Seaside Mesh (for a lantern)

This is the mesh I originally created for the Cricut Message Board swap mentioned in my last post. It was designed for a lantern similar to the Halloween lantern I did last month (here is a LINK to that post). When cutting the 12 x 12 version you need to use the 12 x 24 mat and place the paper at the one inch mark. This design takes quite a long time to cut and you need to be very careful in removing it from the mat.

There is also a baby bug version on the first page of the file. The design is slightly different - here is a screen shot (I have not cut this version yet). The shorter baby bug version may be more versatile.

I decided that this design wasn't quite right for the swap so I created the heart mesh in my last post. Once again, I am pleased to see how useful the Disney cartridges can be even if you are not cutting out the characters - the seashell and ocean designs are lovely on this cartridge.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing. You are so generous with your hard work and time.

  2. Wow I love this mesh. Just got back from florida and this page will look great with some of my pics. Thanks again for sharing this file.

  3. I am new to the DS but I have had my small and big E cricuts for a long time. This has opened up a whole new world for me. I am so into making 12 x 12 scrapbook pages and I love your backgrounds... Thanks so much for sharing them with us.... :o)
