Paper Crafts Untitled - 1

Happy NSD – A Bit Early

It’s a little early to celebrate NSD. What is NSD? It’s National Scrapbooking Day! Happy NSD!

It’s a day to celebrate the crafting of our family history, the story of we.

I adore this craft, although you can see I participate in many others.

It’s because of scrapbooking that I am here where I am today.

It made me a better story teller, even though I still have miles to go.

I’m a better photographer too. I feel happy to create and craft memories of my kids.

I want to share a  Cricut layout with you.

No files to share today, but a fun layout.

First, I used both Paper Trimmings , Bloom, and  Wild Card Cricut Cartridges to create this layout.

I first cut the swirl and used a mister to add color to the yellow background. Once it was dry, I just moved the cut a little and adhered it into place. While I was adding the mist, I added droplets all over the layout as well.

I popped up my photos using foam tape, and then mounted them onto a white block.

I also used the patterned paper to cut out the zigzag strips. (They were already in the pattern.)

I used Bloom to cut out the flowers. Once I had them together, I crumpled them to give them texture.

I cut out the title using Wild Card, and adhered that to the layout.

I added my text, then added these pretty grey little gems a couple of places across the layout.

It’s definitely different colors for me, and for a girl layout, but I love it! So pretty!
