Day 4 of 25 Days

Good morning crafty friends,
Whew!!! Day 4 is here! I can’t believe how quickly the time is flying by! I have a few more projects to share with you today, so I will get right to it!
Today’s theme is a departure from our Christmas related projects. We are once again, doing a calendar project so we are on the month of February. First up though, my darling niece Savannah is back to share her wonderful card creation.

Cricut Cartridges Used: Celebrations and Doodletype

February Calendar Page
PCW Files Used: Bear w Chocolate and Bear w Shortcake Standing Cutting Files
february calendar page-500b
Here is a view of the entire page. Again, I left enough room at the top so that once I am done with all the pages, I can bind them together.

Here is a close up of the sweet bear and heart filled candy. I love how this turned out!
february calendar top-500
Here is a close up of the top. I just welded some letters together quickly with my Pazzles to create the title and then added some of the extra candies I cut out. The two borders are punches, One a MS punch and the other an EK punch.
Here is just another shot of the candy on an angle to show their glittered tops and the dimension. I used some dots to give it just a little lift Smile

Sweetheart Layout
PCW Files Used: Bear w Chocolate and Bear w Shortcake Standing Cutting Files

For my last project today, I created this layout. Once again featuring the bear with chocolate cutting file as well as the bear with shortcake standing cutting file from PCW.

Here is the other little bear holding the top of the heart box. This is the same piecing I used on the calendar page, just on a much larger scale. This bear measures over 7” while the calendar bear is less than 4”.
