I have been meaning to try using the print and cut feature on my Silhouette, but had been nervous about how it would work so I put it off. I saw this cute set of fall cards at the Silhouette Store though and so wanted to use them for a layout...so glad I did.

After I has all my chipboard layered with the papers I selected, I punched my holes using the Cinch so I would know where to place everything on the album pages.
|Grandmas hand written recipes fit in just right.|
I had a huge stack of envelopes and I decided to use these as the recipe holders. I just tucked the flaps inside so recipes could be placed inside. I cut scalloped circles for each label page, also off Art Philosophy. I cut all the label words and matching ovals using From My Kitchen.
The final touches were for the front cover. I loved the "Fabulous Fall" cut from 3 Birds on Parade so I added it to the front, plus a touch of brown ribbon. I am super pr
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my new book. I am really happy with it. Have a great weekend.
*If you are visiting from My Cricut Craft Room I am sad to report that I am no longer part of the team. One of the companies that MCCR is working with says her DT members can not be working with the new Cricut FANatics blog so I have been removed form the team. I wish it had been different, but it was out of my hands as I was not asked about this. I hope those who visit me from MCCR will continue to stop by and see what I am working on. I wish MCCR nothing but success with her new ventures!

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely weekend. This weekend I have been working on building up my stash of lunch box cards for my daughter. Since I have been trying to use my list of carts that I have never used before I decided yesterday to pull our my Pagoda cartridge and see what I could do. Here is what I created for her.
CARTS LEFT TO USE:
50 States, Block Party, B is for Boy, Campin' Critters, Chore Chart, Christmas, Destinations, Father's Day, Greek Alphabet (CCR), Hoot 'n' Holler, Mr. Frosty (Imagine), Out of Character, Pack Your Bags, Pagoda, Paper Trimmings, Pooh & Friends, Preserves, Savory, Sesame Street Friends, Sophisticated, Summer in Paris, Superman, Thanksgiving Table Decor (CCR), Tie the Knot, When It's Cold Outside
I cut everything for these cards using my Pagoda cart. First was this fun flower image. I really liked how simple it and thought it would be fun to add some colorful gems to make it even more special.

Recently one of my former students got selected to be the student director. Each year at the high school she attends one student gets asked to pick a show, cut it down to a shorter version, cast and direct the show. I was so excited for her and very pleased to attend the show. She selected the show Art by Yasmina Reza. Here is the card I made for her.
I cut a simple square card as well as a white layer, which I slashed like the script cover. For the letters I used the Pooh Font Set to cut the title. I did not realize until I was finished I had mixed the colors, but I was pleased with the results and so was Daniela. Thanks much for stopping by today.

Welcome to Theme Day Thursday with My Cricut Craft Room. Today is International Chore day and we were asked to make something for someones lunch. For me this was an easy idea and my daughter loves receiving homemade notes in her lunch box so I try to have several on hand to use.
Next, came this fun globe cut also on Sesame Street Friends. I cut this in blue and used a Chalk Collection writer pen in gray to cover the base of the globe before placing it on a green card base so i got the whole look of the globe. I added the white heart and title by hand.
For my final card I selected this cute flower pot cut off Pooh and Friends. (I love finding cute cuts on carts when you did not know they were there.) I loved how simple it looked on the front so I added my sentiment from the Life's a Garden set by Pink By Design on the inside.
My Cricut Craft Room and see the other fun projects the Design team has made for today.

NO SUCH LUCK!
The line that night started off moving well, but than it just stopped with no explanation. Many people got out of the line and decided not to wait, but we had to see her and we were only there one day. We decided to make the most of it and enjoy our line experience with all the other Rapunzel's waiting.
