Artiste in August Blog Hop–Day 4: Any Shape Day

Welcome to day 4 of the


Let the fun continue with the month-long blog hop featuring 3-D projects from the fabulous *NEW* Cricut Artiste Collection exclusively from Close To My Heart!


If you are coming from Jen Patrick’s blog, you are on the right path. If this is your first stop, then continue on by clicking on the link to the next hopper at the end of this post.


Today is ‘Any Shape’ day so I decided to share with you a mini-album project I created for my Extravaganza presentation at the Close To My Heart Convention in July. I used the Pear & Partridge collection I was assigned…with a twist.

This is one of the features of the Cricut Artiste Collection that I LOVE! The entire album (cover & pages) are on ONE key, the ‘l’ key featured on pg. 59 of the Cricut Artiste Handbook. You can find THREE keys that feature mini albums!

I only used the Olive B&T Duo paper from the Pear & Partridge paper packet along with Cranberry, Lagoon, Smoothie & White Daisy cardstock.


I cut the entire mini album at 3” as recommended in the handbook. I decorated the album with other Artiste images like the snowflake found on pg. 79 and ‘merry christmas’ found on pg. 80. As you can see, I cut off the ‘merry’.

Did you notice that glittery tape? It’s CTMH’s *NEW* Silver Shimmer Trim. Love this stuff so much!


Here is what is so fabulous about THIS mini album…the inside pages progress in length and all have different edges!


I used the Cork Alphabet for my numbers and covered them our *NEW* Exclusive Inks Mini Pigment Pads in the Adventure Collection (Cranberry & Lagoon). I used a heat gun & a ittle baby powder to set the ink.


This mini album was so much fun to create! I’ll be sharing more pages during the month, so don’t forget to check back!
