Tropical Vacation

Hi, Crafters!
It's time for a new challenge over at Bitten By the Bug 2.
Remember to always include a 
Cricut cartridge cut or Cricut digital library cut 
on your project plus the current theme.

This week's theme:
Tropical Vacation or Tropical Flowers



I love creating scrapbook layouts! Cricut Design Space makes it so easy.

Cricut Design Space Cut File for this Layout HERE.

Cricut textured cardstock and Close To My Heart cardstock.

Notebook lines, Date, Arrow in triangle all from the July 2016 Stamp of the Month set, From the Notebook. I love stamp of the month sets. You can get them for $5 when you spend $50. They are only available for that one month, so it's an easy way to schedule your CTMH orders monthly and get the current SOTM set for $5!

"Place Photo Here" from a stamp set I won in 2016 with the Straight to the Top incentive for new Consultants.


Cricut Cartridges Used:
Teddy Bear Parade for the vacation bears
Luau for Aloha title and trees


Here's a funny story....
I forgot to put the shades in this Teddy Bear's sunglasses.
LOL
But that's okay, just looks like he's wearing regular glasses. Hopefully the sun isn't blinding him too much without his shades.


She is just precious in her hula skirt!
Have you ever been to Hawaii? I haven't. Probably won't ever go, but I thought I could use this scrapbook layout for any vacation we go on.


Thank you so much for visiting with me today.
We'd love you to come join us at Bitten by the Bug 2 in this week's challenge.

Before you go, check out this month's Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month!
Spend $50 and get this set for just $5. Love a good bargain. This stamp set only available this month so don't put off ordering to get it.

Check out these projects from Close To My Heart (not my artwork)

Happy Father's Day

I am so tickled with this layout.
I rarely do heat embossing, but I did for the sentiment on this one. I don't know why I don't heat emboss more. It's not hard, just not in my normal craft making routine.


The argyle papers at the top and bottom are actually solid cardstock that was stamped. Isn't that awesome? I love how that turned out.

For this layout, I cut out all of the pieces according to the workshop instructions that creates 3 layouts and 4 card designs. The photo arrangement for the first layout was redesigned to accommodate 5 photos plus the heat embossed sentiment.

This layout was created using Close To My Heart supplies.
The Dad is Rad kit has a printable workshop guide to create
3 layouts and 4 cards. I love the torn papers at the top 
of 2 of the layouts. Such a nice affect.
