Fun at the Beach

About two years ago, I got involved with the local Curves, a national women's exercise chain.  I was just getting to know the staff and as I was leaving one day, I saw one of them hand cutting out shapes.  I asked about them and we got to talking.  The manager wanted to do some cut out shapes for a special program they were going to run.  After hearing what they were going to do, I said I could help using my Cricut and I explained what the Cricut was.

After that, I became the official "shape cutter".  Every month, they have a bulletin board that posts the names of members and how many pounds and inches they have lost.  The manager wanted to liven things up, so we worked together so every month, I cut out Cricut shapes for the theme of that month. I have a larger shape in the center, with smaller shapes where the staff writes the names and numbers for the various members.  My work always gets lots of attention.  For the month of June, we went for a Beach theme.  

In keeping with my Cricut Cartridge Challenge, I cut these shapes using the following cartridges:

Doodlecharms - Sandcastle
Sea Shells and Shovels- Paper Dolls Dress Up
Pails - Joy of the Season 

I always have fun making the shapes for the bulletin board, coming up with a different theme every month.  

Thanks for looking...I'm excited about the projects I will be creating with the rest of my Cricut Cartridges!  I hope you'll enjoy following my progress.

Koala-t hugs,



  1. What a cute idea... love those!

  2. What fun! It's nice to be able to use the cricut for something other than cards and layouts. I'm sure the other members love the new board.
