Cricut Cartridge:Storybook ,Creating Keepsake Magazine & Winners!

After going through the magazine yesterday and earmark a few ideas, I was inspired to scrap our New Orleans pics we took for Spring Break this year that was in storage:)
A couple of ideas I found on page 38 of the Creating Keepsake Magazine Super Fast pages with 4x6 photos by Kelly Purkey was to use circles in varying sizes. Kelly Purkey incorporated her title on the circles.
One thing I haven't told you guy's I am an avid stamper, I luv luv to incorporate stamps and the Cuttlebug machine in my work :)
My creative wheels started turning,that Provo Craft Storybook Cartridge has a scallop circle shadow under the letter I. That would work perfectly with my idea of incorporating stamping.

To get the perfect size, stamp on cardstock all the images, then use center point   to cut the stamp circles into a scallop, works perfect every time.

After cutting ink the edges of the scallop and place onto your layout.

Right page with the Journaling using the scallop from Storybook Cartridge. I luv luv how the scallop journaling mirror the river walk circle.

This lay out I created the flourish using Home accent and Rangers Stickles.
The story behind this pic, I was fascinated by the gold statues that line the Trocadero palace, then I started wondering how many people rush by them without seeing their beauty en route to see the Eiffel tower.
I wanted a different type of shot of the Tower. I waited an hour for the tourist to disperse when I finally got this shot crouching on the ledge, till today this picture has remain my favorite.

Details of the flourish with stickles.


Supply used: Provo Craft Storybook, Home Accents. Ranger Stickle, K & Company, Hero Art stamp, Uhu Glue, Colorbok fluid chalk, Prima flowers, Making Memories, Staz on ink.
