two new layouts

I just wanted to thank my new blog followers for signing up.  I'm so thankful to have found a way to share my work and to gain ideas from other bloggers....

Here are two new layouts that I was working on over the past few days.  I have another baby album to work on for a baby boy soon to join the world and this is the start of many layouts to come.  Again, the new Mommy-to-be is not a scrapbooker so I am trying to make it super easy by keeping all the photo mats the right size for a standard 4 X 6 photo.


This layout was created using three cartridges
Create A Critter (one of my favs)
B is for Boy
Pooh and Friends (sun/clouds/butterflies/grass)

When I made the train I used the train cars from B is for Boy but cut off the top of the car.  This gave me the look I was trying to achieve.

The train track is just strips of black paper

This layout was created using Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge
the campfire is from Camp Out
The palm tree is from Life is a Beach (I think) and I stretched it out using my gypsy

Winnie The Pooh Baby Album

So, I made this Winnie The Pooh scrapbook for my cousin who is expecting her first baby.  She is going with a Winnie theme and I thought this would be a perfect handmade gift to present her.  She is not a scrapbooker so I had to make sure it would be easy for her to just glue her pictures in and do a little journaling.  I decided to post this as I found there to be very little Winnie the Pooh layouts online to use as a guide.  I found a few and even "copied" one or two a if you're reading this and the page looks familiar......thanks for your ideas!  Almost every image was cut from either Pooh Font or Pooh and Friends cricut cartridges.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I did making them!

Craft Nook challenge #1

Ok, so the ladies at the Craft Nook has challenged us to make a project using the following three colours, Yellow, Orange and Teal.  Here is the card I came up with.  Quick and simple, the yellow frame is from the Wild Card cricut cartridge, a few prima flowers and some teal grosgrain ribbon and voila!

UPDATE......Although by random draw.....I won the very first Craft Nook Blog Challenge!!!  Thanks to Lillian and Linda for hosting the challenge and I look forward to using all of the new card making supplies that you are presenting me as the prize!
