Beach Fun with Pack Your Bags



I'm loving the Cricut Pack Your Bags cartridge! I think I'll be getting a lot of use out this one, especially for layouts. For this layout, I cut my title at 2.88". It didn't stand out well on my background paper, so I cut a strip of blue cardstock at 3 1/4" x 11" and ran it through my Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder. For my journaling tag, I cut the stamp image at 2.65", using my Library Ledger paper. To make it pop off of the page, I offset it on a piece of 2 1/2" x 3" blue paper.


For the sand castle, I created a background by cutting a 7.47" circle from Mini Monograms and running it through the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. The scalloped circle behind it is cut at 6.88". The sand castle itself is cut at 3.12", and I ran the bucket through the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder.


My photo is trimmed to 4" x 4 3/4", with the red layer at 4 1/4" x 5" and the green layer at 4 1/2" x 5 1/4". I finally got to use the cute "Beach" metal slide and ribbon that I picked up at Tuesday Morning last year!
