Car Show Layout Using CTMH Urban

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links. 

Here's another masculine layout using the CTMH Urban paper packet from the current CTMH Annual Inspirations Idea Book.  

 I went with a very simple layout and only used a bit of Shimmer Trim for embellishment.  I choose to highlight a few pictures taken at a local car show that is held here every Spring.

I used Whisper cardstock as my base with patterned cardstock from the Urban paper packet with a little bit of Bronze Shimmer Trim as a border.  I sponged the edges of the Saffron photo mats with Desert Sand Ink.

I created my page title using a cut from the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge using Saffron and Slate cardstock.  I used a pen in my Cricut Explore to write the title with the Everyday Fonts - Big Day font in my Cricut Access subscription.  I was originally going to cut out the title and have black cardstock show through but the letters were tiny so I switched to the writing feature instead.

A new name and some new features were added to the Cricut Subscription last week.

Cricut Access™ subscribers will also be the first to access new images, projects and exclusive designs.

Thirteen exclusive new fonts were added with the introduction of Cricut Accesslast week, along with new images also exclusive to Cricut Access.  

I love the writing feature in Cricut Design Space and that I can use pens with my Cricut Explore
I can't wait to use some these new fonts with my pens to journal on my scrapbook pages.   

Great new images were also added to Cricut Access™ - I noticed right away that some of these will go perfectly with some pages that I am working on. 

Items included in the Cricut Access™ subscription are now marked with an icon to make them easy to find in Design Space.

Look for the green Access™ icon to find projects and images included in Cricut Access™.

Design Space Images - images included have the green icon to the left of the image. 

Make It Now Section: Cricut Access™ images are highlighted with green Accessicon.

  I love that I can now see what is included with the Cricut Access™ subscription.  I was able to quickly choose a font for this tag by looking for fonts that had the Access™ icon.

Cricut Access™ is available monthly for $9.99/month (cancel anytime) or for one annual payment of $95.88 (New lower price! Was $99.99 - works out to be just $7.99/month now!)
