Pumpkin Picking Page 1

Ashley has been teething so much this week that I only was able to do one page. The other page is started, but will have to wait.

I did this page using a lot of different Cartridges. The title was done on the Design Studio as a welded title. I will post the cut file when I get a chance. It's saved on my mom's computer. The Font is Pooh Font, Sunflower from Stretch your Imagination, Pumpkins from Pooh and Friends, Sign from Walk in My Garden, font for the title is Pooh Font.

The Kid is done on the new Everyday Paper dolls. Pumpkin is from Everyday as well. The fence is on the original Paper Dolls. The wheel barrel, I think was on Walk in my garden. I used stickle, stardust on the pumpkins. The sunflower I tried a Tim Holtz gold stickle. It came out a little fast, so it's still drying.

Page 2 to come probably on Scott's next day off. Ashley has her top tooth almost all the way down, her bottom two are the ones giving her so much trouble. Poor thing, I wish their was more I could do.

Hello Kitty Invite made with Design Studio for Cricut

Using the Design Studio for Cricut I was able to make a Hello Kitty Invite for Ashley's party! I used the cricut cartridges Hello Kitty Greetings ( Kitty, presents) George for the base rectangle, and Stretch your Imagination for the Balloon. The invitation writing was done on word with a paper sizing of (3.8 x 3). The sizing that I created in design studio will fit into a Standard No. 10 envelope (sizing 4 1/8 x 9 1/2 in).

Here is the Cut file to create your own Hello Kitty Invite. Designed by Yours Truly :)

Dino-Mite Layout

Wanted to try out my new Cricut E. I cut all the dinosaurs, volcano, grass and palms from Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge. The Title and the jungle leaf are cut with Life's A Beach. The dinosaur border is done with the EK success border punch. :)

This is from our trip to Dino Mountain at the Wild Animal Park! Matt had tons of fun and he actually told me where to put my dinosaurs on this layout. That is why the pterodactyl is smooshed in by the picture of the pterodactyl. He wants me to change out the picture on the bottom right to a stegosaurus picture to match the dino cut out. Ahhh!

Best Anniversary Gift Ever (besides my iphone)!

It was our 6th anniversary today! Last anniversary I was in the hospital on bedrest. Scott went to Michaels (insert shock here) and got me a Pink Cricut all by himself! I am so happy! I had the little cricut, but now I have the large one! I want to scrapbook so bad now! Glad he's on vacation for a week.

Elephant Odyssey San Diego Zoo

We recently visited the new Elephant Odyssey at the zoo. I think I saw this layout in a magazine and scraplifted. I love this paper. I thought it went really well with the colors of the pictures. I used PSP to put in the journalling to let people know what some of the things were. For example the elephant collar. kinda looked strange lol. It is a truly awesome place to go and see the elephants. Going to include some of the pictures in my posting.

Star Wars Clone Wars

Matthew loves Star Wars, so I was REALLY excited when they came out with the Star Wars paper. Even more excited that it was CLONE WARS. Matthew's last birthday was a Star Wars Clone Wars party and he even wore his old Halloween Costume. I can't wait to scrap the other pictures!

The base paper is a Silver Foil. Unfortunately in the photos you can see finger prints, however in person you can't see it. The Yoda and Clone Trooper are done in Chipboard made from the same company that came out with the SW Paper. :)

The Clone Trooper is not part of the layout lol.
