Artbooking Made Easy- Everyday Layouts

I LOVE these new "Artbooking Made Easy" videos!!

This video is a GREAT way to learn more about our FABULOUS Artbooking Cricut cartridge!!  

Monica shares with us how you can use the mini album pages and add them to your 12x12 pages by using that amazing "Real Dial Size" button on your Cricut machine!!!

So come on and learn these AMAZING tips as you create with your Artbooking Cartridge...and if you don't have this cartridge yet....Christmas is right around the corner! LOL!!!

After you watch this video, scroll down to take a look at the in depth details of the layouts that were created in the video!  
This excerpt comes from Jeanette Lynton's blog.. (see below) 

From Jeanette Lynton's blog...

You probably didn't expect the shapes on this page to come from a non-birthday themed key. The Travel mini album keys, found on pages 38 and 39 of the booklet, gave us the great arrow ribbon tails you see behind the journaling spot. Cut in both Crystal Blue and Honey, the shapes overlap nicely.

The balloon shapes were made by some creative stamping. These stamps aren’t balloons at all, but decorative circles that come from the Perfect Fit–Halloween stamp set (B1413) and Perfect Fit–Birthday stamp set (B1417). The tails that complete the circles to form the balloon shape are cuts from one of the Inspiration mini album keys on page 44. The artist who created this piece attached each tail with adhesive and wrapped them with colorful baker’s twine to give each ballon a string. She finished the cluster with another bow of baker’s twine.

On this “Smitten” layout, many pieces came from the Together layout keys on pages 60 and 61, meant for celebrating relationships. The keys are wonderful for layouts of a more romantic nature, but they are fitting on layouts celebrating so many other types of relationships. Here they highlight love for a pet; I can see them adorning a layout devoted to siblings, friendships, or hobbies. 

Notice the “together” letters on the left page. These are actually the negative space cut from the “together” title found on page 60 of the booklet. Bunched together in a fun fashion and popped with 3-D foam tape, they look wonderful!

One of my favorite shapes on this layout is the trendy rosette shape that comes from page 60 of the booklet. Cut at varying sizes using the real dial size control, they are wonderful additions to this layout, don’t you think?

Like Monica encouraged, think outside the theme! Your creativity can take over the most ordinary of days and turn out splendid new layouts. You are going to love coming up with your own eclectic creations with this cartridge.
