Blog Hop Day 2!

Welcome back to the Cooking With Cricut Christmas Blog Hop, day 2! I have a fun new project for you- even if I do say so myself ;) This project is utilizes another of the adorable images- this time Gingerbread House 2009.

For this project- I tried to do something new for me. Shocker! Anyway, I made this candy dish for my desk... Or as a gift. It was really supposed to be a gift for a friend, but then I've really fallen in love with it, so we'll see. lol. Anyway, I used basic cardstock from my stash and then ran all the white, minus the smoke curl through my xyron and added white glitter. The smoke curl got light blue stickles. The gingerbread house is adhered to an acrylic box that used to hold a collectible- the beanie baby had already been given to my daughter a while ago and the box needed a reinvention ;)

Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog. There will be some prizes along the way as well as a few different ways to win at!

When I saw this cut file of Melin's, it just screamed Christmas card to me... Maybe not surprising since most of my crafts end up as cards ;) The sentiment is cut at 3.5" and paper used is DCWV & K and Company. The beige layer is Cuttlebugged with polka dots and I used glossy accents on the word Christmas and stickles on the snowflake!

Now, take a look at this adorable file (cut or digi) from and make sure and leave a comment for a chance to win it! For a second chance to win, come back tomorrow to see a new project and leave another comment!
