Chirp Spotlight - The Night Before Christmas Album

I am so excited to have my album as a Chirp
spotlight!!! I have to say, "Thank You" to all of
you that have dropped hints and sent emails
requesting that I be spotlighted in the Chirp.
I appreciate all of you! Also to my good friend
Kristin aka K.McIntyre on the Cricut MB. She is
the one that took the time to compile all of the
information needed and submit it to the Chirp!
Thank you all for this opportunity to be in the
Chirp spotlight.

I am reposting the original thread so it's easy for
everyone to find. Hope you all enjoy a 2nd round. :)

My goal with this book was to tell the story of
The Night Before Christmas. It turned out even
better than I had imagined. : )

Cricut cartridges needed for this book are:
G&BS, CC, CN, JOTS, Keystone, PDDU, DC & ACY.
A list of cartridges and abbreviations can be found in my sidebar.

Santa has landed on the roof.

I think Santa has been caught and is trying to
hide behind the Christmas tree.

Even the little mouse is trying to get a peek.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.

Santa's going to check his list twice.

Shiny red cardstock is from DCWV. I thought
it was perfect for the sleigh.

  10. You are amazing, I would love to try making this book. Do you have a tutorial for it?

  11. WOW! I am so inspired to go play in more depth with my carts! I mainly use my Cricut for scrapping big accents for my 12x12 pages, but you've got me curious... am going to go play a little with this amazing album idea you've created!!! LOVE IT!

  17. I tried to download one of your cut file and after it attempted to download I got an error message and I keep getting it and it is kicking me out of my design studio. Has anyone else told you about having this problem?

  18. Anonymous, Keystone was only for the font and can easily be substituted with another font cartridge.

    Rebecca, the only problem I've heard is that if you haven't updated your DS, it can cause an error. Try updating and hopefully that will take care of it.

    Thank you Everyone!!!!

  19. It is nice to see good talent recognized. Bravo!!

  20. It is truly a work of art!! Congrats!!
