Here is my first project made with July's Cloudy Day kit. I made a mini album with the help of my cricut. This was a mini kit but why it is said to MINI is beyond me! It was full of Crate paper, GSD paper, Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments and WOWEE!!!!
And here is my second project for you all to see. Again, made with the leftovers from the July mini kit (LEFTOVERS FOR CRYIN OUT LOUD!). I altered my Starbucks carrier and thought I could use it for markers and colored pencils.
