Pauls First Day of College

This is simple layout the I made yesterday for my youngest sons first day of college. He is a Freshman at Youngstown State University studying Computer Information Systems. My oldest son is a Junior in the same field. I am so very proud of both of them. I'm working on my other sons new page for this year also. The Paper I used regular black and white cardstock, the freshman cardstock I purchased in a pack from Big Lots from "DCWV", it also had paper for junior that I'll be using for my other son. The Cricut cartridges used were Base Camp and Locker Talk. The books diecut I also purchased from Big Lots in a pack from "Remember When". I used pop dots to make the YSU and the diecuts stand out.

Once upon a time

I was just looking through my children's old scrapbooks and wanted to share a then pic. This was Easter 1992. I used stencils, the original Sizzix, punches, a scrapbook computer program and deco-edged scissors. Its fun so look back. So pull out those old books and gather up some new ideas or just to look to see how your scrapbooking skills have grown.

From Sketch to Layout using the Cricut Design Studio

This is a quick layout that I made using the Cricut Design Studio to first make a sketch of the page, then put it in cut form to use my Cricut Create to cut out the diecuts needed. I just love this idea and have found it very helpful. The cartridges used were: Paper Doll Dress Up, All Mixed Up, and George and Basic Shape. The ghost child and shoes were cut at 4 1/2", the lettering was cut at 1" in a 2X11 rectangle, the picture mats are 4X6, the journaling spot is 3X3 1/2, and the small ghost is cut at 3 1/2". The title was made using the stencil made by cutting out the letters then filling in the spaces (the white is cut out and the black is solid).
