Artbooking in August #4

Welcome to Week #4 of Artbooking in August! Are you ready to get creative? Let 35 Close To My Heart Consultants inspire you. This is a circular blog hop, so if you get lost along the way, please visit Adeline Brill's blog here, and you're sure to get back on track!

If you arrived here from Michelle's blog, you're on the right path.

Sadly, this is the last week of the blog hop. Can you believe September (and SCHOOL) is just around the corner? Well, today, I want to share a mini album I created using many cuts from our fabulous Cricut cartridges. I made this sweet baby album for my cousins. They are expecting their first child together, and of course, you can guess from the pink what they will be having.

The base pages were cut using the Artbooking cartridge at 8", using Real Dial Size and the photo mat 1, shift image found on Page 59. These pages were cut to fit into our new Kraft 3-ring binder Album.
