December 25th layout (for Exploring Cricut)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  That is our Exploring Cricut challenge for this week-to make a Christmas project of some sort with a cricut cut.  As I'm in the midst of all things Christmas related at the moment, this was the PERFECT challenge!   The fun whimsical cuts are from the CM Tis the Season cartridge, including my journal box.  I added Santa's belt buckle for a cute little addition on the journal box, along with a stamped title.

We'd love to see you join our challenge with any kind of Christmas project…maybe that homemade paper crafting gift you are making for a special someone on your list?  Or a card or layout?  It's wide-open, so have some fun with it!

Did you know Bazzill has started making some print papers?  I didn't until I saw this Christmas background paper at Archievers, which is always well stocked with the Bazzill solid paper.   Then I saw this gorgeous heavy weight Christmas paper and was surprised to discover it was from Bazzill!  I had to have some to make Christmas layouts, even though that wasn't what I was there to buy!  (I know, I know...I'm easily distracted by shiny objects, er paper, lol!  Especially when I'm supposed to be shopping for boring things like adhesive.)

I'm also going to link this to the Fantabulous Cricut Anything But a Card Challenge this week.
