Weekly Challenge #44: Mini Album Challenge!

I've taken a couple of weeks off from doing alot of challenges. I've been really busy and the rest of the year will be no different. I know I'm busy for the next several weekends. Some family stuff and some crafty stuff.

This week I was thinking about an idea and it just happened to be something I could use for the Weekly Challenge with the Cricut Circle Blog - this week was to make a Mini Album.

The requirements were to use at least 2 cricut cuts and create a mini album.

A few months ago I came across this blog and found out that he actually is the person who created Campin' Critters. He is hosting a little Cartridge Callenge using of course Campin Critters. You should go check out Curt's blog here's the address:

This would EXPLAIN why on the E2 /HSN Banner Contest he has this hung on his cubile.

We recently went to a Covered Bridge festival in Rockville Indiana - and we stayed in an RV and went "camping". I didn't get a ton of photos so I only made a few different pages. Can I say one of my favorite cartridges has to be Campin' Critters? I love love love this cartridge. I have used it to make a Banner for the E2 HSN launch using this cartridge.

My favorite cuts on the the cartridge has to be the Moose Taking photos and the porcupine roasting marshmellows. I also love the shadow feature and the way the cuts are always perfect aligning on this cartridge.

I welded the Moose to a 5x5 square and cut him out again to make the top and bottom pages.
The rest of the pages are just cut at 5x5 and put a little 3x3 photo mat on it.
The animals very in size.

I also love Flocking the antlears on the Moose and using Google eyes. I think it just gives it a little more movement and fun.

I added a few stickles here and there like on the flame and on the marshmellow.

The paper is from Imaginisce, Happy Camper Line. Which when it was released I had searched all over the place for it. I love the cute yet pretty paper. I fell in love with this paper and is a really close 2nd to being my favorite paper line.

Happy Scrappin'
