Today I am featuring a Mini Album that was created using the Close to my Heart Cricut Cartridge "Artbooking". This particular cartridge is my personal favorite...the possibilities are endless. So let's get started.

This is the finished album. I used the Bind-it-All for the binding using a 3/4" this machine. This mini album was created for my BFF who is an incredible teacher and just a great lady!

Here is a side view of the album. This album measures 8" x 6" and as I mentioned was created using the Close to my Heart Artbooking cartridge for Cricut. If interested in this cartridge follow the link to the left.
Here is a closer look at the pages before binding. The paper pack is from Heidi Swapp 'Hello Today' (my favorite paper) and I used lots of Heidi Swapp stamps. If you have any questions, please, let me know. Or if you would like to see a video on how to create such a project leave me a comment.

The little page cards were a cut from the Artbooking cartridge and stamped with a note page stamp that was included in the Artbooking kit.

The outside of this pocket was white. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Peacok Feathers' to give it some color.

I used the Cricut Design Space to do the writing for me on this page.

Here is a link to view the video which shows this mini in action:
