New Cartridge - Challenge 317

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #317-Something New
Make a project using a new cartridge, embellishiment, or image. But there has to be a least one cut from the Cricut Library!

This Weeks Sponsor

And the prize is-

A $10 coupon code for anything in the store!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

My Project

To Create this Card I used a new cartridge that I got for Christmas from my kiddos!
I used: Creative Everyday Cards
I used the pencil card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment from another card.
Added some brads and popped it up with pop up dots.
It was a fun masculine card to make and now I'm ready for the next birthday!

Let's Scrap - Friends Forever

Since moving away from my home town I don't get to see my old high school/college friends very often. There was a core group of us that hung out beginning in high school and we are all friends still. The one friend that was responsible for all of us meeting and ultimately becoming friends was getting married. It was so fun to all be back together for an evening. What was also fun was seeing all of our children together. Definitely one of those sentimental moments that needs to be scrapbooked and kept for all time!

Let's Scrap has a fantastic sketch up on the blog that was perfect for these pictures. This sketch included a fun element: booklet.

At first I had some trouble figuring out how to do this but then it became clear. I hope you enjoy the layout and the booklet as pictured for you below. I decided to use the left side of the layout.
And I hope you are inspired to try this fun element on your next layout!

The Sketch:

My Take (on the left side of the sketch)

To Create this Layout I used:

Crate Paper: paper stack
Mambi Chips: chipboard stickers
K & Company: Fall - diecuts
My Minds Eye: All Things Lost & Found - diecuts
Cricut Cartridges:
Fabulous Finds - booklet
Bits & Pieces - tags
Baby Steps - font for names on tags
twine, eyelets, krinkle ribbon

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
