Hi everyone!  I have another fun project to share with you using the adorable Cute and Crafty collection.  This time, I used one of the cutting files from the collection (Craft Caddy) and created a mini album with the design. 

I started with the cutting file, which I got in Lori Whitlock's SVG shop here.  I sized the file to approximately 7" wide and created an offset of the base piece (the one with the scissors attached) to create my cover and base pages. 

I had to change up one part of my caddie after I accidentally messed up the craft knife on the design.  No worries, I just trimmed the craft knife off with scissors and used a cute roll of twine from the odds & ends in its place.  How cute is that tiny epoxy sprinkle of Doodlebug sprinkles ❤️ ?!

I used all 12x12 pattern papers to cover my base pages.  That washi tape paper above might be my favorite pattern in this collection.  Love the colors and how the tape looks transparent!

The Bits & Pieces are a new product released with this collection.  The flowers above, and the journaling card below, all came from the pack.  Cute right?!  There are flowers, tags, journaling spots, tabs, and lots of super cute pieces for your projects. 

I used a lot of shaped sprinkles throughout this album.  The mini hearts above are a favorite, and I also love the new "Cute As a Button" (below) and Cute & Crafty shapes.

I like how the This & That sheet always has cute word stickers.  They work perfectly for little tabs above my photos!  Once my pages were all complete, I used my We R Memory Keepers Cinch tool to punch binding holes and add binding wire.  

I LOVE shaped mini albums and hope that my project has inspired you to play with cutting files in different ways.  I use the Silhouette Cameo, but there are lots of machines out there that work with svg files (and LOTS of cute Doodlebug cutting files to inspire you).   Have a great one everybody ... and if you need any product links you are always welcome to visit me over at Artsy Albums!
