Welcome to the Giving Back Blog Hop! We wanted to give back to the person who has given so much to us! So, this is in honor of Erica from My Cricut Craftroom. She is such a kind and caring person! We wanted to do something kind for her!
You should have come from Rosa at: http://kleymanr.blogspot.com/ . If you are starting at my blog, you will want to start with Kat’s Blog: http://katscrapfever.blogspot.com so you don’t miss any of the great layouts. When you get done hopping, you will want to go to Erica’s Facebook Page : http://www.facebook.com/EricasCraftRoom and leave a comment on her page. We will be randomly selecting someone from those comments to win blog candy.
So for my page I know that Erica loves Christmas, and if you have ever visited her blog you would know how much!! I decided to do a " Secret Santa" theme!
I used The Forever Young, Rock Princess, Sketch Your Imagination, & Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridges. I used a white and red slick marker, Printed papers from DCWV, solid cardstock from Stampin Up!, a misc. Santa Hat I had purchased from Michaels on a clearance from their card decorations, red and clear stickles, Stampin Up! square punch, and misc. fibers from my stash.
I cut the "Santa" gal from the Forever Young cartridge (she is the first one in the book) at 4 3/4".
I cut her hair off and cut new hair from Rock Princess (pg 30) at 2 3/4" . ( I had to play with this a little to get the right size for her, and I had to use my flip feature on my expression. I colored her shoes with my red slick marker, and the buttons on her shirt with my white slick marker. I stuck her hat on with a glue dot.
The tree I cut from Sketch Your Imagination cartridge at 5". I used my red stickles on the bulbs and the clear stickles on the star. I cut the presents with my Stampin Up! square punch and tide fibers to them.
Then I cut out the background with the Elegant Edges cartridge "loops" (pg 35) at 7"
Here is a close up picture of my "Santa" gal and the Tree:
