Fantabulous Cricut Deck The Halls Crawl!

Welcome to Organized Chaos and the third Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!

In honor of the approaching Christmas holiday, we're having a
"Deck The Halls" Crawl!

Each Design Team member will be featuring an original Christmas/Holiday-themed project to decorate and spruce up their homes for the Holiday Season!

If you've come from visiting Leinad at Scrap-Stickle-Pop, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Deck The Halls" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?  :)

For my project...I made a sign for the wreath on my front door:
I recently got the new Car Decals cartridge and I've been wanting to make a little family sign for our house.  Since it's Christmas time, I decided to make a Winter-themed sign for my Winter wreath, to jazz it up a little!  The red sign came from Hobby Lobby last year in the Christmas section.  It was 50% of $5.00 at the time.  I used Cricut white vinyl to cut the winter characters (using the "Athlete" feature) from Car Decals at 2 1/2" and 3".  The snowflakes came from Joys of the Season, cut at 1".  The lettering is from Lyrical Letters, cut at 1/2".  It was super-simple to do and I just love the result!

Okie dokie, now for the details of the prize I'm giving away...

CTMH's "Felicity" Collection!
This set is valued over $30 and is no longer available!  It includes 3 color schemes, 6 pieces of double-sided decorative die cut papers, 6 pieces of double-sided beautiful patterned paper and an exclusive, and a full-size stamp set that includes flourishes, flowers, birds and an entire alphabet!

To be eligible to win this prize, you must:
1.  Be a follower of my blog, Organized Chaos.
2.  Leave a comment on this post telling me your MOST favorite cartridge (only one!) and why it's your "must have" cartridge!

That's it!  Easy peasy!  Now it's your turn! Let's see your Christmas/Holiday-Themed Decor projects! Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project!  And make sure to link up your project to FCCB no later than Sunday at midnight for chance to win the Grand Prize!

Next stop...Melin's blog, Cooking With Cricut. Go see what she has in store for you today... it's sure to knock your "stockings" off.  HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Happy Crawling!

Most favorite cartridge, the one I couldn't live without would be George. I can build almost anything from that and although, I don't care for the font of George, it is a font. Happy Christmas, Lori, thanks for all your hard work!

Great project! I haven't seen any projects from this cart yet, so thank you for sharing! My go-to cart is Alphalicious for all my lettering. I feel like I'm always popping that cart in my bug. Of course I could pick more shape carts but I'll leave it at that! lol Merry Christmas!

butterfly07 said...

Cute sign. I don't have much experience using my Cricut so I guess George would be my favorite because it's the only one that I have at the moment;)

CMC Laura said...

I only have a handful of cartridges, but my fav so far is the Creative Memories exclusive, Cheerful Seasons. I love that it has a little bit of everything, great for any layout!

Thanks for sharing your ideas!! Can't wait to see more as I became a follower too!!

Leinad said...

Your wreath is great and now I think I need to own the Car Decals cartridge! Your cuts are adorable. As for my favorite cartridge, that is a tough one, because I have quite a few, but since you asked for just one, I'm going to say Create a Critter - everything on that cartridge pieces so easily and it is so versatile! I love seeing your projects! Thanks for all the work you've put in on this Crawl! Merry Christmas!

Wow, this a really pretty wreath:) I have never attempted a wreath before. You did an amazing job. TFS. I want to do this one day. My favorite cartridge is Create a Critter and I use it a lot because I make a lot of fun birthday cards for kids.

I tried to leave a comment on Leinad's blog, the one right before you, but it wouldn't work. Hmmm, not sure why. I liked her wall hanging and I wanted her to know:)
