Artbooking Made Easy: Sugar & Spice

Artbooking Made Easy: Sugar & Spice is the latest in the video series Artbooking Made Easy. Each week until April 2014 (except occasional breaks for holidays) Close To My Heart releases a new video in the series. Each video has tips, tricks and project inspiration for using the Artbooking collection.

This week's video Artbooking Made Easy: Sugar & Spice has the CTMH Corp. description "Add a little sass and pizzazz to your teen girl layouts using the Cricut® Artbooking cartridge from Close To My Heart! Watch the video and contact your Independent Consultant to learn more."

A few points I want to be certain that you do not miss while watching the video:
  • the projects were created with the teen layout keys
  • you will find the keys on pages 80 and 81 of the Artbooking booklet
  • the "10 Things" layout was cut at 11 inches with Real Dial Size off
  • two different half overlays were used on this two-page layout
  • the heart border was embellished with scribble stamps (see yesterday's post)
  • the heart photo mats have a slit which the Cricut® will cut for you so you can slide your photos in - no adhesive needed
  • the "Giggles & Grins" layout uses overlays from the same key, but one is a full overlay and the other is a half overlay, both were cut at 11 inches with Real Dial Size off; the overlays were not backed with cardstock to allow the base B&T™ to show through
  • the photo mats come from both keys
  • these keys were used to create a cards too, the half overlay for the "butterfly card" was cut at 2 3/4"with Real Dial Size on; the green focal is a photo mat and cut at 2 3/4 inches; the heart border was cut at 11 inches and cut to fit the card (save the extra border for another project)
  • in Jeanette Lynton's post, Artbooking Made Easy: Teen Layouts, you will find even more detail, closeup photos and a list of supplies used for each album; I love the idea to use the "10 Things" die cut as a key for labeling photos (or other elements) on a layout
  • also on Jeanette Lynton's post is the chance to win your own Artbooking collection - the winner will be announced next Monday (Feb 10) so be sure to head over there now to leave a comment
