Super Sassy and Sweet Preserves Mini Album

Hi Everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations.  I hope all of you like minis! No not mini skirts, but mini albums. I know I have done two in a row, but I can't help myself!  Thanks again Shelia for having me over to play today!
This one is done with Preserves Cricut Cartridge. I simply love this cartridge. The layers are super easy and this entire album is made from that cartridge.The album was cut from ColorBlok chipboard.  The settings I used was as follows:
Speed: Gypsy is the boss!
Depth: 6
Pressure: High
Multicut: 2
The Apple was cut at 3.43 inches. The details really pull through with the help of some smart embellishing. The seeds of the Apple are done with Viva Decor Pearl Pen in black. I love the 3D shiny effect! The edges have all been inked using ColorBox in Chestnut Roan with Fantastix inking tools. If you have not seen this video yet, YOU MUST!

The Pear was cut at 3.66 inches. The shiny seeds were done with Glossy Accents.
The Strawberry is my favorite! This was cut at 3.70 inches. At first I was annoyed with the dashes that the strawberry cut into the paper. I was going to Hide Selected Contour to remove the dashes, but then I realized I could use these to my advantage. I took the Viva Decor Black Pearl Pen and followed all the dashes to create this dimension. For the button I took embroidery floss and tied a knot through the holes. I then hot glued the button to the flower.
The final page is the Pineapple. It was cut at 3.76 inches. I used Glossy Accents for the shiny center and Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Pen for the glittery green paper. I love this pen for times when I want bling without glitter- plus it has no drying time!
The file is a free download. The first 4 pages are for the book with the welded fruit. Pages 5-8 are the layers of the fruit. Everything was sized with Real Dial off. You will have to "flip" the image to get the back side of the book and fruit.
Here is the front page prior to the "flip":
Here is the page after the "flip"

I hope you enjoy the free download!
Here is the video describing the file and book and giving assembly details! As always I love comments and followers!
