In October of 2013, I went to the Close to My Heart Album Retreat which focused on the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge. This is one of the layouts we made all the details are on the post about the 10 Things layout. All of the shapes were cut with the Artbooking Cartridge. !
This layout encompassed our entire vacation last summer! I liked this layout but wanted to recreate it with a few variations, the main one being the bottom row of pictures not being so small! Rather than 1.5 inch pictures I used 2 in pictures. Because the pictures are bigger so I only put 3 on the left page and two on the right page.
I also didn't wrap the hearts with baker's twine or use the pins through it. The arrow stamping had to go below the photos on the left because of the larger photos.
I did spray the base pages with Slate Reinker with our spray pens while the bases were covered with an overlay cut with the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge. It adds a bit more texture to the layouts. It also satisfies the Challenge #6 on The Scrap Our Stash Blog.
