It's Snow Fun Layout


For some readers this winter has been filled with harsh, blustery weather. There has been an abundance of snow and ice, wintery winds and snow days for school children. And though most adults find the wintery weather tedious, children have ideas of their own on what to do with the white stuff.  In that spirit I designed this layout, It's Snow Fun, for Custom Crops.


The cut file uses only two Cricut cartridges, Winter Woodlands and Everyday Paper Dolls, and is available for download at Custom Crops at THIS link.  Full instructions for cutting and assembling the layout are available.  


You should note that this layout uses the mini gel pen holder and mini gel pens to create the blue outline snowflakes.  For those who have not used the mini gel pen holder, you remove the blade housing from your Cricut and replace it with the gel pen holder.  Your Cricut will then draw any image that you would normally cut.

Love this. My daughter couldn't resist taking a picture of the snow (living in southern Georgia, you have to record it when it happens!) TFS

This is a cute page! Do you need a deep cut housing and blade to cut glittered paper? Love the glittery snowflakes! Thanks for sharing! Diane

Susan said...

No Diane, I did not use glitter paper. I cut white cardstock and add stickles over the cut! No deep blade needed!!!

Thanks,
Susan
