I am going to try to make Wednesday’s a special day around here: Cricut Wednesday!!! I really need to and want to use more Cricut die cuts on my LO’s and cards so I am challenging myself to use ’em more! This is also a SNEAK PEEK LO too!! Today’s LO is of my fiance when he was little. Isn’t he cute?! LOL Now here are the deets on this LO:

  • This week, I used the Cricut Life’s a Beach cartridge to make these cute little fish!
  • LO was made for a summer camp challenge over at Coordinates Collections, but I think I am too late to enter it! (I had it done in time, but I didn’t get it posted in time!!)
  • I used a sketch from 52sketches for the design.
  • Bermuda Bay cardstock was used for the fish die cuts and the mat around the photo.
  • TIP: Color on your die cuts!! I outlined they eyes with my Basic Black Stampin’ UP Marker and I colored the fins with my Pacific Point In Color Marker I made with a VersaMarker.
  • Alphas, borders, patterned paper, and journaling sticker were all from a Coordinates Collections kit.
  • Tangerine Tango Cardstock was used for the circle mats.
  • DCVW Citrus Stack was used for the patterned paper circles.
  • TIP: For perfect circles, use a circle cutter! Stampin’ UP and Martha Stewart both make awesome ones! They are pretty small and easy to use tools.
  • On the photo, I used the Stampin’ UP Ticket Corner Punch.

  1. Love the idea of a weekly challenge to use your Cricut machine. I feel the same…I don’t use it as much as I should. May have to try the same type of challenge.
