1st Dec 2011 - 25 days of Christmas - Christmas Theme

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.

Doris used A Child's Year - Joys of the Season - Wrap it Up and Holiday Cakes Cricut Cartridges to create this Home Decor!  

I love Christmas and the possibilities of creating something new and different and to either keep it or give it as a present.  My vase will be a present before Christmas for my daughter. My project today is making Home decor.  How did I come up with this, you ask, We were in the general dollar store recently looking at the decorations and this had a vase with a few Christmas bulbs in it. (I think someone opened a pkg and dumped some in there) - a lighbulb went off...

Inside the vase is silver and gold bells and red shiny bulbs along with cut strands of silver & gold ribbon.

BELIEVE is cut using A Child's Year at a total of 5.29 in Height and 1in in width.  Joys of the Season is from Wrap It Up cartridge cut at 3.24 in both in H & W.    Holiday Cakes cartridge was cut for the snowflakes - cut at 3.94 h & 4.87w.   This has a cluster of snowflakes which are simple yet awesome!

The vase, bells, and bulbs are all from the Dollar General.  Twine gold and silver are from Stampin' Up!  The

Using ICICLE from Stickles added a lot of UMPH to the snowflakes and to the vase and around the rim of the vase as well!  What do you think??

A plain vase with gold & silver bells and red bulbs from the dollar general store was dumped into this pretty plain vase.. BUT not for long...

jumped ahead a little... this is the end of the making...  I used stickles to enhance the white Vinyl words.  See the gold & silver ribbon inside the vase.  The snowflakes shiimer with the stickles too.

plain ol joys of the season, but not for long as they get a little bling of stickles too!  The bells off of the word is stckled too!  A brad makes it a 3d pretty look onto the ribbon.

I love this look and might use this for my blog hop in Jan. (picture it perfect)  Need a better photo shoot though :)

all done-  I hope you like it and have enjoyed the pictures I have taken :)


  1. I love it. I do something similar with a square vases and bulbs and was debating if I wanted to add snowflakes. Now I just might do that and add the stickles.

  2. Great job Doris. I love that Joys of the season cut!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.


  3. Still love this one :) So creative :)
