Summertime is the perfect time to visit your local theme park! As a girl, I remember that one of my favorite things about going with my family each year was getting the opportunity to try all of the fun treats and food! I particularly had my eye on the cotton candy. It was such a treat to carry around my very own and I didn’t even mind the sticky mess it created on my face and fingers. I’m sure my parents didn’t feel the same way, but I had a blast diving my face into that soft pink fluff.
Along with the darling western images contained on the County Fair cartridge, there are several fun images of carnival food . . . perfect for scrapping those theme park photos or creating a fun invitation to a carnival-themed party. Below is a page I created using the soft drink, corn dog, and cotton candy images.
The scalloped circle shape is from the Lacy Labels Lite cartridge. I added a circle on top cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I wanted my cuts to have a little texture, so I added some fun embossing with my Cuttlebug machine. The background circle is embossed with the Number Collage embossing folder, and the cotton candy is embossed with the ever-classic Swiss Dots embossing folder.
One of my very favorite Cricut fonts is included on the Nate’s ABC’s cartridge. It’s a great basic font that works for all kinds of projects. Here I cut each letter out from a different color paper/cardstock to match the colorful ticket border.

The school year is winding down for many of us and I always feel the urge to get caught up on my kids’ school albums before they are home for the summer and we are busy with vacation plans. I pulled out my Cricut Expression Machine, Cricut cartridges, Cuttlebug Machine and a few embossing folders and got to work!
This year my daughter served in the student government. It wasn’t always fun or easy for her, but it was very rewarding. Especially, for us as parents. I was proud that my daughter was dependable and did her best in all of her student government assignments. She thought of those around her and how she could enrich their junior high experience instead of thinking about herself all the time. She had experiences that I couldn’t have taught her on my own and I am so grateful for that.
My daughter’s school mascot is the eagle. I used the eagle from the Summer Celebrations cartridge and added him to a series of layered circles embossed with my Cuttlebug Machine and the Chevron embossing folder from the Cuttlebug Starter Set . I added a kraft flag to the eagle’s claw holding my daughter’s initial . . . a subtle way to show her that we are her biggest fans.
Next, I created my title. I used my Gypsy to elongate a banner image from the Jubilee Cartridge. The font for the word “Eagle” comes from the Varsity Letter cartridge. . . perfect for school-themed pages! The circle with the star image is from the Sophisticated Cartridge. I added a decorative brad, stamped camera, and a stamped border strip.
I wanted a school-themed journaling block for my school-themed page. I used my Gypsy (or Cricut Craft Room), to hide the smiley face and elongate the notebook image from the Simply Charmed Cartridge. The star border and “School Zone” phrase were created using the Graphically Speaking Cartridge. I added embossing to the School Zone phrase by embossing it with my Cuttlebug Machine and the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. Stamping, label stickers, and decorative brads & rhinestones add some personality.
Finally, I wanted my photo to have a special treatment on this page. I decided to cut a lace number background using the Art Philosophy Cartridge by Close to My Heart.
Thanks for stopping by today! Before your kids are home for the summer, I hope you will take a day or two to capture the memories they have made this past school year with a scrapbook page. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the end of the school year.
See you again soon!
