My card base is 6X6. My light green card stock is core'dinations. My background paper is from Color Bok and is cut at 5 3/4 X 5 3/4. My image was cut from Baby Steps Cricut Cartridge at 2 1/2 using paper from my scrap box. I inked around my image with Memento Rich Cocoa. My It's A Boy ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. And last but not least my awesome image is from K Andrew's newest stamp set Of Mice & Lil Men; it was also stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.
For my second project today, I used Locker Talk Cricut Cartridge..........
I'm finally am getting back to scrapbooking and what better to scrapbook than my sweet Grandson, Brayden. Last year I had the privilege of going with him to the Zoo on his Kindergarten Field Trip. We had a great time. As you can see, I made a 2 page layout. Sorry I don't remember the name of this paper, I've been having it a while and it was taken out of the stack.
Kindergarten was cut at 3 1/2 and can be found on page 72 of the handbook. It's actually dark blue with light blue letters not white. Field Trip was cut at 4 inches and can be found on page 70. The stars were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, actually all my sentiments were stamped using that ink. All of my stamped images and sentiments are from various K Andrew Designs stamp sets. I cut two pieces 3 X 12 inch green paper and ran it through my paper crimper. My journal tag is a white piece of card stock and I punched the edges with a EK Success notebook punch; sorry not sure of the proper name.
My lunch sack and milk carton can be found on page 43 of the handbook and was cut at 2 1/2 inches. As you can see I added the second green crimped paper to this page. My bus was cut at 3 inches and can be found on page 70. Again I used sentiments from various K Andrew stamp sets....Food for Though, Crafty Friends, Spalsh-tastic Summer and Amazing You.
For my third project, I used From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge....... I am working on a recipe book with all the recipes I have collected from my family, friends and magazines too!
My recipe card is 8 1/2 X 11 and my green paper is from Recollections, South Beach. The rest of my paper is from my scrap box. I am trying desperately to use it up. This recipe is near and dear to my heart, my Aunt Jennie (my mom's sister) passed away about 7 years ago and she gave me this recipe when I first got married and moved out of my mom's house. Needless to say I could barely boil water. LOL But I could make a killer Lasagna thanks to her! My pasta sign was cut at 1 1/2 inches and layered. The fork was cut at 2 inches; the strainer/colander was cut at 1 3/4 inches, the pot was cut at 2 1/4 inches and the salt and pepper shakers were cut at 1 3/4 inches. All my images along with the the base and background paper were inked with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I stamped the word Yum from K Andrew's Coffee & Tea Tag along stamp set in Rich Cocoa ink.
