WEEK8: Scrapbook Layout Thursday (Gypsy Intro)

Hello Everyone!! This is Tammy and today is Scrapbook Layout Thursday!! My layout was done with Cosmo Cricket's new Jolly by Golly Christmas line. I also used Core'dinations for my solid cardstock... let me tell you, they can match anything!



I thought these papers were fun... the names are even more fun, the green is called 'Breezy Freezy' and the pink is 'Silly Chilly'. If you don't have a LSS near you that carries the Cosmo Cricket line, you can order straight from their website HERE.

Most of you know that Joy, Melanie and I all received the new GYPSY from Provocraft and we are all so excited! I made a cut file for this layout and wanted to introduce you to the features of the GYPSY. It's a two part video, but I think you will be impressed with this new toy!!

Here's Part1:



Here's Part2:





I used the 'Smitten Kitten' cut from SWEETHEARTS and snowflakes from CHRISTMAS NOEL.



I also used the cartoche image off of SWEETHEARTS to back my title and to make this 'mini book on a page'.



The cartoche was cut at 5.5" with a foundation cut at 6".




I cut 2.5" off the left side of the bottom page, then staggered each page on top of it by 1/2".




Each page was scored 1/2" in from the left.



And the cream foundation page was then folded over the left edge to make the binding.



Hope you like it and please check back later for the video showing how I made the cut file in my GYPSY!!
Tammy

This is the cutest layout. I have never put a mini album on my page, but I will now, I just love how that turned out and the instructions/video were easy to follow.
Thank you for providing where to buy these stunning papers because I do not have a LSS close by and "M's" didn't have ANY Christmas paper yet and I have looked everyday this week.
