Base Pages for my Alice in Wonderland Mini Albums.



  What do these albums have in common?
They both started with Cricut cuts from Exclusive CTMH Cricut Cartridges 

Here is a quick run down of the Cartridges & images I used.
Although I used most of the same images in both albums
I varied the order of the pages and even the pages that I included in each album

Cut one “decorative layer/shift”
And one “square” to make the base for the Keyhole

Quick tips:
·         Vary the sizes of the pages
·         Cut two of one image and make a pocket page
·         Cut one “page” image and then use this as the guide for punching your holes. 
·         Don’t be scared by weird shaped images, you can always trim one edge so it will fit into an album
·         Vary the order of the pages
·         Experiment, you never know what an image can become
