Artbooking in August Week 3



Wow - this month is flying by!  Welcome to the third week of the Artbooking in August Blog Hop!  The last two weeks over 30 consultants have dazzled us with their creativity!  If you have been following our blog hop, then you know the ladies were presented with a challenge to create!

Their challenge was to create 4 different projects using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.  Their mission was to design each of the following:

1. 2 page layout 
2. Card
3. Mini Book 
4. Home decor or 'giftable' item 

They were able to choose what to make and when to post it. AND if they wanted to add stamps to their designs, that was OK.  This week they will add another great design to the challenge and I am anxious to see what everyone has created!

Remember this is a circular blog hop and if you get lost or confused along the way, the list is posted on my blog here.

If you are hopping with us then you have arrived from Gina Brandsetter's blog here


Today my design is a Halloween mini-book using the following pages from the Cricut Artbooking handout.

I messed up a bit and cut the pages at 8" instead of the recommended 6" -oops! But I rather like the larger size of the mini book....

pg. 55

I created the title in the CCR by welding both the Halloween title from this page 
...using the shift function to get the title.  and the text from Artbooking....  do check out the dl I have included below...




I added some photos from my stash to create a mini book of memories...




Our costume for the JFD Halloween party - Hanz and Franz!    How easy was this costume?!



Many years of Halloween fun to remember the best of times..

all rolled up into one little mini- book!  If you would like the CCR file for a few of the cuts that I have included you can download them here...

Now it is time to hop onto Terry Ann Diack blog's here  where I am sure you will fine some absolutely awesome artwork!!

Now that I made it all the way through the hop, I can see how we think alike...but different. I am amazed that no two Halloween albums were exactly alike. Spot ON!!
