My Cricut Craft Room Scrapbook Friday Aug.17th- Mini Album



Hello crafting friends!!  I was very excited about today's theme--Create a Mini Album.
I have been wanting to create a board book for sometime! I felt very intimidated at first!
I have to say that using the Cricut Craft Room to make this was wonderful!! It was easier than I thought it would be.  I did have a little problem with the weld feature and  my crafty friends helped me out!

I used Elegant Edges, and Create a Critter Cricut Cartridges, and the CCR today.

First I chose the design of my book with Elegant Edges.   Then I chose the animals I wanted to use.  I used the shadow features welded to my design so the animals were the book.  I made sure to keep my length the same for the book, but made the pages wider.   I used chipboard, black paper for the front of the book and white on the inside.  I also cut out decorative pages with the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I did not bind it yet, I need some smaller jump rings and did not have them on hand.  I cut out the layers to the animals and glued them on.  I like to use Elmer's rubber cement to adhere the cardstock to the chipboard.  (my mom used this all the time when she scrapbooked, she hooked me on it!)

I used a rub on for the cover and monkey rub on's too. 
I loved making this!  I will make more for sure, I'm thinking about a Halloween Theme next!!  Here is a picture of my finished book:
