BBTB2 - Christmas Tag You're It

This week's challenge at BBTB2 is a Christmas tag - our hostess is calling this "Tag You're It".

I made this using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, cutting the ornament at 5", using white cardstock as the base and gold glitter paper for the detail.  The poinsetta was cut at 4 different sizes, creased and layered to give it a 3D effect.  Gold gemstones were added in the middle.  The name tag was also cut from Artiste, and the white name is cut using Don Juan, that cut can be done at 1/2" very easily, so I use it a lot.  The beads and ribbon were from my stash, I know I wanted to add a spring or a bow at the top, and this just jumped out at me.

Hop on over to to see all the Christmas tags the team has created.   TAG - YOU ARE IT!

Ready for Winter - Snow Layout

This week's challenge at Bitten by the Bug is Winter.  It doesn't snow in my area of Northern California, but lately it's sure cold enough that we feel like we live in the Sierras.  Here is a layout I did of a few of the portraits I had purchased of my granddaughter all dressed up for Winter.  Head on over to BBTB2 to see what else our great designers have to share this week.

The word "SNOW" was done with Speaking of Winter cartridge and the cute little penguin is from the Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge.   Stay warm everyone!
