Summer days are finally here (in most parts, anyway). So I've been playing with two of my favorite cartridges, and have created a bright and colorful "Lazy Days" layout that I would love to just hop on into and spend the day there! This is really a pretty versatile layout. It would be great for beach pictures, of course, but also would work for any swimming pool pictures, and of course a fun summer day at the Disney Parks. And hey, if you need an excuse to book a Disney cruise, this just might do it for you, lol! Oh, and one more little note: if you don't have the Mickey & Friends cart, or if you just want a straightforward beach theme, it's quite easy to subtract Mickey and Pluto, and still end up with a great layout.

Full directions to this layout (and a bunch more) are now available on my Cricut Kits page for $5 each. Directions include my Cricut Cut Chart, which shows you line by line exactly what you'll need to cut on your machine with all of the settings. And cuts are grouped by color so it's nice and efficient. There are also well organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs. Detailed paper information is also included. If you purchase directions with PayPal, you'll soon get an email through which you can automatically download the directions right away. Google checkout is also an option, but I do process those by hand, so it may take upto a day or two.

This is a very detailed layout, with a few oddities, but with some time and patience, you shouldn't have too much trouble (I hope!!) To complete this layout as shown, you'll need the following supplies: Cricut Expression®, Life’s a Beach cart, Mickey & Friends cart, dark brown chalk ink, 3D pop dots, white gel pen, black pen, piercing tool, plus basic tools and adhesive. I also used 3 medium silver brads (1/2” diameter) and some blue polka dot ribbon (3/8” wide).
