Hi and thanks for dropping in to check out my week thirty two. Continuing to use the Becky Higgins Jade kit I picked on the lovely grey tones in that kit this week. They don’t provide much colour, that’s true, but with the coloured photos and some nice pops of bright white I am quite pleased with how it all came together. I had also recently invested in the Close To My Heart – Artbooking Cricut cartridge bundle and oh my I am in love. There are so many designs on this cartridge it is currently my absolute go to. I have amassed quite a number of Cricut cartridges over the years but this on surely has more designs than any others. And the bundle comes with a matching stamp set and more…. but enough of that, let’s go have a look at the pages.
As is tradition we start with the left side of the layout. A lot of digital on this side & I drew some inspiration on this page form the ever so wonderful Ali Edwards and her ‘Hello Story’ class. She’s amazing and I watch her classes in awe. In particular the maths signs incorporated into the homework picture came form this class and also some digital elements from it.
My favourite on this page is this picture of April messaging her friend in Adelaide. It was a first for her and I just love the feel of this photo and I just added 3 little snippets of what it’s all about.
Over to the right side eight here. Immediately the large picture on the top right stands out and the bright pops of white which are all cuts from the Artbooking Cartridge.
I printed this photo in a 6×8 size to cut it up. I then used my Cricut Craftroom to get the “Special” to the perfect size and viola. I am really happy with it.
You’ll also notice the little notebook page side on the Weekly review card. That is also from the same cartridge.
I love this picture of Mackenzie with her bright red hands after making volcanos at school. Sitting next to the simple grey journalling card it really makes the colour pop and does not distract your eye.
Wow I have talked a lot this week. Here is the full weekly layout as it sits in my album. You’ll note I added a few links to the CTMH – Artbooking Cartridge on this page. If you own a cricut and are interested, the link will take you straight to a self service portal where you can buy the cartridge bundle from me along with other great offers and goodies. As with most things the more you spend the better the offers for other goodies. I don’t eve try to resist anymore :). As always if you have any questions please send me an email by clicking HERE.
Thanks ever so much for Dropping In
