How about a card?

A card you say? Yes, I am the typical double layout scrapper, but....I did manage to do a simple card for one of my creative xpress (http://www.creativexpress.com/) assignments. For this particular assignment I was challenged to do a card demonstrating symmetrical balance.


I made this card using the sentiment and the frame from the "Wild Card" cricut cartridge. If you don't have that cartridge you really need to take a look at it. It is awesome. And it makes making cards super easy, especially for the non-card maker. Anyway, I used lots of cardstock again and just a smidge of patterned paper. Products used were: Basic Grey patterned paper, Bazzill bling cardstock, Doodlebug sugar coated brads and trim and of course Cricut. Hope you like it.

Woohoo......

it is National Scrapbook Day! Yes, this great hobby has a day each year to celebrate. Unfortunately I am unable to participate in it's festivities. My life is all about the kid's right now and there is much preparation for Jake's first communion tomorrow. With that said I thought I would post one of my favorite layouts right now. It is almost made completely of cardstock. I find that I have to force myself to use patterned paper sometimes. It is my favorite layout because it reminds me of how fun it is to watch a toddler grow up.

Products used were Bazzill, American Craft, KI Memories and Cricut Sesame Street Font cart.

Cookie Monsters

Have you ever challenged yourself to do a layout with a product that you don't normally use? Well for February's assignment for Creative Xpress (http://www.creativexpress.com/) I was challenged to do two projects featuring the Sesame Street Font cartridge. I wasn't quite sure how they would turn out, but the font turned out to be really cute! It has four different fonts on this cartridge.

Products used were Prism and Bazzill cardstocks, Scenic route, Doodlebug trim and of course Cricut Sesame Street Font cartridge. Enjoy.
