Artbooking Layout

October's My Cricut Craft Room's Blog Hop

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's October's Blog Hop 

Collectively the design team and guest designers have made some amazing and special projects to share with you... over 60 projects are on this hop, but it is in less than 20 stops. .  

I have made this great project to share with you today. 
I just love the new Artbooking Cartridge!  There are so many things you can do with it.  It is ideal if you are going to create a layout.  All you do is find the layout you are interested in making, follow the directions for the size to make your layout, and put ONE button to cut it all out!

Here is what I created.


On this side, I cut the overlay at 11", the 5x7 picture photo mat and the title with its shadow at 11"
When cutting the packages diecut, I wanted it to be larger, so I switched to the Real Dial size and cut them out at 6"
I then assembled them  I mounted the packages on white paper, mounted the overlay on the base cardstock of pink Bazzill, put the shadow under the title and  I glued them all down.  After that I glued a white sheet under the 5x7 photo mat


On this side of the layout, I cut the small overlay at 11", a 6"x12" strip of paper, the photo mat trios at ll", 2 small photo mats with a cupcake corner, and the border at 11".  I put some white cardstock in the photo openings so you could see where the photos go.  Then I glued the small overlay on the left and the glued the strip of cardstock on the left side.  Next I glued the 2 small photo mats on the overlay, the tri-photo holder on the cardstock, and the border.





I love how these layout come together.  Just look at those photo mats.  I really like how they are related to the theme.
