Artiste Mini Scrapbook Layout Featuring Artbooking Cricut Cartridge

Hi, this is Donna Lee from http://stampinnscrapinwithdonnalee.wordpress.com/.  Not long ago I received the new Artbooking Cricut Collection from Close To My Heart and I was oh so happy to get to play with it!  I have a Mini Album that I made using the Artiste Cricut Collection that need to add some embellishments to. You can see that album on this post,http://stampinnscrapinwithdonnalee.wordpress.com/2013/06/08/mini-album-2-artiste-cricut-cartridge/ .
One of my favorite cuts on the Artbooking cartridge is this branch (border) and adorable owl (Icon).

I was not able to use my Gypsy or CCR because the Artbooking Cricut cartridge has not been added to the updates. I started with cutting the Icon images at 4.25 inches to get an idea as to how they would size because they are set to cut based on the size of the entire layout they are attached to.  That being said, you can use the Real Dial Size key to get them to the exact height you want but I wanted to see what they would cut like at different sizes. I also cut two at 6.75 inches. The eyes and feet cut, but I chose not to use them.

Just like the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges the Artbooking cartridge cuts with great detail at very small sizes! You are going to love this Cricut Collection! 

I needed a title for my Mini Scrapbook layout and thought this "look whoos here" would be perfect. This is cut a 6.75 inches. I am using a vellum from Hobby Lobby. My blade is always at 6 for any paper, my speed is at Medium and speed is set at a High. 

As you can see, it cut perfectly! 

I added some bling for her eyes and inked the edges of my branch and leaves. I used dimensional adhesive to pop the 4.25 inch branch and owl onto my mini layout.

A simple 3X3 mat was added for a photo and this page is done! The Artbooking Cricut Collection makes scrap booking or card making a breeze no matter what size you are working on! The images on this cartridge are very versatile for all paper crafters.
