Ho Ho Ho Cricut Circle Blog Hop Day 1!
Welcome to the Christmas Blog Hop by 14
Cricut Circle members!
Yes 14 wonderful stops for both Saturday
and Sunday so be sure
and check both days.
I am stop 9. The hop starts here at Josy's Craft Corner.
You should have arrived from Pixel Layne Studio.
The next stop is Scrappidy Ashy.
If this is your first visit to my blog welcome! If you look at
previous posts you can see I am on the design team
for an awesome rubber stamp company.
I decided to join this hop for a personal challenge.
I put away the stamps and let my Cricut do the work!
I have to admit I went a little cart crazy these past few weeks with
all the great sales! So here is a peek at a couple new favorites of mine.
If you do not have it already - nab Wrap It Up! This is the most
Here is a card done with a saying from this cart.
Happy Holidays was cut at 2 3/4".
Poinsettia layers were cut at 3". Paper is from the DCWV
Homemade Christmas stack found at JoAnn's.
I inked the edges of the kraft colored paper with
Vintage Photo Distress ink. The card itself is 4" by 8".
How about a Santa Highwire Act? LOL!
Isn't he funny? Santa and the penant are from Jolly Holidays.
This one is a Cricut Lite cartridge available from Walmart only.
I am hoping this one shows up soon to purchase
at Cricut.com so everyone can own it! It is adorable!
Santa is cut at 3 1/2". Even then his face is just too small a piece
to use so grab those markers and color it.
I added just little black lines and a dot for the eyes
and a peachy colored dot for the nose and cheeks.
I added a bit of pale pale grey to the edge of the beard
to give it a bit of depth.
The gloves are a bit odd matching up but the cuffs will cover
where it does not quite fit. They were odd pieces to figure out. LOL!
The Penant is oh so simple to cut. Just 2 1/2" in size will do it.
This card is cut at 6" by 6". The black mat is 5 3/4" square
and the yellow patterned paper is 5 1/2" square.
I embossed the yellow paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder -
the A2 size Seeing Spots folder.
