Artbooking Layout Series – Freedom 2

Celebrate Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Dotty For You Paper (retired), CTMH Cardstock (White Daisy & Cotton Candy), CTMH Black & Grey Glitter Paper, foam dots, Tattered Angels Trunk Bay Glitter Mist.

Glitter Mist was the perfect solution to toning down the brightness of the white cardstock and blended it better with the layout.  I am not much for journaling but this was a time that I didn’t want to forget.  Sometimes I will just write on the back of a layout but this one I used the space around the photo mats.

TIP: The stars on the photo mats (attached with pop-dots) are the inside shape from the starburst on the top of the page.  Since the inside star cut first I set the starburst to cut on the Cricut and then used the stop button when the inside star was done and repeated this until I had a bunch of the small stars to use for the rest of my layout.

Artbooking Layout Series – Freedom 1

Sweet Baby Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Sweet Leaf, White Daisy, Cotton Candy, & Black), unknown patterned paper, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH stamp set, Tattered Angels Pearl Glitter Mist, and Zig Markers.

I used the basic layout from the right side of the Freedom Layout but changed up the title (I used Sweet from page 85).  You can’t see from my picture but I used Glitter Mist on the white overlay and it looks so pretty in person.  I added a stamping to the background of the stars.  I can’t remember the stamp set I used but any background or pattern would work.  The punched out green star also fit perfectly within the overlay to add focus to my title.

Playtime at Sea World Layout

I have done some pages lately but haven’t had a chance to take any pictures so here’s another layout from last year:

Products used: DCWV paper, CTMH flowers, Tattered Angels glitter mist, CTMH Giggle alphabet stamps, Darice rhinestone stickers, and CTMH Cherish book.

The girls had a blast at this fun contraption within the park at Sea World in California.  They just bounced back and forth!  The flowers were white and I sprayed them with pink glitter mist to add color and sparkle.

K Monogram Card

This card may have turned out even better than planned.  I really like it but I wanted to do the stitching in white.  The only white thread I had was too thick to fit through the needle on my machine so this was my next choice.  Funny thing is this is the only time I ever sew!  The one exception would be girl scout patches and last year I found it easier to hot glue them on.  It was the only thing I found to work and I tried everything!  Anyway, back to my card…I used my glitter mist again (fun!), just for the letter K.  The butterflies came with glitter on them already.  I also folded the wings of the butterflies for an even more 3D look which really adds to the card.  They were easy to fold once I attached the pearls.

Products used: Making Memories paper, Bo Bunny paper, Basic Grey Opaline pearls, Basic Grey chipboard monogram letter, Tattered Angels Pink Bubblegum glitter mist, and Making Memories glitter butterflies.

Challenges:
Midnight Madness #16 – sketch
Paper Cutz Challenge #5 – something that flies

B Monogram Card

I decided with the busy patterned paper on this card that I didn’t need any embellishments.  I’m glad to have a masculine card done.  This was the first time I have used glitter mist and what fun!!  The color I used was not near as bright as I expected but I like how fast it dries.  I definately need to experiment more!

Products used: CTMH Good Times paper and Chocolate cardstock, Basic Grey chipboard monogram, Tattered Angels blue skies glitter mist.
