Pictures with Santa

Here is a very cute layout I found online and I incorporated some of my own touches…some chalking, some glitter and some bling!!! I hope you like it. I think the site was Michigan Scrapbooking. If you would like to make this site, you can let me know what names you would like me to use with my Make the Cut software using the new Print and Cut technique, I will add your children’s and or pets names to the Santa list, also I used Make the Cut program to do the Santa will be back at 1 stop sign! I love this program and I will be happy to help any of you learn how to use this wonderful software…It is awesome to use with our Cricuts or whatever die cutting machine that you may have. Make the Cut works on many of these die cutting machines. So here’s the layout:


Not sure why but the colors are way off on this picture, the sleigh is fire engine red, and on the mats, the corners are a deep almost burgandy red. The trees are Christmas green and a shade lighter green in the middle. I added some glitter to the trees, the list on the sleigh include my children’s names and our pets!

Recipe: (4) 3 3/4 x 6 photo mats

The snow is a 2 1/2 x 12 inch strip that I put the pieces back to back and then cut my hills and valleys. The papers used are glitter papers that you can purchase at our local scrapbooking store SCRAPS!


See how neat the stop sign, it was printed first and then using the Make the Cut sofware, I placed the paper on my mat, lining it up with the virtual mat that was on my screen, and presto, hit cut and you see it…perfectly cut stop sign with printing on it….did I say I love this program????
