Artbooking In August Week 4 - Photo Box

Wow....this is our last Monday in August so that means this is my last post for the Artbooking in August blog hop!  It's been fun and I hope you have been inspired by all of our consultant's fantastic artwork!

Each Monday in August we were tasked with creating one of each of the following (in any order):
1. Card
2. Layout
3. Mini Album
4. Home Decor or gift item (My feature project today!)
If you missed the previous Artbooking Monday posts, you can click on any of the above links and it will take you to my project.

The hop is one big circle so when you get back to me you will have completed the hop!  If you came from Cassandra Bennett's blog you are on the right track!   Just look for the next blog link at the bottom of my post and it will take you to the next blog.

I decided to create a keepsake box for my last project.

 I covered a My Creations Card Box (Z1647) with Sarita Paper (X7171B).   I added an Outdoor Denim overlay using the Snapshot Mini Album Overlay on page 40.  This box measures 6 3/8"x 2 1/8" x 4 3/4" so I set the dial size at 6".  I used REAL DIAL SIZE when I cut the banners, "classified" and the stamped images.  The stampset I used is one of the sets that is included in the Artbooking Cricut Collection.

Here is a view from the top:

I used the Sarita Textiles (Z1885) to create my rosette accent for the box and centered it with an etched wooden shape from the Sarita Assortment (Z1873).   I also used a heart shape from this assortment on the front of my box.

I hope you have enjoyed the artwork we have shared from the Artbooking Cricut Collection.  If you are inspired to order this collection for your own, please contact your consultant or you may order from my website at

Now it's time to hop over the FABULOUS Adeline Brille's blog!  Be sure to leave her some love for coordinating this hop!
