If you have just started following my blog I would like to tell you about Theme Day Thursday and Cartridge exploration. Each day of the week, we make items with either a challenge, theme or a cartridge. Today's theme is Birthdays.
For more great Birthday projects please check out
My Cricut Craft Room.
I decided that this theme was perfect for finally scrapbooking my hubby's birthday pics, so I created a one page layout. The inspiration for this layout came from Scrapbooks Etc. August 2011 edition page 84.
I started with my back ground cardstock and layered a second smaller cardstock on top.
Using the Birthday Bash Cartridge I cut the birthday hat out at 4" and using the Monkey Key Phrase I cut the cake out at 4.5"
I cut several circles out of patterned paper using the Creative Memories Circle cutters and gathered all my supplies including the Martha Stewart Loopy Border Punch.
Using my I Rock by Imaginesce I added bling around the large cirle with the cake in it.
Other items used include buttons and floss and alphabet stickers from StorytellersClub and Rusty Pickle. I could have cut letters out but wanted to use up some of my stickers.
And here it is the finished layout. I hope you find some inspiration from my layout and can't wait to read your comments. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and please be sure to become a follower. It means so much to me. Hugs.
