Meet Me Over on the Paper Boutique Today!

Wow!  How did it get to be Thanksgiving Week so fast?!  After celebrating (and eating!) with family, we like to decorate for Christmas.  In honor of that, I have put together a project for Linda at the Paper Boutique blog.



The Paper Boutique


I created a shadowbox (made to look like a gift) that features a light-up vignette inside!  I hope you will join me over there to see my project.  As always, I provide cut sizes and how-tos, including how to make a shadowbox, how to create a wood floor, how I created this custom figure, and how to add lights!






Just click on the button below to take you directly to my project post!

And exclusively on my blog...because I have gotten several emails from crafters wanting to re-create my projects, but stressed over the hand-cutting, I have provided a pattern for the legs.  This includes the finished shape for my lady on the ladder, as well as the single leg I used to create that and the bicycle-riding lady from a previous project.  Click here for the leg pattern for hand-cutting.  This is sized to work with Country Life (page 32 layer 2) cut at 7-1/2" relative size on the Imagine or E2. 






Best wishes for a very
Happy Thanksgiving!

Ciao, Nadia!

This is magnificent and so wonderfully detailed. I marvel at all of the details - love the tree branches, the ladder, the floor, the chair, and the boxes with the Nativity and all of the decorations. A truly lovely and warm Christmas vignette. Fantastico!

I keep thinking that you can't top the previous project... and then you go ahead and blast it out of the water! In a word... AMAZING!

ooo I really like this project as well! I saw your spotlight on the Cricut blog (caught our eye). Your work is amazing!!

I love looking at my carts' books upside down...I see so much more. You commented on the "Masks" I did in 2010 just after I started my blog and didn't known then, how to respond. Thank you! =)

Every-time I open something you've created I'm blown away. I love, love, love this one too. The details, the theme, the dimension. You're a true artist.
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving so much love, you're too kind!
