Sweet Baby Layout

Well, you already know that I have the cutest grand baby ever, and I just can't get enough pictures of her.  And more importantly, I am happy to preserve those memories!  

I used a few of Close to my Heart's new products on this page...
*New Basics Fundamental Paper Pack (grey paper) Z3353
*Block Alphabet Thin Cuts Z3386 
*Sweet Baby Stamp & Thin cuts Z3376
*Bashful cardstock (paper of the year) X5941 and Bashful Glitter Paper Z3360
*Z3344 Basic Tags Thin Cuts
*Bashful Pearls Z3369
*Better Together Complements

Wow!  I didn't realize all the cool new products I used on this layout.  I love how it turned out.  I cut the elephant out using the thin cut, then stamped him on our new Pebble cardstock...stamped his ear again, cut it out and popped it up.  Used a grey colored pencil to outline the elephant.  THEN...here is the cool part.  I stamped the nails and cheek of the elephant, cut them out and added them here.   How cute it that!

All I have to do is have my daughter in law journal on it and it is done!

Close to my Heart You Are Here Cricut Cartridge

I know, I know...I have been posting all month about this cartridge...BUT...isn't it amazing!  These are some of the shapes I have been playing with.  I LOVE the National Park badges...

The flag and "Hello", USA & "Nebraska" are from Close to my Heart's Hello USA cartridge.  Now to put these on layouts.

A Trip to the Zoo with Grandma!

The other day I took my granddaughter to the zoo.  I picked the hottest day I could find...but we really didn't care AND, it was easier to justify sharing an ice cream cone.  LOL  

We had to stop at the giraffe house and see Sophia's plaque on the wall.  (that is the larger picture on the left side)  I also added a flip flap to the right side with the rest of the pictures of her messy ice cream face.  Gotta love that face!  I had to add those, but I didn't want to make another page.  I love using flip flaps to get your pictures on without adding more layouts!  

We had a great time.  AND, I got to use the new Here You Are Cricut Cartridge AGAIN!  LOL
I also used some of our new paper packs..Close to my Heart's new Basics & Enchantment Fundamentals paper pack.

Get out there and make your memories!

Beach Layout

Can you tell that I am HOOKED on the Close to my Heart You Are Here Cricut Cartridge?  I am having so much fun creating with it.

So here is a layout I was inspired by from our convention.  I changed it a bit and recreated it.  It was so fun to make.  And I added a bit of my clear shimmer pen (even though you can't see that) but it makes the image sparkle.  

It's time to get your cartridge and start creating.

Family Tree

Ever wanted to create your family tree?  Now you can!  Close to my Heart's New You are Here Cricut Cartridge  has one!
I used "fit to page" to do this one...I wanted it as big as I could get it.

So fun.  Now I need to fill in the blanks and get it in my scrapbook!

Use the Close to my Heart Hello USA Cricut Cartridge for Your Travels

Do you travel? Do you like to keep track of where you have been? I do and I have always wanted one of those big maps that people have on the back of their RV's. BUT, I really don't want to stick something to the back of our RV...I don't even know that I want one that big...but I finally found the solution...

The Close to my Heart Cricut Cartridge - Hello USA. This cartridge has all the US states, their flowers, slogans and names along with the flag and other icons. It is a digital only cartridge.

So what I did here was cut out the background of the US with white cardstock. Then I cut the outline in black. Now this will give you all the state too...but I wanted them in a different color. So I cut it out with Lagoon cardstock. So what I will do, whenever we spend the night in a state, I will add it to my map. I have the state pieces in an envelope so I can add them.


I put magnets on the back and put it on the fridge in our Motorhome. HOW COOL IS THAT! So excited about this. What will you do with this cartridge? I can't wait to see!
