Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas - here's hoping today brings you lots of exciting things this Christmas morning including good food and great times with your family and friends.

This is my post today at Scrapbookpal and I've create a Christmas layout that you'll be able to showcase all your fun Christmas memories.  I haven't added my photos yet because the day has just begun!!

I used the Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge for the title, packages and stockings and A Quilted Christmas cartridge for Santa Claus.  I love mixing my cartridges together for even more great projects.

Beginning with a sheet of red cardstock for the left side and a sheet of green cardstock for the right side, it's easy to set the Christmas mood. 

Left side:
Cut striped paper 3" x 12".
Cut green cardstock 1" x 12" and adhere it under the striped paper.
Adhere the set vertically to the red cardstock.
Die cut Christmas at 3" from white cardstock.
Die cut Christmas + shadow at 3: from white cardstock.
Adhere the layers together and then fussy cut cut the Christmas tree to fit.
Emboss the tree with Cuttlebug Mesh embossing folder before placing on top of the title.
Adhere title to the bottom and add a brad to the "i" in the title.
Die cut 3 packages from white cardstock at 2 1/2", 3" and 3 1/2".
Cut 3 white photo mats - 2 pieces at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and 1 piece at 5" x 7".
Ink the edges with Ranger Antique Linen and align as shown.

Right side:
Cut printed paper 3" x 12".
Cut red cardstock 1" x 12" and adhere it under the printed paper.
Adhere the set horizontally to the green cardstock.
Cut a strip of white cardstock 1" x 12" and adhere to the upper edge, creating a place "hang" the stockings.
Die cut 3 stockings at 3" from red cardstock using a Christmas Cheer cartridge.
Die cut the stocking sections from white cardstock - shift + stocking.
Assemble stockings and "hang" them from the white strip with red brads.
Die cut Santa at  5" from red, white, and black cardstock using A Quilted Christmas cartridge as follows:
Santa - red cardstock
Layer2 + Santa - white fur and beard
Shift Layer2 + Santa - black boots and gloves
Shift Layer1 + Santa - black belt and boots
Adhere the layers together.
Cut 4 white photo mats - 2 pieces 3" x 3", 1 piece 4 1/2" x 6" and 1 piece 4 1/2" x 5".
Ink the edges with Ranger Antique Linen and align as shown.

Merry Christmas and enjoy this fun filled day with family and friends.
