Scrappin' Saturday: Christmas Layout and Hand-Drawn Face Tutorial

Happy Saturday!

You may remember one of our DT member's, Melinda's, super-cute critter face tutorial over at "Cooking With Cricut" that was featured here at FCCB a couple weeks ago...  Well, I'm very excited to introduce another fabulously-talented lady named Kendra from "Scrappin' Cricut" who also makes the most adorable paper doll faces on her pages!

Kenda has a FANTABULOUS "Christmas in July" layout that I want to share with you in honor of this week's "Christmas in July" challenge theme:

How adorable is that?!?!?  When I saw this layout, I not only noticed the adorable elements and amazing details, I noticed her cute Santa face.  After looking at several more of her layouts, I noticed that all of her page characters have those adorable faces.  Are they stamps?  NO!!!  She hand draws them herself!

AND, she's provided a step-by-step tutorial on her blog HERE!  Using the Cricut's Paper Doll cuts, she draws the faces and adds outfits to create these cuties.

Here are a few more of her adorable layouts and those super-cute faces:

Aren't we lucky that these super-talented ladies share their secrets with us so we can create beautiful creations like they do???  Thanks for the inspiration Kendra!!!  :)

Happy Scrappin'!
