Blessings & a Gift Bag

The NEW Cricut Craft Room Exclusives digital cartridges have been posted for this week, and I created two projects to showcase a couple of the cartridges: Photo Corners and European Tour.

BLESSINGS

I used this photo for my daughter’s baptism invitations last fall, but had yet to scrapbook it. I decided that one of the beautiful photo corners from the NEW Photo Corners Craft Room Exclusive cartridge would make an elegant accent for this page. I decided to go with a monochromatic color scheme and pulled papers from all different ranges of My Mind’s Eye collections. I used Fun Day Kraft Day, Lost & Found, and Lost & Found 2. The gems (LOVE the colors!) are from the Fun Day Kraft Day collection.

The second digital cartridge I played with was European Tour. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with this cartridge when I first got the assignment because I have never in my life been to Europe (although I hope to someday). After pondering it for awhile, I decided that the images reminded me a lot of travel stickers that you could stick on a trunk or suitcase. So, I created a suitcase with the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More digital cartridge and the Stand & Salute cartridge. The Father’s Day sentiment was cut from the Wild Card cartridge.

This bag would also be a lot of fun to hold a mini album or photos of your travels to Europe. :)
