Made it Myself Mondays................

Happy Monday everyone! I am so excited that my sweet friend Alex over at You Had Me At Craft is now hosting "Made It Myself Mondays" every week! I am so excited to get some motivation and inspiration!!! If you're interested in joining in, click the button below and link up!

Since I did not have anything new to share I decided to dig back and find an oldie. This has to be one of my favorite projects I have ever made, a mini album I created for my hubby!!!!!! I saved cereal boxes and used them for my bases of the book and designed the pages in my Gypsy. If you want an amazing tutorial then check out Momo's blog, she has a great tutorial on how to make this album!  
  • The largest page is 4" x 10 1/2".
  • Each page is cut about a 1/2" smaller.
  • I welded the letters sized at 3.75" from the Old West Cartridge to rectangles from the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge.
  • Owl is cut at 2 3/4" Create a Critter Cartridge (all other cuts listed are from this Cartridge)
