So Sweet CTMH Artbooking Mini Album Kit

Are you ready for another great CTMH Artbooking project?  Here is an 8" mini book that have I designed using our now retired CTMH Sparkle and Shine paper packet along with a little help with the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.  It has seven pages, that's fourteen front and back, to place a whole bunch of photos or memories.  Isn't it SO SWEET?
I have taken all of the work out of this adorable album to make your life easier.  I have a very limited number of kits ready for your assembly enjoyment.  I have made all of the paper cut outs and provided all of the embellishments needed for only $25.

 Or, if you prefer, I have created a Cricut Craft Room file that will save you hours as well as paper.  Let's face it, trying to cut out each little shape and make them all fit while minimizing paper consumption can take A LOT of time, especially when occasionally using the real size dial.  My entire book was made from only half a pack of CTMH paper (I chose to use 4 sheets of my patterned paper, but you could opt to use more solid cardstock).  That means two mini books out of one CTMH paper pack!!!!   I will send to you, via USPS, an actual heart and xoxo cut out of CTMH Cotton Candy paper to comply with CTMH rules.  Your Cricut Craft Room file will be sent out within 24 hours of purchase, usually much sooner than that!
You must have Cricut Craft Room and the CTMH Artbooking cartridge for this option to work for you.  It is available for only $5.

I hope that you enjoy the rest of the album!

This Victory Double 2 Page Layout Kit can be yours for only $19.95 plus shipping.

My non-CTMH Layout Story

This might be a first for me - a non CTMH layout.  I was inspired by what one of my friends at a crop said to me last week.  She said that it was her New Year's resolution to work on completing all of the layout kits that she had just laying around, collecting dust.  So, I went through my stash and found a Storytellers kit containing three sheets of cardstock and three sheets of punch outs.  I was not fond of the bland layout that they had suggested, so I used my CTMH Art Philosophy and created that big striped square.  I then embossed some cardstock and layed out my pieces.  And...I ADDED PICTURES and JOURNALED!!!!  Can you believe it?  I was so proud of myself so I figured that I would share this accomplishment.
