Laughing Lola Artbooking Mini Album

Laughing Lola is one of the new paper packs featured in the Autumn/Winter idea book.  It is my favorite paper pack from this book and maybe of all time from Close to My Heart. I am simply drawn to the colors in this pack.    One of our projects at convention was this great little mini album that was cut from the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge.   For those of you who don't know about the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge, it is amazing.  It has ten themed mini albums included in the over 700 images.  Although, I might not have chosen these exact colors, it turned out to be a very fun little album.  Originally, the pages that were cut from the cartridge were made to be folded and actually put together like a book.   Because of all the dimensionals on the pages, I decided to cut my pages apart and use rings to put my album together.

Along with the Laughing Lola paper pack, the Laughing Lola Complements Dimensional Elements and the Laughing Lola Assortment were used throughout the album.  

All of the cut outs were made from the Artbooking cartridge as well.  I used the Geometric Background Stamp set to stamp several of the cut out shapes, like the arrow on the page above. 

Some of the album pages are designed to have pockets which would be great for journaling tags, photos, or even ephemera that was collected form a trip or event. 

The Artbooking cartridge has some great overlays.  If you keep the fall out from the overlays you can use it again for another design.  For example on these pages, the fallout from the honeycomb designed overlay was used on the opposing page.  

The Artbooking cartridge also has several titles, like the "You + Me" above.  

This was a fun little album to put together.   I haven't had time to play with the cartridge and make more, but I do believe it's going to be a favorite.  For those who love creating your own mini albums, this cartridge is a must.  

For more information on the new Artbooking cartridge stop by my website or contact me. Remember for the month of August, you not only receive the three sheets of dimensional elements and three full size stamp sets, but you get the stamp of the month, A Chocolate Affair,  for FREE!  That's four full size stamp sets that you will get with your Artbooking bundle. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! 

Happy Scrapping!
