Merry Christmas Cricut Santa Layout

Merry Christmas Layout

Here is a layout I made using what I call “straight” Cricut. This simply means no design studio or gypsy. Just the Cricut Expression and some Cartridges.

So here’s a view of the entire layout.
I used the following cartridges to complete this super fun layout.
George and Basic Shapes
Paper Doll Dress Up
Everyday Paper Dolls
From My Kitchen
Christmas Cheer
Celebrate with Flourishes
Create A Critter
Winter Woodland

Okay here’s the recipe
  • I used Winter Woodland for the sleigh and cut it at 4”
    • I cut the sleigh bottom in white and then “inked” the “ski” part in gold ink. The picture doesn’t show how shiny that part is.
  • The presents were just patterned paper that I cut into squares.
  • The ribbons-bows were from Create A Critter pg. 73 – layer 3 cut at 3.5”
    • The little circles that cut from this cut I used for the reindeer noses.
  • The light borders for the mats were from Create A Critter pg. 73
  • The Sack was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up pg. 72 Accessory 3
  • The Christmas trees in the background were cut from Create A Critter pg. 33
  • The wreath was from Celebrate Flourishes second row, 7th key.
  • Santa’s Suit parts were cut from Christmas Cheer pg. 99 cut at 6”
  • Santa’s Hat was from Paper Doll Dress Up pg. 72 cut at 7”
  • Santa’s Beard and hair were from Paper Doll Dress Up pg. 72 cut at 7”
  • Santa’s Head was from George and Basic Shapes Circle cut at 2.75”
  • Santa’s nose was from George and Basic Shapes.
  • Santa’s Arms were cut From From My Kitchen pg. 77
    Santa’s Body was from George and Basic Shapes. Circle at 3.75”
  • Santa’s eyes were from a punch, but you could cut some small circles out of George and Basic Shapes like the nose.
  • The reindeer were cut from Create A Critter pg. 69 at 3.5” – both layers
    • I used the black out feature so I could use my own eyes. These eyes were a Martha Stewart “tear drop” punch. Pretty small in size.
  • The Antlers were from Christmas Cheer pg. 86 cut at 3.5”-shadow
  • The nose was from the circles cut from the present bows (see above)
  • The “rope” was some gold floss that I had.
  • The Merry Christmas title was cut from Celebrate with Flourishes.
  • The various photo corners were from Picturesque.

Here is one last look at the entire layout. Now it is just waiting for some pictures and a little journaling and we will be good to go.
