Scrapbook Page – The Buffalo Stampede

This post is for a scrapbook page about my harrowing adventure with buffalo or bison.  Ken says they aren’t buffalo.  I’m going to call them buffalo.  This is also a general tutorial on making scrapbook pages with cricut.

Background Story

The story behind this is that we were touring Bear Country USA because Cordelia wanted to see the baby bears (That is my next page).  I had been looking for buffalo the whole trip and not seeing any.  We arrived at lunch time and the staff had just laid out the buffalo food.  So all the buffalo were making a beeline for the food and our car was between them and their meal.  They just strolled past our car and one of them tried to head butt the car.  I could have reached out and petted them if I hadn’t been afraid they were going to stick their head in if I rolled down the window.

Scrapbooking about your vacation is a common theme for scrapbook pages.  I hope to show you the versatility of Design Space when creating pages.  You can do cutouts on the top page that show through to the bottom page color, cutouts for your pictures, write on the page, or make your own embellishments.  I chose to draw a border on my pages this time. Select graphics and embellishments that go with your page to make it special to you. Access has so many images I’m sure you will find what you want.  Get access here if you don’t have it.

What You Need:
        • Download File
        • 2 sheets of 12 X 12 cardstock
        • tape and liquid glue
        • washi tape
        • various scraps of cardstock
        • pictures
Cutting the Paper

One of the 12 X 12 cardstock sheets can be patterned paper but not both.  It is just too confusing.  Drawing on the page is easy and the cricut does all the work.

The buffalo embellishments can be cut from any color that goes with your color palette.  I chose a leaf pattern to go with the wildlife theme of the page.

Design Space cuts the top page to 11.5 X 11.5 inches, making a 1/4 inch border around the whole page.

Assembly

This time I chose to put the pictures on top of my top sheet and secure them with washi tape.  I LOVE washi tape.  It helps hold down your pictures while adding a colorful border to you photos.  If you haven’t used it before you simply must try it!

You can attach the two pages together with the top page centered on the bottom page first or after you have attached everything.   Glue the embellishments and photos to the top page where you want them.

 Your page is finished.
