American Crafts Neopolitan Layout

I started this layout so long ago and finally made it happen this week. First I didn't have the sky vellum paper for the background and so I just put everything away, until I found a lady on FB that happen to be selling the paper and just received her package last week! So happy that I actually was able to find some still at this late date! Love that when that happens!! I special cut the title with my Cricut, and my Gypsy to turn the letters, and inserted them onto the banner. This was new for me to try and even learned to turn each letter so that they flowed like the banner. No, I haven't splurged for a Silhouette because I still seem to find a way to use the Cricut E-2instead. Anyway, because of Paper Crafter's Challenge for using a variety of fonts and words, and a large title separate from the page, this is the one layout I really wanted to make!!  Adding letters to the scooter, tags with writing on the front and backs, and the title meets those criteria, I think. Also, made a list of When, What, Where on the orange tag, which PCC also had mentioned.
Here's PaperCrafter's Corner Challenge:
Supplies: Cricut Cartridges used: Scooter (Sweethearts), Banner (Wedding), Font (Alphalicious). Paper: American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Silver lining (Vellum sky), Dreamy Days (far right side), Various cardstocks for cutting,  Echo Park (Orange dot). Gypsy used to make them the size I wanted and manipulated. Also, Cricut Explore for the scooter because I don't have that one, and done using another friends computer. Don't you love how we all share each other's things!!? Also, tags from my stash, and Scotch tape runner and Scrapbook Adhesive 3L for foam dots to pop up banner. Viva D├ęcor for headlight on scooter.


  1. Great pages! I especially love that you tucked the Word of God in there! You go, Girl!

  2. This is a great layout Beverly! I love the picture pocket and the bike is adorable!

  3. Great layout - I love the Cricut cut banner! I am glad I am not the only person who starts layouts and then puts them aside for extended periods!
