Creating Pocket Cards in Cricut Design Space™

Are you ready for some new Cricut Design Space™ ideas? Today we’re going to walk you through creating your very own pocket cards for your pocket scrapbooking layouts. Making pocket cards is a great and relatively easy way to add unique shapes or titles to your memory keeping projects using images that can be manipulated in Design Space. Simply follow our steps below to learn how.

This layout shows three different pocket cards made with the You Are Here Cricut® collection. The variety of shapes from this travel-themed collection pair perfectly with the colors and patterns of the Fresh Air paper.

IMG_0052

These three pocket cards come together quickly when you use tools like Contour and Slice in Design Space. Let’s show you how to make the layered pieces for the title card, “THE Adventure BEGINS,” from one image in Design Space.

Before getting started, make sure you own the You Are Here Cricut® collection so you can use the same title that we did on this pocket card. You will also need a Cricut® machine that is Design Space™ compatible (any of the Explore models or the new Maker) to link your collections to your account. (If you do not know how to do this, click here.)

The steps below show you how to work in Design Space from a desktop or laptop computer. If you use the app on a mobile device, the buttons and tools will be located in slightly different places on your screen, but the same features are available on any device.

1. Sign in to Cricut Design Space™ at design.cricut.com.

Log in with your Cricut ID and password, and then select the green New Project button in the top right corner.

2. Insert and resize a basic square shape.

Step 2

To make the pocket card base, you will first insert a square by clicking on Shapes on the left side of your screen. Next you can easily resize this square to a 4″ x 6″ rectangle. Click the lock to unlock the size and change the width to 6″ and the height to 4″.

3. Insert the title image and resize.

Step 3

To add the title from the You Are Here collection to your canvas, click Images on the left side of your screen. Then search for image #M2763105 in the search box at the top. This is the exact title you need. Select it and click Insert Images in the bottom right corner to add it to your canvas. Then change the width only to 5.25″. Design Space™ automatically resizes the height to the correct proportions as long as the lock icon above the size is locked.

4. Duplicate the rectangle and title.

Step 4

To create this pocket card, you will need several images to slice and contour. To duplicate both the rectangle and the title, select the image and then click Duplicate in the Layers panel. The second rectangle will serve as the base for your pocket card.

5. Without ungrouping, use the Slice tool on one of your title images.

Step 5

To slice the title, select it and then click “Slice” in the bottom right corner. This will help you create one of the layers on your pocket card. After slicing your first title, you’ll have several pieces of text remaining. The screenshot shows you the three different pieces that will be made after you use slice on this first title image.

6. Delete one of the extra titles.

Delete of one of the extra titles by selecting the red X. Make sure you leave the image with the words “THE” and “BEGINS” on your canvas.

7. Contour the remaining sliced title.

Step 7

With the remaining title image from your slice, you will use Contour to hide the word “BEGINS” from the image to leave only the word “Adventure.” Select it and then click Contour in the bottom right corner. Then click on all the pieces you want to hide to get ride of the word “BEGINS.” This will leave only the word “Adventure” that you’ll use in the next step.

8. Use Slice to cut title into one rectangle.

Step 8

To cut the “Adventure” title into one of the rectangles, click and drag your mouse over the banner and text to highlight both images. This will allow the Slice option to become available in the bottom right corner. Click Slice.

9. Delete extra text and contour the title.

Step 9

Both titles from slicing into your rectangle can be deleted by selecting the text and clicking the red X. You won’t need to use them to build your pocket card. To allow parts of the solid cardstock to show beneath title you sliced in this pocket card, use the Contour tool to remove some of the extra cuts. Select the sliced title and click Contour. Then select some of the inside pieces to remove, like the inside cut of the letters “A,” “d,” and “u.” You can also contour part of the curly line at the beginning and the end of the word.

