34th birthday and the best is yet to come! layout made using Cake Basics.

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all having a great week! We are supposed to get a huge snow storm here in the Dallas area, so here's hoping my school is closed today ;-)

Thank you all so much for the wonderful birthday wishes! I read them all with a huge smile on my face. What wonderful internet friends I have! It was a wonderful present from you all. Also, wasn't that birthday card that Joy made me the most beautiful thing ever! You should see it in person. Those pictures did not do it's fabulosity justice!

Today's layout is one I made for my birthday pictures. It is a one page layout that has room for three pictures. I made is using the Cake Basics cartridge. This cartridge has some really fun cuts on it. For those of you out there that do not know, you can actually use your Cake cartridges with your expression! In fact most of my favorite cartridges are cake cartridges!

I used the new Sophie line from Close To My Heart.
I cut the scalloped rectangle out at 3". The flower is cut out at 2" and the leaves at 1 1/2". '34' was cut at 1 1/2". Stamps used are from Papertrey Ink.
This ribbon is from Close To My Heart.
This journaling box was cut out at 3 1/2". Then I stamped it using Papertrey Ink and Close to My Heart stamps.

 Thank you so much for stopping by! I have posted something new over on my blog as well, so head over there to take a look! Click here ==> Courtney Lane Designs

Also, check out Joy's awesome blog by clicking here ==> Obsessed with Scrapbooking. She did a great review of the new Cricut Magazine and also has some cool info from CHA!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Absolutely beautiful!!!! I am in love with this layout. I need to buy this cart, the stamps, everything!!!!
Where can i find more information on how to use the stamps, where to buy them? I didn't know you could use a stamp to create a journaling section in your layout.
This layout is FANTASTIC!!!

I'll be purchasing my first Cricut product ever (the expression) within the next couple of weeks and I look at your blog daily for inspiration and wisdom. Thanks again!

Beautiful layout!

Just A Pac Rat said...

Beautiful layout! I would like to see it again, with the pictures attached. What if your colors don't match the pictures? Then what do you do with the layout? I have had this problem in the past with pre-made layouts, and was just curious what others do to fix the problem.

Any answers, E-mail me? vjbaker@pixius.net

Thanks for the great idea thou, it is beautiful!
