Summer Mini Album with Cricut Artbooking

Summer Mini Album
As soon as I saw Artbooking and this particular album I knew I wanted to scrap our photos of Daytona Beach where we spent a beautiful morning before heading to the WDW resort for the CTMH convention.

It could not have been simpler or quicker to make. With Artbooking you set the dial size and everything matches up. All the overlays, embellishments, and photo mats. I didn't do any preplanning before creating this. I chose the Surf's Up paper pack and just started cutting all the elements for this album with just the two keys. I adhered all the overlays and pieces that need to go on first.
I had a stack of photos waiting so then I just matted some and started putting them on the pages. I did go back and choose a few extra embellishments and titles from other keys and cut to further embellish my album.
Within a matter of a few hours I had a complete album ready for my family to enjoy and reminisce about all the fun we had that morning.
