**Sorry to those expecting instructions or a tutorial, I meant to say details of what was used and the Cricut details. For the Journal - The tab pages were cut at 5 1/2 inches and the inner tabs at 5 1/4", the ruled pages are 5" high x 6 ". Mini books are cut at 4" square with inner pages at 3 3/4"

Bind-it All was centred as for most I only use 6 pieces of a comb I am not keen on full length but it depends on what I am making. If you have any questions please ask and I will help f I can but they are pretty straightforward to make :-) xx

Mini Books in boxes
I made these Acetate covered mini books for my nieces who are off on holiday to write their journal notes in so that when they return and we scrapbook they have the times dates etc ready to add to their pages. Well thats the general idea :-)

I used the Papermania selection which came out for Valentines Day which has papers and matching printed acetates, not easy to photograph though. Pink Bind-it All wires. gems etc. I cut the covers and wrap around straps and tabs on the Cricut, from the Fabulous Finds Cart, use multicut 4 times as that goes through it ok with the normal blade housing. Now if I could only get my Cropodile to work I could have used eyelets to fix them instead of brads which show through but I still haven't mastered the blasted thing :-(

I made some little boxes for them with K and Co Brenda Walton Speciality Pad "Sweet Talk" embossed papers and paper string and a charm to finish them off.

Journal - Bloom and Grow Papers My Minds EyeI needed another journal for putting ideas down so I made this one as I love these new papers and the fact that they are embossed and some are double sided is very useful.

Cut on the Cricut, from the Fabulous Finds Cart tabed pages, and covers and ruled index cards cut down for the pages. I used a thick document acetate which is frosted on one side as its thicker than regular for a better cover. I stamped the acetate with Stazon and coloured using Sakura Glitter Pens, due to the texture on the acetate it looks a little strange at first but its o'k. These colours were a perfect match for the papers too just allow a little extra time for it to dry.

Just need to add some wording and the closure and its done.

used the leftover bits of acetate and card to make this little shopping list. Rabbit is by Joanna Sheen Fairy Rabbit stamped with Violet Stazon
