NEW Cricut Artbooking Layout - Give Thanks!

I am SO IN LOVE with this new Cricut Cartridge and SO excited to offer it to you beginning August 1st! If you would like to take advantage of my pre-order offer, click here to get all the details.

This is the layout we will be making at my team meeting this weekend. It is found on page 72 of the Artbooking guide.

I cut out all of the elements on this page at 11" and the cartridge does the math for me and makes the image the exact size it needs to be to fit proportionately with the rest of the pieces!

On the right page, this overlay piece really frames and make the layout! You can leave it just as it is or fill in the leaves and trunk!

I chose to fill in the trunk with Kraft cardstock stamped with our wood grain back ground stamp - D1477 Universal Backgrounds.

Then I added leaves to the tree. I used the leaves from our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge on pg. 59 called in different sizes ranging from 2" to 3/4". I crumbled them and then inked them with chocolate and barn red ink.

The left page has a title and leaf/vine flourish above the photo mats and I added a date using the font on the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge at 1". 

On a side note - since this layout features 4" x 6" photos, it is PERFECT for our 4" x 6" flip flaps! I think it would be cool to use them on the left page with pictures of family and journaling of what each one is thankful for. Just be sure to raise your title up and drop your photo mats down a bit so the flip flaps won't cover the title.

How EASY is THAT???? You are going to LOVE how this cartridge will make creating beautiful layouts SO quick and easy! Be sure to pre-order your cartridge today or visit my website after August 1st to order your own!
