Baby Album Using Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot
A baby album with elements cut with my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot lately to make a first year baby album for my little niece for Christmas.
I found a great set of baby cut files by The Scrapping Table. These files were bought with a subscription, however, there are tons of free files out there you can use with your SCAL cutting software and Cricut. For this project, I just wanted to find files already grouped together for me, and I loved these. All her files are well worth the small subscription fee. The files are easy to use, stored by theme, and clean to cut. I also enjoy the emails she sends out with links to how-tos on updates to the SCAL software as Craft Edge releases them. I am not being paid to endorse her site, I just love it.
SLIDESHOW OF ENTIRE ALBUM:
My favorite adhesive so far for piecing is tape dot roller. I just got a pink ATG gun on sale at Jo-Ann’s, so we’ll see how that goes.
INFO ON FALL .SVG FILES:
The autumn title (see slideshow above) is a free file from a cut file internet seller called www.svgcuts.com. They also have great files for small charge bundled by theme (like cartridges), so that they are tested and easy to find. I’ve bought several from there usually very reasonable prices with great sales (join their mailing list for free weekly files and promotions). I created the Halloween title myself by welding letters together in SCAL with a pumpkin welded in the middle for the “O”. The scarecrow is the most complex paper piecing I did, but I had made it for fun during some down time the previous fall–he was just waiting for a page!
SPRING SVG FILES:.
The Easter embellishments are for her first Easter photos this spring. Everyone who sees the cut embellishments can’t resist holding onto them and rubbing them for a while! Even me. We laugh at each other at our scrap group…you just have to hold them! You just can’t help but want to touch and hold them. I know, it’s crazy, but textiles are just that way!
The donkey and cross are three layer file–they look great and were easy to assemble.
SCAL gets two thumbs up from me!
