Welcome to the GreenHearts’ BlogHop! If you've arrived from Pam's Blog then you are on the right track! This month we are featuring the CTMH - Balloon Ride papers and embellishments, in my case the Project My Life (PML) Balloon Ride cards.
I've always been one the think outside the box. I've been dreaming of ways to use these fabulous cards in a completely different application. (Yes, a scrapbook in my dreams).
Explosion Mini Album using Balloon Ride PML.
The size of these cards are perfect for mini albums, what a great gift idea!
The flaps are 6-1/4 x 4-1/4 (4)
The flaps are 6-1/8 x 4-1/4 (2), you need to trim the PML card to size.
Once you open the two side flaps, the center piece is a great little pocket. You can add tags for more photos and journaling.
Materials used are all CTMH (expect for the front brads those are BoBunny)
- 4 Cashmere CS sheets
- 5 Saddle CS sheets
- 2 Colonial White CS sheets
- Durables Artisan Studs
- Trinkets Wooden Shapes
- Natural Hem
- Project My Life Balloon Ride cards
Cricut pieces are from the Artbooking cartridge, all shapes were cut at 6". I love how everything came together. The photo mat sizes are perfect for this size mini album. 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 and 3 x 4.
