Artbooking Vacation Mini-Album

The new Autumn/Winter Idea Book is live!! I love where CTMH is taking this company and it is my absolute pleasure to share this special project made from the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.

Before I share my project I would like to give a shout out to Tresa Black for allowing me to be part of her hop. Not only does she create AMAZING art but she has selflessly allowed us consultants to use her linky tool to help inspire and showcase the fabulous items by CTMH*. So, thank you Tresa!

Album Open
Now on to the project...I am a huge fan of mini-albums so when I saw that the Artbooking cartridge has 10 mini-albums I just knew I had to make one! The base for this mini came from the 8 x 8 Travel Mini-Album found on pages 38 & 39 of the Artbooking handbook. It truly was a snap to make since once I set the size dial to 8" everything cut proportionately! No mess, no guesswork...just faster, simpler and easier!

I plan on using this album for our 2012 family trip to Hawaii. I'm still waiting for my photos to be developed so in the meantime I used photo place cards. In case you're wondering, no, I did not submit the photos for processing in 2012. Lol!!
