Day 18: No Room at the Inn

Welcome to Day 18 of the 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Showcase.  Today our Designers are celebrating the Nativity and Angels Rejoicing in their projects!

In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered.  This was the first registration and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria.  All went to their own towns to be registered.  Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David.  He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expecting a child.  While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child.  And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. (Luke 2:1-7)

Michelle created this sweet step card using the Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up
cartridge!   Visit her blog for all the details.

Don't you just love the card Evelyn created using yesterday's free digital stamp
from!   Visit her blog for more details.

Christel used the Cricut Inspired Heart cartridge to create this lovely
ornament.  Check out her blog for more details.

Yolie used today's FREE cutting file from for
this beautiful 8" x 10" framed piece.  Check out all the details on her blog!

Yolie also used this adorable angel bear digital stamp from to create this super cute card!

Melin used cutting files from to create this layout.

Melin used the same cutting files for this card.

Melin used her Cricut and Inspired Heart Cartridge
to create this version of the layout.

Again, she used the Inspired Heart cartridge to create this card version.

Lastly, Here is a layout Melin created using the Quick Quotes Club Q December kit
with a few cutting file elements from The image on the
bottom right is a candle that says...Silent Night. It is a reflection of the song...
Silent Night, commemorating the birth of our Savior.

I really liked the angel digital file from yesterday so I hate to be the bearer of bad news -- "Herald" is spelled incorrectly on the download. I noticed it in the designers card, which is beautiful. Sorry to post it here with all the other comments but I didn't know how else to reach you.
Thanks for all these downloads; they are great.
