Hybrid Journal Card Mini Album

The best laid plans.....  I had this blog post all written up and ready to go back in September. Then I forgot to set it to publish!  D'oh!  So sorry!!  Hopefully you already saw it over at the Etc by Danyale blog!  If not - you can read it now!

This is such a cute and quick project. Using Journal Cards from the On the Street We Live digital kit by Etc by Danyale, I was able to put together this mini album about our home and neighborhood in no time!

On the Street We Live Journal Cards

Aren't they adorable?  So here's how I did this. I have a Silhouette Cameo. I used a mini album file from the Silhouette store.  But you could easily make this by just printing the journal cards and cutting them to make the pages of the album.  This album is 4x6". 

I brought the journal cards that I wanted to use into the Silhouette Studio software. I laid them out. I also did some pages using papers from the digital kit.  I set the Registration marks on and printed them 2 at a time to 8.5x11" presentation paper.

I then ran them through my Silhouette Cameo to cut them. Then I inked all the pages. I love the depth that inking can give to a project.  

I laid out the photos that I wanted to use in Photoshop. You could do this in Silhouette Studio. I printed them and cut them out and inked the edges as well.

Then I assembled the album.  I adhered the pages back-to-back. Here's how it turned out:

Here is a closer look at some individual pages:

Happy creating!
