Sand Pail Mini Album....

Hello everyone. My name is Ronnie and I have the honor of sharing with you a project created with Life's a beach, the cartridge of the month. I hope you like it.

Supplies needed

Cartridges….Life is a beach/Alphalicious/Doodle Charms

Papers of your choosing, some solids, some pattern..I am using a pack from Club Scrap..

Adhesives + red line double sided sticky tape

Ink Pads (browns for the sand, and colored to match your papers)

Embossing folders

Glimmer mist

Beach buttons

Ribbons and fiber to match papers

Clip it with coordinating clips

Stapler with beach themed staples

Beach themed die cuts to embellish with

To make this album, happily get your "G" turned on and ready to roll. For the base page you will need 2 of the sand pails on your screen, both the same size. In 1 set you will use the hide contour to hide everything except that little pile of sand. And on the other hide everything but the pail. You then need to arrange the sand pile onto the top of the pail and weld it there. It is gonna look like a bunch of goobly-goo but it will be ok, once you hit the preview button all you will see is a cute little pail filled with sand. This then becomes your base pages for your mini album. The rest is easy after that.

So know you have your base page all set to go, now you can do the same thing for all the different parts of the pail, using hide/contour on all the different levels of the book and pages. The finished book will be 5x7.
So now I normally cut 1 page and set of page elements just to make sure that everything has stayed the size and in the spots I welded them. Once I know all that stayed the same, it is time to cut your base pages as many as you would like. Then start cutting your papers to make the base pages complete.
Once I have my base pages inked, chalked, misted and adhered, it is time to move on to the embellishing. On each page I did the sand dunes on the page bottom, just to keep with theme and it is a great place for extra embellies.
I used a variety of embellishing tool, and extra die cuts. Fibers, and ribbons, cute little sea shells, sand dollars, and star fish. A title, some clip its, die cuts from cricut, a photo mat and it is ready for a photo
I hope you enjoy the mini album. The file was also created in CDS as well as Gypsy, for those who do not have the "G"
