Snow Day layout (for Exploring Cricut)

Today is my day for the daily project for Exploring Cricut!  I have a Snow Day layout for today.  After having two very large snow storms in the last week, I had many more pictures of the kids playing in the snow!  (I am really ready to be DONE with snow now, but the weather does not seem to be cooperating!)  I used more of the wonderful Winter Wishes collection from Echo Park for my layout, along with the Winter Woodlands cartridge.  I absolutely love the paper from this Echo Park collection and the mittens and stocking cap from WW just seemed made for it! The stickers and journal box are also from the collection.   Hope it is slightly less cold and snowy for all of you!






Cricut:
Winter Woodland-title cut at 3 1/2 in., mittens and hat cut at 2 1/2 in.
Paper-Echo Park prints, solids are CTMH and CM
brown chalk ink

Note:  The Winter Woodands font with the cutouts is beautiful, but I find it prone to snagging and tearing while cutting.  I've found it best to use a slow cutting speed and reasonably sturdy paper for the best results. I've had bad outcomes when using thin paper.