10. Ungroup the duplicate title image and delete extra pieces.

Step 10

To create Juniper layer of this title, select the duplicate title and click Ungroup in the layers panel. Then delete the purple “Adventure BEGINS” image by select the red X.

11. Assign colors to your project pieces.

Step 11a

Assigning colors to your pieces is an optional step, but it can help you see what color of cardstock you need when you cut your project. You can also color each piece and move them around to visually get a sense for how your project pieces will look when they come together, like we did below.

Step 11b

12. Cut your project and assemble your pocket card!

When you’re ready, click the green Make It button in the top right corner and follow the prompts. We used light Toffee cardstock for the pocket card base and Toffee cardstock for the 4″ x 6″ sliced title card. We used Juniper cardstock for the title piece with the solid banner. Finish it off with New England Ivy cardstock for the separate title pieces, “THE” and “BEGINS” and then “Adventure”. After your pieces are cut, it’s easy to assemble the layers for this title on your pocket card. Just remember that the final layer will be your two New England Ivy pieces, and you’ll attach them to your card over the Juniper cardstock.

If you liked the title we made today but it doesn’t match your photos, that’s an easy fix. You can use the tools in Design Space to create other pocket cards in any color scheme. You’d follow the same steps and then simply choose other colors of cardstock when you cut the project. The creative options in Design Space can be used for your 12″ x 12″ scrapbook pages, but they also allow you to design projects for other types of memory keeping like pocket cards. Enjoy!

Then, ungroup the banner by selecting the image and clicking UnGroup in the Layers panel in the top right. This will leave one solid banner and one outline banner.

4. Duplicate the solid banner.

To create a second solid banner, duplicate the image by selecting it and then clicking Duplicate in the Layers panel.

5. Insert first line of text, “LET THE,” and resize.

Select the banner outline, and then click Arrange in the Tools panel. Select Move To Front to make sure the outline will move over the top of the solid piece, rather than behind it. If your text needs to be adjusted, move or rotate as needed, and then check placement again.

8. Use Slice to cut text into the banner.

Both lines of text can be deleted by selecting the text and clicking the red x.

10. Repeat with second line of text, “SUNSHINE IN.”

Keep in mind, if you feel like the text is too tight on the banner, you can adjust the height to make it slightly smaller.

11. Cut your project!

Keep in mind our cardstock is two-toned. One side has the full strength color, and the other side is a lighter hue. Use the light side of Lagoon for the banner with text and the dark side of Lagoon for the banner outline. If you like, you can also assign colors to your project pieces before cutting the project. This makes it easy to see what cardstock to use as you cut. When you’re ready, click the green Make It button in the top right corner and follow the prompts. Then, insert your cardstock, and you’ll have all the pieces you need to create this project on your own!

You can use this same process to create your own titles from banners found in the Artistry collection. With so many options, you can customize your titles to match any scrapbooking project! And don’t forget to take advantage of this month’s National Scrapbooking Month special with the Postcard Perfect paper packet and other coordinating products to make a page just like ours.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™

One of the easiest tools to use in Cricut Design Space™ is Contour. We love how this feature allows you to hide portions of an image and remove unwanted cut lines. This gives you even more flexibility and customization with your Close To My Heart Cricut® collections. Shapes that have patterns or cuts inside them can be turned into solid images!

18-0071-blog-page

We created this scrapbook page using one flower image from the Artistry Cricut® Collection. With the Contour feature, we took the striped flower and created a solid flower. By varying the size and colors of both flower shapes, we ended up with the delightful page you see here. Today we are going to walk you through the steps of creating your own contoured flowers in Design Space to make a similar creation!

In order to use the same shapes that we did in this project, you’ll need to own the Cricut® Artistry and Flower Market collections. You will also need to have a Cricut® machine that is Design Space compatible (any of the Explore models or the new Maker) to link your collections to your account. (If you do not know how to do this, click here.)

As you follow the outlined steps below, keep in mind that this shows you how to use features in Design Space from a desktop or laptop computer. If you use the app on a mobile device, the buttons and tools will be located in slightly different places on your screen.

