I've been playing with the City Sidewalks Cricut cartridge again!
I love the holiday village on the City Sidewalks Cricut collection and the overlay is perfect to create a snowy night sky. It is a great layout to display the pictures of your home's light display or other decorations or whatever it is that makes you feel like "Christmas Time Is Here".
If you like this layout, I've saved the file for you! Simply click on the link below to open it in your Design Space account. Then you are ready to start cutting!
IMPORTANT: Note that you will not be able to cut this file unless you have linked the City Sidewalks cartridge. If you do not have it yet, you can order it HERE. This cartridge retires on December 31, so don't put off getting your copy!
In addition, the "TIME IS HERE" is from the Flower Market cartridge. You order it (physical or digital) can change the text to your favorite font.
By the way, I also have a free Design Space file for the three City Sidewalks cards below. As I announced yesterday, you can get this file by signing up for my newsletter. (Available to new subscribers in December 2016 only.)

The rich colors of this layout are from our Enchantment color palette: Sapphire, Fern, New England Ivy, Pomegranate and Saffron. You just need one sheet of each. You will also need a sheet of Cocoa and three sheets of White Daisy.
To create village scene, cut pieces of the Saffron paper and adhere to the back of White layer to cover the holes for the windows and lamp light. Then attach the White (with Saffron pieces down) on top of the Cocoa piece. Finish off the shops and trees with the remaining pieces of Fern, New England Ivy and Pomegranate.
NOTE: There ate two tiny Pomegranate chimneys! I missed them and had to cut them by hand from scraps!
For the trees, layer the New England Ivy over the White bases to create snowy branches. Then finish them off with with the Cocoa trunks.
Once you have cut out all of the Cricut pieces, you can cut the three 4 x 6 photo mats from the remainder of the Fern cardstock. To assemble the layout, I used 3D foam tape liberally. I used the thin 3D tape under the village and regular 3D tape under the trees to add variety and depth.
I hope you've enjoyed this project and it inspires you to spend some time crafting this holiday season. To see more artwork I've created or pictures of all of the images, click here.
Happy Christmas Creating,
