Sunday Project at Exploring Cricut

Welcome to the Sunday project for Exploring Cricut. Today I have created a snowflake shape card using the cartridges Art Philosophy and Joys of the Season .  This was a really easy card.  In Art Philosophy I picked a shadow of a snowflake cut it 5 inches and welded two pieces together.  The dark blue snow flake is also from Art Philosophy and cut at 4.25 inches.  The top snowflake is cut from Joys of the Season and cut at 3.5 inches.  I added stickles and pearls.  On the inside I cut the same snowflake as the base of the card and cut it at 4.75 inches.  The little tag on the inside is from Art Philosophy and cut at 3 inches.  The stamp is one I had in my collection.

Silhouette Saturday with PPBN Designs

Welcome to another Silhouette Saturday project. I had another project that I was working on for today, but school was out Friday so I had my little granddaughter and did not finish it so you will see that one next week! Today I am sharing another project done with the cute files from PPBN Designs.  I am way behind in scrapbooking so I am trying to get some pages done while the weather is so cold and this is some pages from 2011! Can you say behind a little!  I love this page and it was perfect for my little one who has every Mickey Mouse they make I think!  Sorry there was a glare on the picture from the light, but it was gloomy outside so no good lighting.  Be sure to head over and take a look at all the cute images that Nikki has on her blog!
