Some time filler activities

Hello!  I wanted to share a few projects I worked on last weekend when I needed to get my mind off the moving/finding a place to live dilema.  Lol.

I noticed some really neat try free for a week patterns in Cricut Craftroom and wanted to try one and I also tried some of the designs on my Gingerbread cart.  Here is what I came up with...

I'll start with the free cut pattern cards.  I have to admit, as pretty as the design was, I had a hard time finding a good way to adhere it to my card front.  As you can see on the first one, my first attempt was a major fail.  The other two turned out a little better.  On the last one I added some Hero Arts prisms glitter to the reindeer design.  I think that was my favorite one.

Next, my Gingerbread cuts.  Now, I did try to cut out the 'frosting', but it kept sticking too well to the mat and tore every time I tried to get it off.  I guess it's time to break down and buy the little spatula thingy.  Lol.  So, I decided to do some tangle designs on the cuts.  I think that turned out cute.  I'm going to do more of these and use them for gift tags.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day.

Saw your card over on MIM and wanted to come over and say hi. The card turned out really great. I love the reindeer design. I agree with another commenter, you can't tell at all that you had any problems with adhering the image.
