Scrappin' Saturday: Design Your Own Background Paper!

Happy Saturday to you!

Today, I want to share with you another FANTABULOUS idea from our friend Amy Chomas with Chomas Creations...

Design your own background paper!!!
Amy used Cricut Design Studio and the George & Basic Shapes cartridge to make her own graph paper for this school-themed layout:

Instead of "cutting" the grid design, she used one of the Chomas Mini Gel Pen Holders with a blue gel pen and achieved the look of real graph paper with her Cricut!  Here's a close-up:
Amy is sharing her graph paper file for free HERE!

You could use this tecnique with any design and customize the color of the design based on your other papers and cardstock for a completely coordinated look!  Genius!!!  Head over to Amy's blog for more inspiration and ideas on how to use the gel pen and marker holders with the Cricut.

Happy Scrappin'!
