Scrapping with out picture!!!!!! Using Feelin' Groovy Cricut Cartridge

Hello everyone-Bryan the Scrapguy here and I am so excited to be sharing with you today.  Life has been nuts and I am typing this from Milan Italy--can I tell you I love my job!!!!
So I have a one pager for you today.  I do a lot of scrapping with out pictures in mind.  I do this because the layouts make great gifts and allow people to have a really creative gift that they feel they can add to with journals and photos. 
So today I used the Feelin' Groovy cartridge and some paper I seem to have been holding onto from Basic Grey--the paper has a retro feel so I thought it went well with the cuts


As I was going through the book I was drawn to this TV--it reminds me of the big massive TVs my grandparents had, and a little avocado green didn't hurt making it more real!
The base matte was cut from the cartridge as well as I laid it out I cut the matte just a bit as I cut it a little large--there are no mistakes in scrapping just challenges--sometime unexpected but none the less challenges!  I  used foam tape to give the TV a few different layers you can't see them in the picture but they are there--I PROMISE!!!
For my journal i used a 4x6 matte and layered it up with a white stamped image (stamps from CTMH) I stamped the image twice to give me ten lines to list my top 10 TV shows.  I used some ribbon I bought years ago at Joann's that finally matched a project I was working on!

I used my all time fav font Don Juan for my title and layered it up .  I also added some silver half beads to give a little bit of shine and texture. 

Thanks for stopping in and feel free to shoot on over to my personal blog where I share some fun projects, good blog candy, and a guys point of view on this wonderful hobby we all have!!!

JANLYNN said...

Your TV brings back memories of the first TV my husband and I had. We had just married and as all newly weds money was tight. His grandmother gave us a TV she had. It had the same green on the stand that made it look like it had speakers across the lower front. WE used that TV untill we could get a better one. Your color choices are perfect for the style.
