Artbooking In August: Week #3

Welcome to week three of our Artbooking blog hop.  If you arrived from HeatherJane's Blog you are in the right spot.  This is week #3 of our blog hop and we were challenged with completing 4 different projects using the Artbooking Cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.  

Our mission is to design each of the following 4 projects:
1.  2-page layout
2.  Card
3.  Mini Album
4.  Home Decor or giftable item

Last week I completed #4.  To see my project, click here.

This week I completed a card to complement the giftable item I made last week.  I plan on giving this as a gift.

Did you know you can make glitter paper almost any CTMH color you want?  I used our Black Glitter Paper and Tan Glitter Paper along with our Lagoon Mini Pigment Ink.  I cut the flowers from our AMAZING Artbooking Cartridge.  I cut the tan flower a 1/2 inch smaller than the black glitter flower.  I then used the pigment ink to cover both.  By using the 2 different colors of glitter paper, I got 2 beautiful shades of blue that were perfect for our Laughing Lola Paper.  And of course, I had to add some bling to the middle of the flower from our Base and Bling collection.  

I also used our cartridge to cut the design for my "Thank You".  Check out these fun new stamp sets here.  

I will be finishing a collection of 10 cards and putting them in my gift box from last week.  I had a lot of fun with this project.

Thanks for hopping by.  Hop on over to Jody's Blog to see what amazing project she has waiting for you.

Happy Scrapping!


  1. Love the cards and the addition of the gift box from last time is genius!

  2. Love the idea of changing the glitter paper color! TFS that.
