This is the final round in our Cricut Design Space Challenge and our groups theme is Winter Comfort. I'm going to be sharing some simple things that can be shown in your home cause where else would you rather be in during the winter season than Home?
The theme that Cricut gave us is Holiday Crafts/Gear. This one was a little bit of a blur for me on some of my projects. I don't really know if it has to do with the fact that I'm so busy, I'm in a funk or that I just want to hang out and watch court shows. Judge Judy, why do you have to appeal to me so much? lol!
When I first got my hands on some of Cricut's Window Cling Vinyl, I was really excited. For instructions on how to cut and to see how I used it for my Halloween decorations, click here. Best of all, my kids loved helping me with it. My son, Siaki, has been so impressed with all that I've been doing with my Explore lately. He's been wondering how I've been able to do drawings, shoes and snowflakes. He even tried this morning to put some felt into it and just tell it what to cut not realizing that you must have the computer element to it. He can be pretty funny!
They love to play with my projects and sometimes it's ok, other times I get a little cranky. This Snowman was perfect. Who doesn't love Frozen and the now infamous saying ‘Do you want to build a Snowman?' I knew that with the Cricut Window Cling Vinyl I could accomplish some fun crafts for my kids. I started with 3 basic circles shaped at 6.5″, 9″ and 11.5″, I used the Snowman from A Quilted Christmas cartridge for the hat, arms, scarf, face and buttons. For the carrot I used an entirely different snowman from the Doodlecharms cartridge. I just sized them all to be in-comparison to my 6.5″ circle.
I allowed Leila to put it all together and she has changed it at least two times a day since! I am that crazy mom that has a hard time letting my kids do things, allowing them to be creative. I have to remind myself that this is how I became creative and I need to just let them be free. It's amazing how much of a perfectionist she is and I remember being as meticulous as she is when I was that age.
Again, I can't explain how much I love my Cricut Explore with all that it can do and how simple it has made crafting for me. You want to definitely want to stick around and grab the deal that is coming for Black Friday, it's Ah-Maz-ing!
I want to say thank you to everyone for their support last round and me making the Top 10 with my Holly Berry Wreath! It was a lot of fun to win and it definitely felt nice to feel recognized and that this blogging is starting to pay off. I'm really enjoying reaching out to everyone and hearing everyone's reactions. When I started blogging, I wasn't prepared for the friendships I'd make. They have really brightened my life and I'm so thankful for that and this opportunity that I get to work with so many wonderful people!
