Scrapbook Friday with My Cricut Craft Room

Hello, everyone and welcome to my first ever Design Team project for My Cricut Craft Room! I am super excited to share projects alongside my fabulous DT sisters. This week's theme at MCCR was all about Water! What could be more fitting for these ridiculous summer temperatures than to make a Waterpark layout!? Perfect, right?

I don't know about you, but my all-time favorite thing about waterparks are either the lazy river, or the wave pool. This is my take on a lazy river. Hope you enjoy! :)

To make this layout, I cut the body of water by hand, because I wanted a more free form shape. If you wanted to, you could absolutely use your Cricut for the water. I then began to work on the rays of the sun. I simply cut every other diagonal line out to form "rays" shown in the above collage. I then assembled my palm trees, which I cut at three inches using Cricut Craft Room design software. I got the palm trees from the Cricut Cakes Birthday Cakes Cartridge. I then moved on to the slide, which I got from the Playground Equipment Cartridge on CCR. The slide was cut at two inches. I added some silver glitter glue to the slide to catch the sunlight, like real water would. The clouds are from Spring Holiday Cards, and they were cut at one inch.

Here is my finished layout:


Papers: American Crafts - Grey - The Goods Bouquet - 12x12, K and Company - Light Blue Stripe - 11.5x11.5

Cartridges Used: Spring Holiday Cards, Stand and Salute, Plantin Schoolbook, Chore Chart, Birthday Cakes.

Ink: Indian Corn Blue from CTMH.
