Balloon Ride- CTMH 3 ring Kraft album

Kraft album_Balloon Ride_Artbooking_page 5 close up DSC_1205We only have 10 more days until the Retiring Items at CTMH will be gone!!

Please check & make sure that you have the items you need!!  CLICK HERE to see the most recent Retiring list!!

Come join me today, as we showcase another paper pack that will be leaving us at the end of July…Balloon Ride

I will truly miss the Balloon Ride paper!  These BEAUTIFUL neutral tones coordinate with about ANY theme!!

I wanted to showcase this paper collection & decided to use our FABULOUS My Creations Kraft 3-Ring Album as well.  With a price point of only $5.95, this album can be used for SO MANY things!! 

I had SO MUCH FUN creating this album!! J  Make sure to stop back for my next couple of blog posts to see how quick & easy this album was to create!!

Here were some “rules” I set for myself before I started creating…
  • no stamping allowed
  • no inking of edges
  • I chose to only use the 8” size cut from my Cricut machine when cutting ALL shapes
  • used the Artbooking Cricut cartridge exclusively
Kraft album_Balloon Ride_Artbooking_cover DSC_1228That’s not hard, right?  J
For me the NO STAMPING part was the hardest!! 

I do have to confess J…you’ll notice in the next post, I DID stamp one time in this book…I stamped lines on my cut out journaling page…but that was the only stamping I used! LOL!!

Take a look at the 1st batch of pages…(make sure to come back to this blog to see the final set of pages!)
It was so fun to add bits of glitter paper behind the cuts outs from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge!

In creating this album, I started to use only the images from keys 1, 2, 3, & 4 of the Artbooking cartridge.  However, I realized if I kept my dial  size at 8”…it didn’t matter WHAT shape I used in this cartridge! J So I ended up using MANY shapes from the entire cartridge!!

The shape of this half page came from the zero key…

Page 2- very simple…plenty of room for a picture or journaling…

Page 3 & 4 - the wording is part of the zip strip from the top of the Balloon Ride paper pack! Kraft album_Balloon Ride_Artbooking_page 2 & 3 DSC_1228

It’s so fun to include a smaller tag in the middle of the album…it adds an extra touch!

Our Base & Bling charms can be used for SO MUCH more than jewelry!  While they do look adorable on our jewelry pieces, I have been using the rhinestone gems (used here) & all of the other charms on so many of my projects!!

The overlays on our Artbooking Cricut cartridge are PERFECT for mini albums!!

Page 5…….For my sparkly circles - I used SCRAPS of Glitter paper!!  The perfect way to use up those pieces! J

We’ll pause here for today…J

As you can see the pages were put together VERY SIMPLY…but it still turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL book!!! (Close To My Heart paper always makes things beautiful! J)
