First Day of School layout made using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.

Hello, friends!


Today I have a layout made using the NEW Artbooking cartridge for the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog. This week's challenge is a back to school challenge and so I made this super simple layout using the new cartridge! The challenge actually wanted me to use a school bus, but I really wanted to make this layout instead. By the way, both pages of this layout are the second pages of stock layouts. This is what I am talking about in regards to mix and matching! I have illustrated what I mean below.

This cartridge has some really great stock layouts that are great for mixing and matching and all you have to do is set your dial to 11". Then cut away! If you like to design your layouts from scratch, there are tons of great cuts to make your layout your own. There are many set themes to choose from like the school theme that you see above along with Travel, Christmas, Fall, Spring, Winter, Sports, Baby, Valentines, Patriotism, Halloween, Birthday, and many more. Seriously, if you are new to scrapbooking or just want to quickly keep some books done this cartridge is for you!

I want to mention one more time that this cartridge is a good all around cartridge and can be easily used for card making and other projects!


The patterned paper is from Close To My Heart and is unfortunately retired.






This week's prize is the Pretty Pennants cartridge! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 11th.

What a fun LO. You did an amazing job and so love your paper and color choices. This cartridge just is blowing my mind with everything it has to offer. I so can't wait for it to arrive at my door. So can't wait to see what else you have in store for the whole month of August.
It's just plain exciting.
