Welcome to another fabulous challenge at Exploring Cricut. The challenge for this week is to create a card, layout, or papercraft using at least 3 cricut cuts, 2 pattern papers, and 1 embellishment of a summer fun activity, vacation, etc. You would think with all the options available this would be a piece of cake. Nope, I need something more specific. I'm a little ADD that way.
For my project I decided to do a layout (I couldn't figure out how to get three cricut cuts and an embellishment on a card). My best friend has asked me to come down and swim with her and the babies this summer so I decided to make a layout for that activity (I will make sure I'm not in any of the pictures because I SWORE I would never be caught dead in another swimsuit).
The pattern paper I used came from the Footloose paper pack.
I cut the beach ball from Life's A Beach at 2.41.
I cut the flip flops from Creative Memories - Traveler at 2.88 (I just love flip flops eventhough I can't wear them myself), plus put little gems to bling them up.
I cut the beach chair from Creative Memories -Traveler at 4.41.
For my embellishments I used flip flops and beach towel from Paper Bliss, and Acrylic Shapes (Bikini and Sunglasses and flip flops) I used several flip flops because eventhough I can't wear flip flops I absolutely love them, they just scream summer to me. Although if you look around here in Kentucky you would never realize that flip flops are a summer shoe (I have students that wear them when it's 20 degrees outside).
