Cricut Mini Series - Cricut Mini Album

On my YouTube channel(FayRaiDesigns) I  do a Cricut mini album series. I take a Cricut cartridge and create a mini album.  This is a fun crafting project just seeing what I can create with Cricut cartridges. So here is the latest mini but if you want to see more, head on over to my YouTube channel and check it out.

October Tag Swap

Every so often Stephanie Miller (Steffogal1 - YT) does a tag swap.  It is an event that everyone wants to be a part of.  This has been going on for a while.  Well, I finally got in on one of her swaps.  I received 20 stamp tags and some goodies to boot.  So what did I do with my tags?  A mini of course.  Yes, I made a mini to showoff my tags.  I got the inspiration from Jane(velocityvette1 - YT).  She has a tutorial for creating a mini that I just had to try.  So here is a sneak peek.  If you want to see the mini in its entirety then check out my YouTube channel (FayRaiDesigns).

There is a lot of talk in the mini album making arena about the best way to attach the pages of a mini album. It started with Laura D. "stack the deck" method and Kathy O. "hidden hinge".  Then a YouTuber named Ozegran created the "stacked hinge".  This is the method that I tried in this mini.  I followed the instructions given in a tutorial by Sheryl (gemzisle on YouTube) and I love how this turned out.  It is in my plans to make many more of these.
