Mini Album with Timeless, Your Story Book and Cricut Expression

I love these photo's of my girlfriends' daughter. She's just a little cutie pie. About the time I recieved the photo's I also received my "Your Story" book system and I was dying to play with it.

As you know I love mini albums and I was very excited to pair up the "TIMELESS" & "BLINGAGE" collections with the 8x8 YOURSTORY book. I created each page using the ELEGANT EDGES Cricut Expression Cartridge. I love that I was also able to create matching borders, frames and Silhouettes using the same cartridge. The Elegant Edges cartridge features a "Book Template" which is what used to create this mini album. 

On the cover I created the cute stamped border using the "Timeless" matching stamp set. I stamped my first row then flipped the stamp around and stamped the second row to create the damask border. I added a spot of glue and added Gentry's glitter to the center. I layered the pieces and added dimension with ThermOWeb's 3D foam squares.

I used the Blingage Alphabet stamp letter H inside the Timeless frame and added Gentry's Glitter and popped it up above the border strips using foam squares too!

I love this Scallop page, it's perfect with the Timeless paper!

There are so many uses with this Elegant Edges cartridge, it's my most used to date!! I created the clock scallop circle using it too!

Clearly I love scallops and circles and the Timeless papers are just perfect for this! I separated 3 pearls from "Donna's Gems" blingage strips and added them to the scallop circle edge to pull the circles all together.

I layered Zach's book plate over one of the Timeless pre-printed tags to make it look wider and even more elegant then added the word "Lovely" using the 3D foam squares to pop it out of the book plate.

This book was so much fun to create! It was so easy to create using the Elegant Edges Cartridge and all the choices it offers! I can't wait to create another "Your Story" book after trying my hand with this one I am inspired to create so many more... I have an idea for trying my had at creating an art journal with it too!
