Mini Albums using the Artbooking Cartridge

Good Morning,

Today's video shows you some ideas on how to create your own Mini-Book using the Artbooking cartridge. The video features the Elegance keys found on pages 46 & 47. To create the book you would make sure your real dial size button is NOT pushed and instead set your size dial to 11". The reason you will do this is that this is the size shown in the artbooking book. The nice part of this is that each key on this theme will then cut proportionally to fit the 11" book... no guessing!  Each page is built beginning with stamping right on the base page, followed by images cut on your cricut and completed with your embellishments. 

The video also shows you how to create a similar album but at the 8" size this time. If you set your dial to that size, all the different page elements will cut proportionally. It takes all the guesswork out of creating with your cricut, and saves you time and money as well since you aren't cutting multiple pieces trying to get the exact right size that you need. In this second album you will see cricut pieces used that are NOT found on these keys and for those elements you will want to push the real dial size button and cut them to fit the space you are working in. I hope that makes sense. If not, feel free to leave a comment and I will help you out.

With a smile~ Tina
