Red, White, and Blue- I Salute You!

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations. I know 4th of July has come and gone, but we can still celebrate our patriotism! Plus, if you are anything like me, it takes me forever to getting around to printing those pictures from our holiday fun.  This entire mini was made using the seasonal Independence Day cartridge. I have a video and a photo tutorial for you to see how awesome this album turned out.  Thanks Sassy for having me over to play.

The album base is actually the flag rectangle reshaped to be stretched for the album.  I then welded the images to the end of the album.

I cut the album form chipboard and then re-cut the front and back with cardstock.
I then cut the layered image again and ran it through the Xyron upside down. 
Then I added a nice layer of glitter.
 I did this for all the images on the end of the album.
I then sprayed them with an even coat of hairspray to seal the glitter.
While the hairspray dried, I assembled the album pages.
 I pasted the front and back with each with Yes Paste.
Now the front cardstock is glued to the chipboard.
And then I pasted the back to the chipboard.  I repeated this for all 4 pages.
I then added all the glittered pieces to the album.
 I then bound the album with my Cinch and tied A LOT of ribbon on the wire to make it look full.
So here are the sizes for each layer.
Freedom is cut at 1.59 inches.
 1776 is cut at 2.25 inches.
4th of July is cut at 3.98 inches.
The Flag is cut at 2.41 inches.
