This is actually a really old layout that I started ages ago & just got stuck on. I knew the colors I wanted to use, and had the paper ready to go, but as far as embellishments I was just STUCK. What do you call that? Scrapblocked? But then I got the Simply Charmed cartridge and was re-inspired! I had been looking for some whimsical tree paper or embellishments, but hadn't been able to find any I liked. I was looking for something like these from Picnik.
So when I got the Simply Charmed cricut cartridge at Joann's the other day, I immediately pulled out some of the American girl paper scraps I had left over from my daughter's birthday card and went to work! The result was this:
I also cut out the sunshine from the Simply Charmed cartridge.
I was really happy with the way this turned out. I can't wait to cut out more with the Simply Charmed cartridge. I'm also really happy that I finally used up some scraps! I think we should have a use-up-your-scraps week in the crafting world. Have you made anything lately using up your scraps? Leave me a comment with a link so I can check out your projects too!
