I created this fun layout featuring some super cute print then cut .png images from The patterned papers are from the DCWV School Days Stack and the Stack 7 paper stack. I used the Lemonade Stand, Ice Cold Title and lemon slices, lemonade boy sitting. All of these are finished png files that I was able to print then cut with my Cricut Explore. This is my first official project with my Cricut Explore.

Here is a closer look at the lemon slices. I printed them out and then cut them with my cutter.
Here is the bear in lemonade stand. Again, I printed it out, then cut it out with my cutter.
Here is a closer look at the title image. I used some foam tape to give it some lift.

Here's a closer look at the cute little bear sitting with lemonade. Again it is a finished .png that I print then cut with my Cricut Explore. I used regular cardstock to print on all of the pieces and then again some foam tape to give them just a little lift.
