Christmas is almost here

It's almost that time of year again.  I started Christmas Cards a while back but didn't get them all done.  Last night I woke up at about 2:30 and made a few cards.
I love Penny Black stamps, the two hedgehoge images are hers.  I coloured them with my copics.  The paper for them was Stampin Up, Pacific Point.  I didn't think I'd like this colour but I love it.  The sentiments on three of the cards is from Circle of Friendship (again Stampin Up).  On the snowman card I used Tempting Turquoise, and some patterned paper I got for Christmas last year.  The cuts were from one of the Creative Memories Cartridges, Cheerful Seasons.  The paper for the cuts were scraps (love when I get to use up scraps).
The final card is on white cardstock with Pacific Point again.  The snowflake was from Stampin Up Snowflake Spot.  The bar along the bottom is embossed with snowflakes from a Cuttlebug boarder embossing folder.

cutting cricut cartridge images with SCAL

Hi everyone, this is my first how to video.  First off I have to say that I lost my flip video, so I've done this video with my regular camera.  Not so great but I hope everyone can follow along.  Sometimes I need an image that is not on a cartridge I own, well there is a way to cut that image with SCAL, hope you enjoy.

I have removed the instrustions due to the "uproar" this is causing.  Please however see the last comment I posted.  This is not something I do all of the time, I only use it for a cart that I don't want to spend $119.00 for or for cart that is not available to Canadians.  I want 6 of the Lite Carts, but only 4 carts are available at any of the Walmarts here, and they are not the ones I want.  I want the Martha Stewart ones as well, but guess what, we can't buy those in Canada either.  With this method I am able to have what Provocraft won't provide to us Canadians.

I wasn't planning on making any halloween cards this year, but I saw so many wonderful cards I just had to start.  I used paper from K  & company, pumpkin pie paper from stampin up, unknown black paper for backing, all of the paper dolls were cut from scraps I had on hand.
