Bendy Nativity Card

I wish I could say I had started on this year’s Christmas cards, but sadly, I am just now posting one of last year’s cards. It is a bendy card that stands up nicely for display but folds flat for mailing. This one is a Samantha Walker design available in the Silhouette Design store.

Silhouette Cameo: Winter Village

I made this village for my living room mantel last Christmas. The files are all in the Silhouette Design Store. I believe nearly all the pieces were Marji Roy designs. I cut the pieces out of 140 lb. paper and used vellum for all the windows. Each building had a battery-operated tealight inside. I also punched a hole in the middle of the ice rink so I could put a light through it. I loved the shadows cast by the skaters!

I sprinkled some fake snow around the village and added some white fir pine garland from Michael’s.

I knocked out another zoo layout. I guess my younger son must have slept through this trip since he isn’t in any of the pictures. Poor second kid. The koalas are from Too Cute by Jessica. If you like them, you better grab them up because they are retiring. They also happen to be really cheap right now.

Cricut Explore: Botanical Gardens Double Layout

Another straight forward double layout. I didn’t even have to find a way to work in the date since the year is visible in one of the pictures and the season is obvious. The fall flower group is from Miss Kate’s Cuttables and the scarecrow is from Paper Piecings by Nikki. The pumpkins are from the Cricut Pooh and Friends cartridge. I created a small title in Silhouette Studio because it’s easier to do offsets in that software.

This is where the sync feature in Cricut Design Space comes in very handy. Even with graphic files from so many different sources, it’s super easy to get all your colors coordinated.

Cricut Sesame Street Friends: Busch Gardens Double Layout

I designed this layout in Cricut Design Space. Super Grover and Big Bird are from the Cricut Sesame Street Friends cartridge. I am making an effort to get the date, or at least the year, into my layouts so I can eventually get them ordered chronologically. I attached the date so it would cut out of my upper page mat.

I wanted to trace and use the actual Busch Gardens logo as my title. To be honest, I still find this much easier to do inside Silhouette Studio, so that’s what I did.

I love this weird textured paper I found years ago at Michael’s for these muppet characters. I think it can look like both fur and feathers. Unfortunately, I don’t think they sell it anymore.
