Artbooking Layout Series – Springtime 2

Spring Layout by Wendy Kessler

 

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Sky, Hollyhock, Gypsy, & Buttercup), and Recollections Rhinestone Stickers.

I like how the Rhinestone stickers made everything come together for this page.  The film strip is originally made to fit four photos.  I just trimmed it at the end since I only had three.

I just love all the bling on this simple page.  And just in case there wasn’t enough I added a couple glitter brads. ;-)

Artbooking Layout Series – School 2

Think, Grow, Learn Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge, CTMH Paper (retired), CTMH Cardstock (Outdoor Denim, Indian Corn Blue), and Brown & Tan Glitter Paper.

I had already ripped up what was left of the paper I used to cut the photo mats into scraps.  If I hadn’t, this would have been an easy way to find the placement for the numbers and letters that I wanted to cut out of glitter paper.  I only had scraps and who wants to waste that much paper cutting the whole thing anyway.   Since I didn’t have the paper, I “cut” the photo mat without any paper on my Cricut mat.  I could then see where it had cut and was able to line up my scrap where it needed to be and repeat the cut.  I really wanted to add embellishments to this page but I just couldn’t because it really looks great as is.

Come back on January 3 for a Cloud Nine Blog Hop where you can see more uses for this card kit than just making the specifically designed cards!

This was a very quick and easy card kit!  Below are the pics of the cards as I made them, most are the same as the kit specifies.  Note that there are both gold and silver Durables Triangle Studs.  I didn’t realize this until I was working on the last card and I needed more gold.  On some cards it doesn’t matter but if if there is Washi Tape used on the card you are going to want to use the gold studs.

I changed this to a Happy Birthday card since I use so many of those.  I was lazy and didn’t want to mask the Happy Birthday stamp so I tried using a sponge dauber to ink the stamp.  It worked for the most part but I had a couple smudges around the edge…thus my added swirls that I made with a marker to camouflage my flaw.

Both times when I stamped the mustache I thought I was “off” and it turned out perfectly.  Focus on lining up the center when you stamp this one.  Also, if you want this to look exactly like the picture, you will need to attach the Washi Tape first and layer the B&T Paper overtop.  I just centered my B&T Paper and lined up the Washi Tape along the top and bottom so you can see the difference in my picture.

Cloud Nine Card 4 by Wendy KesslerCard 4 – Happy Birthday

Cloud Nine Card 5 by Wendy KesslerCard 5 – Love You
A note on this one: for the big heart you only need to get good ink coverage around the edge because the center of the heart will be covered.  And make sure you stamp the smaller heart and sponge the larger one so they layer correctly.

**As a last note, when using the stamp set with the Artiste Cricut cartridge for future projects, you need to use Real Dial Size.
