Brae-er Team Blog Hop - Cricut Inspired

Welcome to the Brae-er's September Blog Hop.  This hop is circular in nature, so if you started here, welcome.  If you came from Rosalynd's blog and saw her great art then you are in the right place.  This month we are featuring projects that are cricut inspired.  CTMH came out with another Cricut cartridge in July called ArtBooking and I absolutely love it.  I had so much fun playing with it and creating this mini album that you are about to see.  I do not have any pictures in it yet...have to get them printed in different sizes that I currently you just have to use your imagination.  I will warn you that this post is very picture heavy.  Have fun looking what my imagination came up with.  Everything in this album except the picture mats is cut with the Cricut ArtBooking cartridge (set at 6") with the exception of some of the pink snowflakes.  They are cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  The album itself is made with the Frosted paper pack and a sheet of Cotton Candy cardstock and Cocoa cardstock,  some small flourishes, bitty pearls,  bitty sparkles and rhinestone clusters from the new rosewood mini medley collection.

Pink Overlay is from Art Philosophy.

Room for 3 little photos.  Snowflakes are from the overlay in a later page.  I love that you can use them for other parts of the project.
Room for 1 photo.  I used liquid applique to puff up the word SNOW.
Overlay for a photo.  Snowflake is one of the crocheted flowers CTMH carries.

Room for an oval photo.
Room for two 1.5 x 2" photos.

Envelope for storing memorabilia.
Filmstrips hold lots of little photos or 2 long narrow ones.
Pocket that holds 3 tags - great for more pictures or for lots of journaling!

Overlay and paper hinges to 'hide' the picture and to show the snowflake effect over the picture.
Three 3" flip flaps to hold more pictures.

Page for journaling or more pictures. The flip side is exactly the same but for the pattern on the paper.

Inside back cover.
These are just some of the pages.  There are 21 pages in total, but some of them I left very plain so that the pictures would take the show.  I do not have any pictures developed yet as I said earlier, so I did not include those pages.
I hope that you have enjoyed my mini album.  Please leave any comments that you may have...I would love to hear from you. 
Now it is time to go on to the next blog in this blog hop.  And that blog belongs to Tamara.  Go and check out her wonderful artwork.  Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and your long weekend, Lucy :)
