Who Needs Labels

make it monday blog hopHello there and welcome to our Make it Monday blog hop I hope you enjoyed Alice’s post on how to use artwork on your layouts. My post is all about my aha moment. I am in way to many Facebook groups but that is a story for another post. Any who I always see people asking about labels and where can they get labels for their project life. I was wondering this to and then the light bulb went on!

I figured out how to make my own because who who wants to spend anywhere from $3 to $5 dollars a pop for some labels, not me. Lucky for me I have a Cricut and the awesome Art Philosophy cartridge from Close To My Heart! I also have the Cricut Craft Room Basics, which everyone that uses Cricut Craft Room has. So I figured that I could create my own labels in the Craft Room and get them cut out. Not only could I create my own labels but I could also cut them out in different colors. All I need is cardstock, my Cricut and a little bit of time!

I sat down with my computer and a one track mind of getting some labels created I spent some time in the craft room and made some labels. It was not very time consuming and before I knew it I had a ton of labels cut out and just waiting for me to get scrappy. I cut all my labels out in white but this doesn’t mean that my labels have to stay white!

I went all the way back to last year to get a layout done so that I could show you the labels that I have created. Now I created labels that can be used for 12×12 layouts or traditiaonal layouts as well as for pocket scrapbooking. I just happened to come across these pictures that I took of my daughter learning how to to tie her shoes all by herself and felt that these photos deserved a 12×12 layout.


My favorite part about these labels is that I can make them whatever color I need them to be! Now for the good news I have already gone through all the trouble of creating the cut files for these labels so I am passing them on to you! Click HERE to download the cricut craft room files so that you can create your own lables. If you need to purchase the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge you can do so by clicking HERE and don’t forget if you buy any Cricut cartridge from me this month I will send you a free pack of paper of your choice. This offer is only available through me, once you place your order I will contact you so that I can get your pack of paper sent out to you!

    I use that cartridge a fair amount! But I do it using the cartridge itself or my Gypsy. I need to learn more about using the computer and find a spot to use it upstairs in the craft room (opposite corner of the house from my home office where the computer lives). Cut lots and have them ready and at hand!!

      I love the cartridge I get so much out of it. I can’t wait till I get Artfully Sent so I can make my own pocket scrapbooking cards with it. Plus the cards are awesome! You should give the craft room a try. I design stuff save the files and then cut them later. Just because you need a computer doesn’t mean you have to sit in your craft room to design stuff.

    That is a brilliant way to get all the labels you need. I bet one sheet of paper could make bunches.

      Yes Gina one little 12×12 sheet of paper does make a ton of labels and I don’t have to spend tons of money to get them!

    I love making my own die cuts, too! When I have extras, I toss them in a drawer in the kitchen and can write out quick love notes to put in my girls’ lunch boxes! Thanks for being part of the Make It Monday hop!

    I love title labels on pages. It’s descriptive and fun.
