Everyday Moments Video Collab

Forever Friends Reimagined

Our Creative Design team was so excited about the New Everyday Moments Cricut Collection, that we decided to create an additional YouTube Video Hop to share with you this month.  We were each challenged to make a project using the pre-designed Forever Friends Layout in the Everyday Moments collection.  When you have finished watching my video tutorial, you can click on the next video in the hop.  A complete list of the Creative Design Team & their creations can be found here on my blog

I had so much fun creating this layout using images from the Forever Friends design and a few additions from other images in the Everyday Moments collection. Before I tell you a little more about my layout, let me remind you that the Everyday Moments Cricut collection is ONLY AVAILABLE through the link on my website. You cannot get these images in Access or through the Cricut shopping site. 

While viewing my video tutorial, you will notice that I did use quite a few images from the Forever Friends design. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the two layouts. Do you see that little pink torn piece of paper?  That is what I used for the yellow base of my layout! 

Along with a few additional images from other designs in the Everyday Moments Collection, I also added a faux stitched border to my layout using the Perforation Blade in my Cricut Maker. It’s very faint in this photo, but if you look outside the dotted border you will be able to see that line I created to look like stitching.

To keep this design bright and summery, I chose to use the new Mix-Ins paper packet.  Those bright Canary & Sapphire shades went well with her red summer dress and the floral design of the layout. 

I hope you take a few minutes to “hop” through all of our Creative Design Team Designs. Each one of these talented ladies did an amazing job with their layouts.  You are going to learn SOO MUCH from each one of their tutorials.

Here is a List of the Items I Used Today

Create a Folded Chevron Border for Your Scrapbook Layout

Welcome to another Creative Design Team Video Colab!  This month, we are treating you to a variety of Fancy Fold designs you can make using your Close to My Heart products.  For my Fancy Fold project, I am showing you how to use the Yesterday & Today papers to make this Folded Chevron border. There is even a Cricut tutorial you can follow, showing you how to create this border in Design Space.

The base for this layout was created by splattering two pieces of French Vanilla cardstock with Almond Ink and Gold Shimmer in a spray pen. I used the same ink mixture to create some distressed butterflies.  After spraying the Art Philosophy cut butterflies, I carefully scrunched them up, then opened them up flat to dry. 

Once I had adhered all the background paper strips down, I began creating the Chevron Border.  In my video I show you how to fold each piece by hand, but I found that creating the pieces in Design Space was more efficient, plus it gave me an excuse to play with my new Cricut Maker. 

The Vintage Family layout came together quickly and was easy to embellish using the Yesterday & Today Stickers, Vellum Die Cuts, and Foil Die Cuts.  This is one of my favorite parts of creating a layout – adding all the layers of beautiful vintage designs. 

Here is a little tip: Follow the “Rule of Threes” when you are adding your die cuts.  

If you look at my layout above, you can see that the butterflies, vellum shapes, and stickers all form a triangle.  This allows the eye to flow through the layout and give it a balanced  design.  

I hope that you enjoyed today’s project and that you were inspired to try this Fancy Fold Chevron Border.  After you have viewed my tutorial, make sure to continue through the rest of the Creative Design Team videos.
