Scrapbooking

Tea Party Banner

 

Supplies:

  • 11 12″x 12″ scrapbook sheets
  • White scrap paper (embossed with the Cuddle Bug Embosser)
  • Roll of lace beads
  • Multiple patterned paper
  • Hot Glue gun

I used the die cut machine (Cricut) to make this Tea Party banner.  Started with 12″ x 12″ scrapbook sheets I got for free because Michael’s Craft store was going to throw them out a couple of years ago.  I cut 11 triangles out of these free scrapbook sheets.  Scrapbook albums come with white card stock sheets in the sheet protectors, so I used these in the Cricut to cut 11 circles of the same size.  The circles were embossed using the Cuddle Bug Embosser.   The lace beads were hot glued around the circles and hot glued down on the triangles.  Next,  I cut the letters using the Cricut out of colorful patterned paper and hot glued them on the circles.  I used a hole punch to cut two small holes across the top of the triangles to put string through it for hanging.

All the materials used came from my personal stock pile and did not have to purchase any materials to make this banner.

Scrapbooking With Cricut

Another passion of mine is scrapbooking.  Many years ago my co-workers invited me to take a scrapbooking class and that got me hooked.  The first two-page layouts came out great in class with the instructor’s direction.  It took me a while to get the hang of it, but with the Cricut die cut electronic machine its super easy now.

When I started scrapbooking I didn’t have a Cricut.  I used the Sissix which was heavy and the die cut templates are one size only and take up a lot of room to store it.  I love the Cricut because it uses cartridges and one design can be cut in many sizes.  The cartridges are small and easy to store.

I use my Cricut to make cards, photo corners, page layouts and banners.  Here are some of the projects I’ve done using my Cricut.
