Artbooking with CTMH

I just love the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge!  There are so many different things you can make...cards, minibooks, layouts, and so much more.  I wanted to share a mini book I made for my great-grandson.  He was born in June.  When I cut the mini book out, I covered the holes that were on the side.  I know little fingers will be checking out the book quite often, so I am putting each pages into it's own page protector.  I will add ribbon to the page protector holes, creating the book.

  I started with a simple cover page.

This  page had the scalloped half circle on the side.  When putting it into a page protector, I have it upside down, with a slit at the bottom side, to allow for the half circle.

 For the next couple of pages, I used the overlay for the whole page.  On the opposite page I added a shaped photo holder.  This page also had the word BABY attached to the side page.  The Artbooking Cartridge also had the word "It's a BOY"

 Here I cut a scalloped page and a plain page from the Artbooking cartridge.  Then I added some shapes and rub-on to the page.  The little giraffe on the bottom of the page was part of the baby mini book.

 I have two pages, again, with one of the having scallops around the edges.  They are simple, but you can decorate them as you want.

 A tag was cut from the Artbooking Cartridge and I added some rub-ons and other embellishments.  The saying, Little One, was also a part of the mini book.

Two more pages, one with the scalloped half circle.  I labeled it with some vellum, and it says "Memories."  

Another scalloped page and a plain page.  It also had a small overlay, which fits so nicely on the page.  

 The last couple of pages are here.  Again I used another partial overlay, along with some diecuts...the diaper pins.    

This album has been a labor of love.  I hope my granddaughter enjoys it.    I would love to  hear your comments on it.  Thanks so much.
