Cricut Goes Back to School

Well Summer is over and it’s time to go back to school. My daughter had an assignment over the Summer to read a book and turn in a book report on the first day of school. Part of the book report was to make a scrapbook page featuring characters and events from the story. That sounded like too much to fit on a single page, so we decided to make a mini scrapbook instead and give each character their own little page. Nothing makes a project like this easier than the cricut.

Here is the cover of the book. Nothing fancy, just simple and to the point. birthday 001_edited-1 [1280x768]

The title was cut using the Pooh Font cartridge. Next, we move on to Stuart’s page. We cut the little mouse from Create a Critter.

Next we move on to Snowbell the cat. For this we used Four Legged Friends.

For Margolo the bird we used one of the birds from 50 states.

We also wanted to include some events from the book, so we cut Stuart’s car from Everyday Paperdolls.

The city skyline was cut from Going Places.

It was so much fun to work with my daughter and use the cricut for her school project. It also gave me a chance to dig out some cartridges I haven’t used in a while and kind of rediscover them.

Also, please remember that just because you don't see a cartridge listed on the Cutters Creek site doesn't mean Kim can't get it ordered for you. All you have to do is ask.


  1. This is so cute Mindy. I love it. I wish I had had a Cricut when my kids were doing these kind of projects.
