I don’t really make a lot of fall cards and items, but if I did I would use this stamp!  So I went for the holiday flair on this.  Using frosted paper,  I made a very simple card.  This stamp is HUGE and is such a nice touch to a simple card!

CTMH Fall/Winter 2013 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to our Fall/Winter 2013 New Product Blog Hop! We have over 35 participants in the blog hop!   We will be featuring a variety of creations made from NEW products in the Fall/Winter 2013 Idea Book!  If you have come here from Dawn’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

I am just loving the Cricut ARTbooking collection! (Z1906 $99.00)  It has so many mini-albums and everything is size to fit – meaning when I cut my mini-album at 8″ everything I cut on ANY page is scaled to fit an 8″ page!   I really loved the Babycakes Paper Pack (X7173B $9.95) and Babycakes Complements (X7173C $5.95) so I got myself a My Creations Kraft 3 Ring Album (Z1871 $5.95) to put it in and off I went!

For the most part, I used the two keys for the Baby Mini-Album but I also cut some additional items from other keys to supplement.  Here it is….

I covered the album with Babycakes paper and cut the Hello World from Artbooking:

baby coverDidn’t want to cover up those cute giraffes too much!

baby 2Artbooking has the adorable little envelopes in this mini-album with the ring holes already cut out – perfect for baby items in this book!

baby2The overlay is the half option and it is really cute here…

baby3Also an option is the half vertical page – I thought the bottom could be used for journaling.


baby4And the back for a picture!

baby5Another envelope from Artbooking in the middle of the page this time.



The right page has the full overlay option – this would also be very cute on a card front.

baby7The folder on the left is open at the top to insert keepsakes!

baby8Loving the muted tones on these pages…

baby9Now I had to cover some of the giraffes this time…


baby11This is my favorite envelope – it’s all three rings and can hold a ton of memories!

baby12with room on the back to journal!
