[Video] Preview Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge Summer Layout

The brand new Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge bundle has been released!  It makes creating layouts a snap!  

I have a video below showing how to create this two page layout quickly and easily.  I take you step by step so be sure to check it out.  This cartridge has some cool features!
Everything on the page is set to fit on the layout with one size.  So, for instance, I set the dial above to 11", using the relative size button (which is the default), and every image is automatically resized to fit on the layout.  I don't change the size again once I've set it at 11".
I used the Cuttlebug and the Divine Swirls folder on the wave to give it more texture and "wavy-ness".
The layout below is the right side and I show how to cut out these items in the video but I leave the assembly part out because the video was getting too long and it's so similar to the left side.
Check out the video below (click HERE if you can't see it):


Here's a quick close up of the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut bundle:

  6. The last time I placed our pics on a disc, for back up, was almost 2 years ago. I've gotten pretty bad about it. Plus, my computer is full of pictures. Scary thing to think if I lost all of those memories. Thanks for the review and a chance to win!

  13. Don't mind the speed ups in videos especially if it is just on the basic stuff. I backup my computer weekly so pictures are backed up. Once I have scrap booked the pictures put them on "my book" by western digital. Would love to have a picture keeper Will have to check it out.

  19. I back up once per month, but the back up device just sits here next to my computer. With this I could protect them by putting them in a fire safe box so I would never lose a picture. Thanks for the chance to win!

  23. That photo back up would be perfect for anyone! I do store all my pictures on an external hard drive and would like to store them on my hubby's computer too. Just to make sure we don't lose them. But one more place to have them would be great. You can never be to cautious.
    As for your videos I find they are perfect! I love to watch them and see what you do. Thank you so much for all you do.

  31. Love this cartridge! I don't mind speeding up the video. I "liked" Picture Keeper on Facebook. I don't have a back up of my photos. I have so many SD cards because I don't want to delete the pics. What if my computer crashes and I lose them all so I never delete the SD cards. The Picture Keeper would be perfect to store all my pictures. Would love to win this.

  37. I love this idea as I always worry about losing pictures and you would never have to worry at all with this product. You come up with the best ideas and products, and I look forward to the emails and blog every week. Thank you very much, we all appreciate you very much.

  38. I think speeding up is a fabulous idea. I don't really need to see each cut made.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Actually, my hubby bought me a drive (?) so I could backup things. My son showed me how.
    But I can't remember what to do with it. They also set up folders for my craft pics and family pics. They told me to separate them by month, I can't remember how to do that either. So they are all together in the same file.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I need to backup my photos more often than I do. We have an external hard drive that came with a scary warning about disconnecting a certain way or it will delete everything. TOO MUCH STRESS to use that device. I definitely would like to try out the Picture Keeper. And thank you Joy for warning us about emptying the trash first...who would have thought???

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh yes, and I have LIKED Picture Keeper on FB. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I did like picture keeper on FB. I am very interested in picture keeper as a way to back up my pictures. Too many of the other devices are not user friendly, and assume that you know what you are doing! i would love to try this!!!

  43. Love that layout Joy! The colors are so perfect for summer!

  44. Ohh, and sorry, I LIKE it when you speed up the video through the parts that we don't need to see every second of!

  45. I actually prefer having the video sped up, especially for things like cutting, gluing, etc.. Unless it's a new technique which requires more explanation of course.

  47. I love it when videos speed up and do things in fast motion, it gets too long if you have to watch every detail in normal speed.

  53. Keep speeding up the videos - it is easy to follow and I like that it doesn't come across that you are speaking to a kid by going slow. Love the giveaway and hope to win the Picture Keeper P4.

  63. Not sticking down the overlay completly makes complete sense. Saves time and glue. Short cuts for those days we wish we had 26 hours instead of 24;)

  69. I am thinking of using the diaper on the Artisite cartridge for a baby shower invitation. My question is: using the insert for the diaper how would I cut the insert so the shower information is centered. I want to type the information using specific fonts that I might have on my Mac.

    Thank You!
