Okay, so enough about all of that!! My friend, Jen (who has an AWESOME blog called 'Musings of a Crafty Mom'), has been guiding me through this Guest Designer Spot, and I would like to thank her for helping me, answering all of my questions, and encouraging me on a regular basis... And thank you, Cooking With Cricut, for introducing me to Jen almost a year ago!! :)
**This post is picture-heavy as I have FOUR projects to show you using the Creative Memories Traveler Cricut Cartridge (available for purchase HERE)... On my first 12x24 (12x12-times-two) layout, every single cut (including the photo mats) was done using the Traveler Cricut Cartridge!! Gotta love a cartridge that has it all!! TONS of images and TWO FULL fonts WITH a shadow feature!! WOW!!
Creative Memories Cheerful Power Palette). By adhering only the edges, I can slide my photos right in and under the paper strip easily. :)
Creative Memories Rotary Trimmer and decorative blade)...
Lasting Memories Layout Challenges too (the challenge was to try something NEW)!! For those of you who have followed me for a while, you might also notice that I don't usually use 'accent' embellishments next to my photos (the sunglasses at a corner, the flip flops at a corner, and the sun at a corner)... Again, something NEW I was trying to break out of my usual pattern of doing things. The large life preserver spread out over two pages is a pretty common technique for me, so while that doesn't count as 'new' - it sure did make it FUN!! :)
Whew!! That was a LOT of pictures!! :) After finishing this layout, I really wanted to make a card with a few of the images that I also liked, but couldn't fit on this layout (let's face it, I could have made 100 cards, cuz I love ALL the images on this cartridge!!)...
Splashtastic Summer" Stamp Art Set from K Andrew Designs.
