Exploring Cricut Project - Christmas

If you are looking for the Exploring Cricut Christmas in July go here. You have until Saturday, July 21st for blog candy and challenge:)
_______________________________________________________________________________

Hello Everyone! It is my turn to share at Exploring Cricut and I decided to keep with the theme of our challenge. I created a 2 page spread for Christmas. I thought I had finished all of 2010 Christmas and found some I had missed. 


I kept it fairly simply and will probably journal on the blue rectangle. I have to admit that my journaling has seen better days, especially on activities that we do yearly. I tend to just put the month and year.



One of the nice things about the Gypsy is being able to lay out the design prior to cutting. This can be done with DS or CCR. I was glad I remembered to cut my geometric shapes with the Gypsy. It was so much faster than me cutting and measuring the squares and rectangles. 


I added a red nose and black hooves with Stickles.

Fabulous layout pages!! Love the reindeer and elf. All of the colors are great. Love your photos, too. My journaling leaves a lot to be desired. I tend to be at a loss for words when it comes to writting them down. :)
