When I saw this cute Don't Eat the Grass cut on the cartridge, I knew exactly the photos I wanted to use from our camping trip in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming in the Summer of 2009.
Project by Tammy White
Using Nate's ABCs Cricut Cartridge, I cut the goat and layers (p. 63) at 5.5" tall and assembled and adhered all of the pieces together using Tombow Mono Aqua glue. I did the same for the smaller goat cut at 3.5" tall using the Font 2 button. Once assembled, I used my Signo Uni-Ball White Impact Gel Pen to doodle some dots randomly on the goats. If you have not used the Signo Uni-Ball White Gel Pen, buy it now! I have tried many white pens and this one is the BEST!
Next I trimmed my photos and matted them on a dark brown cardstock allowing 1/4" of brown showing on each side. Then again I used my Signo Uni-Ball White Gel Pen to add dots to each corner of the photo mat.
I had a sheet of paper with a photo of grass that I used as my background. I adhered this to a sheet of green cardstock to make it more sturdy. I applied Tombow Mono Adhesive tape to the back of the 2 photos mats in the corner and placed them. Then I applied Pop Up Glue Dots to the back of the goats and the center photo mat. Once I placed the center photo mat, I added the goats.
This was a quick and simple layout but with the cuts from the Nate's ABCs cartridge it turned out really cute.
