CTMH Artfully Sent Scene Card - Scottie Dog

I finally had some time to play with my CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge today.  I decided to make the cute phone booth scene card. The Scottie dog is so cute.  The card was really easy to put together - just two cuts.  I changed the size to 5.5" relative size instead of the 7" shown in the handbook. 

I cut the main part of the card in red cardstock with a white liner. I put scraps of cardstock in yellow and black behind the cutouts. 

The Artfully Sent Cartridge is exclusive to CTMH - check it out on my website:

Baby Girl Scrapbook Page with CTMH Flip Flaps, Artbooking Cricut Cartridge

I recently finished a 12x12 layout of my daughter from when she was a baby.  Using Close To My Heart Flip Flaps I got the equivalent of 3 12x12 pages to fit one 12x12 page protector.  I will be working this page into my Picture My Life album that I have started of her First Year.

I started by choosing these layouts out of the CTMH Cricut Artbooking Cartridge Handbook.  They are shown as Holiday/Wintertime Layouts but are so versatile I was able to use cardstock that I had on hand already and change it to suit my daughter's pictures.  Sorry the photos are a little off colour - I really need to use my camera instead of my phone when in the craftroom.

Front of layout using two 6x12 Flip Flaps.  I cut the Wintertime layout in half. Love the pennant frames.  Cardstock and embellishments are from my stash.

Center layout is from the Artbooking Holiday layout.  I loved the bows and the CTMH Thistle cardstock picks up the purple color of my daughters ribbon.  Top and bottom are reverse side of 6x12 Flip Flaps with co-ordinating photo frame.

I added a 4x6 Flip Flap to bottom right of centre layout.  

Here it's opened to see the extra photos I had.  Flip Flaps are a great way to add more pictures to your layout. They are also good for adding journaling or memorabilia.  

I attached an extra bow with Liquid Glass to the front of my Flip Flap so it would blend in with the rest of the layout when closed.

The title and the baby clothes are from CTMH new Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.

CTMH Pathfinding Workshop on the Go

I've been doing a little bit at a time of my scrapbooking.  My tendinitis flared up again after a change in my physio exercises so I've cut back on my activities to give it a rest.

I recently was working on the Pathfinding layout. It has a layout with Cricut cuts and also an alternate if you don't have the Artbooking cartridge.

The Workshop on the Go Kit contains all the paper, embellishments and a full size stamp set plus an instruction booklet.   Items are also available for individual purchase - see links below each photo for individual items.  

Lots of paper left over after I cut what I needed.

Cute embellishments. CTMH Pathfinding Assortment

Little bit of bling.  CTMH Gold Bling Gems

All put together just need photos.  I attached the frame on the left page with CTMH Bonding Memories Glue - I let it dry first so it created a temporary bond. That way I can go back and add my photo under the frame and re-glue with a permanent bond.
