Here is a sample of a page in my 50 states album. I still have to mark the capitol and include the journaling (the flag flips open to reveal where the journaling will go). The album is 8x8. I used stickles on 'Alabama' to make it more visible, as the color I am using for the states is a dark plum. The state is cut at 4". The flower and the bird are cut at 2 1/2" and the flag is cut at 3". The envelope that I am using to hold the quarter is from Fabulous Finds, using the Windows feature (pg. 111 in handbook), cut at 2". I cut up some squares of the plastic that covers Cricut cartridges and Cuttlebug embossing folders and slid them inside so the quarter doesn't fall out.
I'll post Alaska next (sans the state quarter that either hasn't been released yet or I have not found one yet).
I love to scrapbook and make cards in my spare time. With 3 busy little boys my spare time is rare, but I wouldn't have it any other way. This is a place to share my work with you. Please leave a comment and let me know that you have visited! I hope you enjoy what you see.
