You can tell where I'm at in my scrapbooking, by my posts. Yes, I'm in December, 2020! This was a fun layout to do as I followed a tutorial from Scrapbooking With AnnMarie. To make the "bricks", first cut your cardstock to 11" square. From that you will cut two strips of 3.75" and one of 3/5". From those strips, cut one at 6.5 and the other at 4.5. The white cardstock is cut down to 10.5" square and all "bricks" are cut 1/4" smaller on all dimensions above.
I used two coordinating patterned papers for this layout, white cardstock and the ornament embellishments were cut using CutCardStock Gold Glitter Paper. This glitter paper is fabulous to use because there is no glitter mess to clean up afterwards!
When I know I'm creating embellishments using the Cricut, I'll create the page in Design Space so I get the measurements right. Here's how it looks in DS. I don't usually cut the squares and rectangles (and I didn't for this layout), just the embellishments and title.
The paper cut smoothly on the Cricut. I chose glitter paper and then changed the pressure to More. It's actually a pretty easy layout but the "bricks" give it such an awesome look!
