Thanksgiving layout made using Doodlecharms, Designer's Calendar, and Country Life Cricut cartridges.

Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far!

Today I have a layout made with some older cartridges and one newish one. It is one that I will put my Thanksgiving family photo in when we have our dinner at the end of the month. It was super simple to throw together, so hopefully you guys are not too intimidates by the fact that I used 3 cartridges (Country Life, Doodlecharms, & Designer's Calendar) on it.

I used SU! paper and ribbon. I cut the large circle using Designer's calendar at 10 3/4".
This pie and rolling pin are cut using Country Life at 4 1/2".
I cut the scalloped rectangle using Designer's Calendar at 3". The layouts title is cut using the same cartridge at 3" .

I cut the turkey at 4" using Doodlecharms.
I am drawing for the Pink Expression on my blog today, so make sure you check it out to see if you are a winner. If you have not participated yet head over there to check out the giveaway. Click here ==> Courtney Lane Designs

Joy is also giving away her Pink Expression today. Click here to check that out ==> Obsessed With Scrapbooking

Also, don't forget that Joy and I are giving away the Cricut Cake on this blog this week. So, make sure you are a follower and leaving comments on all of the post for a better chance to win!!

Have a great Tuesday!

ScrappyMama said...

Great Layout! I like that you guys give us the "recipe" for the projects you share instead of just telling us what carts were used. I know that I can change anything that I want but I appreciate knowing where to start from! Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize...I've got my fingers crossed!

Kathleen said...

Love the layout and the papers used - unfortunately, I don't have ANY of these cartridges. I'm gonna search for these images on the From My Kitchen and Thanksgiving solutions cartridge. I'm sure they have similar cuts. As for the circle and mats, I'll have to wing it I guess. TFS

This layout is adorable! Thank you for all of the ideas you share. I would absolutely love a Cricut Cake. Didn't think I would because at first everything looked kind of funky, but now everything looks great! Edges clean, and can even cut pie dough! With all of my disabilities, this would really help in the kitchen. I'll keep my fingers crossed on this one!
Blessings, Donna
