A layout using Gypsy Wanderings and Treat cup from Sweet Treats

I got a little busy this weekend a did two projects done. There are not too many pictures of my mother and I but I really liked this one of us from Christmas. The butterflies are from Gypsy Wanderings, the flourishes and beautiful are from Home Decor, top note is from Accent Essentials, and the font is from Winter Woodland.

A close up of the butterflies...

I also wanted to try one of these little treat bags from Sweet Treats. Plus I brought out the Cuttlebug
for embossing. Everything that I did this weekend was against the norm for me.

10 Reasons Why I Love You mini album

I took advantage of the time I had this weekend because of the snow to make this mini album for my one and only. To give you a little background- he and I met and dated for a couple of years through college, we reconnected 15 years later and realized that we were each other's one true love. I wanted to make him this book to let him know how very much I love him.

I used some mini file folders that I bought at the Dollar Tree (all of the patterns are actually cut from them.) I brought out my old trusty white signo pen, and the font that I used is CK Ali's handwriting.

Summer Fun

I have been wanting to do a layout for some time now- but always felt like I HAD to use my Cricut to get it done. So I decided not to limit myself to just my Cricut. I only used the Cricut for the sun which is from Doodlecharms and the topnote shape from Accent Essentials. I also used my Threading Waters punch and Thickers that I had bought a ton of from Big Lots when they had them. The hearts are brads that my friend, Cindy on the Cricut message board sent to me. I also hadn't been doing layouts because I did not have a printer and don't like to journal in my own handwriting. I like to use the Becky Higgins font for my journaling and since I finally got the printer hooked up I may do more scrapping. Thanks for stopping by and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
