Pinkalicious Blog Hop - School Album

First Day of School - Album

Welcome to the Pinkalicious Blog Hop. This is where all the My Pink Stamper Designers get to show off our projects using My Pink Stamper High Quality Photo Polymer Stamps. If you are just starting to Hop, then go back to the beginning at Robyn (My Pink Stamper). If you have Hopped here from Alex (You Had Me At Craft) then you are in the right place.

We were challenged to make a 3D project using the Cricut and My Pink Stamper's School Day's Stamp Set.

My oldest daughter starts Preschool next week. So I wanted to make a Mini Album with pictures from her 1st day of school. Mini Albums are fun because they are Quick & Simple. To make the base of the 6"x6" Album, I used 2 sheets of 12"x12" black cardstock. Cut each sheet in half. That gives you 4 - 6"x12" pages. Then score each page at 6". Fold all the pages in half on the score line. Then overlap the pages and adhere them together. Then you will have an accordion style album that can sit up on a table to show off the beautiful pictures.


 The whole album

Backpack - Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge - Button #38 - cut 2.5"

Apple - Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge - Button #37 - cut 2"
Ariel - handwritten by my 4 year old


Scissors - Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge - Shift Button #27 - cut 2.75"


Pictures of it standing up

Finding a nice paper line with great patterns and colors, definitely makes making an album easy. I used We R Memory Keepers - White Out Collection - Nonsense - 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper. I love how this album turned out and I can't wait to take the pictures and put them in.

Thank you for checking out my project and I hope I inspired you with this Simple Creation. The next stop on the Hop is 
Renee (RockinRenee). If you lose your place along the way, see the Blog Hop Order is below.

  6. I really like this idea, it is a great way to showcase pictures! One question? how did you get your paper to looked "weathered"? I'm new to the game and I don't think I've seen this technique but I really like it!! Thanks and enjoy your weekend
