Some Layouts And Free STUFF

Good morning crafty friends,

I just wanted to share a few layouts I have been working on recently. Normally I make “sample” pages that have just photo mattes and no pictures. But these are for a friend of a friend who is currently putting together books for her three adult children. So there was a lot to scrapbook. 

My Sweet Girls Layout

This layout is pretty simple. Nothing too fancy. The little girls on this layout are so precious looking! There were 8 photos to get on here, so we didn’t want to take away from any of them.
Cartridge used: Hello Kitty Font
Large letters: 2.5” Shadowed
Small Letters: 1.5” Shadowed
Large Butterfly: 3.5”
Small Butterfly: 2.5”

Childhood Memories Layout

This layout showcased several photos of different special occasions. Because these boys are twins, I made two Indian Bears.

I created this layout using the following cartridges:
Indian Bears: Paper Doll Dress Up
Childhood Title: Robotz and Gypsy (To Weld)
If you don’t have the Gypsy, you can still cut out the letters from the Robotz Cartridge alone.  The letters are approximately 2.25” high.

The memories title block is one that I created. You can download the FREE jpg file below. You can also download the FREE Gypsy File for the “Childhood” Title. You will need a Gypsy and the Robotz Cartridge for it to work.

Giddy Up Layout

I honestly can’t remember if I shared this one before. So I am doing it again. This layout was pretty simple. I used the following cartridges:
Horse: Boys Will Be Boys
Giddy Up Title: Disney/Pixar Toy Story
I also used some buttons and some Cappuccino Twine from the The Twinery to make a “faux rope” to decorate the photo matte.

8th Grade Graduation Layout

Here is another simple layout. I used the following cartridges:
Number and Letter for title: 3 Birds-Life’s A Party
Graduation Cap: Everyday Pop-Up Cards
Gypsy To Weld Them Together.

I created the “Graduation” title block. I used some Twine from The Twinery to create the “tassel” on the grad cap. If you would like the title, you can download the Gypsy file below.

Well, I think that is it for today. I don’t want to overload you. I will share some more tomorrow Smile


These are files that will work with your Gypsy. They are the welded titles I created in the layouts above. You will need your Gypsy and the corresponding cartridges in order for these files to work.

Okay, I hate to leave anyone out. So I decided to “whip up” a title so that those of you who have “other cutters” can utilize them.

    I know awhile ago the links & such were all messed up and was told you were working on correcting matters. Just thought you may want to know that the indicator for 'Current Cricut Challenge' when clicked on gives an error so I had to keep clicking on 'Older Post' repeatedly to find the 6/6 Graduation challenge.

  2. Thanks for the heads up Melissa. I appreciate it. Jen must have fixed it because it is now working. But we appreciate the "heads-up"  :)

  3. Wow you are so amazing.  You have been busy, busy, busy.
