Hooked on You

Today I am sharing a two page layout I created to highlight some photos I have of my husband fishing with our granddaughters. For my project I used the file, "CK Hooked on You"


I started with a piece of pumpkin cardstock as a base for each page. I then cut a wavy mat from the center of two Doodlebug "Happy Campers, Campground Critters" papers using a free cricut image from, "Cricut Fonts & Basic Shapes, and mounted the created frames onto the pumpkin cardstock base. I then created a fish border in Design Space using a free file and a fish border from Animal Kingdom. If you would like the file, you can get it here: I added a 12 inch by  2 1/4 inch strip of "Summertime Stripe" to each border.

I used the other side of the "Campground Critters " paper to make two 4 inch by 6 inch, and two 4 inch by 4 1/2 inch mats, then mounted them on green cardstock. I then made a 1 1/2 inch border for the top of each mat with a Making Memories Maxicuts Scallop scissor, then mounted each on a brown layer.

I cut three moose using my cricut explore and inked the edges of all the pieces with colorbox inks before I assembled them. The moose are sized at 6 1/2 inches, 5 1/2 inches and 4 3/4 inches.I added camouflage to their hats using the new pattern fill feature on the explore and the "Camouflage" pattern from Prettygrafik.  I put the moose together with pop dots to give them some dimension


This was a really fun project to make and I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for visiting! ~ Shirley
