Cookie Sheet Mini album / Home Decor piece

Hello everyone!! It's my turn again to be a guest designer at She's a Sassy Lady !! I decided to use an actual cookie sheet to showcase these great pictures of our niece and my mother-in-law baking cookies! This project was a little challenging since I haven't been home to my craft room since June 30th! We are traveling with my husband where he works so I made this project in our hotel room using the limited amount of craft supplies that I brought with me! These Club Ruby kits are perfect to take with me because they contain so many wonderful elements!  I was able to use my Mom's Cricut when we made a quick trip to Ohio! Yay!! I had my cuts all designed on my Gypsy so that made it really easy!!  I also used Paper Layerz for some of the cuts! This paper is awesome!!  To check out this paper click HERE!
Here it is all done and folded up! Now I'll go into more detail as to how each element was created.

I started with a 10.5"x15.5" cookie sheet.

I just love this paper from the Club Ruby Designers June kit!  This perfect ribbon is from Hobby Lobby!
This is a sheet of Paper Layerz paper by Megan Elizabeth! This paper is just awesome! Check out the link HERE or above!  This pic is before cutting.

Here is my Gypsy screen showing exactly where my cuts will be.

This is that same sheet of paper after cutting. You can see how much room I have left on this sheet!

My Gypsy screen for the next cut.

Close-ups of the cuts.


I cut a slit in this fold-out for the ribbon to hold it closed.


All buttoned up!
The top fold-out unfolded once.

Unfolded twice.

Unfolded three times.
Close-up of these die-cuts. I just love them!
All the way open.
I used the tag in the June kit to journal the 3 pics in this fold-out. I used the sticker numbers to number the pics and the tag.
Close-up of the cupcake. This cut was from Everyday Paperdolls.

Title made with the sticker letters in the June Kit.

Rest of the title: Chum is how my mother-in-law is affectionately referred to as by all the little grandkids! :-)

Here is how it looks all opened up.  When I get home, I plan on adding stickles and other embellishments to spruce it up a bit! 
Hope you enjoyed looking at this project today! Stop back soon!
