Valentine's Day Coloring Book

Hi, All -
I shock myself at times....I have been wanting to attempt a coloring book by using my Cricut and the marker sets I got a year and half ago....Well, I actually did it! I made a coloring book for my nephew with some of his favorite things for Valentine's Day. I designed it on the Cricut Craft Room.  Had the "cuts" drawn on plain white cardstock and cut the pages to 4" x 6".  Next, I scored them at 1/4 inch for easy opening of the book when bound.  Lastly, I used my Your Story to bind the cover and the pages and added a little vinyl for the cover.

Hubby got a little home made goodness today, too!  I gave him this shape card that I made using Jaded Blossom Stamps and Lovestruck 2010 cartridge.  My first ever shape card.

What a great idea! I may need to buy some markers and try it. But I do love the idea of making a coloring book with YourStory, thanks again.
