Exploring Cricut Winter Scene Challenge

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

For my challenge project, I made this scrapbook layout for a picture of my two youngest when it snowed last year.

I started with a 12 x 12 piece of Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue textured cardstock for my base page.  I then cut the snow out of SU Whisper White cardstock.  I used my Gypsy to cut the snow.  I used the Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for this.  I used my Gypsy to merge two cut together and "hide" some of the parts I didn't want to cut.  I then used a sponge and inked some areas to give it dimension using SU Bordering Blue basic ink pad. I used pop dots to add the snow to the base page.

My little girl is cut at 3.75 inches using the Cricut Winter Frolic Cartridge.  I used SU Regal Rose, Rose Red, Creamy Caramel, Basic Black, and Blushing Bride cardstock.  Her face is a stamp from "Peachy Keen Stamps," Princess Faces.

My little guy is cut at 5.25 inches using the same cartridge.  I used SU Basic Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Whisper White and Blushing Bride.  The brown was from my scraps and I'm not sure of the maker.  The face is also "Peachy Keen's" Groom Faces.

The title is from Cricut Winter Wonderland and is cut out of SU Night of Navy, Old Olive,  Regal Rose and Bashful Blue cardstock.  The frame is also from the same cartridge.  I used my Gypsy to manipulate the dimensions by using the toggle icon.  I used SU Regal Rose and Old Olive cardstock. I added the title using Stampin' dimensionals.  All other images were added using my ATG with acid free tape.
