Senior photo mini album with Chomas Creations ajustable holder

Leave it to me to leave this to the last minute!  Just 2 days till my daugther's grad party and I'm still working on little projects (ok, so this one is kinda a big thing time wise!  I had this mini album sitting around just waiting to be done (2 pieces of acrylic and 4 pieces of chipboard, I had to decorate them).  I thought it would be cool to write on the arylic sheets of the album!  So I added the sheet with the blue protective cover on the bottom (that is why it looks blue in the picture) to my Cricut mat, then added some blue painters tape to keep it super secure, and added my Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder to the Cricut Expression 2.  Now being that I had this piece of acrylic in the machine that is higher then your standard cardstock, I wanted to adjust the height of my Bic Mark-It so that it didn't write on the surface of the acrylic.  So this time I added the popcycle stick on TOP of the acrylic sheet when choosing my height.  This kept it higher!

 I used a speed of 2 (didn't want my marker to smear!) and a pressure of 2 then drew my design with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder for the Cricut and a Bic Mark-It.

I used the Chomas Creations embossing kit to emboss the design onto a metal sheet.  I added the colored side of the metal sheet to the embossing mat, embossed the design, then sanded the raised image.

Here are some more pages in the album!  Wheeewh so glad that is done!

And here is the entire book put together!

Birthday card with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

I love how this turned out, looks so much like chalk on chalkboard!!  This is the Sakura moonlight gelly roll gel pens in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder.  The file is from the Studio store.  I used internal offset to fill in the pattern on this file.  I kept adjusting the internal offset until the whole thing was filled!  Worked great!  Because these pens are pretty juicy, I used a speed of 2 and a thickness of 6.
