Cricut Design Studio Word/Shape Book

Last night I started to work on a word/shape book in the Cricut Design Studio Program.
I  really love it  because its pretty easy to use and I can make some fantastic things...
I would love to get the SCAL program and a drawing tablet so I could design my own stuff  eventually but for now this is great.
Anyway here is a screenshot of the album I am working on ... mind you  some things pictured ( like the waves) will go on one of the pages and not where it is pictured... this is a few of the layers that I didn't uncheck when I did my preview.
 I am going to cut this out to see what it looks like and if I need to make some adjustments to it.  Hopefully I will post some pictures of what I end up with  soon!

Cartridge Details:
A Childs Year, Everyday Paper Dolls, Plantin School Book

Everyday paper Dolls ( Cricut )

The Paper Dolls Dress up Cartridge is one of My favorite Cartridges.
 It really has so many extras that  you would never know were there until you  opened the box... or had the Design Studio Program ( trial or actual) . I recently Bought the Everyday paper dolls and it has somethng for everyone on it as well. 
Anyway ...
I made this set of Paper Dolls for Griffin's class bulletin board when he was the Star of the week. 
I cut everything out in white cardstock and colored in with the Prisma markers drew the faces in myself.  I used chalks to color in the eyes and to give the cheeks  a bit of a glow.
The comic book style word bubbles with our names in them are Stampin' Up.
Thanks for looking !

MyGraficO Design team 1st Project

Hello to you all!
I am so Excited to kick off the New Year with a fun Project that I did for the MyGraficO digital Arts and Crafts Store Design team!

Our Challenge?
To incorporate something recycled in our project.

I save all kinds of stuff for scrapbooking!

Our Stamp Set?

I made this Double LO for Rory's Birthday that is later this month.
Here you see the first 2 of many LO pages for Rory's 1st Birthday.
This is going to be the beginning of the Birthday Pages
I love this Little Lion Hehehe... he is so cute
I know I will use him over and over again!

I just bought my first 2 Martha Stuart Punch Around the Page sets
This one is Scalloped Three Dot from the Holiday Collection.
I really like it and I'm so glad I bought it!

This page will have a picture of Rory and some journaling about his birthday.
I think it's very fun & will be great for the Professional
photos we are getting done later this month.

Recycled paper clip adhered with mini clear dots added a Birthday tag to it
I added some foam pop dots to the
clown boy so I could easily add a picture and journaling later.

Clown boy colored with Prisma Colored Pencils,
Some of the color detail is lost in the picture but still looks OK.

Punched balloons & recycled string raised up on foam pop dots to give dimension.

Re-Used Items =

string & paper clip

Prisma Colored Pencils,

Martha Stuart Punch Around the Page Scallop Three Dot set,
