As many of you know, Close to My Heart has just released a brand, new Cricut cartridge:  Artbooking!!! It's nothing short of fantastic!!!  Oh the things you will be creating with this cartridge - we don't even know where to begin!  So, we decided to show you some of the creations WE have made using this amazing, versatile cartridge  It's not just for scrapbookers you know.  There are 700 images with a ton of coordinating stamps.

If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one of the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!

In this hop, you will see projects featuring this versatile cartridges from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy our blog hop!  

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create.  If you came from Darla of Crafting is Contagious then you are in the right place!

 For my project I used the Huntington paper pack and a 12x12 frame (found at almost any craft store) and a dry erase marker. The calendar overlay found on page 68 in the Artbooking Cart. made this project very easy!! And the best part was that the cut outs could be put together to make another calendar, just in reversed form.

 I also used this Sun- Sat. photo mat cut out from page 79. 

 This is an easy project to put together as a way to communicate with our family or to make as a gift for someone else. 

 Using the "My Life" Stamp set (that comes with this wonderful collection) and cut outs from page 79 to make the days of the week arrows, its easy to change the calendar from month to month using a dry erase marker.
