I had the Cricut fired up this weekend. My faithful cropping pal, Joann, was in the home stretch of completing her Christmas cards and I was determined to finish a couple of decorated pillow boxes to hold holiday gifts. My Cricut was humming as we cut Christmas tree shapes, labels with ribbon slits, outlines for our stamped images, pillow boxes, rosettes and more! As we flipped through the Artbooking image guide, I knew my next project would be a Winter Wonderland layout. I’m attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tonight and I plan to take a bunch of photos of the snow on Main Street.
This layout key is featured in this week’s Artbooking Made Easy episode. Talk about perfect timing! I hope this will inspire you to get your camera and your Cricut going.
