Hey yall! Happy Saturday! The hubby and I are veggin' out on the couch today watching football and playing Lego Batman on the XBOX, but I wanted to hop online and share a project I finished up yesterday with yall. One of my good friends Sheila, from She's A Sassy Lady, inspired this idea. As you may know, Sheila hosts videos every Saturday on her blog that focus on learning more about your Cricut Gypsy. They are called Gypsy Made Simple Saturdays. If you haven't checked 'em out, I highly recommend that you do. They are awesome! I have learned so much in the short time I have had my Gypsy.
Anyways, a few weeks back during one of videos, Sheila showed us how she keeps track of all of the images on the various Cricut cartridges. She keeps a binder. I just adored this idea from the minute I saw it and I knew I had to make me one. Now, unless I want to, I no longer have to dig out booklets and flip through them when I'm designing/cutting with my Cricut. So I picked up a 1/2" binder at Wal Mart and decided to make a cover for it. You know me...have to decorate up everything. I used the Cricut Create A Critter and Lyrical Letters cartridges and some patterned paper from Imaginisce for my binder. Here is the outside:
My little hooty tooty...this is my favorite cut on this cartridge!!!
This little deer is a close second to being a fave though.
Now, for the inside, I printed off each of the sample sheets (found HERE) for all of the cartridges that I own. I then slipped them into the page protectors that you can buy at any store. I got mine at Wal Mart. I love these page protectors for 2 reasons. One, they make turning the page so smooth and easy. Second, they protect the pages. Since I will use this on a regular basis, it's nice to know that they won't get messed up from daily use. I just love this idea because I have all of my cartridges right at my fingertips...no more digging around forever finding what I need.
Thank you for the inspo Sheila! You rock!
Have a great weekend yall! Happy Scrappin'!!!
