This week's challenge #21 over at Just Buggin is to use a monochromatic color theme on our Cricut project. I wanted to make a brag book for a cousin that recently had her first baby (a boy!) and I decided to go with a blue monochromatic color scheme.
Using three varying sizes of acrylic sheets (Fancy Pants Designs) and some Heidi Grace papers, I made the base for this album. The paper had two coordinating patterns in various shades of blue. The top was a paisley and the bottom was a polka dot. I alternated the two sides and covered the back and front of each acrylic sheet, round the right side corners on each page.
I used my Cricut to cut the large "b" on the cover using Plantin Schoolbook, then attached a flower embellishment and tied a ribbon around the top.
I used Calligraphy Collection to cut the words "baby" and "evan" on the right sides of the first and last pages of the book.
To embellish the brag book, I added coordinating blue flowers and mini flower brads (craft supply), blue cardstock strips trimmed with scallop-edge scissors and layered with the coordinating background papers, and a journaling spot stamped with CTMH's Frame of Mind Acrylic Stamp Set. To finish, I tied ribbons (craft supply) on the two binder rings.
I left a lot of blank space for photos, journaling and mementos.
Thanks for looking! :)
