Smiles Scrapbook Page


I shouldn’t have walked down the scrapbook paper aisle at Hobby Lobby. You see, I’m a sucker for buying scrapbook paper. My stash keeps getting bigger and bigger.  But, I saw this beautiful combination of purple and green that I just couldn’t resist.  My habit(addiction) of scrapbooking isn’t cheap, but it’s better than spending money on booze or drugs.  I guess it’s how I get my high.

I just had to buy this  great paper  since I loved, and it was 1/2 off.  Hobby Lobby always gets me with their 1/2 sales.  After all it just cost $1.25 plus tax.  So I came home excited to make a new scrapbook page.

As soon as I got home I searched through the images on my *Cricut Explore to find the perfect ones  for my new paper.  While I was in Florida recently at an HSN outlet I purchased an adapter to make my Cricut Explore wireless when using my iPad.  With it came a cartridge called Anne’s Flourish Cards and Embellishments.  That’s where I found the My Smiles quote and the frames to use for my new layout.

For the quote I used my gold Cricut Pen.


My layout is ready to add smiling pictures of my four grandchildren.  How do you like my new layout?


*About the Cricut Explore

Here’s a little overview about this awesome crafting machine called a Cricut Explore.  No, it’s not a machine looking for a certain kind of insect.  It is a cutting machine that will cut all kinds of shapes and images out of paper, card stock, vinyl, and even fabric.  From tiny images to images up to 24″ X 12″ can be cut.  You can even upload you own image and fonts.

There are all kinds of instructional videos on You Tube that could help you learn how to use the awesome machine.   If you have any questions about using the Cricut Explore feel free to ask me.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my scrapbooking hobby.  More to come later.?
