How to Use Your Cricut to Make Your Scrapbook Embellishments.

Good morning crafter's Penny here today to show you how I used my Cricut to make all of my scrapbook page accents.

I made this layout of my granddaughter Madison and I loved the photo but I couldn't find matching page embellishments to match her clothing since most girl embellishments are pink, and I need a dark navy, and dark red. So I took out my cricut die cut machine and went to work cutting out exactly what I needed.

I knew I wanted her name at the bottom of the layout so I cut out these flowers and flags. To glue all these tiny pieces together I used my favorite glue by ScraPerfect called the Best Glue Ever.

This glue when combined with the  No Clog Writing Caps

Makes for the perfect gluing tool for those tiny letters that are glued onto the flag. The fine tip on the glue bottle let's you put glue only on the areas you need glue, and nowhere else. It's truly amazing. 

I used the same glue to glue down all the embellishments on this page. It's super easy to use, dries quickly, and due to the no clog writing cap it uses very little glue.  It will also glue wood, metal, fabric, plastic, and of course paper.

So the next time you need certain colors for your layout just grab your glue bottle and your die cut machine and you can make your own embellishments in no time. Till next time happy scrapping. Love Penny
