Reindeer Candy Cane....

Hello & Happy Monday Morning Fellow Crafters!
Did you enjoy your weekend? I hope you all
got lots of stuff accomplished! I was busy and the weather
took a nasty change! We were up in the high 60's, then
a storm came through and dropped us to the low 40's!
I know some of you have it a lot worse than that... 
but that's cold for me! I guess Winter is here in
Southern Utah!! LOL

Today, I've got a Christmas Card for ya -
I'm using a KaDoodle Bug Designs Svg File

Here's my Project --

As you can tell, as it gets closer to the holiday I tend to use
my Print N Cut a lot more! I LOVE making paper pieces
but they can be time consuming and when you have to complete
your Christmas Card list, you want whats easiest to work with and
for me that's Print N Cut! :)

Here's the Card Recipe --

Card Base is a 4 3/4" Square
Card Stock - Bo Bunny, Stampin' Up, Georgia Pacific
Designer Paper - Echo Park (The Story of Christmas)

Little Deer...

Hello & Happy Wednesday to ya!
How's your week going so far? 
Mine is busy, since I'm working! :) 
But it's still a great week! :)

Today I wanted to showcase another adorable
KaDoodle Bug Designs SVG File --

Just like Monday's post - If you're looking
for ways to mass produce your Christmas cards
Print N Cut is another quick way to do it!

Here's what I created --

 As you can tell, I used the Print N Cut Feature in my
Silhouette Program... I created the shape first, and left it 
highlighted, then went into my library and double clicked
this CUTE Reindeer image.... It appeared in my shape
like magic! LOL Now you can do it a different way as well....
You can make your shape, then go to the library and add
the image to the mat... then re-size it to the size you want and
place it on top of the shape... then click the "GROUP" option!
Both ways work great and easy to use! :)

Here's the Recipe on my card --

Card Stock - Georgia Pacific, Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - Echo Park (The Story of Christmas)
Cute Little Reindeer Print N Cut - KaDoodle Bug Designs
Sequins & Sentiment - My Craft Spot (Out of Business)
Wood Veneer Snowflake - American Crafts
Twine - Trendy Twine (Candy Cane)
Label Die - Craftin' Desert Diva's

Thanks so much for stopping by!
