Every month the Circle puts out an online magazine just for it's members. I decided to play along with the magazine challenge this month because I was feeling Christmas-y yesterday!
The rules for this challenge are: Project must be newly created and able to hang from your tree. You must use at least 4 Cricut cuts in your design and incorporate something from one other Provo Craft Product… like the YuDu, Cuttlebug or Knifty Knitter. And this is what I came up with:
I cut the tree at 6" from the Christmas Solutions Cartridge that I got from the Gypsy cartridge download. I actually cut it twice and flipped one of them. Then I cut it again from some chipboard so it would be sturdy to hang on my tree. I embossed the green layers with my D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder and adhered them to the chipboard after I inked the edges of it brown. I made this Santa with the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. He is cut at 4". I used red flocking on his suit so he is soft and fuzzy. His face is from Peachy Keen Stamps. I also cut his sack at 2" with Real Dial Size on. I used the Cricut Brown Marker 1st then cut it out. I colored the bow with a Bic Mark-It Ultra Fine Marker. Then I cut the stack of presents from the Birthday Bash cartridge at 1 3/4". Finally the star at the top of the tree is from Plantin SchoolBook with the Roly Poly feature and it is 1". I used my Xyron 150 to cover both sides with adhesive and then used some Martha Stewart glitter for the bling.
Before assembling every thing I grabbed my Stickles and added little colored dots all over the tree. Then I used my Helmar Zap Dots to layer everything. I'm so pleased with how cute this came out and I'm excited to hang it on the Christmas tree. I'm thinking I need to make MANY more ornaments because Evie is just at the right age to remove them from the tree to play with... and I don't want her playing with glass ones. Well, back to the scraproom to play some more...