1. Sign in to Cricut Design Space™ at design.cricut.com.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnLog in with your Cricut ID and password, and then select the green New Project button in the top right corner.

2. Insert the flower image.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnTo add this specific flower image from the Artistry collection to your canvas, click Images on the left. Then search for image #M40FD89 in the search box at the top. This will give you the exact flower you need for the project. Just select it and click Insert Images to add it to your canvas.

3. Ungroup the flower image.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnWhen an image like this one has multiple layers, you first need to ungroup the image before contouring. Ungroup the flower by selecting the image and then clicking UnGroup in the Layers panel on the right.

4. Delete the dark purple flower.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnTo create this page, you only need one of the flowers in this image. Now that you’ve ungrouped the image, delete the dark purple flower by clicking the red x at the top left corner of the image.

5. Duplicate the flower.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnYou will use solid and striped flowers on this page. This means you’ll need both the original flower and the one you are going to contour on your canvas. Duplicate the lined flower by selecting Duplicate in the Layers panel.

6. Contour the flower to create a solid image.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnTo contour, select one of the striped flowers and then click Contour in the bottom right corner of the Layers panel. A pop-up box will appear on your screen, just like the screenshot above. In this instance, you’ll select Hide All Contours in the bottom right corner of the pop-up box. This lets you hide all the contours without having to click on each one individually. If you only wanted to contour part of your image, you could select only the portions you wanted to hide. After hiding the contours, you now have a solid flower shape with no interior cuts.

7. Duplicate and resize the flowers.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnDuplicate and resize flowers for your page as desired. To resize the flowers like we did, select the image and change the height under Size. We used flowers at heights of 1.5″, 1.75″, and 2.25″. Leave the size “locked” so that when you change the height, it will automatically resize the width, keeping the shape proportions the same.

8. Assign the flowers colors.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnAssigning colors to your flowers will make it much easier when it’s time to cut the project with your Cricut® machine. Design Space will group all images in the same color together for cutting. You can easily group shapes together under different colors using the Color Sync panel, like you see in the screenshot above.

9. Insert the banner image.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnThis page also uses the Contour feature to make a solid banner for a small sentiment. Insert the small banner by clicking Images and searching for #M416E8C.

10. Ungroup and contour the banner.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnAfter the image is on your canvas, ungroup the banner, just like you did with the flower. Then select the banner and click Contour in the Layers panel. For this image, select only the individual cuts you want to hide, instead of selecting “Hide All Contours.” Click on the X and O portions of the banner and you’ll see them change color, indicating that they will no longer be cut out of the banner shape.

11. Resize and assign colors to the banners.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnThe banner images on our page are a height of 1.5″. Resize the banners just like you did with the flowers, leaving the size lock in place. Enter 1.5 for the height, and the width will automatically resize with the correct proportions. Then assign colors to each banner piece for cutting.

12. Insert the leaves image, then duplicate and resize them.

Contouring Shapes in Cricut Design Space™ #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #designspace #design #space #flower #leaves #floral #shapes #cutting #flowermarket #artistry #collection #diy #howto #tutorial #learnAdd finishing touches by including some leaves from the Cricut® Flower Market collection. Add the image by searching for #MD37FB8. Then duplicate and resize the leaf image as desired. We used leaves at heights of 1″ and 1.5″.

13. Add circles for flower centers.

There are two ways to add the small circles to your project. You can search for and add image #M417CAC, ungroup the image, and delete the “EEK!” circle, which will leave you with a solid circle. Resize it to 0.5″, duplicate, and assign a color. The second option is to insert a circle from the Shapes option on the left side of your screen. Select the circle, and a solid circle will be added to your canvas.

14. Cut your project!

When you’re ready, click the green Make It button in the top right corner and follow the prompts. Your Cricut® machine will group cuts together according to the colors you assigned. Just insert your cardstock and you’ll have all the pieces you need to create this project on your own!

