Fall Mini Album

This week at Cricut Mini Albums the theme was fall. I decided to make a book on my Gypsy. I have to say that this book was a real struggle to make. For some reason, my expression has been REALLY unhappy cutting cereal box weight cardboard. I even bought a Thick Cut blade, hoping that would help. It did not. I have no idea what the problem is, but it was extremely frustrating. Here is what I came up with:

The cartridges I used for this book are George and Basic Shapes, Mickey Font - for the "FALL", Sweethearts for the tree and leaves, Streach Your Imagination for the 1st leaf and Mickey and Friends for the second leaf. The cardstock was all Stampin Up and the patterned paper is from My Big Ideas.

You may recognize the front page of this little book. I made an almost identical card a few weeks ago. I liked it so much that I decided to use it for my album. Despite the challenges making this album I think it turned out pretty cute. I hope you all head over to Cricut Mini Albums, and try your hand at a fall album.

Other challeneges:
Baby Bud Design - fall
Marks Finest Paper/ Speedy's Friends - stitching
Inktegrity - fall
Craftalicious - anything goes
Little Red Wagon - something old (George and Basic Shapes Cartridge and SU paper) something new (My Big Ideas paper and Sweethearts cartridge)
Crazy 4 Challenges - fall
Pear Tree - free for all
Totally Paper Crafts - autumn

A la prochaine...

Back at you fello cricut mini Dt member. Your book is also oh so cute. i just love the paper selection you choose. When ever I make my books like this I just glue on the cricut die cuts because I also ran into the same problem when cutting cereal boxes too, so you are not the only one.

I love it! I love it!!! I keep telling myself that I'm gonna do a mini album like this and I haven't yet. I think I need to work on that tonight. At least get something going in my Gypsy so I'll have to finish it! Yours is just beautiful! Love all the fall colors. :)
