My Cricut Craft Room's 100+ Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop


You should have come from..... Tanya at http://nonnascraftcorner.blogspot.com/
If you did not please start at the begining of the hop at
http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/


My project for the hop is a layout taken during our most recent vacation to Anna Maria Island Florida and it features four different cartridges, some chipboard, and shrink plastic.
Here are the cuts, the cartridges they came from and the sizes:

  • Ship - Pack Your Bags - 2.18 (using the Gypsy to size)
  • Waves - Life is a Beach - sized to 1" high and then I welded pieces until the entire wave was 11" in length
  • Background shape - Splish Splash - fit to page and I hid the extra lines so it would only cut the shape shown
  • The word Beached is from Billionaire. I love this cartridge for welding words!! I used the Gypsy to create a shadow also and then cut the shadow from chipboard so the title is layered.
  • Dolphins - these were cut from shrink plastic at 4" and then colored with Prismacolor pencils.
Here is a close up of the ship and the dolphins. I used Glossy Accents for the windows in the ship and on the dolphins, I used my Peachy Keen face stamps. The waves were popped up using lots of dimensional foam squares. I chalked the white strips of waves to add more depth and alternated white wave strips with blue ones. Thanks for visiting my blog. I will be offering a little blog candy. Please follow my blog and leave one comment. Winner will be chosen Tuesday night, Sept 6th using Random.org.

Next you should go to Yvette's blog http://gammascreativecorner.blogspot.com/ and see what fun project she has for you:
