Today is not only the first of July but it is also the first day of our new Design Team at Heart 2 Heart Challenges
! These amazing ladies haven't even been introduced yet and they're already crafting up a storm! Our monthly scrapbook challenge is posted on the first, and July's is Red and White Daisy with the option of Blue. At first I struggled with what to make, but then I remember that I needed a title page layout for my Cranberry "friends" album. Voila
Everything that you see on this layout was cut with the CTMH/Cricut Artbooking cartridge (on p. 78 & p. 79). I remembered the BFF circle, so I found it and loved all the elements to make this page. This is actually the right side layout featured on p. 79, but I did add the "friends forever" brackets from p. 78. The Artbooking cartridge is so easy to use! I decided on my color palette of Cranberry, Sky, and Whisper with a pop of Black and then cut away.
First I cut the two photo mats from Sky card stock. (Do you see my two little arrow accents from the negatives?) I added the Friends Forever brackets (cut from Whisper card stock), some Slate washi tape, and a Slate twist tie.
I used two of the stamp sets from the Artbooking collection to for all the stamped pieces. I decided to use red shimmer trim behind the Whisper arrow border to make those arrows pop. I added several red glitter gems to finish off the layout.
This corner also shows my faux stitching with a Sky marker.
Now to find a pair of friend pictures to finish this layout! That shouldn't be too challenge.
BTW, I have been working on getting all my finished layouts into albums and here is my progress so far:
(Before: piles of layouts in the floor)
(Before: albums on the shelf)
NOW: the layouts on the floor still need to be sorted, but look how full that bookshelf is getting!
