Agate Geodes

Who doesn’t love a beautiful rock?

Like most kids, I had a pretty sweet rock collection, growing up. And, living at the base of the Wasatch Mountains certainly provided ample opportunity to find new, awesome stones for my collection.

Now, my own kids have started to get in on the rock collecting craze. I have been meaning to take them to the Dugway Geode Beds here in Utah…it’s just a little out of the way of, well, everything. Can you imagine how fun it would be to find your very own geodes, though?!

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome freebies available on my blog!

The color combinations for these geodes is absolutely endless! And, as you can see, a splash of metallic or glitter cardstock really adds a nice pop.

Enjoy making these agate geodes! I hope you have as much fun putting them together as I did. Be sure to share your results with me on Instagram!

    Thank you so much! These geode designs are perfect for my husband. I will include a couple of them on his next birthday card. Many years ago, he found a geode bed in the desert in Arizona and brought home a bucket full of whole geodes. We still have them along with a small collection of petrified wood. Our property here is made up of glacial till, that is pretty much nothing but rock. We bought a rock tumbler a couple of years ago and now have plenty of polished rocks too. Although I don’t need more rocks, I can’t resist picking up a pretty rock when I am out working in the yard. Your design is very clever and well thought out, thank you again.

      No way!? That is so awesome!! What a great find. 😀

      And that is so cool that you have your own rock tumbler! I had never even though about being able to own something like that before, but you’ve got my gears turning. And I’m glad I’m not the only one with a yard full of rocks!

    Such a great idea! Lovely. It occurred to me that to make the larger pieces like frames with center holes and stacking them in reverse would give the ‘geode’ more of a a hollow feeling.

    Thank you for this! I added a few more layers in the middle to make it look a bit more rustic and I love it! I’ll probably see if I can use this design in a frame as if they were real agates.
