Chrstimas Santa's Sweet Gingerbread Man Box & MORE

Hi my crafty friends!
I just had to share this adorable Gingerbread man box with you today.
He was so fun to make and would make the perfect gift with some goodies tucked inside.
The best part is he is FREE along with the Santa's Sweets svg kit.
Look for the link below.

The Snowman box is from Mary & Leo's Christmas Open House kit from last year.

Great gift boxes for someone special on you list.

Mary & Leo are giving this Adorable Santa's Sweets kit FREE!
Yes, it's FREE

Remember my last post I said I had something exciting to share with you.
Keep reading :)
 First I want to show you what I made using vinyl.I like to use the industrial vinyl because
it cuts better and stays on whatever you place it on. Glass,wood, window etc. I just ordered this from Precision62
This is my first time ordering from him, but I've heard good reviews from all the gals. My shpment
should be here by Monday and I'll take pics to show you what I got :) Can't wait!
Vinyl cuts like butter and is so fun to use.
I picked up some glass decor blocks from Hobby Lobby and found this pretty design over
on the Cricut design Facebook site.
You ask, why would I be on a Cricut site, since I have Sizzix Eclip1 & Ecilps2 machines.
Keep reading :)

This is another glass decor block I made using blue vinyl and
added a pretty bow. The top is open so you can place lights in it. It's so  pretty at
night with all the shimmering lights.
Great night light!

I just couldn't stop cutting vinyl lol
I made these glass mugs for my family to use instead of having
glasses all over the house. :) I even placed their names on the other side
of the mugs so they know who's is who's. haha

I had so much fun making these mugs :) The scrolled heart Love was found
on the Cricut FB site and so was the manger scene.

This was made for my son that Loves cars.
  I think he will love it!

Mary & Leo have another FREE svg file for you.
Darling train!

Well my friends that's the special news I wanted to share with you.
Now I have the Cricut Explore machine and I LOVE it!

It cuts soooo quite that I can even talk on the phone while it's cutting :) You can
use all your svg cutting files and silhouette jpgs. The Design studio is web based. Meaning
that you have to log on to their web site to use it. It's not a stand alone like the Eclips Ecal
software. There are drawback using the Design studio when there are too many people using it and then it locks up. I'm sure after the New Year, they will be looking into that. You can link your cartridges if you like or just use their Free designs. I'm way past the cartridges since I've been using
svg, jpg and the trace feature in Ecal. All in all the Explore is above and beyond my expectations.
It's a Great machine!
They have super support and their Facebook site has so many nice people that
like to help and share with you. It's been a wonderful adventure. Now I need
 to start looking around for print shops that carry vinyl and stock up. LOL

I still Love my Sizzix Eclips and Eclips2 that I have!
They are my #1 machines!!!
Each machine is unique and if one
goes out, I have backups :)

That's it for another day my friends.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi there,

These are all such awesome creations. Love all the crafty Christmas ideas that I can do with vinyl. I am also inquiring on how to join Annette Yoakum's group.
Hope your family enjoys drinking from the mugs.
