BBTB2: Cricut - Pre-school print and cut layout

It was an early 'back to school' time a few weeks ago.  My daughter now gets a few hours a week with just one at home and two in school.  She is thrilled.  She took a few pictures on the first day and of course, I had to scrap them.  I'll write a few words on the matching page, (which I haven't done yet) that describe my grandson's physical and likeable attributes.

It's also back to school week at Bitten by the Bug2.  Our challenges now go for two weeks in hope of getting more participation.  Link up your blog, Flicker, Instagram or Pinterest pictures featuring back to school on the BBTB2 blog.  Details HERE.

I used print and cut with my Cricut Explore for most of this design.  The cuts would have been just too small and tedious to put together.   I did a lot of slicing and contouring on the ABC blocks and they now resemble a hopscotch game.  I added the backpack, supplies and his favorite toy images and then flattened the whole image.  It is definitely not as bright as paper cuts, but at least I got a layout done!

Cricut - Water Bottle Decor

It was time to decorate the water bottles for the grandkids.  The two oldest picked out their own design and I picked the squirrel on a bike for the little guy.   Easy projects, done in an hour.  The kids even helped with the applying of the vinyl and pushing buttons on the Cricut Explore.  All designs are from Cricut Access.

BBTB2: Cricut - You Make Me Melt

 I just can’t take enough pictures of my grandkids this summer. They grow too fast and I want to capture it all. The little guy is learning how to swim with a doughnut.  Of course, you have to take a break during your summer  and have lots of ice cream to help cool yourself down. Good thing he was eating this one outside. My layout today is slightly scrap-lifted from a Pinterest pin.

 It pairs nicely with the Bitten By The Bug2 challenge this week  (Michele is our hostess) which is to use a Cricut cut to show VACATION OR TRAVEL.   Link up your project to our designers blog HERE.

Cartridges Used:

Sun Title:  Face- Create A Critter, rest is Pack Your Bags (I changed out the sun)
Popsicles: Simply Charmed (face removed)
You make me melt:  Just Because Cards, surrounded by an Artbooking frame

Here is the Pinterest find that gave me the inspiration:
