I'm spending a lot of time just playing with our new Cricut Artbooking collection. This cartridge is just too much fun! No energy or brainpower wasted trying to figure out sizes...just set the dial and play! Everything here was cut at 11", except the hexagon, which was a last minute addition to help the title pop and was cut RealDialSize at 3"!I used the new CTMH ProPlayer Paper Packet (X7172B), with Ruby, Outdoor Denim and Slate cardstocks (which are included in the pack) and I also used a piece of Whisper cardstock for the title, photo placeholders and some of the overlay backings to give a little shading.
I grabbed my little sewing machine to add some quick stitching around the layout and also around the hexagon...gotta have my textures!
The embellishments (corrugated arrows, stars & hexagons and metal-rimmed badge buttons) came from the ProPlayer Assortment (Z1879).
I placed the zipstrip from the ProPlayer paper beneath the arrows in the photo mats to give a little pop of color! Since I didn't have photos ready for this layout, I only adhered the photo mats along the left side so I can lift them up and slide the photos into place when I'm ready!
I used foam tape to pop up the title and added the outdoor denim hexagon with stitching to help the title pop off the page a little better.
Artbooking Cuts (all at 11" unless otherwise indicated):
<PhotoMat1><Shift><BFF> (cut 2 of these)
<PhotoMat2><BFF> (cut 2 of these)
Outdoor Denim Cardstock:
<Border><Shift><L> (real dial size 3")
I used scraps from my cardstock to cut different circles to be placed under the overlay. I found it easiest to glue those pieces onto the back of the overlays first, then to glue the overlays down.
