No Cutter Needed, School Scrapbook Layout

OK, I will give you the bad news first...
My cutter (crapcut) finally bit the dust. It is doing some crazy things. Only cutting half of my designs....silly bug. So, now I am completely cutterless until I get my new Lynx (hopefully next week)! I thought I was going to go nuts until I came up with a plan to do some "cutterless" scrapbooking and use up some of my supplies that have been just hanging out here forEVER.

The good news:
I recently won a surprise rak from Nana at My Paper Treehouse. When I received it in the mail I was immediately in love with it. It was the "School Spirit" Collection from Crate Paper. I absolutely love everything included in this collection and the colors are wonderful. So, of course, while I was on my "cutterless" scrapbooking adventure I just had to use it. Here are the results. I love this layout!

I had a great time going cutter free on this layout and plan to again very soon....Till my Lynx comes home anyway!!

Thanks Nana for the fabulous collection!!
Pin It!
