Artbooking Blog Hop #3

Hello There Bloggers!  If you have hopped over from Deb's Blog then you're on the right path.

  The book I have created for this weeks hop was made with the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, CTMH 3 ring binder, flip flaps and many CTMH embellishments.  The paper is the latest addition to the Teresa Collins collection.  I planned on signing up for the class she will be hosting at Scrapfest in Minneapolis, using this paper pack, but I was too slow.  I was thrilled to find the paper pack this past week at our local county fair and couldn't wait to create an album of my own with it.  I hope that it is Ok that I am using it.  I plan to use it to document this years Christmas memories and love the 3 ring binder so I can add all of the Christmas cards that we receive this year.
This is the front cover.
This is the first page using the Christmas page from the Artbooking Cartridge.

The next two pages I used flip flaps to make a mini album for family photos.

More pages using the Artbooking Cartridge.  The little book on the left opens to reveal places for photos.  The envelope holds this years request to Santa.

This is the backside of the envelope and is another envelope that hide a journal card.

More flip flaps for photos.

I love how this book turned out and was thrilled to be able to use my CTMH supplies along with a paper pack that I love and create something that will truly become a wonderful documentation of a time in our life.  I love, love love the versatility of this cartridge.  I'm not a scrapbooker but this cartridge makes it so super duper easy peasy that it can turn anyone into a creative genius.  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation. 

Now you can hop on over to Polly's Blog and check out where her creative journey has taken her this week..

  4. This is wonderful. did you cut the pages at the recommended sizes in the artbooking cartridge.

    1. Karen,
      Yes, I did cut the pages as they were recommended. One of the pages wasn't a 8 inch recommendation but I set the size at 8 inches and the holes didn't match up exactly but close enough that I was able to repunch them with a regular hole punch and it worked out fine,
