Welcome to the September Blog Hop for the Brae-ers Consultant team.  Each talented consultant on this hop has completed a project using one of CTMH's versatile and amazing Cricut cartridges.  We are so fortunate that CTMH partnered with Cricut to create these cartridges, which are so useful and help to save time while we create beautiful artwork.

If you have come from the fabulous Brae's The Brae-er blog, you are in the right place.  Read on!

Clicking with Artbooking and Huntington

I am in love with Artbooking.  It's the newest CTMH Cricut cartridge and it offers so many layers and interesting things that I can add to my scrapbooking and cardmaking.  So when creating this layout, I made sure I gave it a good workout!

The first part of Artbooking that I used is the overlays.  I chose a great layout A New Perspective from one of our how-to books "Cherish", and I used the arrow cut overlays in place of plain cardstock.  To give them a bit more exposure, I turned them on an angle, so more of the paper showed.  These pieces are cut out of our Kraft cardstock.

One thing that we heard over and over when learning about Artbooking was "keep your negative pieces"!!  So I kept all of the arrows that were cut out from the overlays, and used them throughout the layout as accents.

The second part of Artbooking that I used were the titles.  These created great verbal accents that helped to reinforce the theme of the spread.

And lastly, I used a photo mat in the shape of a speech bubble for my journaling block.  I cut it twice -- once in Colonial White and once in Kraft, to create a shadow effect.

What else did I use?  I used papers left over from y Huntington Workshop on the Go, and added a burst of colour with the Sarita blue paper.  It helped to tied the photos in and brighten the layout a bit.  And I used the Artisan Studs like screws on the overlays -- it added a real mechanical feel that goes with skateboarding.

Enjoy your trip around this blog hop and see some great work to inspire you.  The next stop on your way is the spectacular Rosalynd Kelly at her "In my Scrapping Room" blog.

Have fun!
