Santa's Helper - Gift Using Cricut

This challenge was to make a gift for a loved one using your cricut. My oldest son asked for some Guinness Beer Antiquated Posters - I found some 'Pub Glasses' and decided to make an etched glass picture to go with the glassware. I used the Doodletype cartridge and cut the stencil from vinyl and used some glass etching compound. It's a little difficult to see the letters but I think he'll really like it because it is unique.
Tip: Using the vinyl without transfer tape can be a little tricky when trying to line it up!
This tag was for Just Buggin Challenge #15 - Winter or Christmas themed project. I was too late to enter it into the challenge, but I had already created the mistletoe and had the design for the tag in my head, so here it is.

Mistletoe - Storybook Cartridge - Branch
Tag - Tags, Bag, Boxes and More - Scallop Top

The Merry Christmas is from Stampin Up, Punches Three and punched with the Scallop Square and the Scallop Circle; also used some mini pearls and mini rhinestone bling.

Just Buggin #13 - Sewing

This is the second Just Buggin Challenge I tried - to use Stitching of some kind...I stamped a snowflake from Stampin Up 'The Snowflake Spot' and stitched it with embroidery floss.
Tag - Tags Bags Boxes and More
