Here are some pages of the Story book that I made for my Niece this year who turned "6" on March 7th. The book was created using my Cricut and a 8 x 8 scrapbook. I mainly used the paperdoll cartridge for this as well as George. I was alot of fun to create and well worth the effort.
A search for the right paper was important to the over all look of the book. A glittery paper was used for the coral. Some fishes were accented with wiggle eyes. Stickers were also used in the background to give more of a under sea look to the project. Paper with a shine was used for the mermaid. With this type of paper the scales showed up very well. The under sea tunnel was created with a mountain from paper dolls and a piece of acetate was used in order to see into it.
I live in Rochester, NY and I have been a crafter for years. I especially love Machine Embroidery and creating items with my Cricut Expression. My cat Merlin is a recent addition to my family and loves to help with crafts and computer work. Merlin often lays on the desk between me and the computer and sometimes chases the mouse pointer.
