Calendar Bears - January

Here is the next Calendar Bear in the Calendar Bear group.
This comes from the file Calendar Bears Jan-Mar.

I enlarged the file so that the piece would end up
being about 11 inches wide.

Some lucky teacher will be getting this set of calendar toppers
to use in her classroom.

Baking Christmas Cookies

The smells of Christmas goodies
fill our homes and tempt us to indulge.

The memories of making those goodies with family
are sure to be treasured.

This layout uses the file Baking Christmas Cookies.
I remember the days when I used to bake cookies
with my boys (they were much much younger then).

Polar Bears

Aren't these bears these cutest?

These bears come from the file Polar Bears.

So many of the files on Cuddly Cute Designs are versatile.
I choose to put these on some cards that I had made
up to have on hand for a time when
I need a quick card. Imagine having a bunch
of cute little pieces such as these
Polar Bears made up and being able to use
fast when needed. In no time, you would have a
homemade card to give to someone.
Better than a store-bought card any day.

Christmas Carols and Howling Cuties

These cute carolers and wolves have
joined to bring some Christmas joy
with music.

This layout uses two cut files:

I can just see those howling wolves singing along
with carolers as the fill the night air with
glad tidings.


Boating Cuties

Have you ever been on a boat
speeding through the water and feel the
wind and water on you?

For this layout, I used the cut file

I can't wait to use it to scrapbook
my memory of the boat ride
my father-in-law took me on.
It was my first time.

Holly Jolly Christmas Hop

HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS HOP
Welcome to the Cuddly Cute Designs HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS HOP!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and each of our Design Team members have created some delightful Christmas/Winter projects that will put the Holly and Jolly in your holiday scrapbooking, cardmaking, and decorating mojo!

You have reached The Cuddling Corner for Cuddly Cute Design crafts by Donette.

I have created 4 layouts to bring in some holiday cheer.

The first layout, Winter Break, I used the cut files
I needed the children to be smaller than the bus I
wanted to be sure and have all the details that the
file has on the sweaters so I used the png file
and made a print then cut image.

The second layout, Baked With Christmas Love, I used
a file from the digi part of Cuddly Cute Designs called
Digi Cute Designs. The file is called Baked with Christmas Love DSK.
The file has everything in it that you will need to make a double
page layout. Just print it out, cut and create. Add your
pictures and you have a cute layout to
save those memories.

The third layout, Gingerbread Making, I used the file
Gingerbread House. It was perfect for
the masterpiece my sons created out of gingerbread
one year for Christmas.

My last layout is a simple layout that I created with the file
CutieKins Elves. I used just the elves from the file
but there are also toys in the file that you can use as well.
I also created a Christmas grid for the layout. If you have stuck it out and read through my post and have come here for the blog, I am going to share my grid file
with you: https://design.cricut.com/#/design/114745464. Be sure to leave a comment and like my blog and
Facebook page: The Cuddling Corner for Cuddly Cute Design Crafts

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Very Merry Christmas
and happy crafting as always!

Bananas for Ice Cream

Who else has a family member that
is Bananas for Ice Cream?
I have two family members that are so
I knew I just had to make this layout.

The cut file I used was


Guess I better grab the camera the next time
they eat ice cream.

Bloom Where You are Planted

I thought some cheery colors
were in order. After the beautiful
autumn leaves have fallen and the snow
has yet to make an appearance, things get
kind of dull colorwise.

For this layout, I used two cut files.

CutieKins Ducks

My projects today show how
one file can be used in many ways.

First, I used CutieKins Ducks on a
summery bendi card.
Second, I used CutieKins Ducks on a
wintery layout with the ducks wearing
sweaters from the 
Christmas Sweaters cut file.
It was easy to do because their wings were
similar to the arms of the children
in the original file. Just glued the
sweater parts on the ducks.



Snow Puppy Pal - Thor

This summer we adopted a beautiful
Siberian puppy.
He has tons of energy but we
LOVE HIM.

For this cute layout, I used the cut file
Snow Puppy Pal.

His name is Thor. I can't wait to be able to
print the photo and put it on this layout.
The border and banner are from Cricut Design Space.



This House is Under Elf Surveillance

How many houses are under Elf surveillance?
At least parental "elf" surveillance.

I used three cute files for this layout. 

I used the boy Elf Cutie for the elf on the shelf.
I put one leg out to the side to hopefully look like
he was sitting on the shelf. I got the shelf from
Cricut Design Space. The stocking borders are from
the Christmas borders. There are several different
borders in that file. I used just two of the elves
from Elf tags for peekers on the photo mats.
I made the sentiment myself 
using the write option in Cricut Design Space.



