Guest Designer Tuesday

Good morning Crafty friends,
Welcome to our Guest Designer Tuesday post. Today we have another one of our fabulous friends showcasing her talents. If you follow our blog at all and see some of the entries, you will have undoubtedly come across the wonderful Paula Bee’s wonderful designs! Here is Paula’s post:

"I am so honored to be a guest designer at Cooking with Cricut!  They have
such great challenges and an amazing design team.  I can't say how much it
means to me to have been asked to join them for a day.

I started scrapbooking when I was in high school.  However, I really got
into it when I got my first Cricut, the baby bug, back when they first came
out.  I upgraded to the Expression when it came out and I now have an E2.  I
also have a Gypsy, which I love to use....who can resist being able to weld
and manipulate images?!

I currently live in the St. Cloud area in Minnesota.  I moved here from
Alaska, where I lived for two years.  My husband and I spent a lot of time
traveling around Alaska, so a lot of my scrapbook pages feature my Alaskan

For my project I used Campin' Critters...one of my new favorite cartridges.
I just love the images on this cartridge.  I created this 12"x12" double
layout, which shows some pictures of a trip to Valdez.  The moon and sun are
both cut at 3," the bear at 3 1/2" and the wolf at 4," and all are from
Campin' Critters.  I used Camp Out to cut the picnic table and Pooh Font Set
to cut the title.

My second project is a birthday card, actually two, for my cousins. They
are both turning 30 on the 30th of the months they were born in, so it will
be their golden birthdays.  My mom requested a fun golden birthday card for
them.  I used the bigfoot cut, which is one of my favorites on this
cartridge.  I then used Birthday Bash for the letters and used some gold
Stickles on them."
