Family And Friends

Welcome to our "Family and Friends" Blog Hop where we are showcasing  the exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant. This will be our last Art Philosophy blog hop for 2012.
We will be showing you creations made using the Art Philosophy cartridge for our family and friends.
If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - Love 2 Create (link URL to blog hame:  If you came here from "  Darla's" blog, CAUTION: CRAFTING IS CONTAGIOUS!!! , then you're in the right place!

    This most adorable snowman! you may ask what does that have to do with family and friends? Well in My "Family" we love Snowmen for this time of year... we consider them our special Friends for the holiday! lol Seriously, we have them everywhere!! so to honor my families tradition I made one. 


Here it is in its New home :)

I used 3 different size "branch" Wreaths that I got at my local Dollar Store. I made a cute little scarf for it out of spare fabric I had lying around. The hat was made with a Square and rectangle. I Used the "Holly" on page 46 I cut the leaves at 2" and the Circles also at 2". Jazzed them up with some Glitter Gems I had left over from my Christmas card WOTG kit, and some Glitz glitter around the edges. 

I thought it might need something more, say like buttons. So I made 3 Rosettes in black ascending in size and also used the Glitter gems and added them to the middle. I used my handy dandy Glue Gun to adhere the 3 wreaths, the hat and buttons. This Project is SUPER easy and So SIMPLE!

I hope that you have Enjoyed my spin on my "Family and Friend" Creation!
