I've decided I'm just going to go through Create A Critter 2 booklet and just use all the Christmas image cut outs!! Takes some of the thinking out for me!


Here's what I came up with this time:

Christmas Owl was cut from Create a Critter 2 cartridge at 4"

Sentiment tag was cut from Art Philosophy at 1.1".
Frame was cut at 2.5" from the Art Philosophy cartridge.
