Fantabulous Cricut "Deck The Halls" Crawl!

Welcome to Fantabulous Cricut "Deck The Halls" Crawl!! It is FCCB's third Fantabulous Crawl (their version of a blog hop) and my very First Blog Hop.  I can't tell you how excited and thrilled I am to be a part of this!!


So, with the Christmas Holiday quickly approaching, we are having a "Deck The Halls" Crawl.
All of our very talented and creative Design Team members will be featuring an original Christmas/Holiday-themed project that could be used to decorate and spruce up their homes for the Holidays!


If you just crawled over from the amazing Cathy, you're in the right place.  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our FCCB Crawl, then click Here!


Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some amazing inspiration and fun ideas.  There will also be some yummy Candy along the way and a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Deck The Halls" project at FCCB!! 


Ok, so for my project....


I used my sewing machine to make the border around the cardstock.
I then adhered it to the canvas with adhesive spray.






I decided to make this Canvas layout.  I just LOVE, LOVE making these.  It is such a great way to display your pictures and showcase you work at the same time.


I used Disney Pooh Font to cut out my letters.
I cut out the tags with Tags,Bag, Boxes & More
I used my white gel pen for the stitching around the tags.
You can add any kind of embellishments, ribbons, gems, or anything
you can think of to make your own masterpiece!

I used acrylic paint to color around the canvas.
The nice thing about these is that you can hang them,
put them on a shelf or on a stand. 


I also made some Christmas ornaments.  It was my first time using vinyl and I have to say it was easier than I thought it was going to be 8)

      


I used Paper Lace, Joys of the Season, Alphalicious, and Car Decals for the names and the cuts.  I also added Stickles.  Scrappin with my Bug has a great tutorial on how to make these super cute ornaments in case you want to try them.


Now it's your turn! Let's see your Christmas/Holiday-themed Decor projects!!  Don't forget to include your Cricut Cut somewhere on your project.


So for your next stop, you will be crawling over to the very talented  Erin.  Head on over for some more amazing inspiration!  When you're done, make sure to link up your projects to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered for the Grand Prize!!!


Speaking of which I have some yummy candy for you!! 






All you need to do is leave me a comment and be a follower!! Easy peasy!! (must have a USA shipping address).  I will pick a winner using Random.org and announce the winner on Wednesday, Dec. 22nd, so you have until Dec.21st to enter (one entry per person).  Good luck everyone and thank you so much for coming by!!


Happy Holidays Everyone!!
