Welcome to our 4th and last week of Artbooking in August Blog Hop! There are over 30 ladies participating, so there's lots of Artbooking to enjoy! You may have just come from Amy McVey's blog, Clearly Stamping. Each of us used the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge only sold by Close To My Heart consultants. We each chose which order we would make each type of project. Here's the order I used and links to find them if you haven't visited before.
2. Giftable Items #1 and #2 - Designed Décor Frames
3. Scrapbook 2-page layout
4. Mini-album today -
This album is a compact way for my grandkids to be able to view or take to school to share their vacation. I'm not showing all of the pages, but you'll get the idea of the possibilities. I will briefly point out a few features.
The cover page has one of the overlays. I used a thorough application of liquid adhesive to every little detail so it would be durable for kids to handle. The stamped image was colored with Alcohol Ink Markers - light Sky and light Whisper.
Inside cover: I included pockets on many of the pages. Here you can see three different pages, which all have pockets.
Accordian album inside the front cover pocket. It can hold eight photos that are almost 3" x 4."
I used one of the honeycomb overlay shapes as a stencil and sponged black ink over it. The "HUGS" mat is also one of the mats included in the cartridge, along with the arrow icon which was matted with white.
The words on these pages were all cut with the cartridge, but I did mat some with other cardstock for contrast.
This next page is called a mat, but it folds up from the bottom to make a pocket.
There are more pages, but I think you have seen the possibilities of mixing Photo Mats, page shapes, Icons, and Borders to fit your own style or needs. (I can't seem to be able to maintain a connection most of today, so I may add the other details Monday or Tuesday if the connection problems improve. If you want more details, I'll include those on the bottom of this post after your link to the next.)
I hope you enjoyed the Artbooking Ideas. Now you are ready to join Jen Patrick at RoxyBonds
