Hello everyone. I am hosting this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. I have selected a Cricut School bus as the challenge cut. You must use a Cricut cut School Bus on your project. The Design Team did a fabulous job on their School Bus projects so be sure to head over to BBTB2 after you are finished here and check out the team's projects.
I made a layout for this week featuring a back to school theme - First Day. I used two cartridges to create this layout - CTMH Artbooking and My Community. I cut the sun backgrounds (large and smaller), the photo mats, and the phrase "First Day" using Artbooking.
The school bus and pencil were cut using the My Community cartridge. I liked the fun multi-layer school bus on this cartridge and I though the pencil was a perfect little embellishment for this layout.
I really like the details on the photo frames and the background of the layout. There are are so many photo mats and frames on Artbooking that it is easy to find fun frames to use on your layouts.
For the photo mats on the right page, I welded three frames together in Cricut Craft Room to create a wide rectangle to hold three photos.
The little student in the lower corner of my page is also from the My Community cartridge. He look so cute waiting for the bus to pick him up for his first day!
As I said above, I used only two cartridges to create this layout and one of them is Artbooking, the new Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridge. Artbooking is available exclusively from your Close To My Heart consultant. If you do not have a CTMH consultant, I would love to be YOUR consultant!
I am going to remind you again what comes in your Artbooking bundle: Three fabulous stamp sets.... I truly love this first stamp set. Three large sheet of coordinating chipboard sheets and the cartridge manual, overlay, and cartridge.
Let's "sweeten the deal": Close To My Heart has decided that anyone who purchases $50+ worth of merchandise in the month of August will receive the August Stamp of the Month - A CHOCOLATE AFFAIR for FREE! That's right - this stamp set is FREE when you order Artbooking.
Anyone who orders a cartridge through my on-line store in the month of August will go into the drawings for my special giveaways.
