Costa Rica: Skylark Classic scrapbook page with Picture My Life

I received this beautiful layout in a swap with some of the Costa Rica earners.  These women are talented!  I love how this layout uses both the paper packet and the Skylark Picture My Life set.   The individual cards are great as journaling blocks and photo mats.  The designs coordinate perfectly and the rounded corners add a simple interest to the page.

Fun with Artbooking

You may have seen the pocket album that my secret sister made for me in Costa Rica.  If not, you can see it here.  This is the album that I created for my secret sister.  I used the Artbooking Cricut cartridge to create the background overlay.  Then the new embossing folder for the polka dot green background.  By running ink over the raised texture, some of the dots became darker and then I added a few aquadots, I added a little more color.  The pocket albums are such a fun way to keep your memories of a special event. 

Remember, this month, when you purchase the starter kit, you can add a Cricut cartridge bundle for free.  Which cartridge would you choose?  If you need more information about becoming part of the Evergreen Memories Team and Consultant club, contact me

Make Artiste your party planning friend.

This year I held my second tea party for my customers and I was able to use the Artiste Cricut Cartridge to create these "tea bag" invitations.  The cartridge has several unique card that can be used for your party.  Having a movie night?  What about a ticket invite?  Is the birthday a space theme?  What about a planet with rings for a invite?  There are so many options and many that can be used for a variety of themes.  Check out the handbook of images here

And remember, through April, you can choose to add a free Cricut Cartridge to your starter kit.  Will you choose Artiste?
