The One with Layouts in Cricut Magazine February/March 2011

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Have you seen the premiere issue of Cricut Magazine - the February/March 2011 issue?
There were some holes to fill so I got the chance to make two layouts for it - woo hoo! And, this magazine is now going monthly (that was fast, only three issues of bi-monthly!) so there will plenty of opportunities for Cricut-lovers alike to make creations and get published. I have been having so much fun playing with my Cricut with this extra boost of motivation! Here are my layouts in this issue:

I'll admit this layout was cooler in my mind's eye than it turned out - it's kind of a hott mess :)

How to: I die cut my title from an assortment of my favorite bright colored patterned papers (that match Fox's nursery of course!) using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge, then I used the negative shapes on my layout. I folded some of the corners down and stitched over them for texture. Then I added a trio of pictures, a dash of chipboard shapes, and some lines of journaling. Bada-bing, bada-boom, all done!

Journaling says: It's so fun to imagine that in about three weeks there will be a baby to rock in this glider, to wear this closet of clothes, and to put in this crib. It's been a long 9 months and we're so excited to meet little Fox!

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, chipboard (army man, basketball, brackets, car), pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Die cut machine: Cricut; Cartridge: George and Basic Shapes


How to: First I sprayed a couple of shades of yellow mist across the light yellow background. Then I die cut a million damasks from yellow cardstock using the Home Accents cartridge. I pieced them together how I liked on the background, took a picture, turned them over and sprayed them with adhesive, then referred to my picture to put them back where they were. I added two lovely pictures, a Thickers title, and two scalloped borders punched from brown cardstock. Then I die cut some leaves and their layers from two shades of green cardstock, added them to the corners, and set three pearl brads next to each set of leaves. Maren and Logan - you're now published and famous :)

Journaling says: Logan and Maren were married for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake City temple on Wednesday August 25th 2010.

Supplies: Cardstock, pearl brads, chipboard letters, pen: American Crafts; Spray mist: Tattered Angels; Scalloped border punch: Fiskars; Die cut machine: Cricut; Cartridge: Home Accents
