(I'm) Five Layout for Everyday Cricut


So are all my buddies in SHOCK again? Yup, you're seeing right, I did a layout!!!! I don't know what came over me, but reading the reader's comments on Everyday Cricut made me fool around and I think I'm starting to like this. Other than the hand from A Child's Year and the 2 inner mats from George, all of the cuts are from Graphically Speaking. LOVE those number borders and the jumbled words. My dear friend Leah has always loved this cartridge (and borrowed it often before she got her own, hee hee) and she is a scrapbooker extraordinaire. this happens to be a layout for a child, but Graphically Speaking has alot of great cuts for adults and I almost did one using one of my fave pix of DH on a back packing trip that hangs right here in my scrap room. Another day perhaps.
Had to laugh. I tried to carry the "5" theme throughout the layout: 5 buttons, 5 beads of each letter in the "five" word jumble and there in a closeup there are 6 adhesive beads on the letter "I". Thanks Michelle for pointing that out. All fixed now in real life. Trust me, it was a long day. LOL Alot of people are asking about those beads. I usually get mine at Michael's and they're their own Recollections brand. $1.99 per pack for 3 sizes and they come in loads of colors as well as pearls and rhinestones. I've got a whole drawer full because I stock up every time I go, especially when I've got one of those fab 20% off entire order coupons. Couldn't live without them! I've listed all of the sizes for this layout on Everyday Cricut. Also, for those who were asking, the .cut file for the criss cross cards is now available HERE at Custom Crops. The Baby frame is coming next so be sure to come back.

OH Donna! This layout is amazing! My little guy turns 5 in June, and I just have to find someone to borrow Graphically Speaking from. This is so inspiring and a "must make". Heehee!

I'm impressed you did a layout! And it's fabulous, Donna! Love that you managed to carry the theme throughout and the hand is just perfect! I can see a pic of a little one now holding up his hand to show how old he/she is! Too cute!
hugs!

I'm one of those people trying to figure out these beads! Are they individual that you've glued on perfectly? Are they somehow attached to each other first? If (make that WHEN) I got to Michael's, what do I ask them for when I can't find it for myself? My hubby "thanks" you in advance for turning me onto yet another fabulous product!

Donna,
This is such a great layout. I have to get back to doing scrapbooking and not so many cards.
I love the black and white papers. I do cards in black and white with a hint of color. E-mail: davidbayles@sprintmail.com

Oh Donna!! Fabulous layout my friend. I know we love card making, but sometimes it is nice to make a change. You did an awesome job on this one, now do I really need that cartridge? I think I do now. Love it!

Hugz, xx

Absolutely adorable. I will have to put Graphically Speaking on my wish list.
Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Estella said...

I think this is a fantastic layout! I have this cartridge and use it alot. I use the cricut pens to make a shadow effect but I think I like your idea better!

Denice aka Dedelicious said...

Oh my, I've been toying with the idea of getting A Child's Year but now sure how much I would use it...but you are an enabler! Are you sure you don't secretly work for Provocraft?!! LOL!

Love the LO, I'm giving you a high-five on this one!
