Christmas Morning Layout by Mandie W.
Today’s project is featuring some of the gorgeous Ecstasy Crafts cut-outs that Kim has started stocking in the Cutters Creek store. Now these exact ones aren’t available *yet* but I’m sure that if you ask Kim really nice to add the “Charlie’s Ark” line to the store she might be persuaded. I personally think these are soooooo cute! The sheet I have is the “Sweet Dreams” one but there are many others including: Closest of Friends, Sharing a Special Moment, and Gardening Friends. These images are so simple to assemble and look stunning in the end.
I made a layout so you could see these aren’t just for card makers (although they make adorable cards too). I took the photos so you could see the top and side views since it is so hard to capture the beautiful dimension in a photo. Once I assembled all four of the characters that came on the sheet I decided that the little girl holding the teddy bear made me think of Christmas morning! Also the little elephant asleep on the present really sealed it! I used photos from Christmas 2008.
I’ve had the “Christmas” title in my stash for about 3 years now and I decided it looked so cute with the papers I chose. I cut out the word “Morning” with my Cricut Nursery Rhymes cartridge and used the Christmas Cheer cartridge for the tree (It’s actually 2 layered together). I also used my 1/8” Scor-Tape to adhere my ric-rac to my layout. The gold chipboard star was sprayed with Yellow Daisy Glimmer Mist.
If you need any more details about this layout, check out my blog: Mandie’s Blog. Please don’t forget to leave us a comment if you love these little characters as much as I do and maybe they will be in the store sometime soon! I will send some blog candy to one lucky commenter!
