My Cricut Craft Room "Funny" layout

Today is Scrapbook day at My Cricut Craft Room, and the theme is use the word "funny). Of course I'm scrapbooking my goddaughter Olivia. Her mom has tons of photos of her making faces (my favorite face is the one in the polkadot dress), so this is what I made.

The faces are from Smiley Cards, and the letters from Doodletype. I think they go perfect with the theme. The background paper is from Moxie. If you don't know these faces are called Emoticons, and they are all cut out at 3". 

At first I didn't think I would like Smiley Cards, but it was free so I didn't worry about it. But I have gotten some use out of it as you can see. Olivia looks cute even when she is making faces!

I love this Oh Emoticon!!! Oh is Olivia's favorite word. 

This face is a combo of a few of the faces if the Emotcons, which as fun for me to make.

Get Whale soon

Today is Theme Thursday at Erica's Craft Room, and the theme for today is Blue. Well, that makes me think of the ocean, and some stamps I bought from My Thoughts Exactly that I wanted to use. So I made a get well, or a "Get Whale" card just so that I could use those stamps.

This cute little whale is from Create A Critter. I inked his spout a little so that it would show up against the light blue Doodlebug paper. The Waves are from Life's a Beach, and I had to weld two of them with my Gypsy to make the cut long enough for my card. I cheated a little and used green for my base layer, but I just though it needed something. The bling is from my stash.

Layout Friday for My Cricut Craft Room

Today's theme for Scrapbook pages at My Cricut Craft Room is Dolphins! This is perfect for me because I needed to finish scrapbooking my pictures of swimming with the dolphins in Jamaica.

For this layout I used Life's a Beach and Opposites Attract. The pattern paper is from Imaginisce's Splash collection.

The wave border, dolphin, and the fish are from Life's a Beach. We did this on our Honeymoon, almost 6 years ago. Hard to believe that we have been married that long.

The phrase Fishy Kisses is from Opposites Attract. I used my Gypsy to weld the letters together forthe shadow. Both are cut  at 2.10". The Dolphin I cut at 3".

The orange waves are cut at .76", and it took two to get across the page. I didn't like the way the seam looked so I added the blue star, which is from Prima.

These shells are also from Prima, they came in a set with the stars and sequins.The are nice for layouts because the are so flat, but yes, they are real shells.
