Memories of Summer Mini Album

Hello, Kristen Swain here with a summer memories album that will be sure to warm you up as you look through it during the cold winter months. I created this simple album focusing on keeping my die cut elements large, my photos about wallet sized and using bright colors. I used all cardstock so I kept costs down but was able to keep colors on each page.

Using a plain album, I decided that using spray mist would help me add background color, without the difficulty of trimming off paper at the edges of the cover. I used a lime and a jack frost color, then added in a spray and larger drops of  turquoise across the front and back of the album. There is a touch of glitz as well. Then I cut some bright colorful letters for the title, adding in a bright sun as well, and I used brown for the rest of the title, so it would stand out, but not be the strongest color on the front.

Doggy Treat Container

Welcome Cricut Fans! It’s Juliana Michaels! I have a fun little up-cycle/recycle project to share with you today to create a fun treat container for your perfect pooch! My husband and I have recently made friends with some sweet neighbors who have dogs. So now when we want a dog fix, we know where to go! LOL!!! With that in mind, I was inspired to create today’s project using my Cricut Expression machineCricut Vinyl, and an empty 2lb plus coffee can.

Here is the empty container before I decorated it. I want to say thanks to my Dad for drinking so much coffee and being willing to part with a few of his empty containers. He uses these to store all kinds of things, but was happy to share a few with me for my crafting projects.

I Love My Dog

If you had a pet as a child, or have a pet in your life now, you know that they are such an important part of our lives. They make us laugh, make us crazy with their messes, and more often than not, bring a smile to our faces as they discover the world around them and love us unconditionally. The memories you have of your pets are definitely worth including in your family scrapbooks. Check out the pet pages below from two of our design team members, Amy Mitchell and Jana Eubank.


Hi Cricut Friends! It’ Amy Mitchell sharing a fun layout of our little dog Maya as she joined our family. We adopted her from a family that just couldn’t keep her anymore. Lucky for us!

Furry Friend Memorial Frame

Pets are such a huge part of our lives and they leave their pawprints on our hearts forever. Kristen Swain is with us today with a sweet project paying tribute to a favorite fur baby that is sadly no longer with their family . . . a pet memorial frame.

Hello! Kristen here today with you with a loving memorial that I created for our beloved Casey. We adopted Casey a few years ago and even though she was only with us for a couple years, she became a huge part of our lives. Our family was devastated when she suddenly took ill and we had to ease her pain and put her to sleep. It’s been a little while since she’s passed, but we still miss her and I thought that a lovely memorial frame would be a nice addition to our bookshelves to remember her and still think about the wonderful times she brought to our family.
