Ahhhh my Cricut, plus my Artfully Sent cartridge makes project life very easy and beautiful. I have been working diligently on finishing 2014 and I am almost there. I only have November and December left and those months don’t have a whole ton of pictures because in November I do my 30 days of Thankful and in December I do a December Daily album.
I was using the scaredy pack paper and my Cricut to finish up our Halloween photos from last year. The complements really helped me decorate my cards and my Cricut helped me make embellishments as I was starting to run out of ideas. I found an adorable little monster in Design Space that I had a ton of fun creating and he looks really good with the layouts because he matched the baby’s costume. I even grabbed some of my acrylic paint and a stencil to create one of my own cards for the layout.
Now let’s talk about the Artfully Sent cartridge that really helped me with these pocket layouts. The Artfully Sent cartridge is not just for making gorgeous cards, it is also for making gorgeous pocket cards and there are some cards that were perfect for my Halloween layouts.
After I finished my Halloween layouts I realized that I was done with the month of October but I had one small problem, the back of the last page didn’t have any photos so I had to come up with something. I decided to use the Artfully Sent Cartridge and see what I could find based on a family type theme since November is the next month in my album. I used the Pathfinding paper pack as well for this side of my layout to go on with the family/thankful theme that I am trying to bring into the next month.
I really love how the back of my layout turned out, the cards that I was able to make with the Artfully sent cartridge came out beautifully and I really love the colors that are available with the Pathfinding paper, especially the blue paper. The heart that is in the Good Times card is available in Design Space as part of the subscription and I loved the fact that it looked like it was a wood grain heart. You can see that you don’t have to have photos to complete a layout and that you can decorate a project life layout any way you see fit as it is your album. Truly this page with no photos is one of my favorites in my 2014 album.
The scaredy cat paper and pathfinding paper will only be available until August 31st and then they will be retired. Grab them while you can by clicking HERE.
