Christmas with the Cricut Home Decor' Tuesday

Hello!! I am Barb with Snowmanlover's Paperie. My project for, Home Decor' Tuesday is very simple. In fact these are so easy that these would be something fun you could make with your kids!
I used both the Mini Monograms Cartridge and also Winter Woodlands . I was trying to make Peppermint candies for the letters out of Mini Monograms but they did not turn out that way, so I just made the little Scallops from Mini Monograms instead, with the letters spelling Merry. But guess what? Now PC has a cart coming out with a Peppermint Candy tag!
These three items were made out of some frames I had around the house.

My little Elf!

Mini Monograms Cartridge
Basic Grey Double Sided Figgy Pudding Paper
Stampin'Up Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze Cardstock
Cranberry Cardstock and Peppermint Candies from my old stash
Stampin' Up Dimensionals and retired ribbon

Sleigh Frame

Winter Woodlands Cartridge
Basic Grey Figgy Pudding and Eskimo Kisses doube sided Paper
Stampin' Up Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Stampin' Up Stampin' Dimensionals, adhesive and retired ribbon

Snowman Frame

Winter Woodlands Cartridge
Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Buttons
Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Double Sided Paper
Core'dination's White Washed and Cranberry Cardstock
White Uni-ball Pen which turned pink on the Core'dinations Paper but I like it!

Remember yesterday's card? This little combo is going to be a gift for someone! Shhh!

I was all finished with my projects but saw this darling Gingerbread Man box and just had to add him to my holiday decorations.
I used Mini Monograms Cartridge for the little guy's buttons. These are made from the "stitched" scallop circles. I love that stitching. It is hard to see on the black but they are little cut out marks. I also used the cartridge for the little "ornaments" he is holding.

Other materials:
Patterned Paper from Hobby Lobby
Stampin' Up Basic Black Cardstock
Dress it Up Christmas Eve buttons
Ranger Silver Stickles
Stampin' Up White Uni-ball Pen and Stampin' Dimensionals to give it some pop.

I just love these little guys. I am going to make a whole bunch of them and line them up on my staircase. Besides being able to use them for Home Decor', they have a lid that comes off and you could use them for packaging too!

I love these frames, but help! I am craft challenged. How did you make these? Did you use Mod Podge? How do you cut them to fit the frame?

I have been so busy with the DGS's baseball mess that I haven't had any time to do much of anything these days. Whew, that is over so I plan on getting back into the grove of things. I have missed everyone myself♥ I was very refreshing to see you at my blog, thanks for the visit....
