Getting the House ready for the Holidays

So I wanted to do something different this year with our Christmas Cards. We usually get a bunch of cards so I wanted to display them all in a fun way. I also wanted to do something for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. I did the blog hop on their page to get inspiration and then decided I wanted to use the Vinyl I have sitting around in my craft room. I only had brown, black, tan, cream, hot pink, and bright blue vinyl so I decided to go with black. Here is a picture of what I ended up doing.

Since we rent all the walls in our house are WHITE. BORING!! So, I cut out the Merry Christmas from the Joys of Christmas Cartridge on my Cricut. I cut the image at 11 1/2”, They were staked on top of each other but I decided to place them side by side. I used ticky tack and hung up the cards under the words. I have plenty of room on the wall to make the collage grow. And every day I get to add to it!

Here is a close up of the Merry Christmas

I hope you are all enjoying your December! I love this time of the year!
