ECU 2011 - Graduation layout

I generally don't care for papers that have the specific background images and you have to scrap around them. But this time I made an exception, for one I couldn't think of a way to cut it up and use it and for two...well it just seemed to work out okay for this layout. It isn't anything elaborate but it still works for me.
Supplies Used: 
Cricut Varsity cartridge
Cricut Carasoul cartridge
DCWV patterned paper
Various cardstock
Creative Imagination brads
Spareparts Brads

The Varsity cartridge is great for school type layouts and projects. I am thinking I need to use it to cut some material and make myself a sweatshirt of my Alma Mater but let's face wont happen. And why wont' it happen?? BECAUSE I AM TOO LAZY! *okie is hoping her readers really are starting to understand how truly lazy okie is*.
I used Design Studio to hide contour on the stripes for the black layer. Since Carousel is a lite there aren't many options for layering and DS comes in handy for such things. Yes I know I can do it on the Gypsy but come on guys!! Ya'll know I don't like using that thing!


  1. I'm with you! I love using DS for all kinds of stuff and it's so much easier since I can actually see lots of stuff while I'm doing it! Love the simple color scheme and did you stamp the edge, cross-stitch it or is that part of the paper?

  2. I don't like using papers with a specific background either but you did a great job. You really need to use your gypsy. It stressed me out for a long time and know I use it all the time. Once you get used to it you will love it.

  3. I'm totally with ya on that too Okie! DS all the WAY! I now use my DS for everything then transfer it to the Gypsy to cut! Just like you I'm LAZY and I don't have to go find the cartridges so that's why I just transfer everything I create in DS to my gypsy! LOL
    LOVE the LO too!
