Cricut You Are Here Collection Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cricut You Are Here Collection Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Brandi Robinson, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

This hop features inspiring projects created using the newly released You Are Here Cricut Collection.  I absolutely LOVE this new collection!  While on the surface, it looks like a travel-themed collection (which it definitely is!), there are lots and lots of great images and titles that can be used for so much more than just travel-themed projects.  Think holidays, school, sports, weddings, everyday life, etc. etc.  AND as always the cartridge includes a great font.  If you have not checked out this new collection, what are you waiting for??  You will LOVE it!!

In the spirit of thinking outside the box and beyond the intended theme of the collection, I chose to make a Christmas layout with the fun holiday images from pages 22 and 23 of the handbook.  (To view the complete You Are Here handbook, click here.)  I also used a great sketch from Splitcoast Stampers.  I love these sketches because they give dimensions for each of the paper layers.
