Artbooking in August - Close Up Day 4

These 2 pages and insert were cut from Kraft Cardstock using the A1 Photo Mat/Shift,  A2 Photo Mat, and A2 Photo Mat keys using RELATIVE DIAL SIZE set at 8".   This allowed the insert to be exactly half the regular size yet the holes match the larger pages. 

I think these are my favorite pages of this mini album.  I cut the photo mat on this page using the C8 Key at 11" using RELATIVE DIAL SIZE.  This gave me a 6 X 4" photo mat.  I lined the back with White Daisy cardstock.  When I glued the lagoon to the White Daisy, I didn't glue any of the starsor the top of the Lagoon so that my photo could slip in behind it.  The Stars bursting out from the right are also cut at the same size using the C8 Border/Shift key.I added the insert stars that were cut when the photo mat was cut.

 This photo mat was also cut from the C8 key at the same size.  This gave me a 4 X 4" photo mat. Again, I didn't glue down any of the stars or the top so a photo can be slipped in behind it.  The ribbon that is woven through the holes was Color Ready Seam Binding colored using Lagoon on a sponge dauber and rubbed across the ribbon until I got the intensity I liked.  If you look carefully, you can see a smudge on the photo mat of the other page because I couldn't wait until it was absolutely dry!  I'm not concerned though because my photos will cover it.
 This side of the insert page has a piece of what appers to be notebook paper. In reality, it is White Daisy cardstock cut from the A5 Overlay key using REAL DIAL SIZE.  It perfectly matches the stamp that is included in the Artbooking Cricut Bundle.  I stamped the lines using Lagoon cardstock.  The Flag was cut from White Daisy Cardstock and stamped with lagoon ink  I added Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape and one of the stars that were cut out of the Stars banner.

The banner at the top of this page was cut from the C8 Banner key at 11" using RELATIVE DIAL SIZE. All of the photo mats were cut using the A4 Banner and Banner/Shift key using RELATIVE DIAL SIZE at 8".  The Lagoon star added to the photo mat was attached using 3-D Foam Tape.
