I am entering a contest to become a member of a Design Team at Lasting Memories, to get my designs and name out, but also to make me focus a little more on my scrapbooking. The summer sure takes away from my creative time...well unless it is gardening!
I am a rather simple scrapper...I like my photos and memorabilia to be highlighted more than anything else. I have no idea what Lasting Memories is looking for as far as layouts... so I thought I would venture out and try something I don't often do... pre-made layouts rather than scrapping with pictures. Since I want this to be an available option in my scrapbooking business, I better start perfecting the art!
The designs I decided to share came from Cricut inspiration...I love my cricut(s!) but just don't spend as much quality time with them as I would like to. When I get in the mood to cricut though, there is no stopping me! Normally I draw my inspiration from the pictures that I am going to scrap, but this turned out to be a very fun little project!
I was having so much fun on my cricut that I decided to make a "Kid's Birthday" Layout as well. I love how the bright green contrasts with the dark brown. This was a delightfuly fun page to make. Most of the animals and lettering comes from "Zoobaloo" or one of the "Paperdolls" cricut cartridges. This would be a great layout for a kids party that was themed Trains, Zoo, or Animals. It would also be a good layout for a family outing to the Zoo. Enjoy!
