Fall greetings, scrappy friends!  It's getting chilly around here - just the right time for a tropical getaway, don't ya think?  Well, we've got just the thing for you. Whether you had a relaxing cruise this summer, or you're planning an escape to your favorite tropical paradise for the winter, this new layout kit will be perfect for capturing those sunny memories.

This "Pack Your Bags" layout was designed by the Bling Queen herself, Wendy Lawrence.  It's available to purchase on our Cricut Kits page, which can accept PayPal or Google checkout.  It's shipping now, and there are only about 15 kits still available as some of our local friends have already snatched them up.

Included with this kit will be all of the patterned papers, cardstock and ribbon that you'll need for the layout.  And of course, you'll also get complete directions with our Cricut Cut Chart, which shows you exactly what you'll need to cut on your machine, along with written instructions and plenty of color photos.  Plus the photo mats are pre-cut for you to make your life even easier.

To complete this project as shown, you'll need the following supplies:  Cricut Expression and mat, Pack Your Bags cartridge, light brown chalk ink (used Gingerbread color), 3D pop dots, white gel pen, brown pen, Diamond Stickles, plus basic tools and adhesive.  Optional: Cuttlebug and embossing folders (Swiss Dots and Devine Swirls - or folders of your choice).

You can check out this kit and all of our other available projects on our Cricut Kits page.  This complete kit is $25, including directions.  Or you'll see the option to order just the directions for $10 and then automatically download them (if using PayPal).  If you have any questions at all, just email me at

I am a beach lover and have always been looking for a kit that showcases my beach snaps and this kit would be perfect for it. Thank you so much for this beautiful kit

I like your layout, very cute. Might have to use some of your ideas for my Hawaii pages. On a different note I see you are in Rocklin, I live in So Cal now but grew up in Auburn

Hi, Monique -- LOVE this LO for a Hawaiian trip this month. Don't have Pack Your Bags, however.
Is there an optional cart?

How are you feeling????
