My friends book
This book is inspired by a project in the Club Scrap Comics Kit February 2011, it is called the Funny Folio Foldout Project. If you would just like the instructions and measurements, they are available in the monthly newsletter that is included in all of the kits, it is called the Scrap Rap.
I made a few changes to the original project by using different papers, embellishments and using my Bind it All to make the booklet on the right side. Also I made an elastic closure using brads and my Crop a Dile to punch the holes through the book board.
Club Scrap has some great video tutorials on book making in general and they are all available at http://www.clubscrapcommunity.com/main-inspiration/cinema.
Here is the video that shows how to make the basic book with bookboard and paper wrapping techniques:

I started with an assortment of Club Scrap papers from POPs packs, and chose from my blacks, grays, whites, cream, and few taupe shades. The larger size is 4x6 and I used a corner rounder on the bottom corners. The smaller size is 3x5.
Club Scrap hybrid ink, ruby and Club Scrap India Ink in black, Club Scrap Pigment Ink in white. Distress Ink in weathered wood and spiced marmalade, and Adirondak ink in slate. I used foam dots between most of the layers. The brayer is pictured because I used it to press the paper onto the Cricut mat for better adhesion. I used the tonic red handled scissors to cut the foam dots because they are teflon coated to prevent sticking :) The Cricut spatula is very helpful for getting cuts off of the mat, but not necessary. I also used the Cricut Imagin JT and Country Carnival cartridges in my Imagine and E2. Also, not pictured is the twill ribbon in natural that I strung the whole thing up on~
