"Daring Adventure" Timberline Kraft 3-Ring Binder Album

Have you made any of the mini-albums on the Artbooking Cricut cartridge yet? If not, you may not know how versatile they are.

Did you know:
  • The cartridge includes 10 albums, each with a different theme and size? 
  • You can mix and match pages from any that have the same vertical dimension?
  • Any of the pages that are 8" tall will fit in our Kraft 3-ring binder?



For example, I made with the Timberline papers & Stickease plus a Kraft binder. Cutting the pages out on the Cricut and using the ready made stickers made this project crazy quick.

Mixing and matching the 8" pages on the Artbooking cartridge adds interest asyou can see from the side view shown below.


I used images from pages 38, 39, 40, 41, 44, 45, 48, 49, 50 & 51 of the Artbooking handbook. These are the mini-albums that have 8" as the first dimension. For all of the pages, I left the size dial set to 8" (NO Real Dial Size) so that all of them cut to fit in the album perfectly.

Note that some of the page are half size which adds even more interest as you layer them together.


For some of the pages, I choose to cut titles from the many choices on the Artbooking cartridge. Be sure to leave room to add pictures and journaling.


This is in the corner of one of my favorite pages. I roughed up the edges of the cardstock with an edge distresser and mounted the tent on 3D foam tape for dimension. A little baby powder on the back of the sticker keeps it from sticking to the base page along the edges and center where there is not tape.


Remember, you can make an album like this with ANY papers. I choose Timberline and did a camping theme, but your choices are virtually unlimited. 

So pick a paper pack and gather up coordinating stickers and embellishments. Once you cut your pages, cut loose and get creative decorating your pages.


Don't forget that the Artbooking cartridge also includes titles and other images to fit almost any theme. 


Have fun and keep creating!
