Creating with a Cricut Machine is an ongoing learning experience. Here I will share my card making and scrapbooking ideas and tips with others and hopefully help you with your own projects and designs for making handmade greeting cards. Join me as I learn the art of creating special homemade cards and scrapbooking layouts. Happy Cricuting!
Visit each week for a new homemade card and scrapbook layout.
Homemade Cards-A Special Touch
A Homemade Card, like ones I make with my Cricut Machine, gives recipients a special feeling, they know I planned ahead for their special occasion and took the time and care to create a greeting card just for them. I have sent out many of the cards featured in this blog and I get wonderful thank you's back, expressing how nice it was to receive a beautiful and homemade card.
Christmas Themed Cricut Scrapbook Layout-Thursday, May 26, 2011
Finally, the final page for this scrapbook which spans over four years. The theme is Christmas and I used some really nice heavy weight cardstock paper I bought at a scrapbooking supplies store. It comes in a pad of about 40 pieces of cardstock some "foiled" and embellished with rich, vibrant colors and textures.
I cut out the flourish patterns using my Cricut Cutting machine and coordinating heavy weight cardstock. The photos included in this scrapbooking idea were hand cut to sizes which I determined would fit on the 12" x 12" piece of background cardstock.
The background cardstock is beautiful and I think gave me the Christmas idea for it's purpose.
Now it's time to start a new scrapbook spanning more years of my daughter's growing years. Stay with me.
