I love the Workshop Guides and How-To Books from Close To My Heart. They were the first products that really made an impression on me 2 years ago when I signed up as a Consultant, and have changed how I scrapbook.
I've gotten way more pages done in the last 2 years all because of these books. Although there are thousands of sketches available online I always turn to the guides because they have all the measurements laid out for cutting and placement on the page.
The page I made below uses the Charlotte Workshops Your Way Cutting Guide. This cutting guide is available free for download until April 30th on my website.
Here is the example layout from the Charlotte Workshops Your Way guide.
My layout using the same pattern but adding in an extra photo and using Cricut cuts.
Fun basketball Cricut cut - my daughter had curly blonde hair when she was a kid, so I cut this image to match and placed it beside the photos of her throwing the ball at the hoop.
This cut from the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge is perfect for this Coca-Cola Family Picnic layout. I'm sure I'll be using it alot since I have more pages to scrap from other Coca-Cola employee family events.
