"Happiness" Mini Album using Xyron Laminate Cartridge

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a mini album that I created with the Xyron Laminate cartridge. The Xyron Design Team was tasked with creating a project with the Lamanite cartridge.  I chose to create this fun little "Happiness" Mini Album. I loved then end result. I love working with the laminate cartridge on projects, because it really helps preserve projects that may be handled on a regular basis.  Take a peek at my tutorial below.

DCWV: Minty Lace Stack, Ultimate Tag Stack
1 1/4 Circle Punch
Wide Eyelets
Wooden Frame
Ball and Chain
Charms (Blue Moon Beads)
Mini Clips
Sanding Bar
3D Tape

 Step 1: Cut tag elements from Ultimate Tag Stack.

Step 2: Run tags through Creative Station Lite and adhere to the back of patterned paper from coordinating Minty Lace stack.

Step 3: Repeat step 2 for all tags that will be included in the mini album. Each tag creates a page.

Step 4: Change adhesive cartridge to laminate cartridge.

Step 5: Sand all pages and elements with sanding bar.

Step 6: Run all tag pages and elements through the Creative Station Lite to apply laminate. Trim each page with scissors or trimmer.
Step 7: Punch out elements to include in album. Run them through the New Creative Station Lite to apply laminate and trim them.

Step 8: Using Cropadile, punch holes in wooden frame, tags, and elements.  Add wide eyelets to the wooden frame and 1st page of album. Note: I punched holes in 3 different areas of the frame for binding purposes and to add additional embellishment opportunities.

Step 9: Bind album together with ribbon. Use wooden frame as the base.

 Step 10: Add photos, clips, sentiments and elements to the album.

Step 11: Add hemp to the binding and ball and chain to one of the eyelets in the wooden frame.  Add charms and continue adding elements as desired.

The following are some more pics of the album. You really could go wild customizing one of these. :)
