Another Elegant Edges Project

Yet another project using this awesome and versatile cart. called Elegant Edges from Provocraft. While viewing a UT video of a similiar mini album, I decided to see what my EE had to offer and it rose to the occasion. Using the cartridge and my Expression ( a personal diecutting machine) I found a similiar shape as the one I saw on the UT video. It was perfect. I cut the shape out at 51/2 inches using the frame and shadow features found on this cart. I chose CS from various designs that I have in my paper stash and Viola! A mini that's elegant and handy to show off. So get your hand on this Cricut cart. You won't be disappointed.

It's not puzzling how versatile the Cricut cartridges can be. I created this little mini using the My Community cricut cartridge. It has puzzle feature so I used lightweight chipboard and my Cricut Expression to help me design this. You can see more pages on my YouTube Channel: FayRaiDesigns, or click on the button on the right hand side of this page. It is "my new channel". TFL

Rolodex-Style Mini

Who cannot say that inspiration is everywhere. I was recently inspired by Kathryn (Life on the Scrap Beach) who created a Rolodex-style mini album that featured her family memories. As soon as I saw the project, I knew I had to make one. So I did and I enjoyed every minute of it. Here's the project:
