Joy’s Life ABC Book Cricut Cuttlebug Project “N” Northern Seahorse “O” Octopus “P” Penguin

Today’s letters are N, O and P brought to you by…Me!  (That is an intentional badly done rhyme.)

“N” is for Northern Seahorse

Yes, Northern Seahorse is a Real Thing!  It's um...from the North.

About the Northern Seahorse:

Cricut Cartridges: Life is a Beach for the Font, Coral, Seahorse & Seaweed

Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Tiny Bubbles, Swiss Dots

I really love the way this turned out.  Actually, I’d meant to do Newt for “N”, but I accidentally turned the Newt into Iguana.  Then I was in a MESS to find a decent “N”. There are many different kinds of seahorses, so I chose this one to save the day!  I must admit…I got some ribbing for using it. I can’t tell you how many times I had to explain that the Northern Seahorse was a specific seahorse.  Auuugggghhhh!!!

“O” is for Octopus


About the Octopus:

Cricut Cartridges: Sesame Street Font, Life is a Beach (waves  pg. 77, octopus pg. 54)

Cuttlebug Folder: D’vine Swirl

I don’t know why the octopus only has 5 arms.  Think how confused my nephew will be.

 “P” is for Penguin

Penguin & Crazy Eyes

About the Peculiar Pair of Penguin:

Cricut Cartridges: Sesame Street Font, Animal Kingdom

Cuttlebug Folder: Snowflakes

 That baby penguin got knocked in the head too many times, huh?  He’s all “crazy eyes”.

I hope you’re enjoying this little tour of the ABC’s.  Thanks for looking at my creations!!

    Oh Bless You Joy! I desperately need a penguin for my son’s daycare class, and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out the layers in the handbook. I even searched the Cricut MB and came up with nothing. I finally did a Google search for Cricut Animal Kingdom Penguin and you came up. Seeing the picture is just what I needed! It makes perfect sense now! I’m actually embarassed that I couldn’t figure it out before…

    And great book! I ran across this some months ago and said I would make one for my son. So now I’m doubly glad I found this post! Thank you!
