Momenta Design Team Project - "Baby Steps" Pocket Page Mini Album

Hi, everyone! I'm here with another Momenta design team project. I created this cute, pocket page mini album for a sweet family expecting their first child. Fortunately, I knew the baby's name ahead of time so I was able to personalize the book. 

Everything in this book is from the Momenta Baby Steps collection and I love how wonderfully everything coordinated! This mini album was so much fun to put together and I love the way it turned out.

This is a 5.5"x7.5" mini album with twelve pocket pages. It has twelve 5"x7" photo mats, twenty four 4"x6" photo mats and fourteen pockets for extra photos and mementos. 

I used the Lacy Labels Cricut cartridge to create the sentiment frame and the Robotz cartridge for the baby's name...

...and I added several chipboard stickers and the rhinestones from the collection.

I used a stamp on the inner pocket to create a birth announcement...

...and embellished each pages with chipboard stickers and titles.

And, of course, I created a card and a small gift tag to include with the mini album.

Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Haunted Mansion" Stair Step Card

Edit: This project was featured in the October 25, 2011 edition of the Cricut Chirp!

Time for another Stuck on U Sketches die cut challenge! This week the theme is "fence." As you can see, I'm still really excited about Halloween so I created this spooky stair step card. As ya'll know, I love creating scene layouts and I really like the effect of creating one on a stair step card because of the instant dimension. 

This is a standard A2 size card (4.25"x5.5") and all the cuts are from the Happy Haunting Cricut cartridge.

The tree was cut at 3.75", the fence was cut at 1.75" and the haunted mansion was cut at 6.75". I hand altered a few of the cuts, added some extra grass cuts and lightly inked everything in black ink. I stamped my sentiment onto cardstock and hand cut the cardstock for a custom fit.  

Both the tree and the sentiment are popped up on foam for extra dimension.

Patches of Pink Design Team Post - Haunted House Shaped Mini Album

Time for another Patches of Pink Link Up Party! This week we are showcasing Halloween projects! I used the Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge to create my first shaped mini album. I used the shadow feature of the Haunted House and cut six pages for my book. Each page was cut at 7.5" so I was able to cut two pages out of one piece of 12"x12" chipboard. I punched two holes and bound the entire thing with two metal rings. 

The designer paper and all the chipboard pieces are from the Target dollar spot.

Unfortunately, I'm having some technical difficulties with my video camera and have been unable to film the inside of my mini album but I promise I will do that as soon as my camera is fixed.

"Enter If You Dare" Halloween Door Hanger

This 3D Halloween door hanger was created using the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge. The sign, hat and boots were all cut from chipboard to make them a little sturdier and all of the cuts were popped up on several layers of foam for lots of dimension. 

I embellished the boots with black lace and orange satin ribbon.

The hat has a small layer of lace underneath the brim as well.

Momenta Design Team Project - "Criss-Cross Shaped Cupcake Card"

Hi, everyone! Faith Abigail with another Momenta design team project. I fell in love with the 12x12 Let's Party Pyramid Paper Pad and immediately knew that I wanted to create a festive birthday card featuring these pretty papers.

This is a 4"x6" criss-cross shaped card base with a 3.5"x5.5" pull out card. 

I used the American Alphabet Cricut cartridge to create this adorable cupcake and accented the card with a mini puffy sticker. Both of these are popped up on foam for extra dimension.

Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Happy Halloween" 12x12 Double Layout

Edit: This project was featured in the October 11, 2011 edition of the Cricut Chirp!

Hi, everyone! The theme for this week's Stuck On U Sketches die cut challenge is trees. Anytime there's a challenge involving trees or clouds, I always end up creating a scene layout. They're just so much fun to put together. So, for this week's project, I created a Halloween themed scene layout.

This is a standard 12"x12" double layout featuring four 4"x4" photo mats.

All of the cuts on this layout come from the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge. I bought this cartridge last year during a Black Friday sale and I'm so happy that I can finally use it! I have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot of this cartridge over the next few weeks.

How cute are these little tombstones? 


I cut one of the frames from the cartridge and used a Recollections Journal It stamp to create a journaling spot. 

All cuts have been inked and popped up on foam for added dimension. 

P.S. Many of ya'll have been asking me to create a Facebook page and I have finally broken down and created one! So, if you'd like to connect with me on Facebook, please "like" my page. Thanks so much!

"Brave is Beautiful" Breast Cancer Awareness Card

Hi, guys! I'm back with my second Breast Cancer Awareness card; I've been crazy busy these last few weeks and forgot to post this one. 

I started out with a 5"x7" card and layered it with hot pink cardstock and two pieces of designer paper.

The girl was cut from the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge and the scalloped shaped was cut from the Once upon a Princess cartridge.

The tag was cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge and stamped with a sentiment from the K Andrews Positive Thoughts stamp set.

I finished off the inside with a piece of white cardstock and a small strip of designer paper. All edges were inked and most cuts were popped up on foam.

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Rock Princess, Once Upon a Princess and Sweet Treats
K Andrews Art Stamps: Positive Thoughts
