In Campaign Cricut Cricut Made Day of the Dead dia de los muertos say it with cricut

Día de los Muertos #sayitwithcricut

This weekend we pre-celebrated Día de los Muertos among family and friends and we had such a wonderful time sharing stories and honoring our loved ones. Día de los Muertos, or also known as Day of the Dead, is an ancient celebration that celebrates life after death.  The day bridges two Christian observances, All Saints Day, November 1st, honoring children who have died, and All Souls Day, November 2nd, remembering all who have died. Many believe that this holiday is only celebrated in Mexico but indeed it's celebrated all around the world by many Christians. It's a celebration of life in which decorations are placed on graves of loved ones or altars are decorated with offerings such as food, drinks and special mementos placed alongside to the photographs of their deceased loved ones with the original purpose for the dead to return to their family home for a visit.
It truly is a beautiful holiday, a great opportunity to embrace family history and honor and remember loved ones. For the younger ones to be able to hear stories about loved ones that they never got the chance to meet and for others to continue to learn and share where they came from and be able to continue to live their legacy. Because after all words are powerful and they last a lifetime and this traditions are what keep family history alive.
There is so many fun activities that you and your familia can do for el Día de los Muertos but if there is one thing that you need to do celebrate this holiday, in our opinion that would be one amazing altar. We've partnered up with Cricut on their campaign #sayitwithcricut to bring you an altar that is simple but made with so much love. We decided to use the Cricut Explore Air to make a few of our decorations and they turned out so good. Just have to brag a little, but really have to give credit to Cricut for making Cricut Design Space so user friendly.

Now for those super fun colorful Calaveras "Skulls", you will find them under Autumn Celebrations in Design Space under Insert Images. My 9 year old helped me with this project and she thought it was super fun and easy to put together. We used cardstock and a Standard Grip Mat, the only tool we used for this project was the Spatula to lift cuts from the mat. 
For our last project we knew that we needed Papel Picado to give it the final touch and we found the perfect design with The TomKat Studio "Banner" also available in Design Space under Insert Images. This project took a little bit more patience and lots of more patience. Thankfully I had to catch up on "This is Us" such a good show. So all that patience paid off at the end. I used cardstock to make this banner and a Standard Grip Mat. This is were all the other Tools came in handy. You can access this Canvas
