More Christmas Projects

I have been busy busy busy again... and I openly admit to scraplifting some of this stuff. But that's why we share with each other, right?

I got this great svg pattern from Denise's blog. I made 3 of these and put them on 12" round mirrors to give as gifts to very special friends this year. 

My mother asked me to make some cards for her siblings, and these are what I came up with. I used the Christmas Solutions cartridge to cut out the tree onto some mounting paper. I got the different colors by taking out only certain parts of the design and adding some "Glamour Glitter" to the sticky page. Sorry the pictures don't do these justice. It is a very cool effect to have the entire design in glitter. And the Glamour Glitter is so fine that this design is smooth to the touch. I used some Flower Soft for the snow and on the embellisments on the inside of the cards.

We have some little friends who turned 2 on December 5th. So I quickly created these cards using Design Studio, Sesame Street Font and George.
This one is for Brooklyn...and this one is for Will. The glitter is Martha Stewart and it GLOWS in the dark! The little kids loved them!

I totally scraplifted this one off of the Cricut message board - but it was worth it! Such a cute idea! It was for my mom and she loved it too. Kind of fun to see her reaction when I know she loves something I've given her. Love ya mom!

I used Paper Doll Dressup to cut out these images, and embellished them with a whole bunch of different stickles, inks, fun flock and paints. Although it is not my design, I did save my .cut file if any of you would like to have a copy of it.

Christmas Ornaments and SVG's

I have been really busy as of late! I've made so many things and have so many more to go - and the clock is just ticking away. I need to slow down and enjoy a little bit more of the "Christmas" spirit and not so much "rush"...

I used vinyl on both sides of these little glass ornaments that I picked up at Michaels. I also put a little bit of fake snow inside, along with a small cut of something Christmasy - like a stocking, star or toy.

Everyone had matching ribbons to hang the ornaments with.

A better glimpse of the type of decoration I placed inside the ball.

These were super fun to make and really easy! We'll be mailing most of these out this week, and hope that they get there in time for Christmas.

I also did a very rough cut of one of the churches from the Winter Wonderland cartridge. These are so stinkin' cute! I haven't made a bigger one yet - but I can see so much potential for decorating these. Something for every season!

This last weekend I was asked to help with the ward "Super Saturday" and we made some signs with vinyl on them. I totally scored with the vinyl as I called a local sign shop and they said I could come pick up some scraps for FREE! There was quite a bit of it there - and certainly more than enough to cut for the signs were were making. Here are some samples of our finished projects...

They turned out so well! The girls making them wanted to have another sign making activity with some ideas for Family Home Evening boards.

I was playing around tonight too and made a few svgs. I haven't test cut them - so if you download them, please leave me a note to tell me if they work or not.
