Oregon Coast Layout with Wall Decor and More Cartridge

Hi everyone!!  Today, I get to share a layout with you that I made with the Wall Decor and More Cricut cartridge that ScrapbookPal send me to work with this month.  I love lighthouses and whenever I am in an area where they are, I make my husband pull over and we have to take pictures.  When I saw the lighthouse on the Wall Decor and More cart, I knew this was a cart for me.  I have many lighthouse pictures to scrapbook and this cartridge will help me decorate my pages perfectly.  I also think that lighthouses make wonderful masculine cards.  I love the font on this cart...especially the swirly layering on the Monogram font cuts (like the ones on the first letters of my title).

Die cuts: Cricut Expression and Wall Decor and More cartridge
Ink: Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye inkpads
Cardstock and patterned paper: Stampin' Up!

Cut the following from the Wall Decor and More cartridge:
Lighthouse - 11 1/2 inches
Lighthouse border - 3 inches
Title - 1 1/2 inches
Sailboat - 2 inches
"Waves" - (7) 3/4 inches
Flowers - (2) 2 1/2 inches and (5) 1 3/4 inches (I placed a circle punched out piece of cardstock in a different color behind the flowers and cut the leaves off of the top layer to get the look I wanted)

Pulling it all together:
  1. Ink the edges of all the cuts with the Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye ink pads and assemble the layers together. 
  2. Stitch along the top and sides of the layout with a sewing machine or doodle stitching with a pen.
  3. Place both lighthouse pieces along the bottom edge of the layout where you want them to be (do not adhere yet).
  4. Arrange the photos that you want to use along the middle of the layout about 2 3/4 inches from the bottom so that the lighthouses don't overlap important parts of the photos and adhere.
  5. Adhere a 3/4 inch strip of patterned paper under the line of photos and a 1/2 inch strip above the photos
  6. Adhere the lighthouses.  Arrange and adhere the waves along the bottom of the layout and along the top of the photo line.
  7. Adhere the title to the top of the layout on the left side of the right page.
  8. Using dimensional adhesive, adhere the flowers as shown.
