Cricut: The Official Blog
Saturday, August 17, 2013
Hello, friends and wild animal lovers!  I hope you all are having a fun-filled summer.  Our family has been super busy running around, and I even painted the inside of my house.  I'd say it's time for a relaxing day at the zoo now.  So here is my newest layout, Jungle Fever, and it would be perfect for pictures of your favorite zoo trip.  It would also work great if you've been to Disney's Animal Kingdom or any other wild animal park.  This is an intermediate level layout - not too simple, but nothing ridiculously hard, so just about anybody should be able to tame it.

Full directions to this layout (and a zillion more) are 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 with 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, exact mat dimensions, and plenty of color photographs.  Plus detailed paper information is also included.  If you purchase the directions using PayPal, you'll soon get an email with a link so you can automatically download the directions right away.  I'm not sure if Google Checkout is still working, as it is being done away with at some point soon.  But hey, nearly all of you seem to prefer PayPal, so we should be fine.

To complete this layout as shown, you'll need the following supplies:  Cricut Expression and mat, Animal Kingdom cartridge, George cartridge (or any cart with a circle), dark brown chalk ink, 3D pop-dots, black pen, white or silver gel pen, thin rope or twine, Cuttlebug + Forest Branches (or your favorite) embossing folder, plus basic tools and adhesive.  I also used black and brown 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.

Be sure to subscribe to this blog (in the right column under "Get E-mail Alerts") so you'll get email alerts when I post new layouts.  I have a few fun ones coming up this fall!

 Ps. One more note for those of you who teach Cricut classes or would like to teach Cricut classes.  If you're interested in teaching a class using my directions, please contact me at for special pricing on licenses for multiple students.
