Artbooking Made Easy: Summer Mini Albums

Today's video, Artbooking Made Easy (S01E03): Summer Mini-Albums, is the third in the video series Artbooking Made Easy. Please stop back each week until April 2014 to view the next video in the series. Each has tips and tricks for using the Artbooking collection.

The CTMH Corp. description of Artbooking Made Easy (S01E03): Summer Mini-Albums is "From grilling to swimming, camping, and road-tripping, Close To My Heart makes it easy for you to capture your summer memories in fun, unique mini-albums. See how they're made with the new Cricut® Artbooking collection."

A few points I want to be certain that you do not miss while watching the video:
  • set the size for layouts at 11 inches
  • set the size for artbooks/mini book from 6 to 11 inches depending on the size printed in the booklet; the finished size of artbooks range from 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" to 8 1/2" x 11'
  • the same two summer theme keys were used to create both artbooks in the video
  • to cut images to use with the coordinating stamp sets use the size printed on the carrier sheet; set your machine so Real Dial Size is ON
  • do not embellish in the gutter so you have room for binding; this is where the page goes into the binder or the edge is bound
  • the gutter was created so binding does not damage the overlays
  • place your mini book in a binder like the My Creations® Kraft 3-Ring Album (Z1871) or bind with Bakers Twine, jump rings, hemp or ribbon
If you have missed earlier videos in the Artbooking Made Easy series, I am maintaining a list so they are easier to find. Just look for CTMH Cricut® Artbooking Collection in the green bar above.
