Cricut Circle Blog Monthly Challenge

The challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog this month is to make a scrapbook layout about a milestone. Any type of milestone. I chose to do a layout about my son turning 5. I can't believe he's old enough for Kindergarten now. He starts in September. He was so excited to turn 5 it was unreal. I didn't put his picture on there yet, mainly because I'm trying to not post so many pictures of him on line anymore. But you can see where his picture will go easily enough. So here's my layout:

Products Used:
Echo Park Little Boy Collection Pack
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Vintage Photo
Baker's Twine(The Twinery): Mandarin
Cricut Expression
Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge
Sesame Street Font Cricut cartridge
Glimmer Mist(Tattered Angels): Creme de Cocoa
Ranger Stickles: Stardust
ATG
Foam Squares by 3M

I'll be back tomorrow with some better pictures when I can take some in the daylight, until then,

Happy Scrapping!

A Couple of Cards

I've been meaning to get these up here forever, but here's a couple of cards I made. Almost everything is CTMH products and most of it is from the Stella Workshop to go kit. :-)

I stamped this one once in Cocoa onto Colonial White cardstock, and then again in Lagoon on Lagoon cardstock and cut out the cushions. I love how it turned out!


This one I did with the Art Philosophy cartridge & stamps that come with it. I cut the images with my Cricut, adhered them together & then stamped the cupcake image on it. The Olive cupcakes are actually one cupcake that I cut in half to use on each side. The Lagoon cupcake is popped up with foam dimensionals. I made the candle by cutting a strip of Olive cardstock, stamping down it with one of the pattern stamps from the "Just for You" set and then adding a star(cut from Art Philosophy & stamped with one of the stamps that come with it) and added a little bling. "Happy Birthday" came with Art Philosophy too. 

Alright, off to play some more, 
Happy Scrapping,

EP NSD Challenge #4

So this layout is for the Echo Park NSD Challenge #4. We had to do a layout based on a sketch. I haven't scrapped an actual LO in a while so it took me way longer than it should have! Here's the sketch:

And here's my LO, I actually really liked the sketch so I kept all the elements other than swapping out the square picture for two 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ones that I matted on coordinating cardstock. I did add bling, just because I liked it. :-)

I originally didn't have the lighter letters in the title outlined, but they kind of disappeared into the journaling without it. It pulls out to show the rest of the journaling. 


And a close up of the blinged circles. :-) Gotta add a little sparkle, even on a boy's page. 

Now here's the funny thing. I did this entire layout with winter themed paper. That's right, winter. I used the Echo Park Wintertime collection kit. Love those papers, and the colors were great, so I went for it. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping!

EP NSD Challenge #3

So challenge #3 on the Echo Park Blog for NSD was to take one of the projects shown by their design team and use it as inspiration. I picked this very cute card by Kandis Smith. 

I love how it looks like a quilt. And the colors she chose are awesome, though I didn't use any of them other than brown, lol! Here's my take:


I used Echo Park Dots & Stripes Home Front. I used the 6 x 6 paper pad because I love the scaled down prints, they're great for cards. I added gems to the banner, and decided that I liked the gems on the corners of each square, it worked better with the prints I chose. 

Thanks for looking! 
Happy Scrapping!