Calendar Bears December

Over the next year, once a month, I 
will be sharing parts of a wonderful set
of files from Cuddly Cute Designs.
This set is called Calander Bears.

This month comes from Calendar Bears October - December.
I enlarged the file so that the piece would end up
being about 11 inches wide.

Some lucky teacher will be getting this set of calendar toppers
to use in her classroom.

I Wuf You

I have one more project from Digi Cute Designs.
Make sure to keep checking Digi Cute Designs as new files
are being added all the time.

The file I used was I Wuf You.
Those puppies have personality plus.

One of the puppies is a peeker looking
over the edge of the photo matt. The file comes
with its body too if you choose to use it another way.

I added some red ribbon in the bottom border for some
bling and to make the layout more my own design.
The possibilities are endless.
(See my out Digi Cute Designs posts
for sizing tips.)


Be sure to like my Facebook page

Got Carrots?

This week I have another
file from Digi Cute Designs.
New files are being added to it all the time.

The file I used was
I totally love those bunnies and can see
them on cards and Easter Layouts as well.

This file is a scrapbook kit.
You can use all of it of just the pieces you want.
If you print them the size they load, they are the
same size as used in the sample layout sample on
the website. You will need to resize the borders
by keeping the proportions as you lengthen them to 12 inches.
There is also, digital paper to print if you want that. You
will need to enlarge it too.
The pieces can be sized to any size you want them too.
Keep the same layout or make your own.

Indian Mouse

Now that Halloween has come and gone,
it is time to move on to
Thanksgiving.

How many things are you thankful for.
I have a lot to be thankful for including
my friend.

For my card today, I used the file Indian Mouse.

I used the png of the Indian Mouse for the card so I could get it
small. I also made the cut file to make a
paper piecing of it to use later in a layout.

"When I count my blessings, I count you twice."

Turtle Power

Did you know that Cuddly Cute Designs
also has another store on the
internet?

They do!
It is called Digi Cute Designs.
Still amazing cuteness but
it is all digital images that can
be printed off and used in any
project that you want to.
They also have 
Scrapbook kits that have everything
you need to make a layout (except glue, printer and
your pictures).

Since my printer doesn't print 12 inches,
I downloaded all the images to a Word document
(they download into the same size that Tami used
when she made the kit sample layouts so
if you want it just like or similar to what she did just
download and you didn't even have to
figure the sizes out). You can size them to whatever
size that you want also.
I sent them to our local printer. Once
they were printed I cut them out, glued them on
my layout and added wording and pictures.
It was that simple.

You can use the images as a print and cut as
long as you only want a size that works in the cutter's program.

I made my layouts just as Tami did to show how
easy and how the sizes download the way
she designed her layouts.

This layout is Turtle Power.



Hope you visit Digi Cute Designs and
take advantage of the wonderful
images there.

Scare Bears Witch & Mummy

Another cute file in Scare Bears collection.

Witches and Mummies could never
be cuter.
It's like magic!


Spooky Cutie Devils

Too Devilish cute!

This project uses the file

It's amazing what cute files designed
by Cuddly Cute Designs' Tami Gonzalez,
a cutting tool, paper, some ink, and glue
can turn into something so amazing.


Spooky Cutie Witch

More spooks coming your way.

This cutie is Spooky Cutie Witch.
Her cat and she are just too sweet to spook.
I put her with a Witch boot that I made. The pattern for the boot can be found on SVG Attic.

Oh Snap!

A fun Thanksgiving tradition is
the breaking of the wishbone.

is an awesome cute file to
create a layout with the fun photos
of the wishbone breaking at your house.



Pilgrim Bears

I can smell the pumpkin pies cooking
now. A favorite dessert in many
homes is Pumpkin Pie.
Looks like these bears love it too.

Pilgrim Bears is such
a versatile file.
I made a layout. How about: 
  • putting the bears on a card to welcome people to join your Thanksgiving feast, 
  • using them on place cards 
  • decorations for your door
  • put them in a fall floral arrangement
How many more can you think of?


Pumpkin Patch Ghosts

Couldn't resist making this cute file.

The expressions used in
Cuddly Cute Designs files
are so hard to resist.

These would be so cute as
large lawn or garden decorations
at Halloween time.

Scare Bears Bat & Spider

I was so excited to see the new
Halloween files that
Cuddly Cute Designs made that
I had to hurry and make them.


There are so many things that you can make with just
one file. I made 5 different kinds of
things with just this one file.
I am sure there are many more you
can come up with. 

Candy bar wrappers


Layouts


Card

Paperclip

3-inch squares do decorate many things or
add with other squares with different pictures for
a game of memory of hunt and seek.
 

How many more things can you come up with?
