Design Team post for Craft Junkie Too!

Here is the design I made for Craft Junkie Too Project call this week. The theme was "Halloween is in the Air" and you had to make something that you could hang up. I decided to do a Trick or Treat banner complete with glitter! I used the Blackletter cartridge for the lettering. The paper is from Bazzill and the glitter is Stickles. The candy corn stickers are from EK Success.Hope you like it. I really had a good time making this one. Let me know what you think!
Have a great Wednesday!

First try at a holiday banner!

Well, I had seen so many beautiful holiday banners on the blogs so I decided that I would try one too. I was at an all-day crop last weekend and made this Halloween banner. I used George for the slotted ovals, and Happy Hauntings Vampire font with shadow for the lettering. I strung them together with a piece of black lace that kind of looks like spider webbing. I now have it hanging in the front window of my house. What do you think?

I have found a new way to use my Cricut. Now I am making a Thanksgiving one for my fireplace, a birthday one (because we have a bunch of birthdays coming up before the end of the year), and then maybe a Christmas one too.

Talk to you all soon. Have a great Tuesday!

A couple of cards

This Pumpkin Patch card is made from the October 31st cartridge. I used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo edge punch as well as the Leave it to Weaver from Fiskars to weave the ribbon through. This is now my new favorite punch.

Isn't the spider ribbon on there the cutest! Thanks Michelle for letting me use it. And thanks for inviting us over for a crop last weekend. I think that the spiders were cut from Doodlecharms and the stamp is from Stampin Up.

Trying my hand at Altered Composition Books!

Here are a couple of altered composition books that I made. I made the pink one during a class that was held at a weekend crop in Flagstaff, Arizona in September. The leopard one I tried on my own after I got back home. I still have some embellishing to do on it, but you get the idea. I used Destinations Cricut cartridge for the Safari. I had to order a paper drill and then I drilled the holes a little too far in from the edge. Oh well, live and learn! I used frilly yarn on this one because that was the only thing I had in my craft room to put on the binding.

Hope you like them. More to come. They will get better with time! Thanks for stopping.

I won a Martha Stewart Cake Bundle on the Cricut Circle Blog!

I can't believe it. The new Cricut Circle blog was having giveaways all day yesterday and I won a Martha Stewart Cake Bundle, including the cake machine and all 3 of her cake cartridges! I had been commenting all day for the giveaways and thought, "Oh, I will never win!" After dinner, I checked the blog and, to my surprise, my name was there! I think that just justified the amount of money I paid to join the Cricut Circle. It is a great group of people.

It is supposed to ship on Tuesday and I should have it by the weekend. Guess what I will be doing next weekend??!!
