I am a new Design Team Member to Scrappy EMT!  I'm very excited to be a member of this design team! I have so many crafty ideas at the moment! I just hope I don't run out of ideas!!
For today's project were were asked to use our favorite cartridge and to show off our own style.  I'm not sure if I captured everything I love to do but I do like how my project turned out!

I love to scrapbook and have been scrapbooking for about 15 years.  My pages have gotten better over the years! I look back now at old scrapbooks and think wow not sure If I would sticker it up as much now as I did then!  I love to make gifts for friends and co-workers!  I use my Cricut a lot, I also love paper, glitter, beads, flowers and chalks! I look for new ideas constantly!

I used Forever Young which is my favorite cartridge along with Gypsy Wanderings and my gypsy.  I used some patterned paper from DCWV and Stampin Up! I also used grey thread and some grey/blue beads, and some sheer ribbon.

I cut my girl out of the Forever Young cartridge at 5".  I welded my letters together before cutting them out on my gypsy. I really love this feature!  They were cut a 2".  I strung the beads on to the thread to make a necklace. I really like the glittter paper I used for the dress! I used the ribbon around  her waist. I tried to keep the layout simple because I really don't want to take anything away from the pictures of my daughter in her dress!

I made this scrapbook page for my daughter who will be going to her Winter Formal next month.
Thanks for stopping by I hope you like my project!!  ~Christina~

Friday-- Disney Scrapbook page

My Cricut Craft Room Design Team Hi everyone!! I know it has been awhile since I posted, I've had some personal things going on. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! I am a new full time Design team member for My Cricut Craft Room.  I am very excited to share projects with you during this up coming year!
For this project I used Pooh & Friends and Gypsy Wanderings font cartridges, stampin up papers and stickles, and ribbon from my craft supplies.  I cut both Pooh's out at 4" The lettering I cut out at 2 1/2".  After I layered the pooh I used stickles on his outfit to make it stand out.  This was my first attempt at a layering project.  It was done awhile ago and given to a friend of mine who had a baby.  I have gotten much better at layering as you will see in some of my other projects!  I really like to make scrapbook pages, you will probably see a lot of that from me! I will shake it up a bit with other projects too!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will return to see some of my other projects!             ~Christina~