Now, you’ve successfully contoured a flower and a banner from only two images in the Cricut® Artistry collection. Using contouring, you can create solid shapes, like we did with the flowers and banner, to create dimension and variety in your projects. There are so many creative ways you can use this feature to adjust the shapes in your Close To My Heart Cricut® collections to get even more options in your crafting! Enjoy!

Working with Fonts in Cricut Design Space™

When you peruse any of the Close To My Heart catalogs, it is easy to see that we love using our exclusive Cricut® collections to add to our scrapbooking, cardmaking, and papercrafting artwork. Our Cricut® collections are purposefully designed with a wide variety of shapes and styles so you can always find just what you need to complete any project. Additionally, most of our collections come with their very own unique font.

Today, we want to go over how easy it is to work with these fonts in Cricut Design Space™ by sharing step-by-step instructions to recreate this card from the Annual Inspirations idea book:

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

Before getting started, there are a few things you will need to make this card, other than the paper. First, if you wish to use the same fonts we did here, you must own both the Flower Market and Artistry Cricut® collections. You will also need to have a Cricut® machine that is Design Space compatible (any of the Explore models or the new Maker) to link your collections to your account. (If you do not know how to do this, click here.)

As you follow the outlined steps below, keep in mind that we are showing you how to work in Design Space using a desktop or laptop computer. If you prefer to use the available app on a mobile device, the buttons and tools will be located in slightly different places on your screen.

Now, let’s get to it!

1.  Sign in to Cricut Design Space™ at design.cricut.com.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

Log in with your Cricut ID and password, and then select the green New Project button in the top right corner.

2.  Insert text by clicking Text on the left side of your screen.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

For this project, we need to add text for each line separately. Let’s begin by typing “Be” in the text box.

3.  Change fonts by clicking on Fonts in the Text Edit bar.

You’ll see all font options, but we want to use the font in the Artistry collection to recreate our card. To locate this font, type “Artistry” in the Search Fonts box. Select this font, and then adjust the font height in the Text Edit bar to 1.75″.

4.  Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to create the “YOU” and “tiful” text in your project.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

Don’t forget to change the font and the font height for each. Change “YOU” to the Flower Market font with a height of 1″. Change “tiful” to the Artistry font with a height of 1.25″. You can see where to change the font height in the screenshot above.

5. Next, arrange the text.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

Move the text pieces around to create the look that you see on the card. You’ll want adjust the letter spacing in the Text Edit bar for “YOU” to make it to overlap with “Be” and “tiful”. The example above shows how we arranged the text, with the letter spacing on “YOU” changed to 1.9.

6.  Weld your text together to create one group of text instead of three separate pieces.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

To use the weld tool, make sure each line of your text overlaps. You’ll also need to make sure you have selected all three text pieces. Select all the pieces by clicking on the top left of the text and drag across to highlight all three lines. Next, click Weld in the bottom right corner, in the Layers panel.

7.  To create the piece for your card front, insert a square shape using the “Shapes” option on the left side.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

Resize the shape to a 3.25″ x 6″ rectangle.

8.  Move your sentiment behind the rectangle.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

You’ll still be able to see the outline box for the text to make sure it’s centered. Hold down the “shift” button on your keyboard and select the rectangle. Once both the text and the rectangle are selected, click Slice in the bottom right corner, next to Weld.

9.  You should now have three separate pieces.

Working with Fonts in Design Space #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #design #space #font #fonts #beyoutiful #beautiful #card

You’ll see the slice results on the left in the Layers panel. Just move your pieces around to view each one individually. You can delete the two separate text pieces since you won’t need these in your project.

10.  All that’s left is to cut your project!

Click the green Make It button in the top right corner and follow the prompts. To create the same look as the example from Annual Inspirations, just add a solid piece of cardstock behind your cut Cricut® piece.

That’s it! You’ve now successfully sliced and welded fonts to make a “BeYOUtiful” card! You can use this same concept to create other unique card sentiments or scrapbooking titles. If you want to make this project again, be sure to save it before moving on to your next creation!

We’re taking our month-long papercrafting celebration to the other corner of the world today—g’day Australia!!

Some of you may be unaware, but the Close To My Heart family is made up of quite a large group of Aussies, and today, 26 January (AEST), is Australia Day in the land down under! While the holiday has evolved over time and is celebrated differently than it has been in the past, and as we reflect on our love for our mates, we want to celebrate all things Australian with—drum roll please—another giveaway!

We’ll start by choosing six lucky winners, each of whom will win one of these Australian themed stamparoonies…

 

AND, for our grand prize…

So how do you win? It takes 2 steps. One, make sure you are a subscriber of this blog, promising you’ll pop around.

Winners will be chosen randomly by 10 a.m. AEST on 27 January (that’s 4 p.m. MST on January 26). No worries, you do not have to be Australian to win!

Take it easy and have a good one!

Large-scale Inspiration in Small Spaces

One of the perks of having Convention in Salt Lake City this year was the tour of our home office. Those who got to visit our place kept telling us how inspiring it must be to work in such a gorgeous and innovative environment. Well folks, the truth is, it is! If you tuned in to our Facebook Live yesterday, you got an up-close look at the space where Close To My Heart artists create all of the memory keeping and papercrafting artwork you love. It’s a craft room dream come true. We want to show you how to take some of the ideas we used to create this atmosphere back to your own crafting nook so you, too, can be inspired!

The first step in this process is to find what actually inspires you. Look for something great that someone else has made and make it your own. Once you’ve chosen something you like, take a moment to really consider it. What is it at its core? As you think about it, is there anything that clues you into how it was made?

Large Scale Inspiration #ctmh #closetomyheart #papercrafting #paperhearts #hearts #mobile #inspiration #inspiringcreativity #creativityTake a peak into the Close To My Heart foyer. One of the first things visitors see when they walk into our building is this impressive mobile. Created from hundreds of paper hearts in various sizes and shades of pink, this is a breathtaking paper creation.

hearts-317

Because most of us don’t have fifty-foot ceilings to fit such a large décor piece, use this mobile as a starting point. Simplify the project. You can make a small version of this mobile or a banner of hearts that fits any space, including above a desk. The idea is the same—create a decorative piece with different shades of paper hearts, but with smaller and fewer pieces.

Let’s take a look inside our art studio.

Here is that same quote found on the wall of our art studio. With a small frame and a handful of small paper flowers, you can showcase something that makes you feel creative while using little space.

You might not have a large space for working on your favorite projects, but you can use what’s around you to beautify your creative space in small ways. Large-scale sayings, banners, and other papercrating décor can be simplified to fit anywhere. You can see how all the parts and pieces came together to fill this desk space with elements of the papercrafting you saw in a much larger scale at the home office.

Mini Cricut® Flowers

When you think about using Cricut® flowers on your scrapbooking, you probably think of something like this…

Cricut® flowers #closetomyheart #ctmh #cricut #cricutflowermarket #flowers #scrapbooking

…a large flower cluster in a corner, or maybe a wreath. This certainly is a beautiful way to embellish a page, but have you ever thought about making your Cricut® flowers itty bitty?

Mini Cricut® flowers #closetomyheart #ctmh #cricut #cricutflowermarket #flowers #scrapbooking

While large flowers create a dramatic focal point, mini-sized flowers add a certain daintiness to your artwork.

Mini Cricut® flowers #closetomyheart #ctmh #cricut #cricutflowermarket #flowers #scrapbooking

To create the littlest flowers on this page, we actually used the inside pieces from the other daisies on the page. Aren’t they so cute and sweet? 🙂

Mini Cricut® flowers #closetomyheart #ctmh #cricut #cricutflowermarket #flowers #cards

Mini Cricut®-cut flowers also work really well on cards. You can use them to frame your stamping, and when you use layered images like these, you get lots of extra dimension.

