Chirp Chirp – some Cricut Layouts
I love being able to share my published work with you. I try to take nice pics, but let’s face it, by the time the layouts get back to me, the corners get pretty bent up. So, forgive my not so perfect photo cropping trying to crop out the worst of the bends. I honestly don’t mind it though. Sometimes even in my own albums the corners get a little bent. And I love that my work is being showcased for thousands of readers to see, and be inspired from. Plus I happen to think the minions are some pretty cute kiddos. So, here are some Cricut Layouts.
On this layout I used Hannah Montana for the stars – Cricut Font and Basic Shapes for the Outline Font and Team Spirit for the volleyball. I love the basic stars on here, especially since volleyball doesn’t have a lot of icons to use to show a theme.
Next, I have this cute Mermaid layout. Buying a camera that goes underwater is such a great idea for those hot summer days. I used to buy disposable ones at the super store – but we bought a video camera that is underwater capable. Saves me lots of $$ on not developing ones with camera strap, blurry or splash pics.
I used Teen Scene Paper Dolls for these adorable dolls. I also cut out all their clothing in white cardstock. and I color them in with markers. I am lazy- uh- short on time, yeah yeah. that’s right. and it’s much faster then trying to cut 7 or 8 different papers. The font is Cupcake for the title.
Have a teen or tween? then this layout is typical of your teen too. the facedown generation. I am so thankful we don’t pay per text. I used Cricut Font and Basic Shapes for the fonts and Circles. And the phone is from Going Places.
Do your kids like to read? Mine do. During the summer we make a morning of going to the Library and getting lunch out, then coming home and relaxing and reading our new books.
I used Wrap it Up for the Books. I used Close to my Heart Art Philosophy for the heart in the title, and for the title I used Doodletype.
Now this layout is my favorite from the bunch I’m sharing today. I love the memory of the beach, how for the first time the girl’s were excited to go into the water and boogie board. I love the row of darling tags. I love the colors too. The tags are Charms from Life’s a Beach. The title is from Pack Your Bags.
Next, I have an unconventional St. Pat’s Layout. I love the addition of colors to this layout. The memory was that Annalise found this 4 leaf clover on St. Pat’s day, how lucky is she!
The big clover is from Classroom Feb/March. The border is from that as well. Cupcake is part of the font for the title, and the rest is from Baby Steps.
Lastly I have this layout about my amazing student. Middle school was good to my girl. She excelled and won many awards, along with being voted President of the National Junior Honor Society- where she raised over $500 by hosting a sporting event for charity.
I used ribbons and rosettes for the medallion, Cricut Fonts and Basic Shapes for the title and stars. I used Celebrations for the Star border and Garden Soup for the flower border.
