New Release Tuesday

If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Jodies Bobbleheads before, this is a great opportunity to do so. Bugaboo has Halloween, ChristmasThanksgiving,  and now these. Run over to the Challenge Blog and see what the Designers have to share with you today and then run on over to the Bugaboo Shop and pick up some for yourselves.
I used Basic Grey Oliver paper collection to make this card  and the sentiment and banana is from a clear stamp from the Dollar Bin somewhere. Cute Hu? It felt strange making a card that was not Christmas themed. Since there are only 4 days left until Christmas,  I guess that will be true until next fall. oh well maybe Christmas in July. I will have some great layout pages to share though. 

I wanted to share with you what I did Friday evening. I have been buying SVG files from various companys since I got my Cricut months ago. But I don't always remember what I have so I'm trying to figure out a system that will let me see what I have. These files are from Lettering Delights and they are called Alpine Snowflakes. I am so pleased to have found this site and I hope you will check them out. They have Clip Art  files, Fonts, Alaphabets, Graphics, All sorts of goodies and they are very simple to use.     
   Okay, so I opened each file, sized the snowflake to 2"high and then broke it apart and layed it out in a 3"X6" space and then cut it from 4 different types of paper. I did that with all 10 of them and then I used one of the outlines as a stencil and did this using my Distress Inks. The upside to all of that work is .....

A whole bunch of Snowflakes just ready to go on a page.  These still need centers , like rhinestones or buttons or stickles. How fun is this. Maybe I should do a little Blog Candy. Come back Christmas Day and I'll see what kind of treat I can share with you.
Have a great day everyone.
