Bits and Pieces Cartridge Review and the end #31

One thing I really like about having the subscription in Design Space, is trying some of the new releases. The only ones not included in the subscription are the licensed cartridges.  Recently, the Bits and Pieces was released and when I looked at it, I thought it was something I wouldn't need to purchase.  So I decided to take another look and see what it had to offer and I was really surprised at the envelopes, cards, and tags along with images that were included.  Today I am just showing you a few examples of what I found.  This first one is called an envelope and insert.  I made this about a 5 x 7 size and I really love how easy it was.

When I did the insert, I just copied and made it a little smaller and in white and just cut the top of it off and attached to the main card as seen in the picture below.  I found this cute little flower on the cartridge and added it to the front.  These would make super invitations or just thank you cards.
Next I did a tag and the bow envelope.  The tag design reminded me of animal print and I will be using this on a zoo page to put the date.  I could have made it bigger and wrote on it.  The envelope was made fun with the bow designed on it.  These were super easy.
The last example is also a tag.  I made this one a little larger and will journal on it.  I just added some ribbon on the ends, but so many possibilities.  Check out this cartridge today because I really think you will like it.  I know I found so many things I would use that it would be worth it to purchase. 
Now for my layout #31. I used the Cricut Explore and svg files from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I have really enjoyed doing this challenge and got so much accomplished and very glad I did.  I am a person when I start something, I finish.  I love the Facebook group and if you like to scrapbook, check it out.  It is called Scrapbook Layouts.  Now to get started reorganizing this room and I will be back on Tuesday for Layout Tuesday so have a fabulous Super Bowl Weekend!!!

Layout #30

Well gang, just one more to go and I will have completed the challenge. I am proud that I made it and got lots of scrapping done! I will be glad to take a couple days and get this room reorganized and find the floor. Way too many paper scraps in here and I looked and it is going down the steps too...messy me!  This layout was completed with my Cricut Explore and I used svg files from Kadoodlebug Designs.  I love all their adorable designs so be sure to check them out.  Join me tomorrow with my last layout and a cartridge review which I am not sure of at the moment, but something newer.  Thanks for joining me today.

Product Review and Layout # 29

Hello and welcome to my Thursday daily project. Last week I showed you some cool acrylic products from my friends at Punch Place Plus. Today I want to show you another item that I love.
This is the 2 inch round disc and you can just let your imagination take over and create with this fun piece.  Be sure to check out the other sizes and colors these come in too.  Today I have used the white glitter one.  I loved working with this disc and hope you like the few little items I am sharing today.

This is probably my favorite and will be wearing this to cheer on my favorite team.  I used the glitter vinyl on it and just made the UK with my Cricut Explore.  I also made the earrings to match.  I used the paw last week in some of my designs.
I made my friend Emily a key chain in her school colors.  I covered the disc with orange vinyl and just cut the panther head.  I put her name on the other side of it.
Well I had to make myself a key chain in my favorite color of red and love the design.  Just added my intials and I am ready to go.  Just click on the side bar and go straight to the Punch Place Plus site. 

Now I am sharing my #29 layout.  I used the Cricut Explore and the cartridges Creative Cards, Cricut Font, and Mickey and Friends

Layout #28 and the end is near!

Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing layout #28. Just a few more and I will have completed the month long challenge!!! I am really glad I did it too because I have made a big dent in both of the granddaughters albums.  Love spending more time in my craftroom and if we get some snow like they are predicting this weekend, I will be having more fun!  This layout was created with Cricut Explore and Miss Kate Cuttables svg files.  I cut the title at 7.5 inches, cake at 5.5 inches, and balloons at 2 inches.  I got the paper at Hobby Lobby and the cardstock was from CTMH.  I will be here on Thursday sharing another layout, but also will show you what I created using a plain 2 inch acrylic disc from my friends at Punch Place Plus.

Layout Tuesday with Disney

Hello and welcome to Layout Tuesday. Today my layout is made using the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge.  I believe when Cricut made theses cartridges, they had in mind they would be doing Print then Cut feature.  I normally do not use it, because I love pieces them together, but sometimes you just have to use it.  For this layout, it was a must.  Those little eyes are buggers and so to keep myself from cursing, I gave in! lol  I did cut the title which I cut at 8 inches, added some stickles for some bling.  Sorry picture is dark, but best I could do with cloudy snowy day.  I used the Print then Cut feature on Ariel who is cut at 5.5 inches, Sebastien cut at 4 inches and little Flounder cut at 3.5 inches.  Added a little glitz to make them pop.  I have a cheap HP printer that came with my laptop and it does fine.  The paper is some I had in my stash from Best Creations and I thought it was perfect for these Disney on Ice pictures.  I used the Cricut Explore of course.  This is also layout #27.
