10X10 Travel Mini Part 10 – Artbooking Cricut Collection

20131105-213513.jpg

Hello Crafty Friends,

It’s been a busy place around here, but I do have this layout to share with you all and a quick video I made while assembling it.

I love creating little pockets on these little pages for travel mini albums as you need places to stick the small memorabilia that you pick up on your journey. I’ve had these little paper bags for a long time and was thrilled to get to use one and to get to do some stampin too!

The best part about making your own album is that you get to choose the size and how many pages you want or need. Artbooking has made it super easy for one and all to not only scrapbook or Artbooking, but to make your very own personalized mini albums with some really trendy and just amazing elements. I love the little approved postage cut that I add to this page. There are at least two of these on this cartridge.

Now who doesn’t love these doily style photo mats! This was cut at 11″ and she can add at 3.5″ square photo or a 4″ square photo depending on how much of the doily she wants to see under the picture. I’ve mounted this photo mat with some dimensional adhesive.

Artbooking Made Easy: Think Outside The Box

Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy Monday! While I am at the office today, I wanted to share another informative and inspiring video from Close To My Heart featuring the Artbooking Cricut Collection.

I hope the video inspired you to look through this great handbook and consider the possibilities for uses of the outstanding overlays, titles, icons, much much more for your future layouts.

As mentioned in this video using the real dial size key you can size your images to fit the size layout that you are working on. I suggest you use the Cricut Craft Room that is FREE or if you have a Gypsy use that to preview what the image will looking on your layout using the layers in both of these applications. This saves you time and money!

Below is a layout using the zebra print overlay that I made several months ago. I used elements from two different themes or suggested uses to create my own unique layout featuring my sweet little grand daughter on her 2nd birthday.

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am sharing Part 9 of the Travel Mini Album from the Artbooking Cricut Collection that is available from Close To My Heart. You can get more details on my website HERE.
Today we are creating a layout using one of the tag pages in this travel mini album that I cut at 10″.

I’ve chosen two elements from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge. I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy. You can do this in the Cricut Craft Room as well. It’s very easy to do.

More details are in this short video on my You Tube channel. Click HERE!

10×10 Travel Mini – Artbooking Cricut Collection Part 8

Hello Crafty Friends,

I finally made back up to my Stampin N Scrapin Studio this weekend! I’m still congested, but it’s getting better each day.

20131021-060118.jpg

Today’s layout is a fast and easy one using two banners from the Artbooking Cricut Collection from Close To My Heart. I was looking for the old world feel for this layout and saw the iron gate and owl on the above page of the Artbooking manual.

20131021-060535.jpg

I added some bling to the gate using the
Black and gray sparkles assortment from Close To My Heart.

20131021-060658.jpg

I used a small piece of glitter paper behind the owls eyes to make it look like an owl in the evening. He is popped up using dimensional tape.

20131021-061053.jpg

I added two simple photo mats for a 4X6 photo and a 4×4 photo to complete this layout.
