Sneak Peak

First of all, I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. I got a new photo scanner that I hope will be able to put all our old photos in digital format. I did have a multifunctional printer but I didn't like the quality of the pictures.

Here is a sneak peak at the Mini Catalog . Stamp is Mixed Bunch in Tangerine Tango. I used a new punch Blossom and the 3/4 inch circle punch for the center in Cajun Craze. Inked sentiment is Tangerine Tango from Petite Pairs in the main catolog using the oval punches and the scalloped oval punch layered with dimensionals. Paper is Paisley Petals DSP. Cardstock is Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango

Well, last night was our Christmas program at the church. I am usually the one in charge of the program. For part of the program I needed a fake cake, so I decided to use my Cricut. It wasn't really fancy since I am pretty busy with all of the other aspects of Christmas, work, and taking care of my granddaughter and foster child, but this is a little bit of what I did. I made 9 of these boxes from the Tags, Bags, and Boxes cartridge and put candy in and then put the circle on top and cut cardstock for the sides to hold it all in place. One of the girls carried it down the aisle for a birthday cake for Jesus. I think i used Birthday Bash for Happy Birthday and the flowers.

I cut a circle out of George Basic Shapes and then cut in half so that I could run it through the Cuttlebug. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the "icing" on the sides. I also made little gift boxes but I forgot to take a picture of them.
