Monogram LO

So I have decided to start doing layouts again and catch up on my albums. I think I'm only ~3 years behind!! LoL! Layouts scare me and I have a hard time figuring out where to place things & making it pretty with embellishments.

Well, lucky for me a wonderful person on the cricut messageboard named okieladybug has been posting bi-weekly motivation challenges that contains sketches for layouts. Could that be anymore perfect for a creatively-challenged person like myself?! Here is the sketch for 02/18's Challenge:

At first I wasn't too excited about this sketch, but after seeing everyone else's creations it inspired me. I found the perfect picture for this. It was taken January 2008 at Sears when we were doing a family portrait. It is of me and my boyfriend. Here is my LO:

B, D - Storybook Font @ 2.75"
& - Storybook Font @ 3"

February Team Challenge

Over on the cricut messageboard we have a monthly team challenge going on. This month I was a part of Team 2: Scrap Happy. February's challenge was to create a card or a layout with 2 cuts. The cuts must be a heart from any cart and the word love from any cart. I choose to do a card because layouts scare me! LoL. Here is my submission:

hearts - george
love - jasmine
heart sticker - k&co
patterned paper - k&co vday mat stack

valentine's day goodie bags & tags

alright... i've been so bad at keeping up on this blog! i have been scrapping, i promise! time to play catch up!

earlier this month, i made valentine's day goodie bags & tags to send to my family. 11 bags & tags in total. each tag was different and unique. i used a variety of carts, cuttlebug, heat embossing, stamps, stickers, ribbons, chipboard and other embellishments. All of the patterned paper is k&co vday mat stack.
