Costa Rica Scrapbook pages

 My husband and I took a trip to Costa Rica in December 2010.  Here are just a few pages that I have been working on from that trip.  I have used multiple Cricut Cartridges on these pages.

Never-ending Birthday Card

I saw this Never-ending card on Dawns Stampin Thoughts, (a Stampin' Up demonstrators blog I frequent) I fell in love with the card.  Well the way it folds and works so this is my take on the card.  I had a friend ask me to make her grand-daughter a birthday card using this style, and this is it.  I really like the way it turned out.  I used all Stampin' Up papers, inks, markers, and stamps.

Imagine Bigfoot

I wanted to play with my Imagine today, so I decided I was going to use the new Campin' Critters cartridge.  I chose to make Big-foot and the snow scene, well, because of the weather outside.  So I chose to print the colors onto white paper and then cut them out, I wanted to see how well the Imagine did all of this.  I think it worked really great.  You couldn't really see Big-foot's eyes so I chose to give him some black rhinestone eyes.  I also applied just a little bit of light gray chalk under his boots.  Love the way it turned out.  I did recut the brown main color on Big-foot and the shadow layer, because the colors that I thought were going to be perfect were way to light.  That was my only issue I had with the colors on the Imagine, the colors print slightly different than they look on the screen.  I used foam pop dots on the shadow of both Big-foot and the scene just to give some dimension.

Back to the Basics

A birthday layout, using the George Cartridge, it was the first cartridge I got because it came with my baby bug.  I cut the Birthday Blessings and the shadow blackout of the word.  I also cut the balloons and the brackets from the same cartridge.  I used Stampin' Up paper for all. And then some silver decorative trim to make the strings for the balloons.

You're My Cup of tea

You're my cup of tea.  All images made on the Imagine, including the blue pattern paper. Images were printed and cut at 2.5 inches, the blue paper was from a 12 x 12 sheet printed from the Imagine.  The red paper is from a scrap I had I embossed using the Tim Holtz checker board embossing folder.  I used some chocolate chip ink to ink the edges and parts of the red paper.

Cricut Circle Blog Challenge B.A.B.Y.

Here is my submission to this weeks Cricut Circle Blog Challenge.  I hope I am doing this correct, since this is my first time to submit to this blog.  The challenge was a B.A.B.Y (brad, aqua, butterfly, you) challenge.  Here is what I came up with.  This is about me in Costa Rica, it is very hard to come up with photos of yourself especially when you are the photographer in most cases.  I did have this one photo of me, my son grabbed my camera without my knowledge and took so many pictures of different things, and this one of me talking with friends.  I had to add more than just one photo so I picked out some other great photos of my trip.  Not only are my brads butterflies, but the bottom left picture is of a beautiful butterfly.  My aqua is in one of the butterflies as well as the paper (well at least I think it looks aqua).  My cuts are from Don Juan that is the title, and Cake Basics for the swirl on the bottom of the page. 
I also should add I just started this blog so that I can do more challenges and post my crafting adventures, I hope you join me along the way.
