Mini Album w/your Cricut #6

Hi everyone...
Today we start the last page in our mini album and we'll work on binding. I  had a lot of fun working on this mini and reading all your comments. Such sweet comments.

Later tonight I will do a post that will list all of the videos in one post and then tomorrow we'll post for those that made a mini album or who worked on the 12 month scrapbook challenge for March to link their projects...Maybe we'll even have a little giveaway too...

Now on to the last video in the series....


Have a great Monday
Hugs and happy crafting,

  1. YAY! Now I know how to bind my album. Thanks for all the detail you showed us in the series. I am slowly working on my first "from scratch" mini, and it is coming along nicely, thanks to you and your tutorials.
    I hope I can get further along with it this week and figure out how to post it here.
    Could you do a Q&A answer session next relating to questions you received during this series?
    Also, do you have a Cricut cartridge wish list? What is the next new cartridge you plan to get?
    Thanks again for a great blog!

  12. I loved this mini album series. I have never thought about doing one of these until now. I enjoy all the details you showed especially about the cinch! I was not sure the bind it all product would work in the cinch now I know it does. Thanks so much for inspiring me to go outside my comfort zone.

  16. Christina thank you so much for doing this series I have really enjoyed watching it great job!

  17. Great job Christina - such a cute book! May I offer a tip that I learned? When setting up your pages for binding, put all your pages in order, then take the back page and bring it to the front, then put them on the wire to bind. That way the closing of the binding is at the back page instead of the font. I think it makes it lay better also. I appreciate you doing these videos - it really does help seeing it done. Thanks again!!

  26. Enjoyed it? I LOVED it! I just became a great aunt 1 week ago today. So I put in my order for the pictures I want so that I can make my first mini album to give to my Mom. (This is her first great grandbaby) I'd have never known how to do it if it wasn't for you. Thank you so much! I can hardly wait to start my own album. You and your videos are amazing!
    Thanks

  27. Loved this series. Although I love them all, this one is my favorite. I think because although you use the Cricut for some of the cuts, they aren't things we can only do if we have that cartridge. I don't have a lot of carts, so sometimes I have to figure out other ways to do things and this book is very easy to do that with. I haven't made a book yet, but I'm hoping to get to it soon.
    Thanks so much for this fabulous series, all the great ideas, tips and techniques!

  33. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    This was my first completed mini, I have tried a page or two before but never knew what to do to make it more interesting this series was AWESOME!! Your ideas and tips helped so much.

    I am so in love with my mini!!! I used most of your techniques when I could and finally used my webster's pages 6X6 paper collection I had for a year!! Its elegant and simple yet full of interactive elements thanks to you!

    I just bought the cinch and was feeling guilty for caving in last week because I have a bind it all (not easy to use and don't like the hole's either) but when I saw you use it I felt so happy for having pruchased it. I can't bind my mini until it comes in but thanks to you I know how!

  35. Christina, which binder do you prefer? Cinch or Zutter and if you don't mind sharing why you prefer one over the other. I thinking about purchasing one.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow I am so ready I want to make one of these and probably lots more. Im going to CK scrapbook convention this weekend and hope maybe to find the cinch if not then I have looked for the best deal online stores and will order. I have been looking at some of my supplies. I love the videos you did for this as I had no idea what to do and really helped to see your thought process. I am a visual learner and you helped me so much Thanks for the time you took to do this. I really appreciate it and am so inspired. Hugs to you.

  40. Oh Christina your mini came out so FUN and cute! I have to try my Cinch one of these days! The shaped albums I have been doing is just not conducive to that type of binding yet! Ugh....soon!!!

    Also, I had heard that you really can't bind 3/4" rings with the Cinch...is that true? Have you tried that size binding yet?
