I was so happy to get the opportunity to create a project for Tuesday Treats. I decided to do a very simple one page layout. If you are like me you are very busy this time of year and a little short on crafting time... so I wanted to show you how to take a simple layout and quickly bring it to life.
The good news is...you only need ONE Cricut cartridge to recreate this layout. Yep, Winter Frolic is the only cartridge needed. :) To get the "snow" border on the bottom of the page...hand tear a 3"x12" piece of white shimmer or glittered cardstock and ink the top edge in blue.
For the mitten border on pg. 41 of the handbook... design on your Gypsy at 11.69" x 3". To really try and bring them to life...I did not use the layer feature for the cuff of the mittens, but rather embellished them with Liquid Applique and a heat embossing gun. Then added ribbon bows.
The photo mats are the tags on pg. 70...top mat is 6.19"x5" and bottom mat is 6.81"x5.5". Use hide contour to hide the hole in top of tag.
"Let it Snow" on pg. 29 is cut at 31/2" on the Cricut and embellished with Liquid Applique. Snowflakes are the border cut on page 28 at 3.83"x1.66". Cut three of them and layer the flakes. Ink edges and add a little Liquid Applique if desired.
This little snowman on pg. 29 was cut at 41/2" on the Cricut. Then I decided I didn't want the pipe that was originally cut out of the top layer so I did the top layer on the Gypsy so I could hide the pipe. I inked the edges and of course added more Liquid Applique for snow. Glossy Accents help the eyes to stand out and orange Stickles give the carrot nose a little bling. I think that just about covers everything. Thanks so much for looking!
