Artbooking Made Easy: Fall Layouts

Today's video, Artbooking Made Easy (S01E07): Fall into Artbooking, is the seventh in the video series Artbooking Made Easy. Please stop back each week until April 2014 to view the next video in the series. Each has tips and tricks for using the Artbooking collection.

The CTMH Corp. description of this week's video Artbooking Made Easy (S01E07): Fall into Artbooking is "Fall for the autumn-themed projects you see in this video, all made with the Cricut® Artbooking cartridge from Close To My Heart!"

A few points I want to be certain that you do not miss while watching the video:
  • the harvest layout keys are found on pages 72 and 73
  • the tree overlay is cut at 11" which is proportional to a 12" layout
  • the smaller leaf details from the tree overlay key, just cut the tree and use the negative space; if you keep it proportionate (do not use real dial size, that is real dial size is set to off), the leaves will fit in the negative space on the overlay
  • do not use real dial size to cut the two photo mats to keep them proportionate to the layout
  • use real dial size/real dial size set to on and set size at 3 1/2" to use the photo mats as a base under the leaf embellishments around the first two page layout
  • think about ways you can use keys on other projects too, for example, the arrows on the "Autumn Harvest" (second) layout on a Valentine's project
  • on the one-page 12" x 12" layout, keys from both pages 72 and 73 were used and the size was set at 8 1/2"
  • for the 8" x 8" layout, real dial size is off and the size set to 7 1/2" so you get a 1/4" border around the layout, see how large the pumpkin is if you set real dial size to on?
  • 8" x 8" layouts fit perfectly in the My Creations® Kraft 3-Ring Album (Z1871)
If you have missed earlier videos in the Artbooking Made Easy series, I am maintaining a list so they are easier to find. Just look for CTMH Cricut® Artbooking Collection in the green bar above.
