I'm so far behind at posting...ugh. This was the mini album I made for my son, Shannon for Father's Day. He loves to read, loves all types of music, and is so busy. Besides working full time in a college library, having three children and a wife that works full time, he is going to school. I still don't know when he sleeps.
I wanted to make a mini that would bring out his sense of humor (twisted I might add), some of the people he admires or just plain likes, and basically just make him laugh. I left plenty of room for him to jot down notes, quotes and thoughts. In fact, that's the title of his mini - THOUGHTS.
All the pages were cut (Including the ring holes) from the Cricut using DCWV Eco and Safari papers . I used scrabble embellishment tiles ( I bought them at Hobby Lobby), the flowers are generally Prima.
I didn't want a bow to hold the covers closed, so I went with a ribbon belt.
Here is the basic cover set up. I cut three of the same shapes on my Baby Bug using my Gypsy. Chipboard is sandwiched between two pieces of card stock (note "from experience" : remember to flip the one page cover so the holes align - they don't if it's not flipped.)
