Hi everyone, my name is Christina and I will be your blog host this week!
I hope you've had a chance to visit the store to view all the fabulous Christmas cards in the Showcase - I know there has been some teasing on the blog - but if not, I would suggest you rush in and see all the great designs!
This was my first year as part of the Showcase and I wanted to do something that showed what you can do with one of my favourite tools - my Cricut!!
Here are two of the cards that I made using the Echo Park Everybody loves Christmas range:
There were two things that I wanted to show with these cards 1. some thinking outside of the box - literally - trying a shape that wasn't a square or rectangle which is so easy with the fabulous range of Christmas cartridges available and 2. how easy layering is with the cricut and my new favourite toys - the cricut design studio and gypsy - resizing of your layers is just so easy and the fact that you can lay out your entire card on one cutting mat - just awesome! You can also overlay everything on the virtual mat to see that all your proportions are about right - such a timesaver - particularly if you are like me and will cut multiple pieces to get just the perfect size.
I am in love with all the new Christmas Cartridges - Christmas Cards, Winter Collection, Winter Woodlands (loving the font!) and my old favourite, Joys of the Season. Check them out in store now so that you have plenty of time to get all those cards made in time for Christmas!
Later in the week, I'm going to upload some photos of some fabulous canvases that we did for my two nieces' bedrooms using the Winnie the Pooh and Tinkerbell cartridges - I think you will be impressed (even if I do say so myself)!
Have a fabulous week!
