Puddle jumper

My husband refers to these photos as Hannah's escaped mental-illness patient days. That child always wanted to wear what SHE wanted to wear. This was the standard outfit -- raincoat, favorite pink boots and jammies underneath! Fortunately, it fits the day here, where she's off to jump in puddles behind our fence.

This picture was perfect for something I like to do: cut elements into photos. If you look carefully, you'll see I've cut raindrops into the photo, then replaced them on the mat. I also enjoyed using Create A Critter for something different (the title) and one of my all-time favorite cartridges (I love silhouettes!), Nursery Rhyme. Thanks for visiting!

Nursery Rhyme and Create a Critter cricut cartridges


1. Crop photos to size, then create a cardstock piece the same size for testing cut on. Arrange teardrop shapes on virtual mat, copy/paste and resize to create double cut lines, then run test cut to ensure proper placement. Adjust if necessary, then cut photo. Back photo with mat, then place teardrop cuts.

2. Cut "Rainaway" (Nursery Rhyme) at 5" on blue. Cut blackout on cream, trim off duck with scissors. Ink edges, or use a cricut marker. Adhere together.

3. Cut "Splash" (Create a Critter) at 5" in cream. Draw with blue cricut marker. Use glitter on the water splash.

4. Arrange all on base cardstock. Adhere. Enjoy!
