Paisley Cricut Cartridge Scrapbook Pages and Card 45

Yay for Youtube being back to normal!

Sorry I didn’t get this up last night, but it’s only 11 on Tues! šŸ™‚

This video features two scrapbook pages I had already made using the new Paisley Cricut Cartridge.Ā  Then I show you how I layered all of the Cricut pieces together to make an embellishment for the front of this cute card.Ā  We also took a Sizziz embossing folder, inked it up and used it in the Cuttlebug Machine.Ā  I think you’ll like the fun results if you haven’t seen this before!

Items Used:

  • Paisley Cricut Cartridge
  • DCWV – Nana’s Kids and Glitter Stack Paper
  • Best Occasions (Walmart brand) Metallic Cardstock and Brights Card Stock
  • Stampin’ Up Rich Razzleberry (any brand or color you like will be totally fine!)
  • Zig 2way glue Squeeze and Roll
  • Pop Dots
  • Favorite Embossing folder – I used Spring Large Flowers from Sizzix – Did you know you can use them in your Cuttlebug?
  • A few brads of your color choice

    Your son is such a cutie.
    I just got the Paisley cartridge so was pleased when you decided to demo it because I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet.
    Love that dragonfly, my daughter is going to dead impressed with it as she is really into dragonflies. I can’t wait to show her. I bet it is the first thing she cuts when she gets her Create from Santa.

    Hi Megan, thanks for being so honest about the cartridge, the layering and the card function. I’ll have to check it out…it does have some of the cutest images! ~Sharon

  • Sarita

    I have this cart & I love the card function! I also prefer a cart with layers as it adds so much dimension to my projects. Thanks for the great video.

  • Mikila Gomez

    So cute. Do you have an area where you put your favorites and where to get them? I’ll buy from you if you sell them. Thank you for all the great ideas.

  • Melissa

    I am a new follower to Above Rubies. I really appreciate the videos. I just got the Paisley cartridge this weekend and I LOVE it, but I don’t really understand the card function either. I hope you can help us with some ideas for the tab card feature. Thanks again!

  • Megan Gravener

    My favorites as in cartridges??? I buy them when I find them on sale or ebay – I usually check CustomCrops as well. I don’t sell them yet – but I am thinking about offering a small store of some of my favorite products – but that more than likely won’t happen for a while šŸ™‚

  • Kathryn

    What a cute dragonfly! Learned a new technique of embossing with the folder inked up. Loved you layout with the sunglasses. The shiny black paper is a perfect fit. TFS.

  • Deb P

    You did a great job of the card. I just did a Christmas card for my sister, but I am waiting for my cricut, so no easy task. It turned out ok though.
    Megan, I have seen your numbering system for your cricut pages, but I don’t remember where I saw it. Can you help me out?
    Thanks a bunch:)

  • Maria

    Thanks for sharing some of the things you’ve done with this cart. Loved the cute dragonfly card.
    Hubby got me this cart on BF, but I can’t play with it until after Christmas.

  • Mary Rievley

    What a cute little boy, Megan. He is adorable. My youngest is 16. My, it really does go by fast. I didn’t believe people when they told me that. Anyway, your card is so pretty. Santa is giving me a Cuttlebug this year, so I can’t wait to try out the technique you showed. I haven’t seen it that way before. Does the folder clean easily? So appreciative of your work. ~Mary R.

  • Cindy

  • ShawnfromMN`

    Wow thank you for sharing another wonderful video!! I love the paisley cartridge – another on my list to acquire!! Your son is adorable!!! Please advise how you clean your sissix plates after applying the ink – this is a great technique and i would love to try it!! Thanks again for all your time and talents!

  • Megan Gravener

    I am so glad you are all enjoying this cartridge/card! šŸ™‚

    To clean the embossing folder all you have to do is wipe it with a baby wipe or simple dish soap and water after you use it.

    I recommend using a dye based ink on it because it cleans off the easiest…

    The only ink that you should NOT use is the Staz On ink brand – it tends to really make a mess and would as my guess would be really STAY on there šŸ˜‰

    Have a GREAT day!

  • Diane

    Thanks for making your videos so easy to follow. I’m putting the paisley cart on my wish list! And I think I’ll try some shimmer/shiny papers on my next project.

  • Kathy Hunter

    Love the card. Your son is so precious:). I too am adding this cart to my wish list. I am glad you showed inking of the embossing folder. Other people have mentioned this, but I didn’t know quite what they meant. Thanks to you, now I do. I love your videos. Thanks for all your tips.


  • Rhonda H

    I have the same question as Deb P…with 45 cartridges and counting, I need a numbering system. Could you link us to where you explained it before?


  • Bonnie

    loved your tutorial Megan! Have you gotten the Picturesque cartridge yet? I’ve pre-ordered it and can’t wait till it becomes available!

  • Linda

    Thanks for the pasley info. Just got my machine this week and am trying to decide which cartridges I can’t live without! I like the demos that use one cartridge. Later I’ll probably like with more, but only have 4 and 3 ordered! Having a ball watching your demo. Thanks!

  • nana

    Just the way I like them…simple and pretty…thanks..

    say the little boy is so handsome.. can I win him? no? *sigh* had to ask.. lol you are lucky to have a cutie…


  • Barbra

    OOPS! What I was trying to say is that I LOVE simple! I’d never thought of inking my embossing folder before running it thru’ the machine. Genius!
    BTW: Your son is adorable!!!!!
