Cross Canada Blog Hop - Artbooking in April

Welcome to our April Blog Hop featuring creations made with our latest Cricut Cartridge, Artbooking.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop.  I am also the first stop on your hop across Canada, we hop from East Coast to West Coast, so I hope you will hop along with us. There are 15 participating in this month's hop. If you came from Candra's Blog Paper Dragon Fleur then you are in the right place! 

This layout is super super cute and easy and with a change of colors will fit a boy or girls birthday.  All the cuts were found on page 87 of the Artbooking handbook. Just 5 simple cuts,and add your photos and BAM, layout complete.  You can choose to embellish it further or leave it plain. What is great about this cartridge is that once you set you dimensions to 11" all cuts will cut to coordinate for that page. How awesome is that, this cartridge takes all the guess work out of figuring the sizes.  My pattern paper is from the Balloon Ride paper pack, and all my colors were chosen from the colors in this paper package.

For this cute Easter card, I used a Photo mat found from the same page to add a border.  This just goes to show that the Artbooking cartridge can be used for everything from layouts, to embellishments, borders and tags.....I could keep going on....but I think you get the idea. So continue to hop along and get more inspiring ideas from the creations from our Creative Canadian Consultants.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nicky of Timeless Cottage.
