I used DesignStudio, Cricut Calligraphy Cartridge, with Cricut blue pen to help make and cut the mesh in the background of this layout. The cutfile contains two other meshes or backgrounds. I find that the pen is easiest to use with the other two meshes instead of cutting them out--it's just a little too thin I think. Although with a little patience and a brand new mat, I'm sure someone could cut them. If interested in the cutfile, please see my blog: http://cammierobinson.blogspot.com/ Thanks for looking!
