The unique thing about this single page layout is that I didn't use any B&T, or patterned, paper. All the patterns were created on the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge except the bottom strip that I stamped with "All the Details." The other stamps came from the stamp sets that comes with the new Cricut cartridge. I used Outdoor Denim, Indian Corn Blue and Ruby on White Daisy card stock. If you are a scrapbooker with a Cricut this new cartridge is a "Must-Have!"

This adorable card was made with three, well four, of the new products in the Fall/Winter Idea Book. The penguins are from one of our new hostess sets called "Wintry Wishes." The paper is Frosted on some old Grey Wool card stock. Then I used the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge to with the silver glitter paper to create the overlay. I also used the dimensional elements that came with the Cricut to frame the penguins.

This is the Surf's Up layout the girls club made yesterday. The pinwheels were a real hit with the girls. Both the Stamp of the Month version and the ones we made using 2 1/2 inch squares.
If any of you in the "big girls" club ever want to make the layout the young girls made just let me know and I'll cut out the pieces for you. $10 and it can be yours.

Babycakes! One of our new papers from the Fall/Winter Catalog. The 6 x 6 card design is from page 20 in Originals. I used Sunset ink and the Solos 'B' stamp set. A little Baker's twine and some hardware finished it off.
A friend of mine is helping to host a bridal shower for her son's fiancee. As a result, I cut out 96 purses using For Always paper with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. At 4.5 inches you can get 2 to a sheet. But I still had pieces of paper left that looked usable. So I cut the scrap into 2 inch squares and viola! My own B&T design! I also did a page using the zip strips and half inch strips of the black B&T. The purse shown is one that I glued together but will be "blinged" up by my friend, including a Lagoon colored pocket.
