My 1st Christmas Layout of 2011!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday and more importantly I hope you have had some time to create today. Today, I made this super fun Christmas layout and I wanted to share it with you! I am trying to get a jump start on my Christmas layouts/cards this year. So far so good! I used the "Jolly Holidays" Cricut Cartridge and the DCWV "Christmas Combo" Paper Stack from 2010 to make this layout. I was given the "Jolly Holidays" cartridge as a gift last year for Christmas and I finally get to use it! I really like it. It is one of my favorite Cricut Cartridges so far. I hope this layout provides some ideas and inspiration for you as you begin your Christmas crafting. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Thank You for stopping by!

Happy crafting!

Cricut Cardz Challenge # 94 "Spooks, Monsters, Ghouls and Goblins". The challenge is to make a Halloween card using Any Halloween image and any colors you would like. You can play along with this challenge by going to For my entry I created a card for my niece Madison using an image from the "Mini Monsters" Cricut Cartridge. My niece loves candy corn. I think she would eat it year round if she could so that was the inspiration for this card. Also in this picture you see a Halloween treat bag I made for my niece from the same cart.

Today, I would like to share with you a page from a scrapbook I just finished of our family vacation in July of 2011.We went Mackinac Island, MI. We stopped at a candy shop on Mackinac Island to buy some fudge. My niece Madison was watching peanut brittle being made. Yum!! I used the "Mini Monsters" Cricut Cartridge to create this layout! It is one of my favorites from my vacation scrapbook. The paper I used came from "The Great Vacation Stack" put out by DCWV. Although the "Mini Monsters" cartridge is primarily a Halloween cartridge I found a way to use it for a summer layout. I hope this inspires you and challenges you to try something new and use cartridges that have a specific theme in a new way.

Be inspired and keep on crafting!
