Did you know that you can personalize your albums? Yes Spines and covers. All it takes is Cricut Design Space, some Iron on and your Cricut Easy Press and a little imagination.
If you are a scrapbooker like me, then you have lots of completed albums. Or you will if you are just starting out. Knowing what is in each album can be daunting, if they are not labeled.
How do you do it?
On the album spine above, I wanted to easily be able to find my Disney albums, and for which year. Using Design Space I imported the D and Castle image (purchased from Etsy) and sized it to fit my album spine. Next using the Waltograph Font (free on www.dafont.com) I put the year of our trips.
Once your Design is ready to cut, make sure you you put your iron on shiny side down on your mat, and remember to mirror your image. I used Cricut Brand Glitter Iron On for this album spine .
Once your design is cut, and you have weeded your iron on, the next step is to put it on your spine. I used my Cricut Easy Press 2 6×7 at 300 degrees for 30 seconds. I had my spine on my Easy Press mat while I pressed. This spine was a book cloth material. If you are using vinyl, you will want to start out with a lower temperature and adjust up if you need to.
Albums Spines are small so this would be a perfect project for the new Mini Easy Press.
Labeling your album spines is quick and easy. For my annual albums, I have done just dates. For special trip albums, like our trip to Yellowstone I have labeled it with the trip name.
Organizing your memories is important to you. Take one last step to Personalize your Albums, and make sure you can always locate that special memory quickly.
