It's Your Day -look at my mini photo journal!

I decided to have some fun with one of the new Fall paper packs, Scholastic, the It's Your Day stamp set & the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge. 
The base pages and the grid liners are all cut with the Artiste cartridge. (cut the grid liners 1/4 smaller than the base pages)

Each page is stamped with a different stamp from the It's Your Day stamp set that is available 8/15/12 to 9/30/12. 
This is a double stamp set - you get 2 D size stamp sets in this special collection to celebrate National Stamping Month!

Stamped Journal Pages - tabs are made with Color Ready Ribbon tinted with Barn Red re-inker. Attach the ribbon to the base page with red tacky tape then put the grid liner on top for a nice finish.

The journal is tied together with hemp. If you use a pencil, you can tie the hemp securely & the pages will open flat so you can add your pictures and notes.
 Many of these images are designed so you can cut the shapes on your Cricut then just stamp & add to your project! What could be easier or more fun!

Baroque Borders & La Belle Vie!

For this card I've used papers from the new La Belle Vie paperpack;the August Stamp of the Month, Baroque Borders; and ribbon and epoxy bubbles from the Avonlea Cardmaking Workshop kit. The scroll corner stamp is stamped directly on the background paper with cocoa ink. The plume is stamped with Versamark on another one of the La Belle Vie papers and clear embossed then cut out.
So have fun mixing and matching kits and see what you can create!
