Are you ready to get creative??  Let talented CTMH consultants inspire you with their creativity this month. Each Monday in August, these ladies will be posting artwork to their blogs and you do not want to miss it!! (subscribe via email to ensure you don't miss the action).


We have been challenged to create 4 different projects using the new CTMH Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.  ( yes - we all have retired paper packs in our 'stuff' and this cartridge is perfect for using up paper!!)  Stop back each Monday in August to see what I have created. Each week you will see one of the follow designed items:
1. 2 page layout 
2. Card
3. Mini Book
4. Home decor or giftable item 

If you came from Marie's blog you are on the right track. 

Are you ready for my unveil?? Here you have it my fun and fabulous creation focusing on scrapbook pages that can be created using ARTBOOKING!!.

 This layout is special. My friend Jo-Jo and I have so much fun when we are together. We were at a scrapbook crop in 2011 and my friends always laugh at me for having the phone either to my ear or using my thumbs to text. I used Chantilly paper(retired). I used pg 59 for the overlay, pg 76 for the photo mats, pg 79 for the arrow and "buddies"sentiment. I used the coordinating stamp set "Take Note Cricut Bundle" to stamp the arrow with ink. I cut the flower from page 80 and outline it with glitter. The Pembelry WOTG stamp set came in handy as I put a border around the layout using Juniper ink. I love how it came out. Simple piecing of different cuts using Artbooking. 

This is a pic of my boyfriend and I. I wasn't sure I was going to use it since our heads are cut off but I like how I look in the pic so I went for it. This layout was created only using CTMH card stock. I used pg 60 for all of the cuts..the overlay, 5x7 mat and the "Together" title. I placed sparkles at the tip of each letter. To make the hearts pop I put smoothie card stock behind them and washi tape on opposite corners of the picture. 

To continue on this hop please visit Traci's blog to see her wonderful creation! Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!

    1. Thank you. I like patterned paper but the cuts work well with card stock holding its own.
