Denim Blues

Today’s layout features CM’s Denim Blues paper pack and embellishments.

I also used the Heart Chain border cartridge to make the large heart.  I made some tiny snips with my scissors to help it take shape.

Changing Colors

Today’s layout was made with two layers of the CM scallop dots border cartridge.  I also used used the old CM Stork’s Delivery cricut cart for the letters.  Add a bunch of colored dots that my friend Lynn gave to me at our Scrapbook Retreat, and I was happy.

Today’s post shows CM’s awesome border maker using the evergreen cartridge.  I also used CM’s epoxy stickers.  I’m not a big fan of the epoxy stickers, but I’m trying to use them so that I’ll like them!  Thank you for looking today!

Today’s layout is my favorite from the online sketch class I took last month (out of 20 sketches).  This layout was made with:

  • SU’s wintergreen paper
  • CM’s border maker using the frame chain cartridge
  • CM’s vellum accents
  • CM’s stickers & embellishments

Thank you for looking today!

Dig In


Today’s layout is from that online sketch class I’ve mentioned previously.  This was so easy, and I had 3 photos that went together so they were perfect for this layout.

Here’s what I used:

  • CM’s border maker with the diamond chain cartridge
  • CM’s ABC/123 stickers in silver (old style)
  • CM’s reindeer sticker
  • Stamping Up’s Christmas paper
  • CM’s rotary trimmer to cut the paper into strips

Thank you for looking today!

I Wish …


For today’s layout, I used CM’s very popular border maker, using two different cartridges.  The paper and stickers I used are from Stampin Up, and it seems I’ve had them forever.  It’s always great to use up older stash!


Grama’s Socks

For today’s layout, I used CM paper, CM stickers, CM ABC stickers, and CM’s awesome border maker.  My Mom knits socks that everyone in my family loves, they are a great gift.  Thank you for checking in today.

Today’s layout is from another sketch from the online sketch class I am taking.  I used CM’s Cheerful Christmas paper and stickers.  I did some tearing and really like the look.  I also used CM’s Rotary Trimmer with the pinking edge for the strips.  Thank you for checking in today!

Today’s layout is from an online sketch class I’m taking.  I used CM’s border maker and its newest cartridge to go with it – the hexagon.  I was able to get lots of pics in this 2-page spread, which made me very happy.  Thank you for looking!

Borders 101, part IV

Here are some more borders using CM’s border maker, rotary trimmer, and circle punch.  The top one is made with the circle punch, cutting several circles of two different sizes and papers.  I folded them all in half and then did some layering.  Anything goes with this one.  The second border is made with the pennant cartridge to CM’s border maker tool.  I cut 4 different pennant borders, added some detailing with black pen, and placed them any which-way on the base.  I also used CM’s rotary trimmer with the pinking edge and used CM’s Delight paper buttons and flowers to embellish.  Thank you for looking!  🙂
