Family vacations to the beach are fun to scrapbook, especially if you own the Cricut Life’s a Beach cartridge. However, that is not all you can do with this crafty accessory from Provo Craft’s popular line of die cut machines.
Like the other cartridges from Provo Craft, the cutouts can be cut in a variety of sizes. For example, the Expression will allow you to make the turtles, sand castles, and Tiki font on this cartridge as little as a quarter inch tall, all the way up to 23-1/2 inches. This means that you can use it for more than just creating die cuts for your handmade cards and scrapbook layouts.
For example, beach themes are popular for children’s bedrooms. Using this cart and a stack of cuttable vinyl, you can easily make an eye catching wall mural for your son or daughter’s room in far less time than it would take to hand paint it. You can also use the vinyl to customize furniture pieces, such as headboards, mirrors, and desks.
If you do like to paint, you can also use the vinyl to create stencils, which you can then use to paint walls and more. Using fabric paint, you can even paint curtains and sheets, as well as t-shirts and other clothing accessories.
Of course, this cartridge is also perfect for paper crafting. Are you planning a Hawaiian themed birthday party? Using the Cricut Life’s a Beach cartridge, you can make custom invitations and decorations. After the party is over and your pictures are processed, use it to make die cuts for your scrapbook layouts. Along with the die cut shapes, the creative features available on this cart will let you create borders and titles for embellishing your layouts.
With a little imagination, there really is no limit to what you can create with the Cricut Life’s a Beach cartridge.
How should I design Scrapbook pages for Swing Dancing?
I have been swing dancing for almost a year now and have some wonderful shots, both group and dance floor shots that I want to make a scrapbook out of. I have some pictures that are of formal dresses and some that are just during lessons…I just don't know where to begin my backgrounds and embellishments…I also tend to journal a lot too so if I could find interesting quotes about Swing Dancing I would also like to do that as well. Can anyone suggest where to start with this? We don't do too much with the fifties style poodle skirts and things like that but I am open to all ideas currently. Thank-you.
