My Little Ninjas and Nevermore

I have had these photos of my littles going to a fun amusement park in Japan where they actually were able to dress up and learn some ninja skills. Even my little Em learned how to use a bow and arrow while dressed in a beautiful traditional kimono.

Using the grays, blacks, and purple (new eggplant, isn't it lovely) were perfect with the photos.

Products used:
Nevermore My Reflections paper packet (X7198B)
Black cardstock (1386)
Slate cardstock (X5930)
Black ink (Z2015)
4"x6" Flip Flap (Z4114)
Documenting Moments (D1647) stamp set

The layout is from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 pattern 1. The flow of the photos across the page highlighted the day full of swords, karate, and more. The title is broken into two sections, one curved over the other. The title was created in the Cricut Design Space using a circle to line up the letters. Below are some cool tips I learned playing with it.

Using a 4" x 6" flip flap was perfect for the double matting.

Using the National Stamping Month Hello Life Scrapbook stamp set tab was the perfect handle for opening and closing the flip flap.

The flip flap has not been attached as the layout must be in the page protector so the flip flap may be attached on the outside of the page protector.

More photos and journaling opportunities are found under the flip flap.

Bring in a circle and size it to the preferred size.  Type in your title and click on the isolate letters to ungroup them -
Curve the letters around the circle and attach.

Click on the eye icon to hide the circle and now your title will cut curved - this would be great for vinyl so you can keep it curved onto the transfer paper. I used it to help keep my curve when I placed the letters on the layout.

There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
