My Man - First LO of the Year!

For Christmas, I was given 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges by Elizabeth Kartchner from my amazing boyfriend, and I absolutely LOVE it! When I first laid eyes on that book, I didn't pay it much attention because I assumed that it wouldn't really be geared towards my style, but after flipping through it a few times during my break at work, I knew it would be useful.

As many of you know, I don't make a lot of scrapbook pages, so I combined a few of the challenges to help me with this layout. I don't want to reveal too much from the book, so as to not spoil it for any one expecting to get it. I'll just say this - I combined black and white with color, made a list, and used some of my old supplies that were collecting dust!

At work tomorrow, I'll be demoing the Cricut and Gypsy once again, and I like to have samples with me to show off how amazing the Cricut can be. I think I'll take this layout with me :) I used the city border on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to create the 11" border on the bottom, and then used clear embossing powder to emboss the entire surface.

Of course, no layout is complete without a touch of Tim, so I used Grungeboard elements, and a few of his stamps. The Grungeboard letters and accents were covered in either black or white Enamel Accents from Ranger. Love how they turned out...

I hope you like it! I must say this is my favorite layout so far this year, hehe :)


  1. Great layout! I love how you used the city-scape on the bottom of the page, too. The enamel on the letter looks awesome, too. Perfect touch! :)

  2. Came to your demo today at Joann's. It was really insightful. During this time you told me a website that gives the Cricut setting for various paper types. Evidently I didn't get it down quite right for the page doesn't exist as I have it written down. Tell me again the website please.
    Thanks so much.

  3. Great LO, I love her book and was lucky enough to get an autographed copy then met her in September at Spark! She has become a friend of mine and is a complete doll! Isn't she just sooo talented!! Love her! Like your blog header! Still think you should ditch CPP from your blog roll, LOL. ;) miss ya friend!!

  4. Now thats the way to start the new year. Great layout......
