Cricut Cut Background

And the last layout made especially for the 6x6 Paper Pad Scrapinar is...

this layout with a photo of my parents taken on my Mother's birthday this spring.

For the background, I cut a design from the Storybook cartridge on the Cricut.  I got a lot of questions about the size of this piece during the Scrapinar.  It is 10" square.

I used several papers from the Teresa Collins Fabrications 6x6 pad to fill in the back in different sections.  The video shows how.

The video shows also that was the easy part. The challenge for me on this page was figuring out what to do with the photo and the arrangement.  So, I never created a sketch for this one.

In the end, I kept it pretty simple. The great photo and the background were really the main focus.

Watch at YouTube

All of the layouts from the Scrapinar are shown on this Pinterest board.  You can also find the blog posts by clicking on the "6x6 Paper Pads" tag on the right side of my blog.  I'll continue to add pages to the board as I do pages using 6x6 paper pads.

Thanks for following along in this series!


  1. Lisa, this technique was one of my favorite for the Scrapinar. It seemed to be a simple and fast way to get a very elegant background. Thanks for sharing it!

  2. I really like that die cut! What a lovely page.

  3. Such a pretty layout.
