Here is the more traditional colored version of the layout I taught on the Cricut Cruise. This layout was made using the Cricut Pack Your Bags and Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Cricut cartridge and Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock. I love how the double dot paper gives some interest and texture without being overwhelming.
Here on the left side of the page, the four nautical shapes are cut at 2" each and have multi-layers. They are all shadowed with black to give them some anchoring. To really make a statement, be sure and cut all the layers - your die cuts really shine that way.
The "Our Cruise" is cut at 2-1/2", all layers also. The scalloped border is from the Martha Stewart All Occasions cartridge and cut at 10".
On the right hand side, I cut the ship at 5", after flipping it so it faced into the layout. The journaling block was cut at 4", 3-3/4" and 3-1/2".
All photo blocks are for standard 4" x 6" photos. White pen adds some faux stitching around the edges.
Now here is the layout we made on the cruise, based off this one:
The papers are from the new Cricut Imagine cartridge, Berries and Cream Patterns and Colors. I love the tropical feel to this! The papers are just fabulous! See how different things look with other colors? Makes such a difference! I think depending on what type of cruise you went on (Alaska versus Caribbean, etc.), each layout has a place.
