Love card made using the When I Was A Kid cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Provo Craft have two brand new cartridges that they are giving away for free for a whole week! Both of these cartridges are fantastic and you are going to want to partake playing with them this week. They are called When I Was A Kid and The First Few Years. They are both very scrapbook centric, however, I found lots of card elements as well. I will be using both of these cartridge over the next few weeks as there is lots to show!

Coincidentally, I have a card made using the When I Was A Kid cartridge. This cartridge is probably my favorite of the two, but that is probably because I do not have any babies in the house at the moment. I will be making layouts using this cartridge (as it makes doing so super simple), so stay tuned!

Now, this card is layered layered layered. I love the look and find it so easy to do this when designing with the Cricut Craft Room. The reason for this must be the malleability of the shapes in the Cricut Craft Room. If you have still not tried it, give it a whirl and tell me what you think!

I love this coral, navy, and aqua color scheme so much. I am considering using these colors to decorate my craft room. This paper pack is from Fancy Pants and the cardstock is from Close To My Heart (Smoothie, Hollyhock, and Outdoor Denim).
The stamp I used for the sentiment is called Hello Blooms.
