Welcome to Cooking With Cricut and Paper Crafting World's “sneak peek” into our annual 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Fun, which happens each year in December. Every day this week we will bring you a variety of different ideas to kick-start your holiday preparations!
Today the Cooking With Cricut Design Team Challenge is to use scraps! I don't know about you, but I have tons and tons of scraps and I use them whenever I can. This entire layout was done with scraps -- with the exception of the two 12" x 12" sheets of light blue card stock I used for my base.
Here's the recipe:
- Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge - Snowman's Hat cut at 1 1/4" tall and his scarf (originally intended to be a Pirate's sash!) cut at 1 1/2" tall.
- Doodlecharms cartridge - Snowman cut at 4" tall and snowflakes cut at 2 5/8" tall.
- Joys of the Season cartridge - "Happy Holidays" cut at 7 1/2" wide; Polar Bear cut at 3" tall; Stocking cut at 2 1/2" tall; and Santa Hat cut at 1 1/4" tall.
- Red and clear stickles for a bit of bling and some pen stitching to finish it off.
This layout will accompany the ones I made for this past weekend's "Crops of Luv" Blog Hop (click here to check out my layouts for Day 1 and Day 2 of the Hop) as well as the one I created yesterday (click here to check it out). "Crops of Luv" works hand in hand with the Make A Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses. If you would like more information about this organization, or would like to make a monetary, scrapbook page or supplies donation please visit their web site at www.cropsofluv.com.
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you head over to Cooking With Cricut and see what the other Design Team members have created! And check back with us each day this week for some great Christmas projects.
