Creating a mini using the Cricut

Just recently I designed and crafted a mini album(I'm always in mini album mode- really- always)using my Gypsy and the Cricut.  The whole story is told and shown on my YouTube channel(FayraiDesigns). So go over there and see and leave me some YouTube love(subscribe that is) Here are some sneak peeps before you get there.

A bit of Scrapbooking Humor

I saw this little cartoon on Miss Misi's bloag and I thought it was too funny.

All Chalked Up

Recently I acquired some chalkboard cardstock (and at a reduced price that met my budget).  At first when this ingenious scrapbook item came out, I wasn't so impressed.  I mean how many projects would I use with it.  Well, I was willing to see since it was very affordable.  So here is one of my projects.  I took an unfinished picture frame and covered it with the chalkboard paper and then added some extras.  I think it turned out great. What do you think?

Things I love About You

What is a layout without the things you love to scrap with?  I love butterflies and flowers, so I used them in this layout.  This is my granddaughter who loves to be with me in my Craftroom.  The rolled flowers were cut on the Cricut using the Art Philosophy cartridge and the butterflies were created using the Martha Stewart punch.  I even used some metallic tape to punch some put.  The polaroid photo mats were also cut with the Cricut from a Gypsy file that another crafter so graciously shared.  The glittered paper is from my stash and the design is a negative cut image. I hope you like it.

Using Up my Stash

Here's another mini!  I just love these little mini treasures.  While sitting and surfing the Tube(YouTube) I came up with this project that has as its base, envelopes.  I designed the envies on my Gypsy(Cricut design tool).  I used the Just Because Cricut cartridge and resized the envelopes so that they would serve as a good base for creating and adding pictures. I used so many tools from my stash in this mini. Check out my Youtube channel (FayraiDesigns) for a more detailed description.  I used the Black Currant paper stack by DCWV. Thanks for stopping by.
