Carnival Rides layout (for Exploring Cricut)

Today is my day for the daily project at Exploring Cricut!  Sorry I'm getting this up a little late!  Did you go to the carnival or county fair this summer?  Or maybe going to a fall festival with some rides?  If so, this layout is for you!  I can't resist snapping pics of my kids on the carnival rides.  It reminds me of carefree days when I was a girl, going to the Missouri State Fair!  My layout uses the Carousel Lite cartridge to document the fun!  The ticket booth, merry-go-round pony, and title are all from Carousel.  I added some embossing with my Swiss dots folder for some texture.  The colorful background paper is from TPC Studios.

Had to add some swiss dots for texture to the title

some more swiss dots on the horse-isn't that bg paper cool?

And the fun ticket booth cut (I should have added a little face peeping out....)

Carousel-all cuts
Paper-TPC studios bg paper, CTMH solids

You could change up the color scheme to adapt this for a fall festival layout very easily, and go with yellow and orange.  Check back to see the daily goodness at Exploring Cricut each day-we want to inspire you to use your Cricut!


  1. Love love love the embossing! I always forget about that nice little detail on a layout.

  2. Wow-great layout! Perfect cuts, perfect paper!

  3. Fabulous layout Michelle!! Love the cuts, papers and embossing. Great photos, too!! :)

  4. I like Carousels. Like to ride them. Wonderful layout & photos. I have the Carousel Cricut Lite cartridge and have not used it in awhile. Did you know that WalMart is no longer making teh Cricut Lite cartridges? matter of fact the WalMarts here in Central TX no longer have anything Cricut. They do have some stuff at WalMart online.

  5. I think this turned out just wonderful, the images, the colors and the paper just work perfectly together.
