Peek-a-Boo! It’s Christmas!!

Yah, I know. Thanksgiving first…. but, for the rest of the world, it’s time to prepare for the holiday season! Winter festivals, Christmas markets, spiced wine and yummy food… Whether you observe a religious holiday, or just the celebration of another year passed, excitement is in the air.

Not an Advent Calendar

I wanted to create something fun and unexpected with the latest cut file – Advent Calendar. I don’t have a need for an Advent calendar, but I thought that the idea of those little doors could turn into something else.

Technology is your friend!

It took me just a few minutes in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software to remove and adjust the peek-a-boo doors in the tree cut out file. Of course, I saved the layout so I can make more. Or, if I want, I can adjust the doors for another word or images!

Project Tutorial Video

I didn’t go into details on manipulating the cut file. If you need details on how to do that, check out this project. But, you will see how I created the rest of this card – with stenciling and how I did all the stamping to complete the project. Enjoy!

Fun, right?!

My Silhouette Cameo is definitely getting a work out these days with all the new cut files from There’s more to come, too! I may just have to think about upgrading my cutting machine as I have one of the original Cameos and the Cameo 4 is just now coming out. Hmmmm…. sounds like a great Christmas present!
