CKCB layouts

I only got 5 pages done with my first kit , but I really enjoyed doing the challenge. I think next time I put a kit together I will pick papers that go together better so it will be easier to work with. This is also my first time using the strips in my layouts, I think I did pretty good and it sure saves on paper. If you want to check out this challenge you can find it HERE

I have had some card candy laying around for a long time from a swap that I was in. I have been wanting to use them up and get them out of my way so I finally sat down and made some cards. They went really fast and were super easy to throw together and I am very happy with how they all turned out.

The background is made from Washi tape

Random pages

I really want to start Project Life but I have a lot of older photos to get scrapped. So I am challenging myself to get all those pictures scrapped before I can start Project Life. If I dont have it done by around the middle to the end of July I am still going to start PO just because I dont want to wait any longer lol. Challenging myself like that must be working because I am getting a lot of pages done, they are pretty simple but I also didnt stress over them like I usually do so I feel much happier about doing them.

First time using Washi tape on a page

Birthday card

I couldnt come up with an idea for a card for my brother so I looked through my booklet for the Cricut cart Just Because Cards. This cart made it really easy to whip this card together. It looked a little plain so I "stitched" around everything to make it pop.

Baby card

My niece is hopefully going to have had her baby by the time this posts. She dosent know what she is having so instead of waiting I just made a gender neutral card. I got the idea for this card from Pinterest, I love that site!

Dry erase frame

I needed a quick end of the year gift for my sons bus driver, he loves her and we have been giving her gifts since he was in kindergarten. He is now in 9th grade so needless to say I am running out of ideas. I decided to make her a dry erase frame because not only have we never made her one but it is also super easy to do.

Note cards

I love these cards! I made these as a gift for Sharon the bday girl last month in the swap that I am in. She likes vintagey, is that a word lol, things so I decided to do a dress form on a card. I used the Forever Young Cricut cart for the dress form and embellished it so it wasnt so plain.

Wedding invites

These are the invites that I did for my niece, I had to do 100 of them and they took forever to finish. I got the original idea from Here and changed the sizes to make it cheaper by using an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock instead of 12x12.

Big Heart -Cricut cart Plantin Schoolbook

The following is from SU
