Artbooking in August #3

It's week 3 of Artbooking in August and you should have hopped in from  Adeline's
(She is also the brain behind this hop, the girl who is keeping it all together for us)
Our Challenge was to create
1. a card
2. a two-page layout
3. a mini album
4. something NOT one of the above.
We could choose to make the items in any order. I...seem to be following the list.
So on with the Show!
First- I set my size dial to 6" and then just left it there.  (For the whole album.)
Then I cut all the base pages (p. 54-- photo mat 1)
I did this because the album is designed to flip open sideways in the artbooking cartridge
 but I wanted to use the new Flip Stand Album, so I needed my album to flip up.

I also inked the edges of EVERYTHING and then put it together as shown above

Now for the rest of the album.

 this is an easy way to make pumpkins  (see below)

I Hope you liked this little mini.  And I hope it inspired you to look outside of the box.  There are over 700 images on this cartridge and the ways in which you can use them are endless.  I started with 7 base pages and then just cut out a bunch of images and then put them together the way I wanted to.

Now let's go see what Paige has created.
