Hi I’m Monica from Close To My Heart. On this episode of Artbooking Made Easy I’ll show you how to make works of art using the celebration themed keys of the Cricut Artbooking cartridge. These keys are chalk full of unique shapes that can be mixed and matched for a variety of looks, you can use them over and over and your projects will still look fresh and new. Let’s get our party started by looking at a few samples. This layout was made in the honor of a birthday, if you take a look at page 86 of the Artbooking cartridge booklet you will find the key that makes this happy sentiment and all the other shapes on this layout, see the way this title is repeated on the page? This is such a simple yet eye catching way to make any title, use the same word over and over in rows like so. This happy shape was cut using real dial size at 1 1/4 inches this is what it looks like when cut proportionately to the 11 inch overlay or the full 12 by 12 layout. This number border is also cut using real dial size but here’s what it looks like when cut at the linked size of 11 inches. See how small it is? This border is obviously used for birthday layout here but wouldn’t it be so fitting for a preschool layout? My son Jonah just started school and I can just picture him on a layout made with this border and the coordinated photo frames. A photo frame is actually what is used here to highlight the number three. You see the same photo frame on the left page of the layout at a bigger size and attached at a different orientation. The smaller one is cut at 3 inches real dial size, the larger at 5 inches real dial size. When the frame is cut at the linked size of 11 inches it looks like this. I love the cake and ice cream sentiment featured here on the right page cut at 1 ¼ inches real dial size from silver glitter paper, it really adds a glitzy pop to the page. Once again this is how it looks cut proportionate to the 11 inch overlay. There are a million things you can do with the Artbooking cartridge to make your celebration layouts even more festive. Look at all these fun ideas, you’ll see these layouts again and more detail featured on Jeanette Lynton’s blog where you can get even more great inspiration.
