Exploring Cricut Summer Fun Challenge

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).


  1. Great job Emily, now if the rain stops you might get some pictures on it!

  2. Fun layout! You will love your pics on this and have a great time with your friend:)


  3. Fabulous!! Just fabulous!! Love love love your flip flops!!! I love flip flops, too and I can't wear them either!! I so wish I could!! :)
