Glass block - nativity scene

Great and elegant way to decorate for the holidays. I found this design on one of my message boards. This is cut in gold vynl on my expression. I used ds and a blade setting of 2. Instead of transfer tape I used painters tape. Got the same results but much cheaper. I place the design on a piece of velum. Using glue dots I attached the velum to the glass block. I think it turned out very nice. Hope you enjoy.

Pour pledge into bulb about 2 tbls worth. Swirl around and dump out extra. Pour health amount of glitter into bulb. Swirl around and dump out extra. Replace the cap and your done. If you are a visual person you can go to

Snowman tile

Saw this on the cricut form and wanted to make it. Only I did not have those cartridges.....ugh! I used tear drop instead and letters are welded and 1 inch. Snowman is 3 inches from snow friends. Snow flakes are accent essentials various size from 1 to 3 inches.

I used my xyon machine for the letters, flakes and snowman. I used stickles on the snowflakes to make them pop a bit. Also used stickles for the snowman's buttons.
