Scrappy Sketch #21 - Glamor Girl

These scrapbook pages are for this weekends Scappy Sketch #21, I had these pages done last night and then this morning I woke up and looked at them, and guess what, the scrapbook fairy didn't come! I had the title letters cut out, but they looked to floaty, so I changed them and cut them into tags instead using my Cricut.

I'm loving my Cricut lately and I'm happy that I just invested in two more alphabets because I like all of the fun things you can cut out with it! The only frustrating thing about it is that I need a new mat (which is supposed to be sticky so your paper stays put) mine has lost all of its sticky, so lets just say I was doing a little hair pulling out trying to cut some of these flowers!

These pictures are of my daughter from her first manicure that Grandma treated her to for her birthday. I still need to add journaling under the title, were I left room.
On the close up of the flowers you can see that I used turquoise glitter paper on the large flower.

Don't forget to stop by and check out Cyndi's pages for this fun sketch!

Supplies: Doodlebug designer paper, Cricut cartrages - George and Basic Shapes (for flowers), All Mixed Up (for title), Scalloped scissors, SU flower punch and circle punch (for centers of flowers), Doodlebug sugared glitter paper. Colors: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore - SU, Pink & Lavender.

Cute pages! What cricut cartridges do you have? I'm finding I'm not using my cricut much. Thinking that maybe some new cartridges might help.
Anyhoo, very cute pages and nice card below too!!

love the sketch! I may have to try that out today! As for the cricut - i'm also a big fan. Have you tried using a baby wipe across your mat? Wipe down your mat with a baby wipe or soft wet cloth (that isnt going to pull off on your mat). It'll remove some of the paper fuzzies that get left on your mat when you pull the paper off. Leave the mat out to dry before you put the plastic protective sheet back over it. It doesnt give you a new mat, but it'll give you a little life back in the old mat until you can replace it. And cricut products are on sale a lot of places this week. :)

Hi Lynn~ Love your LOs! They are beautiful and the colors are GREAT! I also have a hint to revive your Cricut mat! If you fun it under water it takes off the paper fibers and brings back some of the stickiness! Hope this helps!
Hugs~ Kim
