For my project, I made a fun 2x2 Mini Album using several products from this month's Pink and Main release, along with the Xyron Create a Sticker Max, 1.5in. Sticker Maker and the Wedge Shaped Permanent Glue stick.



I started the mini album by using a Lori Whitlock svg, a 2x2 accordion mini album, that I cut with the Cricut Explore Air 2 out of the Beach Babe 6x6 paper pad and a few other coordinating card stocks. Then I ran those pieces to adhere them through the Create a Sticker Max and built my album, the few pieces that only needed a little bit of adhesive, I used the Wedge shaped glue stick and built the album.


Next, I went on to decorate the cover. I stamped, colored and die cut the images from the Sending Waves stamp set and the Sending Waves Dies. I stamped and die cut the sentiment in white and used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die (Smallest One).


The pages all together in the accordion album. 
The pages are simply decorated to leave plenty of room for journaling, pictures, stickers, etc. I used the Stitched Rounded Square Die to create some journaling spots from some lined project life cards. The album has about 5 of these spots.



I also used The Scoop stamp set and The Scoop Coordinating Dies. I also used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die for the sentiment from the set. How cute are these images?!? The Create a Sticker Max was perfect to add all these images to the album.







For the back of the album, I added a Stitched Rounded Rectangle Die in white to add the name and date.

Front and back covers.
This little album came out so cute and I think it will be perfect for our kids to record their summer memories in!
