FCCB #175: Heat Wave

Good morning everyone!

It's Missy here with another Fantabulous Friday post for you!  This week the theme of our challenge is "Heat Wave"---use anything that reminds you of summer on your project!

First up we've got this darling flip flop card made by Sheila of She's a Sassy Lady.  She used the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons for those cute flip flops.

Next we've got Carole from Groovy  Kitty's fabulous summer scene!  She used the Life's a Beach cartridge for this one.

Finally we've got this terrific layout posted by Linda at Scrappy Therapy. She used the new Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge.

Here's a few cartridges that you can use to find some more great summer themed images!

Thursday Tutorial - Organizing Paper Scraps

Hello everyone, JoNeita from Create with JoNeita here to share a video tutorial on how to organize your paper scraps.  After I saw this video, I tried it and it is super easy and a great way to keep all those leftover paper pieces you have from using your Cricut.  

This video is from Linda at the Paper Boutique, and she shows us how to make our own paper pads using scraps and duct tape or wonder tape.  I can see how this could be really, really useful not only for your pattern papers, but with solid cardstock as well.  Since you can make these in any size, you can organize all those leftover scraps.

Go try this and get those scraps organized. 
Happy Crafting!!!

Scrappin' on Saturday

Wow, I can not believe August is almost over. The summer is slowly fading away as fall creeps up behind it.

This weeks challenge was to create a summer themed project. So, I scoured the galleries this week in search for a project that preserved a perfecr summers memory. 

This mini album was created by Doxie Mel Designs and is absolutely adorable. She used a couple different Cricut cartridges to create it. Make sure you head over to her blog to check out the rest of this fabulous little mini!!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend!! And don't forget...there is still time to enter into this weeks challenge!!
