Welcome to Erica's Craft Room 25 Days of Christmas, with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today and EVERY day in December.

I'll be sharing two projects with you.  Our theme today was "Animals".  I have a really cute page from a scrapbook album I wanted to share with you.  I'm sure that you'll be seeing a lot of Create a Critter today, but I wanted to highlight these two pups along side a tree from Heritage.  The idea is that the tree will include names of the family and the dogs will also be represented as members of the family too.  The paper is DCWV.
Above view, without leaves, on my messy table....

The Family name leaves.

A Close Up of the Pups..
 My second project to show you today is one I have been wanting to try for a while... Long before my three year old mastered the game, I developed a slight addiction to the game Angry Birds.  I'm the type of "gamer" though, that once I beat all of the levels I'm done with the game.  My sone, however, plays it constantly.  He loves "Ang-y Birds".  His Haloween pumpkin was an "Ang-y" Bird, and I searched like mad to find toddler sized Angry Bird apparel (they don't make it...  I had to have one custom done..!)  Anyway, as I began to make ornaments using my Cricut this year an awesome idea popped in my head.  Their design is simple, and I'd bet I can make it out of George.  Well (forgive me for this one....)  BY GEORGE I CAN!

Here is a screen shot of what the cuts look like on CCR:

In order: White, Black, Yellow

 The larger circle was supposed to be his underbelly.  I was using scraps.  Up until now, I had been using glossy outdoor vinyl.  This was the first WHITE Cricut brand indoor vinyl I had used on an ornament.  It did not work well.  The contour of an ornament needs plyability which you get with the ourdoor glossy stuff.  Not so much so with the matte indoor.

Anyway....  the final product:

He he he!  I can't wait to get more ornaments at the store and try to make the pig tomorrow!  I'll be sure to share if I do!

Thanks, as always for stopping by!  Have a happy crafty day!!
