Twas the Night Before Christmas by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with a fun layout mixing a variety of cut files and cute embellishments from the darling Milk & Cookies collection.
I was so happy when I stumbled across these photos of my daughter getting ready for Santa a few year's back because they are a perfect compliment to these adorable papers!  I started by opening up each of the cut files in my Silhouette software and then setting my screen to view them at 100%.  I then could hold up my various die-cuts and stickers to decide on sizing and see how everything would fit together.
When all my pieces were cut and assembled, I added touches of stitching using my sewing machine and embellished my scene with various sprinkles to help the scene come alive!  As a final finishing touch, I paired the Christmas word die-cut from the odds & ends pack with the Love Letter alphabet stickers to complete my title. I just love how it all came together and the over-sized 12x12 clipboard is the perfect frame to display my finished work of art.
To create my scene today, I used the following cut files:
  • Milk & Cookies Fireplace- available HERE or HERE
  • Milk & Cookies Santa In Chair- available HERE or HERE
  • Milk & Cookies Tree- available HERE
I hope I've inspired you to mix some cut files with your other embellishments on a future project.  It's seriously so much fun!  ;)
