Cricut: The Official Blog
Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Just a quick and fun little post for tonight/Wednesday. Since this week's blog candy is the Winter Frolic cart, I thought I'd show you a little sample of what it can do. I'm in love with this cartridge!!! Here's a little layout I made at a recent crop. Nothing too fancy, but the papers and cuts are cute, so how can ya go wrong?


Patterned papers are from Imaginisce. I believe all of the cardstock, ribbon and buttons are from Stampin' Up. I was a bad girl and didn't take detailed notes, but I'm pretty sure that the characters were cut at 3 1/2". The title is about 4". Of course, I had to ink everything, add my white dots and stitching, and use pop dots.


Don't forget to leave a comment on today's post for a chance to win the Winter Frolic cart this week, and come back each day for more chances.

Adorable layout Monique! The kids playing in the snow are so sweet! I love this cart too, I've used it so many times already. I used the ice skating and snow angel girls to embellish gift bags I made, they were so cute!

I do not understand how you keep coming up with such cute layouts. I live in a ski resort town in Colorado, so IF I were to win the cartridge, I would get a lot of great use out of it : )

Thanks

Here is yet one more cartridge that I have added to my wish list. EAch day I read though my blog circle, I find not only great ideas, but also more things that I need for my crafts.

I live in NE where we get snow, and this will be a must cart when my grandaughter gets old enough to play out in the snow.

Oh my gosh, is this ADORABLE!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

Angela said...

I love the snow angel kid. Beautiful layout. This is a cart that I don't have, but would love of course. We don't do snow much, but I get pics of my Sister, B-I-L and four boys from Montana. They have tons of snow and I don't know how they live!

kristyscraps said...

So very cute!

**Treefrog** said...

Oh this is such a cute layout, I love it! I have been trying to win this cartridge on ebay for over a week and keep getting outbid so maybe that's telling me I may win it from you, lol! I can hope can't I, lol! Thanks and Take Care!
((Hugs)) Theresa

Annettewith6 said...

No snow here....ever... but who knows with global warming, things might change :-) Those cute characters could certainly morph into surfers and sun bunnies with a little imagination. I just wish I had the time....and a clear space to start playing again. My poor expression still hasn't felt a surge of power...not even once.
Thanks for the surge of creativity this site gives me though.

Danielle Phillips said...

This is super cute! Makes me want to live somewhere cold :)

This is a great layout. It inspires us on the east coast with all of the snow we are having to find time to go scrap and create. Thanks so much.

Kathleen said...

So cute - it will go well with all of the snow pictures I'm sure to take with yet another Blizzard here on the East Coast.

Thanks for the giveaway and for always sharing your creativity with us.

This layout is awesome!

Scrappy Chic said...

Typically I hate winter...the daylight hours are shorter, it's cold and just grey outside for the most part (I think I suffer slightly from seasonal depression) but then I see this. I love how happy the snow makes the kids and you captured this perfectly in the layout. Thank you for sharing.

cjtatman said...

Sooo cute....I really want this cartridge. Have fun at CHA!!!

Vickie said...

Such a cute LO. I for sure want to win this cartridge because I now need to have it. TFS. Enjoy CHA

RAP said...

What a fun layout and a great example of what the cartridge can do.

MotherMonkee said...

Dang it, I was really trying to resist buying this cart (it is the ONLY Christmas/Winter one I DON'T have) I was honestly trying to be good! But between this LO and the one Wendy did awhile back I may have to break down and get it. UNLESS of course I win it this week!!

Cheryl said...

I have been in love with this cart since it came out and still haven't bought it. You're selling me on it, big time! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this layout. The colors are fantastic.
