Here's what I have for day two, hope you like it!! I don't know if you are familiar with the "Smash" book but my project today is loosely based on this idea. My daughter wanted to make this for a friend of her's from school. The idea is to create a book that you can post things about friends, school and life in general almost like a journal. Only cooler!
Here is a list of the supplies that we used: My Your Story machine and 1 cover, Cricut Expression, Fabulous Finds cartridge, cricut Phrases cartridge, Hello Kitty cartridge, Hannah Montana cartridge, various scrap cardstock and decorative papers, jewels, & adhesive.
I first warmed up my Your Story machine, while it was warming up I cut several pieces of cardstock for the pages of our "Smash-type" book. After they were cut we put them in the order that my daughter wanted them and placed them in the cover, slid them in the "Your Story" machine and pushed the start button. This was the first time I used my Your Story machine, LOVE it!! ** One thing I forgot to do before I binded the pages was to score each page. I had to go back and score the pages after, which was a little hard to do**
While it was binding the pages to the cover we cut several different phrases,images, and frames from the Phrases cartridge we cut them various sizes ranging from 2-3" the frames were cut at 4" from the Fabulous Finds cartridge. We also used the negative image from the Hello Kitty card from yesterday (I try to save my scraps you never know what you can use them for in another project) and my daugher stuck it down to one of the pages inside the book. (It looked super cute!!)
Then we cut a heart from Hannah Montana cartridge along with her friends name to decorate on the front cover. We ended up not using the ribbon, but it would be cute if you wanted to! There are so many great things you could use for this project! Here is a picture of the cover we left room on the front in case she wanted to put a picture on it:
Hope you like our project for today!! Thanks for hopping along with us today!! Now on to your next stop: Amber http://pixiperfectcreations.blogspot.com/
