Welcome to the third week of Artbooking in August Blog Hop. You may have just come from the Clearly Stamping blog of Amy McVey.
Each week we are showing one of the following made with the newest Close To My Heart Cricut Artbooking cartridge in any order. Here's my order:
1. Card - (See it here)
2. Giftable items - (See them here and here.)
3. Scrapbook layout - today!
4. Mini-album - next week
Most of the elements in this layout, except for the branch, were cut using the <L> key using the 11" measurement. The smaller tree and the word "adventure" were cut using 10" and the title mat was cut at real dial size 2.5"
I oriented the Barn Red wood grain horizontally to complement the orientation of the logs in the cabin. I mounted it on backgrounds of retired Sonoma because the fine lines more nearly resembled wood grain with the cut overlays. Also, I had saved a lot of Dakota paper knowing that we were taking the grandkids to Wyoming this summer, which explains the reason for the lighter wood grain mats from Dakota. I backed the Olive mat with smaller pieces of woodgrain, Barn Red and Black cardstock and used the Keyboard Kraft Alphabet to add extra words. The stamped words "Good Times" and the starry arrow are both stamps that are included in the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge set.
I had previously shared the following two layouts using the Artbooking cartridge. You can find details for this first one here.
(The second one, using older paper that wasn't CTMH, was a Christmas heritage layout shown here. I had started it some time previously and left it unfinished when I couldn't decide how to embellish it. I was inspired by the Artbooking images that seemed to finish the layout naturally.)
Thank you for visiting. I hope you're getting some ideas for your own layouts and Artbooking projects. Now you're ready to visit Maureen O'Sullivan's blog Something to Scrap About!
