Quick and easy shape album

Today I have a quick and easy shape album for you.  This album was created using my Gypsy and the Cricut Cartridge Everyday Paperdolls.  I love the paperdoll cartridges because they have so many hidden cuts and are so very versitile.  I used the gypsy to weld the dog to the dog house creating the basic shape for the album.  Because the images on this cart are pretty simply I cut the dog house twice in two shades of pink and hand trimmed to create the layers.  On the dog house I used Close to My Heart liquid glass to add glitter on the lines that indicate shingles.  And a CTMH alphabet to add the name MILLIE to the dog bone.  For the dog I added a bit of marker to the edges and accent marks.  Then I used a bit more of the liquid glass and a clear glitter to add a bit of dimention to the dog.  A bling brad and some twine were used to add the dog bone to the door.  I also added some liquid blass to the shingles to add dimension.  The inside pages were all cut from white card stock in the shape of the album and ribbon was added to the binder rings to finish it off. 

Created for Miss Melina with Love!  I hope this album helps you save the special memories you created with Millie!  She may be in heaven now, but she will always be with you in your memories!  Love you sweetie!
