The purchase was a win/win situation. I sold some of my stamp sets and craft "gadgets" that I no longer use and was able to get enough to purchase the Cricut!
My first project were these scrapbook pages from a trip to see the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. Just kind of basic.... a couple of leaves, the tree and frame, etc.
Trying out different features like shadow and different sizing I next made this bulletin board. The frame is covered with patterned scrapbook paper. The large flower in the upper left corner is stamped with words like imagine, moments, remember.
Being inspired by my daughter-in-law's upcoming baby shower my next project was the cover for this small photo album. My thought is to put pictures of the mommy-to-be along with some ultra sound photos leaving a couple of pages at the end for newborn photos.
I used New Arrival for this and will also be making some decoration for the shower with it.
I have the perfect pack of paper that my son and daughter-in-law gave me for Mother's Day too!
It's by Me & My Big Ideas called Baby Boy. So cute!
