Cooking With Cricut Challenge: Picnic Time

Happy Wednesday and welcome to Cooking With Cricut's Design Team challenge day!  Melin challenge the team with a picnic-theme in honor of August being National Picnic Month.  And while it's way too hot here in North Central Florida to picnic comfortably, a paper picnic is always cool!

I created a two page layout for my youngest daughter's scrapbook.  We go to a family reunion each June for the Rhoden side of our family.  Demi attended her first when she was only two months old!  So these pages will commemorate that event -- my color printer is on the fritz and I couldn't print the photos out, so I will add them later.

Each of the pages measures 12" x 12" and the base is a pale blue card stock by Recollections.  All of the other papers are from my scrap stash.  (Don't forget, you can click on the pictures to enlarge them.)

Here is the recipe:

Pooh & Friends Cartridge --
  • Winnie the Pooh - cut at 4 1/2" tall.
  • Piglet - cut at 3" tall.
  • Tigger - cut at 4 1/2" tall.
  • Eeyore - cut at 3" tall.
  • Roo - cut at 2 7/8" tall.
  • Rabbit - cut at 4 1/2" tall.
  • Owl - cut at 2 1/2" tall.
  • Trees - cut at 3" tall.
  • Apple Basket - cut at 1 5/8" tall.
  • Cake - cut at 1 1/4" tall.
  • Veggies - cut at 1 1/4" tall.
  • Clouds - cut at 2 1/4" and 1 1/2" tall.
  • Sun - cut at 2 1/2" tall.

Pooh Font cartridge --  Text - cut at 1 1/2" tall.

Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge --   Picnic Basket - cut at 1 1/2" tall.

Whew!  I think that is the most Cricut cuts I've ever used in one project!  And believe it it or not -- it was fun . . . in a Disney cartridge-sadistic kind of way!  LOL!  Disney cartridges are notorious for their many itsy-bitsy, teeny-tiny cuts.  (You may notice that some of my cuts are kind of rough -- I had to change blades about mid-way through my layout.)

Now it's your turn -- link up your favorite picnic project over at Cooking With Cricut this week.  You may be our next "Top Chef!"  And make sure you head over and check out what the rest of team created!

And as my buddy Tigger would say, "Have a Tiggerific week! TTFN!"
