Cooking with Cricut Challenge #101 - Where Did Summer Go?

Welcome to another challenge Wednesday here and over at COOKING WITH CRICUT! This week's challenge is asking the question, "Where did Summer Go?" Doesn't it always go by way too fast??

This is a mini book made with A2 envelopes and cards that we made in a kids papercrafting class that I taught before the kids went back to school.  It's a great way for them to document all of their many summer memories and pics!

You need 8 cards and 8 envelopes and various cardstock colors and stickers depending on your theme.

I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more cartridge for the tags throughout my book and George and Basic Shapes for the mats on the envelope and card fronts.

I will be posting a full tutorial soon with all the details of sizes and such. (I am currently out of state at my daughter's house as she just had a new baby so I am pretty busy being Mom and Grandma!) :-)

Here are more pics of the inside pages and inserts:

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to head on over to COOKING WITH CRICUT to link up your own "Where Did Summer Go?" creation for a chance at a great prize!

Jen I love your envelope mini album. Such bright and fun colors and cuts. I definitely need to make some of these since I have so many envelopes. Thanks for the inspiration.

What a fun idea, Jennie! Love the fun, summery colors and cuts. I bet my daughter would love to make one of these -- can't wait to see the tutorial.
