Watermelon Book

I made this book for the Cricut Circle monthly contest.  I made this book from images on my gypsy and bound it with my cinch.  I used shiny paper (came from my stash, no clue where I got it) and glossy accents on the seeds and ants to make it blend with the paper.  The words on cover are sans serif.  The ants came from nate's abc's.  The seeds are from splish splash.  BBQ letters are from block party.  The pages and tags are from gypsy wanderings.  I welded a few tags from gypsy wanderings to the base page to create the front pocket on some of the pages.  As soon as I have time to tweak it and figure out how to post it, I will add the gypsy file for people to use :)

Happy Woof Day!

Here is my entry for the Cricut Circle magazine challenge.  I made it out of a manila file folder and used Teresa Collins Posh and Timeless paper, chipboard stickers and Timeless trims.  I used vinyl for the letters so it would be a little shiny with the gypsy font.  The tags are from tags, bags boxes and more.  I used cuttlebug embossing folders: once upon a princess (butterflies) and script texture on the black and white tags.  Hopefully a doggy party qualifies as an "elegant celebration"!  I love this book because you can stand it up to display it.  I left journal spots in the middle on the back of the book so my Aunt can write whatever she'd like.  I also left the tags empty on the back so she could add pics or something else if she wanted.

Downtown Bentonville Bike Parade

Every year Downtown Bentonville puts on a kid's bike parade for the 4th of July.  This year Kayla asked me to cricut some stuff to decorate her bike with.  Here are some of the pics at the parade.  I made the cuts small enough that she could then use them on a page with the pics.
