Image Series: Airplane (Boys Will Be Boys)

Making Cricut cuts can be quite challenging when it comes to putting paper on the mat over and over again.  It gets to be very tedious.  That's why I started cutting out images in sets of 3 so that I can just put one color at a time but get a lot more done.  Can you tell I'm super eager for Cricut Craft Room???

Cartridges: Airpline cut at 3 in from Boys Will Be Boys, clouds cut at 1 1/2 and 1/4 in cut from Create a Critter
Embossing: Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls for clouds
Sentiment: Pink by Design's "Spring Has Sprung"

They're all rather similar with a few differences.  You can see that one card has the colors reversed.  I forgot how that happened.  Oh, I think I forgot to press shift at one point, so that's why I just flipped the colors.  I have different size background layers and different corners (love that Corner Chomper!).  I'm looking forward to posting more cards in groups of 3!


  1. I love that swirl effect from the cuttlebug. Good call!

  2. Thanks! I don't think it would've been kinda plain without it. In all honesty though, I've seen others do it before, hehe.

  3. Can you layer 3 sheets of card stock on the cutting mat and cut 3 airplanes all at once?

    1. Sorry this is incredibly late. I haven't been on this blog in a while! On the Cricut, I had the Gypsy to cut more than one image on the mat at a time. Now with Cricut Craftroom, it's a lot easier to plan your layers.

      If you mean stacking the 3 pieces of paper together, unfortunately that can't be done. The paper has to stick to the adhesive portion of the mat.
