I'm back to scrapbook layouts! This layout is one I did for my dh, it's of him, our youngest and his best friend from childhood. I made a journal tag that's hidden in this pocket. I'm going to beg him tonight to journal on it...it will be a first for him! The design is from SVGCuts.com, it's from their Memory Garden Collection. The tree is from Just Because Cards. The title is cut with SCAL. All patterened paper is DCWV and the cardstock is Core'dinations. I also put a little bling on it with the Tulip Glam it Up. Enjoy and God bless! And thank God for good friends!

|This is the last card for the swap! Yeah! Mission accomplished, it feels so good to get done! For this card, I used Paper Tray Ink paper and ribbon. The horse is actually the "unicorn" from the Cricut Paisley cartridge. I gave the glitter paper another try. This time I used Zip Dry glue to make the horse stick to it! The title is actually printed on the paper. I like to print titles on paper to make it look like I want it if I don't have a stamp that suits my purpose. There are so many really nice, free fonts available on the internet. My favorite site is http://www.fontspace.com/.|

For this card I used basic squares to make a cake with a slice cut out of it. I use Zip Dry glue to attach some seed beads for the sprinkles. I also used the Cuttlebug embossing folder "Happy Birthday". Oh! And the beautiful blue paper is some my wonderful crafting soul mate, Stephanie, gave me!

Okay, this card was a learning experience that I want to share! The glitter paper I used is Colorbox and it is beautiful BUT a pain. There was glitter all over my cricut mat and I had a difficult time sticking anything to it. I tried the tape gun because it usually works wonderfully, fell off! So I used 3M glue and I had to hold pressure on it until it dried, about a minute. So... for the card, I used paper from DCWV (patterened paper), PaperTreyInk (solid paper), and the beautiful background paper is some more cool stuff my friend Stephanie got me! The cupcake is cut from Hello Kitty Greetings. I simply printed to greeting from the computer and dressed it up with a couple of brads! This is a trick I like if I don't have a stamp that says exactly what I need!

That is what my dear sweet daughter wants to know! I have been consumed with making cards lately and probably have only made 5 scrapbook layouts this summer. I signed up for a few card swaps, so as soon as I complete my obligation, I'll start scrapbooking again! I think she's excited to see herself in a layout on my blog!

This is a card I made for a card swap on the Cricut message board. I am addicted to card make lately! I guess It's a good thing since I joined a swap that I have to make 60 cards for before Oct. 1st! This card is made with DCWV printed paper and PaperTreyInk solid cardstock. I used PaperTreyInk stamps too.
