I go to crops at least once per month, plus I scrap at home at least a couple times per month. I usually create the layouts and then come back later to add headlines, journaling and embellishments.
I just got a Cricut Explore Air machine! I have had a Cricut & Gypsy for YEARS, and I LOVED them. However, I decided that it was time to upgrade. I got the Michael's special because it was teal. As you can see, my craft room walls are teal and I am even wearing teal today - it's one of my favorite colors.
Now I am concentrating on adding headlines, journaling, etc to any pages that are already completed in my albums. As I finish them, I will be posting!
When I was setting up my Explore, I was prompted to make this adorable card. It used the cut and write features.
