As I am finishing up my Bind-it-All classes at My Creative Classroom, I enjoyed making this little Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album for an eleven year girl that I just met. The paper came from The Paper Studio Safari Untamed Stack. Both of my girls loved pink, purple and zebra print growing up, so I am hoping this young lady does as well. Her family makes it habit to recycle and upcycle, so this makes a perfect gift for her.
Nothing like going AWOL right after starting a new blog, eh? Well, these past several months have taken several turns and have kept us all busy.
This past week, I was excited to finally be able to unpack my Cricut and get to work. I was like a kid in a candy store and had difficulty focusing on just one project to begin and then complete. Looking for inspiration on several blogs, I noticed that many crafters had created holiday banners and so my journey began.
Cricut Cartridges Used: B is for Boy, Storybook, Lacy Labels, Christmas and Joys of Season.
I did not have any chipboard on-hand so I upcycled some cereal boxes that I had been saving (for the perfect project).
Though it is not perfect, and is fairly simple, I am a bit proud of my creation and proud that I finally learned how to use the layers feature on my Gypsy.

With two daughters that will be Resident Assistants, me and both of my Cricuts have been very, very busy. My Hero and I were camping at Meade State Lake and Hais joined us for a few days so that we could work on her dorm room door decs (slang for door decorations..haha). We had a great time and much was accomplished. The space was tight and we had to improvise, but all went well.
The theme to welcome the students on her floor is….
“Several Journeys….One Destination”
…so luggage tags seemed the perfect compliment. Using bright colors with neon animal and other prints, she layered the tag with a shadow and added the names individually. A black ribbon and a clear bling embellishment were the crowning touch.
And this is the mess that was created from our fun. I save the scraps, so that I can cut the useable parts for my saved scraps pile.
Couldn’t finish the post without a photo of Hais and Blondie together. Hais had not seen Blondie since she suffered her stroke and both were ecstatic to see one another. They were inseperable the entire visit.
