Oh. My. Goodness. I have never had the design and layout of a complicated project go so quickly. I managed to get the whole thing laid out, sized and saved over the course of my lunch hour at work one day. Seriously.
Santa, the fireplace, tree, cat, mouse. Every image came from the Cricut Library, and are available with the monthly subscription. Most of them I already owned the cartridges so that wasn't an issue for me. What I'm saying is this - the subscription is totally worth it, even if you have tons of linked cartridges.
So, I'll just let you look through all the Christmas-y goodness contained within. I plan on adding pictures from this year. We are going home (we didn't get to go last year) so my 2 year old son will be celebrating with his cousins again. They're going to have a blast. They (Max & Will) are 4 and 2 and we miss them terribly - along with Grandma, Grandpa, and the aunts and uncles too.
Patterned paper and chipboard elements are from Graphic 45's T'was The Night Before Christmas Collection.
(Apparently the cat did bump my tripod when I took this - Oops!)
My flip album!
Cookies and milk for Santa....and not a creature stirring!
Not even the mouse! By the way - that mouse is about 1/4" high. And the Cricut Explore cut him out FLAWLESSLY!
How about a hidden picture spot behind the fireplace?
