Practical Scrappers PATTERN PAPER challenge

Good morning friends! Do you have Patterned paper coming out of every crevice in your space? Do you love it but are worried on "matching it" or GASP using it up for fear of not having it anymore? Then come and see PRACTICAL SCRAPPERS challenge this week. We were challenged as the design team to use TWO patterned papers but you only need to use ONE, now how simple is that?There are TONS of talent and ideas, we just added new design team members to come and check them out! So get to creating, link up on PRACTICAL SCRAPPERS Mr. Linky for a chance at a fab prize and some blog love! I cant wait to see what you come up with!!!!

For this challenge I was inspired by a video posted on youtube that made its way around the cricut.com site. My mini album is simply bill fold envelopes, cut in half, sealed and decorated as I saw fit. I kept this one pretty simple, since it is a gift and I want her to add what she wants to it and make it her own. You could bind it up, tie it with ribbon or do what I did and use book rings. Each section holds tags at about 4.5 by 3.5 or so. So come on use what you have and show me what you can do!

ETA: Here is the link to the you tube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj85KIIAU4U&feature=channel


  1. Crystal, really nice little album. I must have missed that you tube tutorial. Hmmmm, will go search for that. You hit the nail on the head for me, matching patterned paper. Ugh. I tried though, but mine are very simple.

  2. OMG, love this, Cystal! your papers are just yummy! Love it!!!! :)
