Hello everyone! Enza here with my first project as part of the Creative Team. I’m thrilled and honored to be sharing this new adventure with such talented and inspiring ladies! When I first saw the Crafty Fingers collection, I fell in love with the colors and the designs. I knew I wanted to document my kids’ crafts, so I decided to make a mini book.

One thing you should know is that I use Photoshop only to edit my photos. Everything else, that is resizing, cropping, editing, is done in the Silhouette Cameo software. For some reason, I find it easier to use.
Here are my steps:
  • After opening the program, I set the registration marks for a 8.5″x11″ print size.

  • Then, I draw my own shapes based on the size of the project I’m working on. In this case, the mini book measures 5″x5″, but I also wanted to incorporate some 3″x4″ cards.

  • I import the cards or papers into the shapes.

  • Then use the print and cut feature to have my Cameo do all the work 😉

  • Same thing with the elements. In this case, I imported them onto the page first, then drew an outline that had the same measurements of the original shape.

  • The important step to remember here is to make sure only the outline of the elements you want to cut is selected before you send the paper through the cutting machine

Here is my finished mini book with detailed photographs.

I like to add different textures and elements to my pages. Thread, cork elements, wood veneers and stamps do the trick for me.

I also like to make little clusters of elements here and there.

Some of the papers and brushes come from the collaboration between Sahin Designs and Anita Designs.

Below you can see how I created a cluster by overlapping a few elements. And, again, to give some texture to the page, I added half of a doily on the side.
