Using Up Your "Old" Style Scrapbook Papers

   Do you have some "I want to use this on a special layout" scrapbook papers?   Have you found yourself keeping them for years?  In my sorting through my papers, I found some of these "hang on to" papers, that I just don't see myself using now.  I was so thrilled to turn the paper over and see a completely blank "canvas" to do whatever I wanted with.   SOOOO....I decided to use my Cricut Imagine and make my own scrapbook paper.  I had a certain project in mind, that of a covered composition book that is now my Recovery Journal.
    I used the Cricut Imagine Yummy cartridge to print the papers, and also cut out the cupcake for the front of the journal.  I laminated the cupcake and made a pocket out of the cupcake wrapper for the actual cupcake to slide in and out.  Laminating it made a perfect dry erase memo spot!!!!   :-)

    Don't you just love it when you can really use what you have?   YAY!!!
