Birthday Layout

I finally used my Close To My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge and made this birthday layout of my grandson Benjamin's first birthday.

Here are close ups of the two pages.

I cut everything at 11", and all cardstock is Bazzill. I used the layout that is shown on page 86 of the handbook, and here is a picture of the handbook page.

I really please that this cartridge makes it so easy to complete a 12 x 12 layout if you are in a hurry or are having a creative block.

If you are interested in purchasing this item, you can visit my Close To My Heart website and order.

Thanks for stopping by!

First Day of Kindergarten Sign

My grandson Ethan's first day of kindergarten is tomorrow, and I made this sign for him to hold when I take his picture.

This is a 12" x 12" sign, so I will use it for the first page of his grade school scrapbook. All cardstock used is Bazzill. I used the Locker Talk Cricut cartridge to cut "First Day of School" at 4 1/2" and to cdut "kindergarten" at 4". I used the Disney Micky Font Cricut cartridge to cut the date at 1 3/4".

Here are my Gypsy screens showing the cuts.

I can't wait to get Ethan's picture holding the sign!
