Day Twelve is a canvas I made for my mantel. I have not done many projects like this so I was still learning as I went.
Lesson 1 - Transfer tape is your friend
Lesson 2 - Placing a book in the middle of the canvas makes the vinyl stick much better
Yay! All twelve projects are complete which includes 50 handmade cards, 20 tags, 6 pop up gift card holders, 7 hot cocoa sliders, 1 scrapbooking layout and 1 canvas!

It is December 16th - Crunch time! If you are making cards, I imagine you want them to be simple and quick. Here is my suggestion. It is from the Cricut cartridge Simple Pop Up Cards. This cartridge is included in the Design Space subscription.
I needed to put something on the outside.
I used a Crayola thin marker as well as my scoring tool on this card.

Welcome! Tags - everybody needs them... Here are a few ideas
Use a pen in your Cricut Explore. This was so quick to do!
Use pocket cards and add a few embellishments.
Chop up your holiday stacks of paper. I'm sure there are some tags hidden in your paper stacks.

I am amazed at all of the Star Wars merchandise in the stores this year with the new movie coming out. I usually try and do some holiday cards that are current on trending topics so I knew I needed some Star Wars cards this year.

I love this quote and thought it would be a funny card for my neighbours. I started working on it in Design Space with the fonts but ended up printing off wine bottle tags and trimming them. This card was super quick to put together!
You can find this printable at Oh My Creative
I hope to see you Monday for Day 5!

Welcome to Day 3 of Christmas projects!
I knew I needed to make an ugly sweater card this year because they are all the rage. Every single store seems to have them stocked (even non-clothing stores). For this card, I used the Cricut cartridge Sweater Weather. Love these "stitchy" cuts!

We all have those photos of a mischievous Elf on the Shelf. Now is the perfect time to scrapbook them! Our elf is named Ruby and she has a lot of fun in our home each December. I searched high and low to find a free Elf on the Shelf cut file. This one is from Crafting with Meek. I suggest cutting it quite large because there are some tiny pieces or print and cut it.
Our silly elf was playing with my daughter's Instax camera! Love those instant cameras.

Welcome to my twelve days of Christmas projects! I wanted to start off featuring hot cocoa sliders. I made these with an svg from myscrapchick. I love making these for my kids to give out at school to secretaries, teacher's aides or even friends.
Here are hot cocoa sliders that I have made in previous years! Enjoy and be sure to join me tomorrow for Day 2 of Christmas Projects!
