A Stocking, for your Christmas Giving! And some QUICK layouts to get those pages done too!
Hi, it's Penny here!
I have a template you may have seen...
I saw this and thought "Cottage Christmas" was PERFECT for it!
This template is a free download from Paper Trey Ink! (Click to see!)
It is a little box, the perfect size for treats or a treats AND a gift card! :)
I will admit it, I don't get my embossing folders out enough. I am a layout girl, with occasional "projects" and "home decor" sprinkled in... but they certainly add dimension easily to any project!
A little bit of ink, and the embossed pattern stands out!
The green you see on the heel of the boot, well I wanted a subtle green print... and the packaging (from the backs of the embellishment) was perfect for it! :)
Use EVERYTHING! :)
And as a bonus... I thought I would show you some layouts!
All five of these are included in a class I am teaching at my LSS, but you could make these in no time yourself!
A ton of easy but cute layouts, where you get to use your fun Imaginisce tools!
THIS layout, your i-bond tool (with some i-rock sprinkled in there too)!
You don't have to have a Christmas specific Cricut cartridge to make Holiday accents on your layouts! I used "Accent Essentials" to make these fantastic snowflake and adorable accents! And "Opposites Attract" for my fonts.

Whether you do these accordion fold flowers by hand, or use the Tim Holtz Sizzix die... they are a SNAP to glue together with the i-bond!
An easy way to "fancy up" your accordion flowers it to use a border punch on one edge, before folding. If it is a scalloped edge, you can use the indents has your fold marks!
This layout uses a ton of i-rock jewels!
TELL me you haven't started using the i-rock tool and kept telling yourself "...one, more... just one more. OH, but here!"
And finally, we can't forget the i-top!!
This tree is perfect for using all those scraps! You can vary the size of the strips, or make them more "regular", or even more irregular!
But they HAD to have some i-top ornaments!
