Graphic 45 Mon Amour | Silhouette Cameo | Mini Album Tutorial

Mini album7

Hello,

I cannot wait to share with you guys a closer look at this mini album that I made using my Silhouette software and Cameo as a DT project for PPS. I cannot tell you enough how easy it is to make an album or any paper project once you own a Cameo. It is a great paper cutting machine!

I used mostly the Graphic 45 Bon Amour 12×12 pattern papers and embellishments for this album.

So, for the pattern papers I chose the Patterned Paper 65lb Silhouette setting.

Most often than not the machine suggested settings are accurate.

The Mini Album cutting file is the Lori Whitlock Chipboard Mini Album bought from the Silhouette Design store. It comes with a very easy to follow video tutorial on Lori’s blog.

Here are all the pieces cut and ready.

It is very easy to put these pieces together into a mini album even without a tutorial.

This is the accordion spine of the album. I remember earlier how long it took me to measure and score the cardstock while making one of these.. but not anymore!

This is how it looks when you attach the pages to the spine.

Once the skeleton is ready you can go ahead and start embellishing it.

On the inside front and back cover I made a pocket for the tags, journaling cards and photo mats:

That is it! My mini album is ready! All I have left is to fill it up with photos, sweet memories and maybe some more beautiful embellishments.
