A Christmas Vinyl Village


I am so excited to show you our vinyl village in the main bathroom!  While out and about on Black Friday one of the treasures I found was a cricut lite Jolly Holidays cartridge on sale for $20.  I scooped it up as soon as I spotted it. 

(cricut.com)

It is so cute!  I love all of the images you can create with it.  I couldn't wait to use it so I got out my cricut and some vinyl and went to town.


Here is Santa on his way to deliver packages to good girls and boys.  To make two different kinds of deer I used the deer and the shadow of the deer.  And to make Santa face the right direction I had to flip him. 


I used all of the houses that were on the cartridge.  I love the little deer on the roof with her little hoof prints, tehe.  If you look close you can see Santa's foot prints and little legs sticking out of the chimney.


Each item has four layers to it.  The first layer is the background color, then the house color, then a silver color and on top of the silver went the white snow.  It took most of the day yesterday to create this scene but I had so much fun creating it that I didn't realize the hours going by.


Merry Christmas!

This is just adorable! I like to put Christmas decorations on the bathroom mirrors too - I will be on the look out for this!
Thank you so much for the blog award!! You are too kind! I would love to accept it - would it be okay if I did so on Friday? With much joy, I will include it in my Friday's Interlude section (if that is okay?!).
MANY MANY THANKS!!
Blessings all during this lovely season!
