CTMH Layouts with Free To Be Me & Cricut cartridges

Finally finished up my layouts with the Free To Be Me paper pack that CTMH offered for $5 last month with a $50 purchase.   I had lots of fun with this - the bright colours immediately made me think kids pages.   So I grabbed all the pictures I had from when the kids were in kindergarten and grade two along with the Reflections Scrapbook program book and this is what came up with.

This is the second page for my daughter's layout - the first page is in the previous post.  The layout shown below was one of the suggested layouts in the Reflections book. I love how there is a list of suggested layouts and I was able to flip through the book and look at all the suggestions and then choose one that had the right amount of pictures for that 2nd page.

The stamped image was from the May Stamp of the Month set. I embossed it in gold to match the gold dots on the vellum then played around with the placement.  In the end I went with the second page. 

Cut some titles out with my Artbooking cartridge. I used Cricut Craftroom to weld the individual letters together then cut out two of each colour and just used same for both layouts.  Then I played around with placement until I was satisfied. 

 And here are the finished pages.  I used the Artbooking cartridge for the Teamwork, the My First and the large tag on the 2nd page.  The book called for a 5x7 photo but I decided to use the tag with my 4x6 instead.  And the 2000 on my son's page came from the Artiste cartridge.  And I also used it for the grade 2 on my daughter's page.
