Garden Tour 2010 Photo Album

I made this album using a premade album, Stickers, Chipboard, and some Cricut Cuts.

I purchased this album at a LSS because I knew I would have plenty of pics of my garden to put in it this year.  I just finished it the other night.  The album came with 6 board pages that needed covered with cardstock, but I needed more.  I traced around the last page with my exacto knife to create addnl pages, 1 for each front and back page.

I glued these together and punched holes with my big bite.  I inserted the home made pages in between the board book pages to give them stability because the were not as sturdy as the board pages.

Front Cover

"Chirp" cut with cricut and Songbird(I love that cartridge)

I was running out of room for all of my picture's, so I cut a 5.5 " by 12" card stock and scored at 3.75, and 7.5 and folded so I had 3 places for pics on the front and 2 places for pics on the back.  I was able to get 5 pics in a space that one pic would normally take up.  I attached a ribbon and tied the package shut.  I did this 4 times throughout the album, so I got 20 pics in the space of 4.

Watering can cut from Walk in  my Garden.

bloom cut from Song Bird.

The photo album had 10 double sided  pages total and held 35 pictures.
Hope you enjoyed it,  Beth.
