State Fair Layout

Hi Cricut Fans!  This is Rita of Rita's Paper Obsession.  Some of the fun memories of summer include going to an amusement park, carnival or fair.  Today I have a layout to share with you.


For this layout I used sheets of solid card stock and three different coordinating patterned papers.  Cuts are from the Carousel cartridge as follows:  Ferris Wheel (Ride5) 10.5 inches; Merry-go-round (Ride4) 5 inches; "State Fair" 3 inches cut in pattern paper and solid; and three Banners 3.5 inches.  Photo mats are cut to fit the photos I selected for the layout.

Merry-go-round, banners and title are secured with dimensional tape to add some depth.


The title does not have a shadow cut so I cut the base cut from the solid to create the shadow and off set the pattern cut to make it stand out.



Thanks for letting me share today.  Check out the Carousel cartridge, it has a lot of great cuts for your amusement park, carnival, fair and even circus photos.  Happy scrapping!

  15. This is such a fun layout. Really like all the layers and especially how you made your own "Shadow" for the state fair cut. Being offset like that really gives it dimension and makes it stand out.