Mini Cricut® flowers #closetomyheart #ctmh #cricut #cricutflowermarket #flowers #scrapbooking

Another great thing about mini flowers is that you have more flexibility for arranging them on your page. We love the idea of creating custom borders with these little flowers, like you see on the page above. It creates such a beautiful accent and draws the eye in to the photos.

Basic Cricut® Shapes for Backgrounds

Looking for a way to spice up your scrapbook pages? We’ve got just the thing! All you need is a Cricut® machine and a little imagination for this technique.

Use your Cricut® machine to create unique backgrounds for you scrapbook pages! #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #tutorial #howto #easy #scrapbooking #ideas

First, find a basic Cricut® shape that you like: square, heart, diamond, etc. Next, cut out the shape over and over again on a piece of solid cardstock (we recommend using Cricut Design Space™ so you can more easily control where the shapes cut). Remove the shapes from the piece of cardstock, and then back the empty spaces with different pieces of patterned paper. As you can see from the example above, we repeated paper patterns across the shapes to add a sense of continuity to the page.

If you don’t have Cricut Design Space™, you can still get this effect by cutting multiple versions of the same image, but you could also cut the shapes out of patterned paper and attach them to a piece of cardstock. There are lots of different spins on this technique!

For example…

Use your Cricut® machine to create unique backgrounds for you scrapbook pages! #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #tutorial #howto #easy #scrapbooking #ideas

…try backing the shapes with photos! It’s a lot easier than trying to cut your photos on a Cricut® machine because you can slide them around behind the cardstock until they are framed just the way you like.

Use your Cricut® machine to create unique backgrounds for you scrapbook pages! #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #tutorial #howto #easy #scrapbooking #ideas

Another spin on this technique is to change up the size of your shapes. Smaller shapes give you a lot more little shape windows to work with. This page also shows how much you can play around with dimension as well.

First, we backed some of the empty spaces with patterned paper and left others empty. Next, we used 3-D foam tape to attach the White Daisy cardstock piece with all of our heart shapes cut out of it. The Bashful background shows through the empty hearts and creates a bit of a shadow. To finish off the look, we took some of the hearts that were cut out and embossed them with gold powder. We then used them to “fill in” a few of the heart-shaped windows with more 3-D foam tape to make them really pop. See how many possibilities there are when you start playing around with your Cricut® shapes?

We used circles and hearts for our artwork, but what Cricut® shapes would you try with this technique? Tell us in the comments below! 🙂

Mini Summertime Adventure Album

Mini summertime adventure album #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #cricutartbooking #cricutyouarehere #ctmhjack #camping #cabin #vacationCan you believe summer is already coming to a close? Oh how time flies when you’re having fun! Though it may be hard to wave farewell to days lounging by the pool, visiting family, and traveling to beautiful destinations, you can keep those summertime memories alive and well by creating a mini album. Summertime doesn’t have to end!

We created this camping-themed album with two of our exclusive Cricut® collections: Artbooking and You Are Here.

The Artbooking collection includes a variety of tabbed, hole-punched pages designed especially for creating mini albums like this one! To decorate those pages, we turned to the You Are Here collection, which is our newest Cricut® collection. This collection includes designs to help you document your adventures both near and far away from home. Combine these two collections together, and you’ve got everything you need to create any number of mini summertime adventure albums!

You’ll see lots of the Jack paper packet in our mini album. With its tree, woodgrain, and flannel-inspired plaid patterns, these papers are perfect for documenting your outdoor adventures. Just remember, it’s only available until the end of the month while supplies last, so grab yours while you can!

If these pages inspire you to make an album of your own, feel free to refer to the recipe at the bottom of this post to see which products we used, as well as more details about the Cricut® cuts.
