want to show you what you can do with your
I still have one of the first Cricut machines
( the smaller one)
and to be honest I don't do anything
spectacular with it. Mainly I use it for cutting
letters. I love all the alphabets.
Today I want to share with you a little booklet that was made
with the "Storybook" cardtridge.
I started with cutting the pages for my booklet
at 5 1/2 inch with
Lotus Pond papers.
A total of 10 different pages were cut.
To make the outerpages a little more sturdy,
cut 2 pages out of grey bord by tracing
with a pencil
the ones you cut out with your machine.
Then cut them out.
Use bookbinding glue to adhere 2 pages: one to the front
and one to the back of the grey board.
Do the same for the backpage.
Choose the pictures and print them.
I have a wonderful free program called
Picasa, where you can print in all sizes
and this time I choose to print them wallet size.
Back to the Cricut and the letters
for the front page were cut and on the edges
some ink was added.
Me and no stamps? No......!
So I got the Lotus pond stamps out,
ink and my Karisma pencils.
When all pages are finished,
pile them together and punch a whole
and use a bookbinding ring to hold
them together. Decorate the ring
with ribbons and charms.
Here you see the result of it all:
Front page: cut out lettering, stamps
and ribbons. Extra charms: dragonfly and frog.
I chose the water lily theme because
my water lilies started to bloom yesterday and I just
remembered I have so many beautiful pictures
of them that I can use in a booklet.
Pictures, scrap background, stamps and a cut out form
that is stamped on.
Pictures and stamped images.
Pictures, stamped images and ribbon.
Fowers with Cricut, lettering with stencil,
pictures and stamped images.
And on the back of the booklet I used some text
printed with the computer. Stamped images, flower picture and brad.
