Tis the season to get the flu I suppose. My little one came home sick Tuesday and is still quite poorly. I have also come down with a stomach bug, so there is not fun to be had at my house. That being said I am re-running a favorite layout that I did several years ago. The cartridges are all oldies, but goodies!
Today I have a single page layout for all of you scrapbookers out there. The Layout is made using the Happily Ever After cartridge and the Hannah Montana cartridge.
When designing this layout, I had a purpose in mind. I wanted a layout that could easily be used for those pictures of your children with Santa. Every year, I haul my little one up to one of our local malls to get his picture taken with Santa. He absolutely loves it. It is also a great picture to scrapbook. So, the idea to make a page that would be easily duplicated for this purpose was born.
The Happily Ever After cartridge is perfect for such a layout because of the the little Snow White cottage. With a few color changes it easily turns into Santa's Workshop. This was cut at 3" on my Cricut. Just so you know, this cut has a few little pieces so at 3" it has the potential to be a bit of a challenge. Don't let that scare you though. Crafting tweezers eliminate most complications with the small pieces.
The trees are also from Happily Ever After. They are cut at 1 1/4" and 1 1/2". These were very easy to assemble.
The center window is made to look as though you are looking right into Santa's Shop. It was cut at 10", I also trimmed the extra fancy piece at the top and the bottom most tier of the window itself. I did this mainly so it would look better on the page, but also I wanted it to look more like it was a window of the cottage. With those extra bits, it looks more stately.
The title is from Hannah Montana using both the 'pop princess' font and the regular font. Here is the cut file.
I used liquid applique on the cottage for the snow effect. I also did some faux stitching with my zig two way pen.
Don't forget that I am giving away a Snow Folks cartridge this week!
