My Cricut Craftroom Design team post
Hi and welcome to Theme Day at My Cricut Craft Room. Today the DT members can make whatever they like as long as it falls under today's theme of Vacation!!! I chose this day because I have tons of vacation photos to scrapbook and need all the incentive I can get to finish them. So for today I did a one page layout using the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge.
I used my Gypsy to make all my cuts, I usually do. I lay everything out on the mat to check for sizes. I even do this for 2 page layouts just by selecting the 12 x 24 mat to lay everything out. Did you know you can switch back and forth between mat sizes while you are in your project? This is also helpful if you've selected alot of images and they aren't on your mat, just switch your mat to 12 x 24 and drag them over, then switch back to the 12 x 12 mat!.
My dinosaur was cut at 3.97 x 3.24 and then I inked him a little for definition because there aren't any layers on this cut.
The palm tree was cut at 5.18 x 3.48. I cut it twice so I could have a brown trunk. I then inked the leaves for depth.
The yellow strip down the side was ripped and I placed two smaller photos over it.
This was from our trip out west to Arizona last summer. We visited the Grand Canyon Caverns and this dinosaur was out front. We had fun taking turns "running" away from him! That is my daughter running away and my daughter-in-law slowing Rex down by holding his tail LOL
I hope you liked my quick layout today. For more projects like mine please visit My Cricut Craft Room.
Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin!
