Winter Wonderland snowflake
This is one of the pages in my newest chipboard album called "Winter Wonderland". It is a pocket page that holds four large tags. Each tag acts as a mat for a 4" x 6" photo. I put little snowflake brads in the hole of each tag. The focus point on the page is the large decorative snowflake on the pocket itself. I cut the pocket and tags from the Cricut Mini books cartridge using Craft Room, where I was able to enlarge them to suit my book. I also cut the decorative snowflake using Cricut, from the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland cartridge. I love this cartridge! I bought the universal overlay to use with it, since it is a newer cartridge that does not come with an overlay. Also, the instruction book is very much smaller, and I find it a lot easier to read than the older format, especially for layering images. I layered blue and white cardstock to make the snowflake, which is Option 26 on the cartridge. I did not use Craft Room for this project--I just set my size to 3" and all four layered images cut beautifully and layered perfectly to make the snowflake. I did add a small glitter brad to the center of the snowflake before adhering it to the outside of the pocket. I know it is nowhere near to snow here, but I do think snow may soon be coming to parts of the country. I had fun making this page of the book. The whole mini book is nearly complete--it is a flip album with 6 pages front and back. I used the blue and brown Magenta paper throughout, supplemented with blue, white, and brown Bazzill cardstock. Lots of deer and snowflakes!
