Use tabs on your layout or project
I have been wanting to do a tabbed mini album for a couple of years now. I got the Fabulous Finds cartridge for my Cricut a couple of years ago and these tabby folders are one of the cuts on the cart. I thought they would make a fun mini, but put it on back burner. Last week my friend, Erika, issued a challenge to use tabs on your layout or project and I knew instantly that it was time to make the tabby mini!
I just spent the weekend of my birthday in Portland, with my dad and step mom, visiting gardens and zoos to have fun and take lots of photos. Boy, did I take lots of photos! On the way home we stopped at a craft store and they had me pick out a few things. I have had my eye on Take Note by Echo Park and it fit perfectly with my idea of a tabbed mini. It was just the best weekend and it was capped off by returning home to find my son and his friends planned a surprise luau party for me. Complete with dinner and a dark chocolate mousse cake! They really are such great kids.
One of the sayings that came in this paper kit was, "The best things in life are not things". That saying pretty much explains how I felt about the whole weekend. The time spent with my dad and step mom is priceless to me as is the fact that my son and friends went out of their way to surprise me. My pages are about 5.5" wide and 3.5" tall. Since it is a cut file, you can make them any size you want! Almost all the photos are wallet sized. I cut the tabbed pages out of cardboard and covered in paper while the insides are just cardstock with the tabs trimmed off. Some of the pages are doubled to make a pocket to insert my journaling in. I also used a couple of envelopes that I made to stick another photo in.
I am definitely going to be making more of these little albums!
The mini - grande mini more like it
