A Cricut Christmas Clock

Welcome to the second stop on the Christmas in July “anything goes” hop.  You should have arrived here from the wonderful Scrapalette’s blog.  Today’s hop promises to deliver a variety of projects and techniques, so make you stop and visit at each blog.

My project uses a Hobby Lobby clock that I “covered” in October Afternoon paper and embellished with Cricut elves from “A Quilted Christmas” and poinsettia made from leaves on the “Flower Shoppe” cartridge.  I simply trimmed away the stem and layered to create the poinsettia.  I added a few Pearl Pen dots and some Stickles to finish up the look.  I also added some Tim Holtz embellishments.


The elves are at 4″ tall, and I used the Cricut Craft Room.  I love the ease of hiding contours so you can cut the pieces you want in the paper you want.  It was a big help in cutting the girl elf and all of the little pieces.  I cut several layers of Papertrey Ink cardstock for the base layers of each elf.  The added dimension and stability are worth the cardstock investment.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today – please leave a comment to be entered for a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamps.

  1. Well I picked a good night to be too stressed to sleep. As I lay here on this uncomfortably hard floor checking my watch every 15 minutes, I can’t believe you chose a clock. Lol. It would have been a lot more fun to be looking at this clock obsessively while willing the sun to rise. The elves are so cute. Love your fun, whimsical patterned paper and those beautiful poinsettias. If only my screen weren’t 2″ x 1.5″ – I know I am missing lots of detail. I will be sure to come back and see what I missed here soon. Beautiful work, Sis. You impossibly get more impressive with each post.
