If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at If you came from Michelle's of then you are in the right place!

I chose to do a project with our new Kraft 8 x 8 binder, one of my favourite new products in the Autumn Winter Idea Book:

Our Frosted paper pack is another of my favourites, I love the soft colours and of course, the snowflakes!  Sooo pretty!
Don't you just love those rosettes!?  The ruby coloured ones were made using the Artbooking Cartridge rolled flower cut and our quilling tool.  The blush and colonial white felt flowers are part of our Frosted Assortment.  And notice the scallop border cut with our new punch!

 The title was cut with Art Philosophy three times and layered on top of each other to resemble chipboard.  I then "flooded" the top of the title with lots of Liquid Glass. (you will want to let that dry for quite a while!)  I love the glossy look of the title!  The leaves were cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.

 My binder was looking a little empty, so I then decided to cut some 8 x 8 pages and overlays using our new "Artbooking" cartridge.  I have not really finished embellishing them yet, and don't have all the photo mats on them, but wanted to include them just to show you some of the cuts possible with this fantastic cartridge!

 These pictures make the cardstock look really blue, but it is Twilight, along with Cashmere, Ruby, and Champagne.

Supplies used for this project:  X7175B Frosted Paper pack, Z1890 Frosted Assortment, Z1871 My Creations Kraft 3-ring Binder, Z1812 Sparkles Clear Flourishes, small, Z1752 Sparkles Clear Assortment, Z679 Liquid Glass, Ruby, New England Ivy, Cashmere, Twilight, Champagne cardstocks, Cashmere ink, D1795 Quilling Tool, Z1151 Foam Tape, Z553 Glue Pen, Z1851 Scallop Border Punch, Cricut Art Philosophy, Artiste, and Artbooking cartridges.  I also used a non-CTMH punch to punch the ruby snowflakes.
