City Sidewalks Circut Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to the City Sidewalks Blog Hop - featuring the City Sidewalks Cricut Digital Collection.

It was hard to decide exactly what to do as I didn't want to add stamping to my projects (but that was not a requirement for this blog hop as I am sure that other consultants DID add stamping to their projects). I wanted to do what I could without adding any additional stamping to what I created and just use the Cricut collection and some small embellishments. 

I had two cards in mind - and both turned out completely different from what I had envisioned (isn't that always the case?) 

For the first one, I ended up using the maze and simply added a few of the other images along the way to add some interest. 

The second card was a lot more challenging... I waned to create a home scene with Santa and a tree... I needed a larger space in which to work so I chose to create a 6x6 card. The editing... it keeps turning those blue background dots to grey - they REALLY are blue! So with a half a tree and Santa on the run, I have a tree with presents below and something relatively close to what I was aiming to create. 

This digital collection has some neat images on it - there are terrific backgrounds and detailed and fun holiday images as well. 

Your next stop on the blog hop is Corinna Murphy's blog.
I'm sure she has something awesome to share with you.

Fantastic cards! The cuts on the first card must be so itty bitty. Very clever.

Both so great- I love the way the tree is peeking out from the frame on the second card.

Love them both! the maze with the added tree, holly, and snow flakes make a great card as well as all the details with Santa running from the tree and gifts. Lots of layers and details - tells a story. very impressive!

Love the maze, and of course using all cricut cuts and embellishments. And your Santa scene is adorable, again with all those cricut cuts. Great start on some cute Christmas cards.
