Let's Clicut with Shellye!

First of all ....

Happy Halloween!!!
The costumes are planned and the candy is already making my kids giddy!!!
What about you?
Are you ready for the little ghosts & goblins to come knocking at your door?
Have a fun & safe night.

Well, today marks the end of our Clicut feature this past month.  We hope that you've enjoyed the variety of creations that our Design Team has come up with and that learned how incredibly easy it is to use the Clicut Retractable Pen Knife.

Today we have Shellye McDaniel sharing her talents with us.

I've made up many, many of these little altered houses over the years and have tried many different ways of cutting the paper...using the Clicut has been by far the easiest method yet!


 By laying the house onto the paper and cutting while turning the house, you get an even cut without gaps on one side or the other.  

For the roof, I punched the papers with a scalloped punch and then cut into strips using the Clicut, 14x14 i-mat and CutRight Acrylic Ruler.  


Covering the windows has always been a little tricky as well.  The Clicut cuts through paper like butter! 



Inside the windows I cut out a wreath from Candy Cane Forest Paper and the gingerbread boy and girl were also cut from the same paper.



Supplies: 
Clicut; 14x14 i-mat; CutRight Acrylic Ruler; i-rock setter; 
Hot Rocks Compact - Glitter; Christmas Cheer- Snowdrift 12 x 12 Paper; Christmas Joy 12 x 12 Paper; Candy Cane Forest 12 x 12 Paper; Christmas Cheer 5 x 7 Canvas Sticker; Pogo adhesive dispenser

Thanks Shellye.
This is a beautiful holiday creation!
