Happy Fright Night

Posted by on Aug 11, 2013 in Cards, Crafting, Cricut, Uncategorized | 9 comments

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  We took the kids to the State Fair–which they loved.  We only stayed for a few hours, since we had the baby with us–but, it was long enough to ride a few rides, eat some greasy fair food and see lots of fun stuff! One more week til school for our 2 older kids- and though I went down to make a teacher gift or two…I switched gears and went with Halloween instead.  I know I am a little crazy. Really, I just wanted to cut out this cute haunted house from the new CTMH Artbooking cartridge on page 71.  This cartridge has everything on it! If you haven’t swiped one up yet–you should! To keep the image at a size I knew would fit my tag,...

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!  Hope you had a great week!  Today, I wanted to show you how the Close to my Heart Artbooking cartridge is not only great for layouts and minibooks- but, it is also fantastic for card making!  I know I have a lot of cardmakers out there, so I didn’t want to leave you out.  Plus, I will also give you another peek at that amazing overlay button on this cartridge that I just LOVE, love, LOVE!   Here is my completed owl card using the Woodland Critters sentiment and the overlay from the Artbooking Cartridge. I had to add sequins–because I ordered a ton and I’ve been wanting to add them to everything! And, here is my twist on the Arrow overlay– turning it into a Snowflake card! It looks like a snowflake doesn’t it?...

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  If you missed it and want to see…yesterday we found out what we are having…and you can check that out here.  If you don’t want to know, then just keep reading this. While I was having fun in Cricut Craft Room the other day,  I decided to make this cute little Valentine’s card that I purchased from  I gave him some stickles on his back, and slid a scrap piece of green paper underneath his belly to give him a little contrast. I gave him a tiny little brown pearl for his eye, too!  I used the Be Mine stamp set from Pink by Design, and the DCWV Dots, Stripes & Plaids stack.  This is a good everyday kind of stack.   Have a great Thursday everyone, and see you back here tomorrow,  for...

Hey everyone, and Happy Wednesday!!  I hope you are having a great week!!  Today, I actually have a video for you using Cricut Craft Room.   Some of you may know, but others of you may not….Cricut Craft Room is a free downloadable software to use with your Cricut machines. You can use it kind of like you would a Gypsy, except it’s on your computer.  Plus, they have ‘digital’ files you can download onto Cricut Craft Room (CCR) that are available at  Although some of these files can be found on cartridges, a lot of them are exclusive to CCR.  For today’s project, I am using this one which is a digital exclusive.     For this sweet card I used DCWV’s Coral Couture, one of my FAVORITE Stacks from them.   You can find it at Joann’s...

Today I have a card featuring one of my favorite cartridges right now…Teddy Bear Parade.  Love this cartridge!

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!  I hope you are all having a FAB start to your December! Today, I am excited to share a couple sneak peeks of the Pink by Design release scheduled for Wednesday of this week! These 2 sneaks were done by my good friend Meriah, from Two Scraptastic Gals.    I love the vintage feel she gave this ‘vintage’ phone 😉  All sentiments are from a NEW 3×4 Half Pint set- I love these sets, because they are just $7.99 and they pack some MAJOR CUTENESS!  This cut is from Cricut Wild Card 2 – Love that cartridge! Don’t you love the baker’s twine on the phone cord? I absolutely LOVE this next one– she used the Cricut Suburbia Cartridge- which I have to get!! The colors are GORGEOUS!  Now, tell me who has a...
