ArtBooking In August Blog Hop #1

Art Booking Blog Hop header

Welcome to Art Booking in August!! you should have made it here from Jane’s lovely blog (Jane’s Blog). This HUGE hop is happening every Monday in this month. There are about 40 Close To My Hearts ladies on this amazing Art Booking journey ready to inspire you with their creativity this month. To make it easier for you to follow along this month, I’d be honored if you followed my blog. It’s easy by using BlogLovin’ or entering your email address in my right side bar.

So, here’s the scoop! We’ve been challenged to create 4 different projects using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack, new or retired. This month’s line up is:

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

Here’s my two page layout! I used my NEW Baby Cakes Workshop Kit to create my two page spread. Sadly, my Art Booking cart didn’t make it in time for me to add my “Art” work, so I substituted my Artiste Cartridge instead (big cup cake, Birthday Girl, plaque & pennants). I also used everything in the kit to add the small, and large, details throughout the layout. You’ll also see some shipping tags peeking out from behind pictures and the awesome patterned papers!! Those beauties can be found in my Etsy Shop, along with lots of other scrappin’ goodies that compliment our Close To My Heart products!
