New Campin' Critters Cricut Cartridge and Project!

Hello Sunday!  Here is my first project with this month's release of the new cartridges.  This layout uses only one cartridge, Cricut Campin' Critters and features eight different cuts on it.









I added wiggle eyes to the skunk above as I didn't like how the eyes cut out.  For those of you wondering, fortunately, there were no skunks at this campout!  However, there were packs of coyotes that howled most of the night!


I love the badge feature on this cartridge!  The images all layer from the bottom up and were very easy to put together.

Here, I wanted to add more photos to the layout so I used some "flip flaps" from Close to My Heart to do so.  I had to tie that section down with some ribbon.  All paper and cardstock was from Close to My Heart, courtesy of Melanie!


More Hello Thursday new cartridge projects to come!!

  58. This layout is so cute. I love the colors/textures - especially the plaid. Once you have the flip flaps in place and tied, and you put the page in your scrapbook, how do you access the photos? Do you have to take the page out of the protector? (I'm obviously new to scrapbooking, and have thought the same thing about the cute little journaling cards in envelopes!) - any help appreciated! Thanks!
