The Amazing Skylark -Layout featuring Cricut Artbooking

Yes you may have guessed by now that my favourite paper pack is Skylark! I love to use it as it is so versatile and goes with EVERYTHING!   In this layout I use Skylark and the Cricut Artbooking cartridge (as well as a few other items) to share the amazement I feel as I watch my daughter grow and develop- the things she can do are simply amazing!

My layout it fairly simple- it is one of the patterns that is featured in our Make it From Your Heart-Volume 2 book (if you have not picked one of these up I highly recommend it!  It is full of layout patterns with cutting directions AND has card patterns as well!)

I added a few things to my layout – sparkle flourishes, Midtown Cork Shapes, One-Way Borders stamp set and pigment ink to stamp with (gives the colours a bit more ‘pop’).  I also used the Cricut Artbooking cartridge to create my title AND the heart cluster.  I have used this heart cluster a few times- it comes from a larger overlay cut on Artbooking- I cut it in different papers and then hand trim off clusters and lay the layers together. I really like the look!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #11

Well I am still waiting for more new product to come – I think tomorrow it should be here 🙂 

In the meantime I decided to work in the sketch challenge that my friends Michelle and Darla put together! To see the sketch visit

When I saw the challenge I immediately thought OMBRE! Yep- weird! But I pulled this together and love it- all cardstock from CTMH and I added in some accents from the ruby mini-medley and the metal base and bling accessories. The stamp set I used is one that comes with the cricut Artbooking bundle! 
All of this will be available August 1 st on my website at
