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
Picturesque
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.
