Cricut Artbooking make a wish scrapbooking layout!

Hello, friends!

Today I have a birthday layout I made using the NEW Artbooking cartridge. Now this is one of the 'stock' layouts with a little bit extra added. You know I had to make it my own *wink*. You will notice in the pics of the handbook below that the colors I used are the ones that they used in the handbook. I typically do not do this as I think you guys deserve better from me than that. However, I thought they did such a great job with the colors I went ahead and used them. These are not colors I would have thought to use for a birthday layout! Sometimes you just have to go with it.

Thank you for illustrating the methodology behind this new cartridge. I'm wondering how one could adapt this cartridge to use for 8.5" x 11" pages. That is the size I mostly use for my scrapbook pages. Any ideas?!

Great LO!! Sometimes we just need to replicate what is shown, so don't apologize. I never would of paired those colors either, but they really really do look wonderful together.
