Saw this technique on SplitcoastStampers...and since I come from a Dutch family, I thought it would be a great technique to try out...the stamped images are made with two stamps, a swirl and a small flower, two colors of ink and a little bit of silver gel pen. Hope you like it

All the tags and tabs that hang over the edges of the book are double thick for extra durability. All edges are inked, a lot of things like the leaves are popped up for dimension. I used my cricut a lot, but also used rub ons, stamps, and even some old stickers and such.
This was such an exciting project for me to do. It is a 6 x 12 chipboard album, made from 12 x12 sheets of chipboard. I cut them in half on my trimmer, then covered in patterned paper, and then rounded all the corners. Since I had planned on doing a full page album, I had all my pics printed in 4x6 and wanted to use them all, so I had to come up with ways to conceal pictures in the album...and so it became an interactive book. The file folders you see on various pages were welded in design studio and flip down to show more pics. I used a variety of cartridges in this project too, but mostly Graphically Speaking...looooooooooove this cartridge. The go karts were made in design studio as well, as I didn't have a cut that really resembled a go kart. I apologize for so many pictures, but I am thrilled with the outcome and wanted to share the whole project with you all. Thanks for looking
