Love to Scrap!

Here's another LO for Scott's mom's scrapbook, this is Alyssa's 2008 birthday and as you can tell very happy to receive a baby Cricut. :)

I love these self-adhesive crytal embellishments but they are so hard to take off the plastic sheet and get it onto the paper. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do it?

-CS: Bazzill Black, DCWV White Texture, MM Smooth Poppy
-PPs: Karen Foster Design “Love to Scrap”
-Rhinestones: Michaels Recollections
-Cricut carts: Stamped for Love cut at 2” shadowed and Opposites Attract for “to scrap” base feature at 1” and “2008” upright feature cut at 1”

The Butterfly Place

Hi, how's everyone doing?

I'm not sure if I posted the fact that I've been putting together 2 sets of scrapbooks, one for my fiance's mom & step-dad and another for his dad & step-mom. Well I've been working on LOs all the way back to 2007.

This one I did a very similar one for Scott's mom but this one has some slight differences and different papers so it gives it a whole new look! This one is for his dad's book:

-CS: TPC "Sable", “White Texture” and BB “Navel”
-PPs: DCWV Posies Glitter Print “Violet Squiggles Posies”, “Petite Sunrise Posies” and DCWV Old World Stack
-Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox "Creamy Brown", "Dark Brown", "Chestnut Roan", “Amber Clay” and "Olive"
-Pearls: Me & My Big Ideas Clear Rhinestones
-Flowers: Prima Flowers, Gartner Table Confetti Flowers Embossed White Shimmer
-Fonts: "CK Curly" at 36 pts
-Cricut carts: WIMG for the snail cut at 2" with a shadow and TBBM for the Tags @ 3 3/8 with shadow
