Made With Love Mini Album

Made with Love Mini Album Workshop Kit


The Made with Love mini album workshop kit includes the Mix-in paper packet, Mix-in coordinating cardstock, white ribbon, and wood mini album cover needed to create this workshop. The wood cover features a die-cut heart shape that is used inside the album and comes with three rings for assembly. You can purchase the workshop kit with the For My Mother stamp set at a 25% discount, or you can choose a kit option without the stamp set.

Note that there are two versions of the stamp set, one with American spellings of words like “favorite” and one with British spellings (favourite). Because of the two stamp set versions, there are also two versions of the workshop kit, one with each stamp set. Both stamp set versions are available to all customers based on their preferences, so be sure to use the correct item number when placing your orders so you get the right version of the stamp set.

When creating this project, we recommend that you seal the wood cover and heart with a clear matte acrylic spray sealer. This will prevent stamped images from bleeding and becoming fuzzy. Seal the cover first and allow it to dry. Then carefully stamp the sentiment and images with black StazOn™ ink. This will give you a crisp, clean image.


The workshop also requires cutting images from the Cricut® Artbooking collection. Cut the project pieces from the Design Space file we’ve created for this project. In order to cut from the project file, you must own the Artbooking collection and have a Cricut® machine that is compatible with Design Space. If you already own the physical cartridge, a list of shapes to cut is also provided in the workshop instructions. The instructions can be downloaded from my website! =) Check out this amazing project – 20+ pages (not posted in order)!!

I think this would be an amazing family activity.  We’ve decided to take pictures of our elf, Jingles, and scrapbook his activities around the house in December.  Jingles comes just after Thanksgiving and leaves Jan 1 so it’s perfect for us.   Think of the special traditions, activities, and more that you can do with your family and put in this fun album.  What a great book to pull out a few months later to enjoy those meeting.

Games To Play

Games to Play

More on this fun Travel Album!  This is the Travel Album workshop I will host.  I got the workshop and directions from Ginni Candeleria.   What a trip down memory lane for me as we played some of the games I did as a kid.  Do you remember the license plate game?!  Such fun to pass the time.  The map of the USA, is cut from the “You are Here” Cartridge.  Many of the images are cut from this cartridge. The nice thing about the album was the multiple games in the book, allowing you to move back and forth between games and not lose track of where you were at or scores!

Do you remember this game?  Slug Bug?  Now, I’m informed that it’s called “Punch Buggy”.  This could be a East Coast vs West Coast terminology.   With four spots to keep track of the score, it was a great deal of fun.  We did add in PT Cruisers and Mini Coopers to the count for more variety.  Who can turn down a game of Hangman?  The “Go” piece is in a 2″x 2″ flip flap.  You write your word under the flap. This ensure good “gamemanship” (if that’s a word).

Last one I’ll share with you is the “fill-in-the-blank” games.  Definitely worth a few laughs and then some!   SG would ask us for the words and then read us the stories.  They were so silly and fun.

If you want to make the album as shown, you’ll need to pick up the Adventure Fundamental Pack of Paper (low quantity left) and matching Compliments.  Both are retiring on August 31 so time is short.  Modifications will need to be made for the Picture My Life Cards as well as a few other things.  I’d highly recommend the Adventure Cardstock Pack as well so you have matching cardstock to help with modifications.

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and letting me take a little .  I hope you got to smile as you read about these games and had a trip down memory lane.  Computers, sumpters – games are still more fun in person!

Travel Activity Book

Travel Activity Book

I found this wonderful Travel Activity Book from my friend Ginni Candelera.  I got the workshop directions and when I realized I was running out of time to cut and make it before we departed from Maryland, I reached back out and was so blessed she had one kit left.  When SG went off on her first backpacking trip, I worked hard to get it done!   Here are a few of the pages to show you how cool it is.

The workshop uses the Adventure Fundamental Paper Pack which is scheduled to retire here in a few weeks.   The Cricut Cuts are from the You Are Here Cricut Cartridge (over 700 images on this).  We are driving all around Oregon over the next several days and this book has provided a great deal of entertainment for us.  The album is a “Everyday Life” album.

 

Here’s a quick YouTube I made showing some more of the pages.  Ginni has created a very fun book that is invaluable to anyone taking road trips with older kids (and even adults) to help pass the time:

 

More pages to come in later blog posts!

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Stay tuned for the rest of the Travel Activity Book as we move around Oregon!  =)
