My stash is continuing to decrease because nothing new is coming in. The Cricut is the hero of the day. It takes longer to complete layouts because I can't just open a package and place embellishments, but I am happy with the results I am getting and love that my scraps are getting used. I feel this frozen process is forcing me to be more creative. I see a look I like, and I have to figure out how to get that look with what I have in my scrap room.
I cut the rectangles with the Cricut and placed them where I wanted them. I even used eyelets on this one. This is a simple clean layout of Matt and his good friend.
This is from a trip to the Great Salt Lake. I got creative on this one. The blue paper was hand painted by me several years ago, and I loved how it looked with these pictures. I used the Cricut, stamps, wire, and embossing powder on this layout.
I used stamps behind the picture block and then used glitter embossing powder to get the look of salt crystals. The dragonflies are stamped, colored, cut out, stacked with pop-dots, wire added, and placed on the layout.
