Baby Photo Album - Cricut Cartridge Arbooking, Cricut Expression, Silhouette Cameo

Hi Everyone!  I hope you all have had a good weekend!  We are still in the process of celebrating Jacob's 13th birthday.  He thinks his celebrations should continue on through the weekend which they usually do.  Yes, you're right, he is somewhat spoiled!

Now on to my project!!  I have a friend, Melissa, that is having a baby boy in March.  The department she works in at our hospital held a baby shower for her and Baby Lucah on Friday.  So as part of her gift, I decided that I would make her a photo album.

Now I must say that I have fallen in LOVEEEEE with the new Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.  If you ever want to make a photo album for someone, this is the cartridge for you.  There are so many different sizes and styles of books that you can choose from and all you have to do is choose the book/page you want to make, load the paper, and cut!!  VIOLA - a la book!!!

I decided to make the 8 x 6 photo album which is a baby theme book.  I did use a few of my other Cricut Cartridges to add more embellishments like a choo choo train to some of the pages but most of the embellishments, overlays, sayings, etc. came straight off this cartridge. 

The title on the front of the book was created with the Silhouette Cameo - downloaded, printed, and cut - then I popped it with 3D pop dots. I hope you enjoy see the different pages below:

I gave this book to Melissa on Friday and she LOVED it.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Mom and I appreciate your visits and your comments.  It was nice to read some of your comments last week saying that you had missed our posts.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna

  8. Wow that album is absolutely beautiful! It was so great to see something made with the Artbooking cartridge. I bought it back in November but I haven't had the time to play around with it. You inspired me and now I want to make an album. By the way, where did you get the stamp for the back page. I love the design and have been looking for a nice address label.
