First lot of Xmas cards :)

Ok well here are my first Xmas cards, I have this week off work so I'm planning to get all my cards, table decorations and some gifts made, lol! if that happens it will be a miracle.

Theme this year is fairies & snowflakes :)
Fairies and background papers for inside of cards from My Craft Studio Walking in a winter wonderland. Baubles are glittered with Crafter's Companion iridescent glitter spray and mounted on to acetate, ribbon from Hobby Craft, glitter card from Create & Craft. snowflakes cut using Marie Anne dies, the white snowflakes were sprayed with CC stick and stay and glittered using glitterpot iridescent crystal glitter.

More Xmas cards, these are snowflake, shaker easel cards. The actual easel card was made in Sure Cuts Alot 2 by welding together 2 snowflakes, there is also a single snowflake and a snowflake with a aperture cut out to create the shaker part of the card. Fairies are again from Walking in a winter wonderland. Mounted on to silver mirri from C&C. Al sandwiched together with some Flowersoft polar white. Small snowflakes cut on Cricut, again just sprayed with CC stick n stay and glittered. Sentiments printed in MCS and cut out using the centerpoint feature on the Cricut.

A couple of projects I made using my new Cricut :)

First project using my new Cricut Create, totally awesome new toy :D and Sure Cuts Alot 2 software. Lettering and russian dolls from the Cindy Loo cartridge the pennant was an SVG file I downloaded from Paper Creativity http://papercreativity.blogspot.com/.

Tiny Prima styley paper roses, how cute are these :) Cut out on Cricut using Sure Cuts Alot 2. Rose petal shapes made from Littlemissstamper on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dumUmjFHHBQ, leaves are from a dingbat. Tutorial for making these is by Cathy @
Just cut out from C&C super smooth and coloured with Promarkers and sprayed with glimmer mist before assembling.
