Scrapbook Layout with CTMH Zoe & new CTMH Artistry Cartridge

I have been waiting for the new CTMH Artistry Cricut cartridge for so long - I had to put off my order when it was released to Consultants in mid-July because a merchant I shopped at had their systems compromised.  

But it's here and even better than I expected!   I also ordered the new Zoe Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go and the co-ordinating  Zoe Complements.  The Workshop on the Go includes the Zoe Assortment, new Coral Shimmer Trim and an exclusive full-size stamp set.   

For my layout I followed a pattern from a Zoe Workshop that 
was created by Consultant Tina Lovell. 

 I changed a few things to co-ordinate with the photos that I already had printed
 but for the most part have stuck pretty close to her original layout.

I used my Cricut to cut out the Pennants and I used the Slice feature and the Font from the new Artistry Cartridge to create my title.  
I sponged the Sorbet cardstock layer of the pennant with Sorbet Ink, then I backed the White Daisy layer with Glacier cardstock after doodling around the edge and added a few Bitty Sparkles for embellishment.

Here's another cut from the new Artistry cartridge, a cute little journaling tag.  I used the 
font from the Artistry cartridge and a Pilot Precise V5 pen in my Cricut Explore so I could make my journaling match the cuts from my title.

The Cricut Explore does an amazing job - each word is approximately 1/4 inch tall.  The font doesn't include all the punctuation but I didn't mind since I was doing a layout about my kids.

I used the CTMH Hopscotch Alphabet Stamp Set to stamp the bottom title in Black Exclusive Ink.  I love how well it goes with my Artistry cartridge font.  I will definitely be using these two together on future projects.

I also cut the top banner and the camera from the Artistry cartridge - I added some of the Complements stickers to the banner and a strip of the new Coral Shimmer Trim behind it.

The circle on the right came out of the Camera cut, I just added the little Complements sticker on top of it and popped it up with some Foam Tape.

Love this little Poloroid camera from the Artistry Cartridge!  I backed the Sorbet cardstock with White Daisy and added a Bitty Sparkle to the Heart cut.
