Sarah has a jammed packed project post today. She worked with the School is Cool, Summer and Audrey collections for her projects.
I know it's still summer, but school will be starting soon and it has inspired me to create this layout of my little pre-schooler. School is Cool is perfect for all the back to school layouts. I used the Cricut Simply Charmed cartridge to cut the little pencil and the word notes.
While the School is Cool paper was out I created a few back to school cards too. In the School is Cool collection there is one sheet of paper divided into 4 mini 6x6 sheets. I cut these sheets out and they are the perfect size for making cards. Now all my cards are ready for my girls' first days back at school. I used the cricut Simply Charmed cartridge to cut the box of crayons.
Of course Audrey is perfect for all things girl! My sweet girl kept asking me to take her to get her hair cut. I kept putting it off because really I didn't want her growing up any faster! But I finally gave in. I think I was more nervous than she was! On this layout I used a paper piercer to poke holes around the patterned paper and then hand stitched using the holes I poked as a guide with embroidery floss. A little scotch tape helps hold down the floss on the back of the page. I used the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge for the poodle and Simply Charmed cartridge for the little pair of scissors.
Summer at the Carnival
For my card I punched a circle and handcut some rays for the sun.
Whew, I am worn out from all that creativity in those projects! Be sure to visit Sarah's blog also!!
