing it and wrinkling it all up. What a great look. The paper choice for this mini album is darling too. Thanks for the wonderful tips.

  8. I love watching how you make decisions as you go. ( like putting the two tags together with the brad and the ribbon on the lollipop dlower) This mini is really getting cute!

  9. Why is it that you show me things on cartridge I have that I didn't even know existed. That little tab topper from the kitchen cartridge is the cutest thing every, never knew about it, thanks.

    Your book is incredible, such good ideas!!

    PS I got so excited when I saw Penny won, but it wasn't me, that figures I never win anything, but it sure made my heart skip a beat, congrat to "the other Penny" there aren't many of us out there :)

  15. I am so loving this mini. Can hardly wait to see it all put together. Your videos are completely awesome. Thanks for such great ideas.
    I also like when you don't say line it up "perfect". None of us are perfect. We just need to do our best. If someone wants perfection they either need to buy it or talk to God.
    Thanks again. You're always great!

    PS
    Sorry about the little attitude part there at the end.

  20. I am so excited that it is finally Friday :) I wasn't able to craft last weekend because I spent the whole weekend doing our taxes, yuck. Can't wait to do a book this weekend, I'm going to make a mini book as my hubby's 25th anniversary card, we are going on a trip to celebrate in May! You have such awesome ideas, I love how you make snap decisions like the tags together...Great work, super blog, keep it up, we all really love it!

  21. This album is coming out soooo cute. I have 3 boys and I just love this paper..I need to go get it and all the trimmings to go with it. Thanks for all the ideas..I need to write down all the cartridges that you are using or maybe at the end you can list them all.
    Thanks for teaching us such great simple things to do.

  22. Can this mini album get any cuter? I am loving all your great ideas. Love how you fly by the seat of your pants and get ideas while you are working. I do the same thing and change things up as I go. Wonderful ideas!!!! Can't wait to make one for myself.

  24. I too am making a different mini, but I needed some inspiration.I don't do too many mini's. (only 2) and they were not embellished much at all. So I wanted to get some ideas on how to lay out pages etc. I've learned a great deal from your videos. Thanks so much. You are a great teacher!
    Hugs, Jessica

  25. Christina, have I told you lately how awesome you are? You are! I love the way you just make it up as you go along. I know you have some things preplanned but still adapt, adjust as you video. It would take me days to come up with you do and then days to make a trial before taping. You make it all look so simple. THANK YOU!
    Haven't started mine yet but I plan to make one.

  27. Hi Christina, and thanks so much for showing us how to make this adorable mini-album. I've been making mine as you taught each class, and I have 3 covered chipboard pages left.... that's 6 sides of deliciousness waiting to be filled. Don't we have 3 more classes? Please say YES...
    Keeping my fingers crossed, tee hee
