so after a some major issues (mostly blonde moments) in my ordering and then making a project with a stamp that is no longer available I almost pulled out of this blog hop. . . but them I saw my cricut sitting on its shelf and had idea . . . I started to play!




Here is what I managed to create using my cricut and 2 of the CTMH Cricut Cartridges.


Close to my Heart Artbooking Cartridge is full of layouts and projects that are just waiting for you to make your own!

There is a spot for a 6 x 8 photo (once I decide on Photos I see more embelishments being added)

I love this overlay layout! so many ways to change it up with photos, paper, accessories, and what every else you'd like to add - ticket stubs would be fun too! hmmmm (just got an idea for another layout! but you'll have to wait :)

Close to my Heart's Cricut Cartridges are full of fun images and phrases for you to add to your projects



Here is what I used to create this fun layout:

CTMH Artbooking Cuicut Cartridge - Z1906
