I’ve been trying to keep a list of the Cricut cartridges that I think would be useful in my scrapbooking rather than buying and hoping I find a place to use it. I recently found three of the ones on my list from the same seller at a great price. They were all still new in package too…an added bonus when you use the Cricut Craft Room. Have you had any good hauls recently?
I did it! I finally broke down and ordered myself a scraprack. I’ve been looking at one for six months, or more, and with the free shipping…well…I caved.
I got the basic rack with three different types of pages. I chose the double XL vertical, the fabulous four and the perfect five. I assume that will get me started well since I already have everything sorted. I obviously don’t have any pictures yet, but I’ll be sure to post some when I do.
Hubby had to work today so I didn’t get to do much scrapping, but I made an embellishment for my nephew’s birthday package and his card. I’ll try to get a blog up tomorrow after the party so you can see. I think they came out really cute.
I also have three new videos coming up for you too. I just have to carve out some editing time. Stay tuned!
The April 15th challenge for About A Boy was to use your boys artwork on a scrapbook page. Michael had recently brought some Johnny Appleseed projects home so it was the perfect time for me to try this.
I usually make scrapbook pages using a variety of techniques, but I decided to approach this one differently. Since it was his artwork I wanted it to look like he has created the page as well. I reached WAAAYYY back in my childhood and created the page like I would have when I was in elementary school. I don’t think you can tell from the picture, but it even has the owl hole in the tree that I think we all drew when we were younger.
I wouldn’t have had fancy embellishments as a youngster so I used my cricut to cut basic shapes. It ended up turning out just like I wanted it too.
Michael’s original artwork that was the inspiration for my apple tree.
My friend La-Vie, of C’est La-Vie Designs Unlimited, LLC recently celebrated her birthday, and in honor of her special day she’s doing a giveaway on her blog.
While that’s exciting in itself, I’m honored to say she mentioned my blog twice! Please go wish her a happy birthday, subscribe to her blog, and join in on the fun.
The April 1st challenge for About A Boy (link on the sidebar) was to use chevrons in your design – easy right!? WRONG! I went through my entire stash and found I had nothing. Apparently I’ve never used a chevron before.
I went looking in my idea books and on web pages for inspiration, but everything was so busy for my style of scrapping. I then stumbled upon a picture that had nothing to do with chevrons and noticed the rick rack, and that was the inspiration for the following page.
I knew I wanted the chevron to be subtle when I started so this was perfect for that.
