Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with this week's Mix-It-Up project for SweetSassyDiva. Our theme was to use several cartridges (check) BBQ theme (check) and a Bold Color (check). I do not have either of the BBQ themed cricut cartridges, so my Gypsy and I got to work!
The tree is from Just Because Cards sized to 6.23w x 14.93h (real size is 5.78 x 6.92). The sun is from H20 sized at 2.56w x 2.54h. The grill shape is from Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons ~ it is the watermelon at 3.79w x 1.59h (minus the slice) and the oval is from George 0.99w x 2.68h rotated 90 degrees.
For the legs of the grill, I used 2 "A"s from Cherry Limeade at 1.52w x 1.94h. I put another oval on my mat for the grill top. Again I used George and sized the oval to 0.99w x 2.68h, rotated 90 degrees. I cut these out in black.
On the 3rd Layer, I put some grass from Everyday Paper Dolls at 12.0w x 2.73h. I copied a second grass on the mat. I put the banner from Birthday Bash on the mat at 6.01w x 4.06h. I put BBQ from Cherry Limeade at .80 inches and the watermelon from Creative Memories at .73 inches. I copied the watermelon and layer and then hid the watermelon half from each as I only needed the slice.
I put four skinny balloons (aka hotdogs) on my mat from George and Basic Shapes sized at 0.21w x 0.57h. I put four circles (hamburgers) on my mat from George at 0.36w x 0.33h. I put three clouds from Create A Critter on my mat at 2.49w x 2.06, 1.92w x 1.59h and 2.63w x 2.18h. I hid the inner cut on all three.
Here are the pieces all cut out.
Here is my grill all assembled.
Some hot dogs with grill marks!
I used some stickles to create the grill top and the smoke.
I put orange stickles on the bottom layer of the sun (under the swirl) and some waterfall stickles on the cloud.
I added some journaling and twine to my layout.
I cut the bird off my banner and added BBQ and the watermelon slice. I did change my paper for the banner to match the photo mats.
I put some gold stickles on the swing rope.
Here are a couple of photos from our 4th of July BBQ. I can almost smell the grill!!
