Artbooking Made Easy: Fun in the Sun

Today marks another “transition”: this will be the final Artbooking Made Easy post.
To go out with a splash, I want to share with you some ideas on how to use the summertime-themed keys for your summer photos and memories. Get a final look at the masterful pieces you’ve come to expect in this series, along with some helpful hints on how to create similar projects by watching the video.
so whether your favorite summer vacation is camping in the woods or swimming in the ocean, the summertime-themed keys on Close To My Heart's Artbooking cartridge will have the perfect cutouts to use in recording all your unforgettable memories. Contact ME your Independent Consultant for more information.

I love this Family Vacation layout, not only because it features beach scenes and embellishments (because who doesn’t love the beach?) but because it incorporates the journaling so creatively. The hexagon numbers are a fun way to match up each adorable photo with a caption, don’t you think?
There is also some fantastic layering used here. A square of B&T, a journal spot, and some cardstock turn this combo of a photo mat into much more than a photo mat—it’s a scene to behold. With the photo atop that, held in place by washi tape and stitching, and a few embellishments more, the entire piece is a little work of art all on its own.
 When you work with a busy layout like this one but have details you still want to add, make use of your photo space. Crop a photo so that the focal person isn’t precisely in the center, leaving room for a stamped sentiment or extra accessory over the open space.
Move to the next layout and you’ll notice that though a lot of the same shapes were used, yet the layouts look totally different. 

A change in size, paper, placement, and embellishment give every single shape on the Artbooking cartridge multiple looks. With 700 images on the cartridge, that means the possibilities are as high as the sky—a big, blue, open summer sky.

From one artist to another, keep dreaming! You’re as free as you let yourself be in your creativity. It’s my hope that the Cricut® Artbooking cartridge gives you all the right ingredients you need for expanding your artistic world and capturing the moments that matter most.
