Explosion Albums with Matching Cards

I love making explosion albums!  I just made 3 for a friend of mine using a retired paper pack from Close to My Heart called Animal Crackers. I also made 3 matching cards to go with the albums.








I used two Cricut cartridges to make the album and cards:  the amazing Art Philosophy cartridge from CTMH and Create-A-Critter.  LOVE those carts!!

Here are the cuts that I made using Art Philosophy:

p. 33, B3, < Square2 > at 2", 2 1/4"
p. 43, C3, < Square3 > at 3 3/4", 4", 5"
p. 43, C3, layer, < Square3 > at 5"
p. 43, C3, card, < Square3 > at 4 1/4"
p. 45, C5, < Rctngle6 > at 1"
p. 46, C6, < Shape3 > at 1 1/2"


Here are the cuts I made using Create-A-Critter:

Alligator: p. 45, C2, Shadow/Layer 1/Layer 2/Layer 3, < Gator > at 1"
Monkey:  p. 46, C3, Shadow/Layer 1/Layer 2/Layer 3, < Monkey > at 2"
Hippo:  p. 44, C1, Shadow/Layer 1/Layer 2/Layer 3, < Hippo > at 2"
Elephant:  p. 55, D2, Shadow/Layer 1/Layer 2/Layer 3, < Elephant > at 2"
Lion:  p. 57, D4, Shadow/Layer 1/Layer 2/Layer 3, < Lion > at 2 1/2"
Giraffe:  p. 48, C5, Shadow/Layer 1/Layer 2/Layer 3, < Giraffe > at 3"

As I type up this post I realize that I have inadvertently given you a "sneak peak" at a new stamp set that is coming out on February 1, 2012.  It's called New Arrival.  It is so stinkin' cute!

Thanks for looking!
