My friend Noey and I met while scrapbooking. This is a photo from our last scrapmania together before she moved to California. *tear* We have tons of fun together and I can't wait until we can get together again :)
Details: The title was cut out using the Stone Script Cricut cartridge. The paper and bird are from a new line by My Mind's Eye.
Hubby and I made the birth announcements for our nephew Max. I love the way they turned out. I always keep cards and never know what to do with them. Then I saw this layout. What a great idea! I will just scrap the cards that are special to me.
Details: The title was cut out using the Calligraphy cricut cartridge. The felt shapes are from Making Memories' Animal Cracker line.
Luna hates playing dress up. That didn't stop me from dressing her in her elf best for Christmas. She hated every minute of it. She thought it best to give up and lay down and look pathetic. I still managed to get some photos.
Details: The paper is from Target's dollar aisle. The title is from Making Memories FaLaLa line.
Every year we go to the Austin Symphony's Christmas Sing-a-long. It is so much fun to sing all of your favorite Christmas songs. It really gets you into the Christmas spirit. This year we had both had dental work done earlier in the day. We were both in pain, but Christmas songs make you feel better.
Details: The paper is from Target's dollar isle. The title was cut out using the Cuttin' Up cricut cartridge.
This is the stationary that I made for my sister for Christmas. All of the stationary was made on A2 folded cards. All of the cards were hand stamped and then heat embossed. I think she really enjoyed receiving personalized stationary.

I bought this plain advent box last year at Target. This year I decided to decorate it using my new love, the Cricut.

It was a very dramatic fall this year in central Texas. We decided to get up in the wee hours to make it to this park before it fills up. During the fall it often closes within a couple hours of opening because there are too many people. It was beautiful and it smelled like fall. Something we don't really get in Austin.
Details: Words were cut out using the Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge. The paper is by Scenic Route as is the journaling block. The eyelets are by Making Memories.

I recently took a workshop at Archiver's. They gave us tons of papers, stickers, letters and ideas. This is the layout we made in class. As soon as I cam home I finished it by adding my photos and putting on a journaling block. I love this layout! I had been struggling with these photos for a couple of weeks.
Details: All items used in this layout are from the Scenic Route page kit.
We took a pie baking class at Whole Foods just in time for Thanksgiving.
Details: "with pie" was cut out using the Opposites Atract cricut cartridge. "Giving Thanks" and the turkey are embellishments by Jolee's. The green paper is Bazzill cardstock in Parakeet.
We decorated sugar cookies for Christmas. My husband always has to out do my sister and I's decorating, but we have tons of fun doing it.
Details: The background paper is from S.E.I.'s Glitzmas line. The words were cut out using the Cuttin' Up cricut cartridge.
This is a layout I made at Archiver's make and take weekend. I made the layout before I had photos to put on the pages. I finally had the perfect photos to complete the page.
Details: "Cooking class" was cut out using the Opposites Attract cricut cartridge. The green paper is Bazill cardstock in Peacock.
