For my project I used the Smooth Sailing SVG file from Ms Kate Cuttables and CTMH papers:

I used an sketch from the CTMH Artbooking cartridge to plan my page, which you can find here At Connie's. This made the whole process to easy to plan and visualize in my Cricut Design Space and then cut it with my Explorer.

The seagull was an easy fish tail (whale?)...
