September Blog Hop (Stamp of Month Hop is just below)

Welcome to our September Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Sarah’s Blog, then you are on the right path.  If you are just starting here, simply follow the trail until you have visited all of the blogs in the hop.  You will know you reached the end when you wind up back here.  This month we have decided to go with the Consultant’s Choice.

Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Bundle is the product I am introducing.  I made this adorable mini album "All About Me" at the CTMH Convention this past July. This album is made of chipboard and comes with the Artiste Bundle, but you can also purchase it separately.  This way, you can make as many as you want.

My album is covered with Avonlea Papers which were cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and I love how it turned out.  I created a page by page video that you can view to see the complete album.

  1. What a great job, I love this mini album. I just got my Cricut Artiste Collection and this is one of the projects I can't wait to try. Thanks!

  2. this came out really great, I love your mini album! Too often (okay, almost always) we scrap and craft for everyone else and everyone else's pictures. I REALLY had a lot of fun doing a little album on/about ME !!
    Wonderful video, TFS
