Layout using CM Adventure Collection with Go! Fight! Win! Project Recipe

I use a lot of sketches when scrapbooking and love that Creative Memories creates a Project Recipe to go with each new paper collection.

For this layout, I took the Go! Fight! Win! Project Recipe but used the Adventure Collection to scrap my camping pictures. 

The Project Recipe used the Border Maker System but since I don't have many cartridges yet I decided to create my own in Design Space using the campfire image from the CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge.

Always have to have a bit of sparkle on my pages so I cut a strip of CTMH Bronze Shimmer trim in half lengthwise and used it as a border along the CM patterned paper.

My title is from Miss Kate Cuttables, cut mostly from Recollections cardstock.  
It was pretty easy to find colours that coordinated well with the CM Adventure patterned papers. 

Products used in this layout:
  • CM Adventure Paper (retired)
  • CM Adventure Stickers (retired)
  • CM Beige Cardstock
  • Recollections Cardstock
  • CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge
  • CTMH Bronze Shimmer Trim

 The Adventure Collection has now been retired but the Digital Kit is still available for purchase on my CM website and can be used in your favourite digital scrapbooking or diecutting software.

Bash My Stash: Christmas Tag Gift Card Holder Freebie

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

I'm finishing up my holiday preparations and quickly put together a couple of the Christmas Tag Gift Card Holders by Printable Cuttable Creatables.

I imported the file into Cricut Design Space and resized it to make a large tag.  I have a couple of certificates that aren't standard gift card size.  The finished tag is approximately 6" tall by 3" wide.  I added the rectangle so I would have a piece to stamp on since the Recollections patterned paper is very busy.

Since I am still working on bashing my stash, I used an old stamp from SU All Year Cheer II and some stickers that I have had since the early 2000's. I also used up some old embossing powder that I've had for at least 15 years, not my favourite as far a quality goes but the colour was right for this project.   The ribbon is SU Whisper White.

These will hang from the tree until my kids get here to open gifts on Christmas Day.

I might even make a couple more in a standard gift card size if I have time - they are perfect for gift card giving year round.

This SVG file is currently available for free on the Printable Cuttable Creatables website.
