Grammy's Mini-Book

Hi friends,
Today I've got a very easy project to share with ya! I made this mini-book for my grammy.
Here it is:
It's not a blurry pic. It's the acetate cover that's creating the glare :(

And here are the inside pages:
Back cover page:
See, it is a mini-book- only 4 pages :)
The reason why I made this book is that my grammy was bummed the rest of the family & her friends didn't get to see the flower doggie I bought her for her b-day. Click---> HERE to see it. I didn't tell her I took pics of it, so I'm surprising her with this mini-book. I'll be adding the doggie pics later.

To make this mini-book, I used the Mother's Day Cricut Cart. It's actually the coupon book, but I changed it to a mini-album :) I cut that at 5" as well as the acetate front & back covers. I used the beautiful Mimosa Papers from SEI for the mats & just about everything in this book. All the flowers came from the following carts: Mother's Day, Indie Art, and Love Struck. The Pebbles Inc. ribbon secures the book. The beautiful "Grandma" title is one of the words on the Mother's Day cart.

Cutting Acetate: I set my blade at 6, Pressure Max, & set it at Multi-cut 3 & it cut it out beautifully. No need for the deep cut blade.

The Love Struck cart, Pebbles Inc Ribbon, & Mimosa Collection are on sale at the YMH Store so check them out!

Thanks so much for peeking! Mom's Day came so quickly and I've still got a few cards to make!
Gotta Go!

  2. Aww now see Karli I didn't pick that Mom's day cart up because I "thought" I didn't need it and now you go and make this super cute project with those super cute flowers and make me want to get it :) I'm sure your Grammy will love it.
