Guest Designer Dawn Jedda

Here are the details of the Pro Player Mini Album, by my new Guest Designer Dawn Jedda.  (AKA my Daughter)  I took the pictures on my cell phone and for some reason I couldn't quit shaking so they aren't very good.  I will apologize for them now. Most of this Mini Album was cut on the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  The paper pack is called Pro Player and it comes with coordination cardstock in these 4 colors, Slate, Black, Ruby and Pacifica.  She also used Slate Polka-Dot Washi tape, Pro Player Assortment, Slate Striped Twist Ties, Durables Round Studs and Slate and Creme Brulee Bakers Twine.  Dawn used Tech Speak and The Workshop On The Go Stamp sets from pages 32 and 35 in the New Autumn Winter 2013 Idea book.

 All the little pieces on the front of the book were cut off the cartridge also.
 This page has a pocket and the paper that is inserted in side is from the cartridge too.  When i cut the white paper for Dawn I didn't realize how big it was going to cut out so I used a large scrap but it cut larger than I expected and ended up with half the arrow cut out of the edge.  We both thought it was pretty cool how it turned out and Dawn decided to use it in the book anyway.  She drew the lines on to make it look like notebook paper.  There is a smaller stamp in the 3 sets that actually looks like that paper, so you don't have to draw the lines.

 On this page Dawn cut an envelope and tag to go inside the envelope.  She added Washi tape and the twist tie.
 Dawn went threw some of my older embellishments and found some Red studs and swirls that go great in the book too.
 The joined circles on the right page are an overlay from the Artbooking cartridge and again another notebook paper.
 Here are Zack, Hailey, Keyanna, Kobe, Jordan and Alex all playing games in my living room.  Kylie and Mary must have been outside when we took this pic.  This is a normal site at my house.
 Zack got bored playing games and decided to play the Keyboard that Grandpa picked up recently.
 He jokingly said he was picking one up for all the grandchildren.  However I don't know where he is going to put them.  He loves to encourage them to play music of any kind.  Jordan Plays the Clarinet and Zack is hoping to play the Saxophone when School starts up. My Son James played the Sax in school too.
 The one page that didn't get finished before my Party on Saturday.  Dawn added a pocket to the right page and the connected circles adhered to the inside of the back.  This would make a great Connect 4 game background for a page if someone plays connect 4 a lot.

I love how this little Mini Album turned out.  Dawn did such a wonderful job.

 Dawn created this adorable little mini album by cutting the coordinating images from the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart.  Once you select which mini you want to make, the book tells you what size to cut them,  This one was cut at 8".  All of the pages and overlays including the animals are from 2 pages in the Artbooking handbook, p50 & p51.  Each piece that goes with the selected mini album automatically cuts the right size for the album.  No guessing or having to use the real dial size button and calculating the correct size.   Dawn used Chocolate, Sunset, Buttercup, Slate and Whisper cardstock to cut the main pieces of this album.  Then used the new Babycakes paper to decorate some of the pages and inside the envelopes.  She also used the Brown glitter paper along with Burlap ribbon and Bronze Glitz glue. 
How cute is this little Giraffe?
 Dawn asked my other Guest Designer Tarina to help decorate this little mini album.  They used some buttons with hemp, chocolate Grosgrain ribbon and washi tape to decorate the pages.
 Top one has the envelope open and the bottom pic has the envelope closed.
 They added pockets and tags with Organdy ribbon and words cut from the Cricut.
How cute is the adorable little lion cut from our Burlap Ribbon. This was an addition from Tarina and was perfect for the page.

  Tarina added a page scalloped oval for journaling. 
 The back page is an envelope and has a tag that is large enough to hold a 4 x 6 picture, on both sides and other memorabilia too.  

Here is another creation by Dawn, using the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  I helped her embellish it and add pics.  She did the hard work.
On the front cover you can see where she did some stitching.  This is where that nifty little Stitching Guide would come in handy.  She also did some stamping. I added some of the flowers including Base and Bling Floral Accents and the picture of my granddaughters and great nieces eating frozen GoGurt in my front yard.
Again I just added the Pic and flowers.
I added the Camera behind the pic for a photo mat, stamped the spray from the Love This stamp set.  The butterfly on the page below is from the same set.
I only added pictures to these pages.  I love these overlays.
I gathered pictures of 10 things that Mary loves and made little tags to go on the other page.  I then asked Mary in what order did she want them.  Dawn and I figured Mud would be number 1, as you can count on her getting in the Mud.  Mary said Family should be in the number 1 spot.  We were impressed.  Mary is such a sweetheart.

I wanted to focus on the picutres so I kept the embellishments minimal.

Thank you Dawn for designing these great little Mini Albums for me.
