Erica's Craft Room 25 Days Of Christmas! December 13th Penguins!

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room

25 Days of Christmas,

with 25 Cricut projects a day.

Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....

and every day in December.

Welcome back to my blog!! I so appreciate each and everyone who visits and comments on my blog! I'm so excited to get new followers!! THANK  YOU!
Today's project I used Jolly Holiday's and Winter Lace Cricut cartridges.  I was really excited about this project!  I bought this soap dispenser last year and knew what I wanted to with it.  My first time at trying vinyl on a project!  I also used my new favorite Glittering Snow by DecoArt
I cut the penguin from Jolly Holiday's at 4" using my gypsy to hide a few features.  I layered on the feet, nose and white inside body first then attached it to the black vinyl then placed it on the soap dispenser.  Next I added the "snow" with the Glittering Snow.  It has to dry 24 hours before you use the dispenser.  Next I cut the snowflakes out of the Winter Lace cartridge at 1".  Before I did my cuts I always cut it out on paper first to make sure the size will work with my project.  I used the paper  cuts to make a gift tag.  I like how it turned out!  Thanks for visiting! Hope it inspires you to create one of your own!      ♥♥ Christina ♥♥
