Had a Good Scrapping Weekend!

Last weekend I went to a scrapping retreat.  It sure was good to get with my friends to scrap and have a good time!  Here are just a few layouts I completed:

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge on this layout.  I used the instructions for the CTMH Elementals Workshop On The Go and adapted it to fit my needs.  Everything on this layout is CTMH.

For this layout, all carstock is Bazzill.  I used my Gypsy and created the title with the Don Juan Cricut cartridge and welded the letters together.  I can't remember what size I cut them.  The deer was cut from the Give A Hoot Cricut cartridge at a height of 5".

Believe it or not, I didn't use my Cricut at all on this layout!  The paper is from a paper pack I bought from HSN, the buttons are from the 3 Birds Cute As A Button kit, the butterflies are Dazzles stickers and the tag for the title is CTMH.

All cardstock on this layout is Bazzill.  I believe the title was cut from the Don Juan Cricut cartridge, but don't hold me to that since it was 1 in the morning when I did this.  The buttons are from the 3 Birds Cute As A Button kit.

My First Gatefold Card

My grandson had his birthday party with his friends today, so I made him another card.  (I made the card I gave him on his birthday for my DT project.)  Here is the card:

Front of card

Inside of card

The base (green) cardstock and inside patterned cardstock is from the A Boy's Universe paper pack by The Paper Studio.  All other cardstock used is Bazzill.  I cut the robot from the Robotz Cricut cartridge at a height of 5 1/2 inches, and the number for was cut from the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge (built into the E2) at a height of 1 1/2 inches.  The Happy Birthday stamp is Stampin Up! and the ribbon is from my stash.

I also made my own envelope using the Martha Stewart scoring board and cardstock from the A Boy's Universe paper pack.  Here is the envelope:

I'm please with the way this turned out, and it was so much fun to make!

Weekend Getaway Was Productive!

This past weekend I went on a scrapbooking weekend retreat, and boy did I get a lot done!  My daughter wanted to give a mini album to my grandson's paternal grandma and great-grandma for Christmas, so I completed both of them at the retreat.  I did the same album for both.  All my daughter has to do is add the journaling.  Here are the pages:

I used the following cartridges:  B is for Boy Lite, Nate's ABCs, Creative Memories Stork's Delivery and Doodlecharms.  I don't know the sizes of the cuts because I had to actually put the cartridge in the Cricut to cut since I used the Cricut available at the retreat.  I had to really stop to think how do use it since I always use my Gypsy at home.
