I first discovered Mosaic scrapbooking at the Creating Keepsakes Convention some years ago. Sadly I ignored the products for several years(!). In 2010 I became better acquainted with Tammie Potter's Mosaic Moments products and found that I love them! I like to include a few mosaic pages in each scrapbook that I complete - just to add a different style and because as I stated above, you can include a lot of photos on the mosaic pages.
I selected the photos that I planned to use and then trimmed the photos to show just the part I wanted to use. I made the photos fit into the grid. I filled in the blank areas with strips and squares cut from coordinating cardstock.
On these four pages I was able to use 21 photos and two pieces of memorabilia in addition to themed cardstock as fillers. I went with a very casual style on these four pages, even making hand written notes in the "filler" margins. I really like how the pages came out as they feature people or elements that I want to remember from CHA.
While I only used my Cricut to cut the title elements on one of my four pages, tomorrow I will be sharing a layout here and on the Everyday Cricut blog that will show you an easy way to create mosaic layouts using the cricut machines. I plan to show share the way I created the Cricut Mosaic plus share a bit about the two cartridges I used.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you again tomorrow for the Cricut Mosaic Layout!
