Now that we are done with Easter it's time to get working on Mother's Day Cricut projects, I have a home decor project that I am working on, for Mother's Day I will have it done soon and share it with you. Since we have about three weeks I figured I would get my scrapbook layout ready so that I won't have to worry about that and can just concentrate on making gifts and cards.
So for this layout, I use Kate's ABC's Cricut cartridge for the flowers. They were made from paper cut out at 4". They are also raised up using pop dots (you can't tell that in the picture but added a lot of good dimension on the layout it's self.
Then Happy Mother's Day is cut out from the Phrases Cricut cartridge. I have never used this cartridge before thinking that I have plenty of phrases on other cartridges. If I don't have it I can just make it up with letters. But I actually love how this title turned out. The image has three layers instead of just the two. This allows the Mother's to stand out more. It also has the shadow option that I didn't use. Anyway, I love how it added that extra layer to make Mother's stand out, makes it look more like you designed it your self rather than just having it cut from a cartridge.
When you are pre-making pages for your scrapbook album, I suggest you don't glue down any parts that overlap your photo squares. Such as with the flower on the left-hand side, don't glue it onto the photo square itself. Just glue it to the background. Otherwise when you go to insert your photo's in you will have to lift it up and may risk tearing your paper and ruining your cuts. Or have to cut your picture smaller or funny to make it fit. Yes, I did learn this the hard way a few times :)
