Study and Learn layout (for Exploring Cricut)

It's Back to School week at Exploring Cricut-although my kids have been back to school for a few weeks now already!  It started early this year!  I always take a picture of each of them with their backpack, plus one of all three boys on the first day of school, so I made a layout using the Recess Lite cartridge.

Our challenge included using a school theme with the virtually all the primary colors plus including a ribbon.  My background paper is from the Bo Bunny Learning Curve collection-isn't it just so fun?  The school themed print photo mats are from Kaisercraft's Class Act collection.  The photo mats are sized for 4x6 photos, but I'm printing them at 3x5, since I want some of the cute photo mat paper to show.  All the cuts are from the Recess Lite cart.

We'd love to see your back to school projects, so link up with us at Exploring Cricut!  You can check for a new project everyday, either on Facebook or on the EC website, to see what the design team has cooked up to get you using all your cartridges.

  2. That's a great way to use the ribbon! That paper is awesome!

  3. Very fun layout! We used some of the same paper:) Hope your son has a great birthday. O, in answer to your question about welding I only use my Gypsy for that. I haven't tried it on CCR.
