On the first page, I added our I heart Mackinac Island T-shirt dye cut, ahoy dye cut, and then I added the Mackinac Michigan dye cut (after I taped a piece of folded ribbon to the back)with a little dimensional (pop dot) tape

I also added a few heart brads, I just love the fold art style πŸ™‚

Lastly I adhered a piece of blue chevron ribbon to the bottom right, tucking the ends into the center of the folded frame.

On the second page of our mini Mackinac Island Scrapbook, I just added a few more of our dye cuts, pop dotting the “NO CARS” sign after adding my favorite red grosgrain ribbon with stitched edges on the bottom of this page.

Since this page forms of the center of our Mackinac Island masterpiece, I decided to add a few more details to create a focal point.  First I added some cute green gingham washi tape to the top two edges of the frame.  Next I added the trees, pop dotting the smaller one slightly overlapping the large pine tree.  Our Michigan map dye cut already has a heart on it but I decided to add a heart brad on top of it to add a little more texture.  Then I cut out the Mackinac Island dye cut with turtle detailing and then glued it to some black paper and then cut it out leaving about a 1/8″ mat.  Lastly I cut out the Mackinac Island memories dye cut and layered in on the black matted map.


Another simple page done by adding ribbon and tucking the edges under and then added our cute dye cuts, pop dotting the FUDGE stop sign πŸ™‚

For our final page, I added brads and ribbon like the first page to balance it out and then added more dye cuts and and ribbon.

    Awesome photo project/scrapbook. Would be fun deciding on which photos to use,putting it all together. Was thinking I’d take photos of my birthday last year at Highline Lake with our daughter and family. Was very special to me. Will be even more so this year as oldest grand daughter will be going away to college in August. Will miss her so much. Thank heavens for Skype. When I worked at local small town paper I’d go get girls and we’d spend many happy afternoons at lake all summer. Now that they’re older we don’t get to do that so will cherish any time we spend. Your scrapbook has given me great idea to make one with our photos to enjoy. Happy weekend. pinning

    I am trying to make your mini scrapbook. I can not figure out how to go from “Fold the corners into the first diagonal fold line and adhere down.” to “Fold in the middle of each side to create the square shown with corner pockets.” Could you please clarify? Thanks.

    We have this too. Admittedly, right now we don’t have too many toys because my daughter is only 11 months, but the system seems to be working pretty well for the time being.
