I saw a post on the Cricut MB of a journal that for Thanksgiving. In the journal, all of your family and guests would write what they are thankful for. I thought this was a great idea and that I would make one for us. Here is what I came up with.
This was my first time making a complete mini album - cover and all. I am so pleased with how this came out.
Here are the details!
- Thanksgiving - cover and pages, title, some of the leaves, hat and turkey
- George - holes in the cover and pages
- Gypsy Wanderings - leaves
- Create a Critter - leaf
- B is for Boy - leaves
I used the card on the Thanksgiving cart for my cover and pages. Once I realized that I could use the same layout for the cover and pages, I was off and running. I put small circles on the card for the holes and removed the score marks. I cut the cover out of chipboard (an old ceral box) and cut the pages out of 12x12 cardstock.
The other pages that are empty will be the pages that I put pictures from the day on. I will bring this out next year to show everyone and have a new one for everone to write in. I think I just started a new tradition for us! Thanks for looking!
