Artbooking in August Blog Hop!

blog badge 2 copy
Last Monday was the 1st week of our Artbooking creations…and it’s time for our SECOND round of Artbooking Projects!!!  We will continue to post projects EACH MONDAY in August- make sure to join us each Monday! J

If you have come from Mary Gunn’s Blog…you are on the right track!  

Our challenge this month was to create 4 different projects using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.  We will be creating one of each of the following…
1. 2 page layout
2. Card
3. Mini Book
4. Home décor or “giftable” item

We were able to choose which of these 4 items to create and choose which Monday to post it.  This is a circular hop, so if you get lost along the way CLICK HERE to see the complete list posted on Adeline’s (our fearless coordinators) blog. 

This week I wanted to share with you a 2 page layout.

How QUICK & EASY our Artbooking Cricut cartridge allows us to create a layout! 
I used the “snow” and “walking in the winter” keys to create this layout.  This cartridge is FABULOUS!!

 I set my cricut size at the 11” linked size and cut away! J Take a look at the snow banner…I LOVE the multiple wordings that are on this cartridge!  How EASY is that? J

One of my ultimate FAVORITE stamp sets…is the Universal Background.  I cut the snowflake overlay twice…one time with Champagne cardstock and one with Whisper.    By adding 3D foam tape to some of the snowflakes, it gives this layout some added dimension.

How do you like this CUTE snowman???   What FUN!!!  You can see the snowman image on this cricut page.key walking in the winter-artbooking 
I cut the snowman in Champagne cardstock, and cut the hat in Ruby.  I wanted him to have a 3d type scarf…so I pulled out some of the new Sparkle and Shine textiles to add a flowing scarf. J
