New Year Bears

I can't believe that in 2 days we will be saying 
goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019.
This year has flown by sooooo fast.

For my layout this week, I used the file
I used the Print then Cut feature to make them
with the pngs in the file.
I printed them twice so that I could cut the parts
out that I wanted to stand out,
I used 3D Zots to give those
pieces (head, hands, feet, bows, etc) dimension.
I think they would be really cute on a card with the 
Wobble Springs on their heads.

Be sure to check out the Digi Cute Designs.
They have so much higher resolution than
the pngs in the cut files.

Santa's Watching

Has Santa been watching at your house?
He will soon be coming (2 more sleeps).

Santa's Watching is a perfect file to put on a
layout to remember the wonderment of that
Special night and day.

Owl Be Home For Christmas

When I saw the Owl Be Home for Christmas
I thought of the song sung by Bing Crosby called
I'll Be Home for Christmas.

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams.
The file can be found here: 

I made a grid using some images from
Cricut Design Space.
My son is in the Navy and every year I dream of him
coming home for Christmas. I miss him so much.
The image is "Welcome home soldier."
My son is a sailor so it is not quite right with the 
sailor hat and submarine but
I loved the saying. Being a grid I made,
I can change it or leave it.
If you would like the grid file, her IT is.
I'd be happy to help you make your own as well,

Christmas Fireplace and tags

What a fun and festive time of year!
Cuddly Cute Design's creator is making
tons of new files and might I say,
they are so Cuddly and Cute.

This layout uses 5 of those new files:

I created a grid using the Christmas Fireplace file.
I am not sure if it is shareable but here IT is.
If you would like to make your own grids, let me know.
I would be glad to help you.

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

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: Be sure to leave a comment and like my blog and

Have a Very Merry Christmas
