Scrapbook Friday-- using Purple!


Friday is one of my favorite days at My Cricut Craftroom!! It's Scrapbook Friday!! I love to make scrapbook pages!! I also love to see what kind of great scrapbook page ideas the rest of the design team has!!

Today I made an 8 x 8 scrapbook page.  I used a sheet of paper from DCWV the Crafty Stack, and some purple shiny paper from my stash and some patterned mulberry paper, gold stickles & a sentiment rub on.  I used the Fancy Frames and Sentimentals Cricut Cartridges.
I cut the butterfly out of the Sentimentals cartridge at 2 1/2".  I cut the shadow shapes first and traced it onto the mulberry paper.  I tried to cut the mulberry paper with the cricut.. Disaster!  So I scraped that idea.  Next I cut out the rest of the butterfly and stuck the mulberry paper wings onto the butterfly and added gold stickles to the body.  I cut the frame out at 3 1/2" and stuck it down, then added my rub on sentiment.

Hope you like how it turned out!  Please make sure to visit the other design team members blogs and see what great projects they have made!!  http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com
