For My Sister...

Hiya !!
Hope your week is going well. Today I have a project that I created for my sister. She was looking for a gift idea for the Young Women that she works with at church for Christmas. I decided to do a .cut file to create a layered San Diego LDS temple.

The first thing I did after using my Cricut to cut out the pieces was to outline each piece using a Starburst pen. Have you used one of these on your projects before? I hope Sakura never stops making them. I LOVE them!  They add just a bit of shimmer right where you want it without the chunkiness of glitter.  Fab!

There are a number of vertical details on the San Diego Temple, many of which are some walls that are turned turned 45 degrees so that the corners come towards you. I used my scoring tool to add those details, as well as the lines that designate where many of the windows are.

Then, I stacked up and adhered all of the layers.  It may not be perfect but for those that are familiar with the building, I think it's a pretty good likeness. What do you think? HERE are some pictures of the iconic building found just off the I-5 freeway in La Jolla, California.

Well, gotta run. Lots to do today. Hope you all have a fantastic day!
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. This is AMAZING! Great job Jen! (like always!)

  2. Beautiful - Do you sell your file? I want to add one to our family white pictures wall, wedding, blessings and baptisms...Thanks!

  3. This particular one, and my other temple files, I don't. But if you'd like me to mail you one, please contact me via email and we can discuss. Thanks!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it!!
