Naughty or nice?*****Second Post Today******

This is a layout for my sister, another Christmas gift. I took this pic of her and played with it in photo impact....so much fun. I used a DCWV background paper from the rustic stack. She adores red birds so I cut these from my 50 States cart. I added some black paint to bring out the details, gold stickles for the beaks and a little pearl for the eyes. The large scalloped circle is cut from Stamping from some black glitter paper. I used the same paper to cut the title, it is from Blackletter. The grey branches are cut from Home Decor.
I again used my 50 States cart to cut the pinecones and needles. I added some distress stickles to accent the cones. The holly is from Stretch Your Imagination.
The snowflakes are all from A Child's Year. I cut 2 sizes and used one small one to accent the center of the large one....then some stickles for some glitz!
A couple of more close ups of the birds. I used white pearl paint to add bits of 'snow' around the layout.
Thanx for stopping by again.....love each and every comment.


  1. Sandy, this is stunning. I love what you did with you sister's photo. You design the most gorgeous pages ever. I really love how you maximize your cricut. I would have never thought about the 50 states being so versatle. You make me want to use my cricut.
