Close To My Heart Autumn Album Retreat -- Just Chillin' Layout

This layout makes me SMILE.

Last year the kids got to go sledding on the hill behind our house a lot.

This year it has been way too cold for them to go out much.

They had SNOW much fun...sorry I had to...LOL.

The Cricut Artbooking makes it so easy to put beautiful layouts together in no time.

Layering the snowflakes just adds depth and dimension to an already beautiful and fun layout.

Tips & Techniques for This Layout: 
* Create entire layout from one key
* Cut overlay and use the pieces to accent the page, or save for other projects
* Pop Cricut titles to show shadow and open space above the base
* Place a piece of cardstock behind the title to add a pop of color
* Create visual interest with shaped photo frames
* Adhere washi tape to cardstock for solid color
* Randomly stamp tone on tone for subtle detail
* Cut a 3 photo frame as designed on cartridge and trim off extra frames to fit to the project
