Here is building # 1 from the Winter Woodland Cartridge. I made this set last year with my baby bug. If you would like to see that series from last year. I will put the links at the bottom of this post.
This year I used my expression, but soon realized that it would be pretty close to last years size, unless I got a 12 x 24 mat. I also found it difficult to get 12 x 24 solid paper in colors I would like to use for houses. So I went to the craft store and bought poster board. I used my normal blade ( It's all I have) and it cut just fine on pressure max and blade 6. For this house I did not have the pressure set on max, since it was my first try. You can see the cut is not as crisp, but I was not about to waste a poster board, so I made due. The size was done on my gyspy to the larges size the mat would allow.
The wreath and the Noel banner came from Jolly Holidays. What a cute cartridge it is. It is my first lite that I have gotten and I am quite pleased.
Here are some links to my ones last year and also a link to a cricut post that tells the size of your paper for each house. Very nice resource.
