Mini Squash Book Album


This is what it looks like opened :)

This is my first squash book album. I made it for a gift, and just crossed my fingers that it would come out alright. I thought they looked really hard to make, but aren't at all.
I didn't want to embellish the outside too much, because she may want to carry it in her purse, so decided to just add "Mommy's Brag Book" on the front. I took it to work to show a few friends, and came home with 3 orders to make more!

My first Tri-Shutter card

So, I saw these tri-shutter cards on the Cricut site message board, and didn't really like them at first. But, I've seen so many really pretty ones that I have changed my mind. The ladies on there are sooo creative!
Anyways, I decided to try one last night. I used paper I am not real crazy about so I wouldn't feel bad when I gave up and threw it away, but, it turned out to be fairly easy to make, and I like the way it turned out.
If you are interested in trying one, there is a good how-to video on the Split Coast Stampers website - click here.
