Fun-Fair!

Howdy! I love this time of year, the warm days, crisp nights and then weekend full of fun at the local county fairs, late summer at it’s best! I didn’t bring my camera to the fair this year because I took over a hundred photos last year and decided it was high time I scrapbooked them:

I used my new Fun Fair SVG set to cut the tickets (both single and the border strip) with my Cricut and SCAL software (SCAL on sale for $59.95 for a short time!)and my On the Line digital stamps to make the banner.

Here is a close up of the first page, I laid out my photos with shape collage software and added ribbons to the flowers on the bottom of the page. Stamps and Die cuts are from Lindsay's stamp Stuff.

Here is a tip: I used digital paper and printed the paper on the inside triangle of the banner only. I layered my stamp over digital pattern paper from Lettering Delights (all their pattern paper packs are on sale for $1 so stock up now!) then used the “magic wand” tool to remove the inside of the banner so I could see the paper, then I clicked around the banner, an inverted my selection, flattened the layers and hit ctrl+x to cut the paper pieced banner and pasted it as many times as I wanted in a new document. I only printed the paper I needed, no wasted ink or paper and it is easier than trying to print on pattern paper scraps AND I can make it match my layout!

Here is the second page, love to cram in a lot of photos!

This page qualifies for the following challenges: By the Cute and Girly (indian summer), The Craft Garden (Bunting/Banner),  Daisy Doodles , ginger Loft (anything goes), Flourishes (tickets), Lexis Challenge (flower Power), Really Reasonable Ribbon (flowers) and  Tuesday Throwdown (celebrate fall).

Here is a peek at the sets I used:

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
