Artbooking meets Florentine!!

New and exciting meets well loved and retired!
I created this layout with Florentine paper that I had savored from a previous Idea Book.  The layout design is Performance from Close To My Heart's How-To-Book Magic which is a great layout design.  I simply replaced two of the creative elements with pieces that I cut with the new Artbooking cartridge and then I replaced a standard cut with an overlay also cut from the Artbooking cartridge.  

The Colonial White spaces are spaces for pictures: a vertical 5" x 7" on the left page and either a horizontal 5"x 7" picture on the right side or two vertical 5" x 3 1/2" pictures.  The journaling space is the Creme' Brule piece on the right page.  This page can also be flipped to the back side for a more neutral design if desired.

To see enlarged images of the layouts simply click on the pictures and they will open in a larger size in a new window.

A great feature on the cartridge are words/titles that are welded together.  I love the fonts and the words!  This "Absolutely" just called out to me!  What a fun, and creative title!

The overlays are designed on an 11" inch scale and come in two forms an 11" x 11" and a 5 1/2" x 11" BUT the grand part is that they both can also be altered as I did here so that they can be incorporated in a layout or a card.

These are the three pieces that were cut with the Artbooking cartridge.

All of the pieces (Cricut Cut and non-Cricut pieces) are ink distressed in Cocoa ink.

This kit is available to purchase.  The Artbooking pieces have been pre-cut for you.  Step by step detailed instructions, a color copy of the layout and a cutting guide are included in the kit.  Mocha's may be added for added detail and dimension if desired.  The cost of the kit is:  $10.00.  Add $3.00 if you would like a package of the Mocha's as well.  Shipping if applicable is $8.00 but can be combined with additional In Sassiness Designs Class Kits to save on shipping cost.  To order this kit, e-mail me at: or by using the PayPal link below.
